The Waiver Wire: Gameweek 9

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 9 and beyond…

Armel Bella Kotchap – Southampton – Defender – 18% rostered

I’m annoyed at myself for not rostering Armel Bella Kotchap I’m at least one of my leagues in BGW8. Southampton we’re awful against Aston Villa but ABK continued his solid start to Premier League life with a defensive display that deserved better than the 1-0 loss it failed to avoid.

Bella Kotchap scored 11 points in another decent Fantrax showing despite the goal concession and faces Everton at home in a nice GW9 fixture. The clean sheets haven’t been easy to come by but you know that when they do arrive, the new Southampton man will be putting up some massive scores. A game against the goal shy Toffees represents a great chance.

Phillip Billing – Bournemouth – Midfielder – 14% rostered

Bournemouth’s fixtures are about to turn and now is the time to get on board a few of their Fantrax assets. Granted, they are few and far between but Phillip Billing has shown why he’s one of the better ones with two goals in two games.

His GW9 strike was part of a 22 point haul that very few will have seen coming against Newcastle and a home game against Brentford after the international break gives the Cherries a chance to claim their first win since the opening day.

Most of the Bournemouth Fantrax talk was around Marcus Tavernier but Billing has surpassed his fellow midfielder for now as the most exciting Cherries asset.

Willian – Fulham – Forward – 22% rostered

He’s back! Anyone who’s read our articles for longer than a year will know that Willian holds a special place on Team FF92 for reasons best demonstrated by his return to Premier League action against Nottingham Forest.

An assist and 15.5 points was a flashback to the Chelsea Willian rather than the Arsenal one who was massively disappointing a couple of years ago. Back in his favoured left wing role and on some set pieces, the Brazilian should provide decent value as a FWD3 in a kind run of fixtures for his Fulham side.
