The Waiver Wire: Gameweek 2

We love a good differential pick here at FF92 and we are BACK once again with our first crack at the Waiver Wire in 2022/23! Here are some low ownership assets that should serve you well in Gameweek 2 and beyond…

Shane Duffy – Defender – 3% Rostered

Old Togga/Fantrax favourite Shane Duffy is finally back in business! As one of the original aerial winning kings, the big Irish centre back was in demand thanks to his ability to pick up ghost points like they were going out of fashion back in the day.

He showed glimpses of this at the start of last season, scoring 18.5 points on the opening day without a clean sheet, followed by scores of 26, 3.25, 12.75, 16.75, 9.25, 13.75 and 11.75 before eventually losing his place in the team again in the new year.

Now at Fulham, Duffy should be sure to start and in prime position to continue his heroics of yesteryear. He may not start immediately thanks to his new club’s fine opening day display against Liverpool but the big man hasn’t gone to Fulham to make up the numbers and will be 100% worth rostering once he is in the lineup.

Moises Caicedo – Brighton – Midfielder – 13% Rostered

Moises Caicedo played a starring role in Brighton’s 4-0 demolition of Manchester United at the end of last season. Fast forward to the beginning of this season and he’s done exactly the same!

It can’t be seen as much of a shock to see Brighton beat the Red Devils at Old Trafford on the opening weekend as Graham Potter has the Seagulls looking like a really impressive outift this season whereas United…still aren’t. Caicedo was absolutely everywhere for the away side, driving them forward and creating chances for others at every available opportunity.

Thirteen points was his reward and he has all the attributes needed to suggest that this score won’t be a one off this season. He looks like a top player destined for great things!

Hwang Hee-Chan – Wolves – Forward – 22% Rostered

He won’t have been on many draft boards this summer but the injury to Raul Jimenez appears to have given Hwang Hee-Chan the chance to show why Bruno Lage rates him so highly.

He certainly enjoyed his opening day salvo, laying the ball off for an assist to Daniel Podence in a performance that bagged him 15.5 points in Fantrax. Hwang is likely to start up front again for Wolves at home to Fulham at the weekend and I fancy him to score well again this week.

He did more in terms of creativity than anything else but you’d fancy him to get chances himself playing at home against a newly promoted side and may keep hold of that central role all the way up until the return of Jimenez.
