The Waiver Wire: Gameweek 7

We love a good differential pick here at FF92 and we are BACK once again with another crack at the Waiver Wire in 2022/23! Here are some low ownership assets that should serve you well in Gameweek 7 and beyond…

Luke Ayling – Leeds United – Defender – 2% Rostered

Rasmus Kristensen’s injury paved the way for a rare start for Leeds youngster Cody Drameh but a nightmareish 70 minutes will surely mean the experienced Luke Ayling returns for an appetizing GW7 fixture vs Nottingham Forest.

Leeds were given the runaround defensively by Brentford following a solid start to the season but Ayling made the most of his 19 minutes on the pitch, grabbing an assist in a 12 point cameo. Jesse Marsch will probably opt for Ayling on Monday night and he will get plenty of opportunities to bomb forward from right back against a Forest side that have conceded nine in their last two outings.

Cheick Doucoure – Crystal Palace – Midfielder – 9% rostered

Cheick Doucoure has been a valuable addition to the Crystal Palace midfield and he is quietly becoming a very useful asset in Fantrax too.

The Malian midfielder took a few weeks to find his feet in the Premier League but has looked like the full package in the last two weeks, grabbing an assist against Brentford in a 15.5 point haul before Saturday’s monstrous 17 points in a 0-0 draw against Newcastle.

Doucoure isn’t one who will find his name on the scoresheet very often but his all action, combative style should still mean he is 7/8 points per week player at a minimum and should be pretty fixture proof too.

Patson Daka – Leicester City – Forward – 15% Rostered

It’s panic stations at Leicester City after a disastrous start to the season has seen the former Champions slip to rock bottom of the Premier League. Their recent demise saw Brendan Rodgers ring the changes in their GW6 encounter with a new striker pairing in Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka benefitting. Although they were ripped apart by Brighton, there were promising signs from the two up top, particularly Daka who set up the opener for Iheanacho before scoring with aplomb himself.

Rodgers is still the manager at the time of writing but that may change by the time this article goes out. Whoever takes charge of The Foxes game against fellow strugglers Aston Villa, it’d be harsh of them to leave out the Zambian striker after such a promising display in his last outing.
