Differential Potential: Gameweek 10

A good differential pick is the difference between winning a crucial Fantrax matchup 99% of the time. It’s all very well (and also, essential) having a core of top players. However, that low ownership gem that no one thought of can, more often than not, be the difference between a narrow loss and a convincing win which leaves your rivals in awe of your football knowledge.

Each week on Fantasy Football 92, we pick a full eleven consisting of low ownership players which you can help yourselves to in your league in order to (hopefully) grab yourself the win. All of our differentials are 60% owned or lower.

Here are your picks for Gameweek 10…

Lukasz Fabianski – West Ham – Goalkeeper

West Ham stopper Lukasz Fabianski was the top scoring ‘keeper thanks to a clean sheet and 18 points against Tottenham in Gameweek 9. A trip to Aston Villa should keep Fabianski busy once again behind a solid looking Hammers back line.

Mathias Jorgensen – Brentford – Defender

One of our waiver wire picks this week: I’m liking the look of Mathias Jorgensen as a differential defender over the next few weeks. Narrow losses against tough opposition in GW8 and GW9 still brought encouraging scores of 9.5 and 14.5 points which bodes well for easier assignments to come against Burnley and Norwich City.

Diego Llorente – Leeds United – Defender

Operation target Norwich City. Sounds harsh but it has to be the policy at the moment! Diego Llorente is the man in focus here but, if available, Liam Cooper, Pascal Struijk, Junior Firpo (fitness depending) and Rodrigo should all be considered if available.

Dimitris Giannoulis – Norwich City – Defender

You’re never starting a Norwich defender away at Chelsea so Dimitris Giannoulis’s score from last week can be discarded. His scores of 15 against Burnley and 16.75 against Brighton are the ones that should be considered ahead of the Leeds United fixture this week, especially if Raphinha misses out through injury as expected. The Greek wing back should get plenty of chances to fly forward on Norwich’s left flank in a game between two struggling sides.

Mathias Jensen – Brentford – Midfielder

We tipped Mathias Jensen in our Differential XI in Gameweek 9 and he keeps his place this week thanks to his first assist of the season against Leicester. Brentford’s next two fixtures look great on paper, starting with this week’s trip to Burnley and Jensen’s dominance of set piece situations should give him plenty more chances to be involved in the goals.

Curtis Jones – Liverpool – Midfielder

Gameweek 9’s events have been symptomatic of Naby Keita’s Liverpool career as his best display in a Liverpool shirt was curtailed by Paul Pogba’s horrific tackle. The midfielder looks to be joining Thiago, James Milner and Harvey Elliot on the injury table, meaning Curtis Jones is likely to find himself included in the lineup to face Brighton this weekend. Anyone involved in that Liverpool attack should be considered in any fixture at the moment!

Mathias Antonsen Normann – Norwich City – Midfielder

As we mentioned in this week’s waiver wire article, the Mathias Antonsen Normann hype has died down massively over the last fortnight but there’s every chance it will return this week against fellow strugglers Leeds United. The Canaries are all but gone following a disastrous and this already feels like a must win game at Carrow Road. Any Norwich win will surely have Normann at the centre of it.

Juraj Kucka – Watford – Midfielder

A week is a long time in football! This time last week, Watford were reeling following a demoralizing home defeat in Claudio Ranieri’s debut against Liverpool. Fast forward a week and a convincing win over the Blue side of Merseyside has ensured the outlook at Vicarage Road is much rosier.

Midfielder Juraj Kucka was one of those on the scoresheet last week and he scored 20 points in Fantrax. He is proving to be a solid Fantrax asset and is well worth the pick up in another winnable fixture against Southampton this weekend.

Josh King – Watford – Forward

A week is a long time in football! The 5-2 win has us going double Watford and we can’t look past the main man Josh King who put his old team to the sword with a hat-trick on Saturday. He looks certain to be the man leading the line for The Hornets going forwards…

Cucho Hernandez – Watford – Forward

Make that triple Watford! I wouldn’t advise picking all three for this one week (although you could probably do worse) but if you can’t get hold of the more popular Josh King, Cucho Hernandez looks like he could be a very good option. He has been brought in from the cold by new manager Ranieri who clearly likes the look of the speedy Columbian. He claimed an assist from five key passes on Saturday and scored 21 points. Could be a great asset this week against a Southampton side who conceded twice against Burnley lsat week…

Maxwel Cornet – Burnley – Forward

…to this guy! Maxwel Cornet was tipped on FF92 last week and is featuring in our GW10 content thanks to his brace against Southampton. The new Burnley man is relishing his move to the Premier League, scoring three times already despite playing for a team that creates relatively few chances. If you’ve already got him, he’s a season keeper. If not, it’s time to make moves to get him in!
