FPL Waiver Wire: Gameweek 5 Differentials

This article is part of our FPL Waiver Wire series.

The likes of Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Tammy Abraham helped a lot of fantasy owners before the break, but there were a few off-the-radar players who drew my eye and deserve more attention.

FPL DIFFERENTIALS

It wouldn't be surprising if Everton players were under-owned the rest of the season, as none of their midfielders or forwards are on more than 7.1 percent (Richarlison is slowly rising) of teams. The addition of Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi to the starting XI provided a needed spark in the attack against Wolverhampton. Gylfi Sigurdsson has often been a fantasy favorite of mine, but using Iwobi, Kean or Richarlison may be the better strategy. Richarlison had one assist last season, but I think working with Kean up front could add a few more to that total. Iwobi is a little harder to trust since playing time isn't guaranteed, but he's worth monitoring as a future add. Either way, it's a good time to buy into Everton with four of their next five matches against Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Burnley and West Ham. 

It's a similar situation for Tottenham because Harry Kane is their only player selected by more than 8.4 percent of teams. Christian Eriksen is stuck at Tottenham and has, at times, looked like a better fantasy player than Kane when in the squad. Kane is the goalscorer, but he's more expensive and has an ownership percentage 20 points higher. Eriksen is averaging 1.93 shots on target and 3.09 chances
