The Waiver Wire: Gameweek 3

We love a good differential pick here at FF92 and we are BACK once again with our another crack at the Waiver Wire in 2022/23! Here are some low ownership assets that should serve you well in Gameweek 3 and beyond…

Joachim Anderson – Crystal Palace – Defender – 41% rostered

AKA the new nemesis of Darwin Nunez…despite the fact that he’s yet to keep any clean sheets this season, Joachim Anderson has scored well this season against tough opposition in Arsenal and Liverpool.

The Palace centre back has come away with useful scores of 7.25 and 7.5 despite three goal concessions and a yellow card and should be a very useful Fantrax defender going forward with his fixtures about to get much kinder, starting with a home fixture against Aston Villa in GW3.

Our defender slot was originally going to be awarded to Nottingham Forest’s Moussa Niakhate (3% rostered!) but it looks like a hamstring injury could keep the ghost point machine out for a few weeks. One to watch though!

Granit Xhaka – Arsenal – Midfielder – 15% rostered

Granit Xhaka has been firmly stuck to the “avoid” list for Fantrax managers for a long time thanks to his defensive role and his liking for a stupid yellow (red) card. After a goal and assist against Leicester from a more advanced role, are fortunes about to change for the Arsenal man?

His 13.5 ppg average isn’t going to be a long lasting thing but his role in an exciting looking Arsenal side should ensure he’s a useful asset this season. Many expected new signing Zinchenko to take his midfield spot but Xhaka’s early season form should ensure it’s still his place. A trip to Bournemouth presents another opportunity for Xhaka to score well.

Jordan Ayew – Crystal Palace – Forward – 21% rostered

Judging by the low ownership pool, the forward spot is looking like a very difficult one to stream this season! We’ve gone for Jordan Ayew who is the best of a pretty average bunch.

Ayew was Palace’s most threatening looking attacker in the opener against Arsenal, coming away with 12.5 points to show for it. His hard work doesn’t always translate to Fantrax points but on his day he’s still a very useful asset. A home game against Villa should lead to plenty of opportunities to get on the scoresheet for the first time this season.

Failing that, picking up a player like Michy Batshuayi who looks likely to move within the Premier League could be a decent shout.
