Differential Potential: Gameweek 13

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 13…

Ben Foster – Watford – Goalkeeper

He won’t get assists every week but Ben Foster is putting up good numbers consistently as he is a busy goalkeeper! This week should be no different as Claudio Ranieri takes charge against his former side in desperate search of that first clean sheet.

Rayan Ait-Nouri – Wolves – Defender

In the absence of Marcal, Rayan Ait-Nouri has done himself no harm in securing that left wing back spot at Wolves. Last week he managed a very decent haul of 20.5 points including four key passes and should score well against lowly Norwich this week.

Ben Davies – Tottenham – Defender

Ben Davies has been trusted by new manager Antonio Conte in that LCB spot in their new system and has made the most of it so far. Although his points scoring hasn’t been remarkable, Davies has been solid and is always capable of attacking return when marauding up the field from his defensive position.

Ibrahima Konate – Liverpool – Defender

This one is a bit of a punt but three games in the space of a week is a rarity for injury prone Joel Matip. Having started in the Champions League game on Wednesday after 90 minutes against Arsenal, I can see Ibou Konate getting the start against Southampton.

Grant Hanley – Norwich – Defender

Can Dean Smith spark a revival at Norwich City? Grant Hanley will be the backbone of an improving defence if so. He’s scored well despite The Canaries troubles so far and grabbed the winner in last week’s win against Southampton. He will be a central part of any Norwich revival and will be a great asset if they can turn those goal concessions from 2s and 3s to 0s and 1s.

Jonjo Shelvey – Newcastle – Midfielder

Most were surprised when Eddie Howe reportedly declared that he intends to build his Newcastle team round Jonjo Shelvey. However, the midfielder performed well in Howe’s first game with 5 key passes contributing to 14 points. Another good outing will be on the menu v Arsenal before the Toon welcome Norwich in midweek.

Daniel Podence – Wolves – Midfielder

A great performance from Daniel Podence last week should see him keep his place v Norwich. He had everything needed to be a very useful Fantrax asset and should find plenty opportunities to accumulate those key passes once again this week.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain – Liverpool – Midfielder

It’s anyone’s guess how Liverpool’s midfield three will line up this week. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain has performed superbly in recent weeks and would be unlucky to lose his place ahead of the visit of former employers Southampton this weekend.

Joelinton – Newcastle – Forward

New manager bounce! Joelinton was unrecognisable last week with his first goal of the season contributing towards 25.5 points against Brentford. Get him in ready for those games vs Norwich and Burnley but don’t be surprised if he scores well vs Arsenal this weekend.

Teemu Pukki – Norwich – Forward

Another benefiting from a new manager bounce…Teemu Pukki has a 100% strike rate under new boss Dean Smith and will be hopeful of maintaining that against a completely unpredictable Wolves side!

Sergi Canos – Brentford – Forward

Sergi Canos has struggled since his opening day points bonanza but cashed in against Newcastle, claiming two assists in the 3-3 draw. He seems to be joining the attack a lot more now and will look to continue to do so against an Everton team that generally concede plenty of chances.
