The Waiver Wire: Gameweek 12

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 12 and beyond…

Joe Gomez – Liverpool – Defender – 40% rostered

Most will have predicted a field day for Erling Haaland and co when Liverpool’s starting back four was announced on Sunday afternoon. Therefore, no one expected that the Reds would be the first to cause the Norwegian goal scoring machine to be halted by Joe Gomez and his side as City drew their first goal scoring blank of the season.

Gomez had come in for some criticism at the start of the season but he stepped up against the champions and was man of the match in the absence of Joel Matip and Ibou Konate. It’s expected that he will continue to partner Virgil Van Dijk with kinder fixtures to come against West Ham in midweek and for the trip to Nottingham Forest next Saturday.

Ryan Christie – Bournemouth – Midfielder – 6% rostered

The fact that since Bournemouth were subject of a nine goal demolition at Anfield they’re the only unbeaten side in the Premier League is a pretty crazy one! The Cherries are stubborn at the back with a dangerous attach, largely thanks to Dominic Solanke and Philip Billing.

However, low ownership differential Ryan Christie should not be ignored after he scored 25.5 points over his last two outings. The Scottish winger got on the scoresheet in GW10 in a game where he managed five shots at goal, followed by a useful eight points against Fulham on Saturday.

Struggling Southampton are next in town in a south coast clash in midweek and Christie looks sure to get plenty of opportunities to show how dangerous he can be once more.

Willian – Fulham – Forward – 23% rostered

Once again, pickings are slim in the forward department. With Adama Traore no longer a differential option, fellow former Fantrax favourite Willian is our featured forward this week.

The Brazilian’s full debut (albeit against Nottingham Forest) was a promising one as he scored 15.5 points with an assist but Willian has failed to start since. Now he appears to back to fitness and should be expected to start against a pretty woeful looking Aston Villa side. His share of set pieces and Villa’s defensive weakness should ensure Willian is a decent option in GW12.
