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 (an albeit, diminished) Gameweek 10 and beyond…
Ashley Young – Aston Villa – Defender – 3% rostered
We kick off this week’s waiver picks with the little fancied Ashley Young. Villa’s utility man rarely scores well on the ghost point front but it was a different story this week against Leeds when a busy performance saw him score 21.25 in a 0-0 draw.
Much of Young’s afternoon was spent on the front foot and that will be the case once again in GW10 where his Villa side take on a struggling Nottingham Forest side. With Matty Cash still short of fitness and Lucas Digne and Ludwig Augustinsson sidelined, the veteran full back is set to start again, most likely at left back. Just 3% rostered too…
Mikkel Damsgaard – Brentford – Midfielder – 28% rostered
Mikkel Damsgaard finally got his first Premier League start for Brentford in GW9 and showed glimpses of being the useful Fantrax asset we all hoped he might be. The creative Danish midfielder lined up wide on the left of the front three and, although he only got 60 minutes under his belt, he scored a useful nine points including two shots on target and a key pass.
Damsgaard’s minutes should keep increasing as his fitness improves and he’s an asset I’m excited to roster for the rest of this season, especially once he builds up an understanding with the prolific Ivan Toney.
Adama Traore – Wolves – Forward – 23% rostered
No one needs a new manager bounce quite as much as Adama Traore does. Bruno Lage was the latest boss to sideline the Spanish Speedster but with the Portuguese man shown the Molineux exit door, Adama may get a chance at his latest redemption.
Let’s face it, Wolves need a creative spark and Traore is the most likely to bring it, especially with Pedro Neto set for a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury. His next test at Chelsea (if he even starts) is certainly a tough one but the Wolves bulldozer has proven he is fixture proof in the past, especially when his side are forced to counter attack.
It’s far from guaranteed that Traore is in the new manager’s immediate plans but if you have a space in your roster for a speculative add with FWD1 upside, Adama is a no brainer!
