At Fantasy Football Tips we are always on the lookout for new writers to join our FPL community. It is my pleasure to introduce our newest writer @FPLdog who will be taking a weekly look at differential players against the heavy hitters who are hitting your transfer pocket for the wrong reasons. If you like his article then why not give him a follow on Twitter.

FPL Differential Pick for GW10
I want to start off this blog post by saying that this will be based upon my FPL Team and how I am going to change things around to shoot up the Fantasy Premier League Rankings from now until Christmas or there about.
My Heavy Hitter that I want to get rid of this week is Memphis Depay, I have stuck it out with him over the last nine weeks, but I feel that this week, is the week he has to go. The stats, stack up to help my case, you'll find. One goal and one assist, for the supposed next "big thing" to come out of Holland since, probably Denis Bergkamp. In those games, he did get five and eight Fantasy points respectively though.
Still though, that is a major concern for Manchester United, how spent big money to praise him away from Liverpool, Tottenham and Paris St Germain. Twenty Five points is not a great return, with one goal, it is no wonder that his price has dropped from £8.5m to £8.3m. Especially, when you consider his Dutch midfield counterpart, Georginio Wijnaldum, who is worth £6.9m, at the moment, I expect that to raise, after his stellar performance against Norwich City in GW9.
Six goals scored, including 4 against Norwich as we have said, bagging him and any FPL manager who had him 25 points at least.
But, he is not our differential pick.
The GW10 Differential:
Our Differential for this weekend is Swansea City midfielder, Andre Ayew. Their upcoming matches, show that Andre Ayew could be set to reignite his season. If you take out the games against Arsenal and Liverpool, they have a very healthy chance of picking up wins against: Aston Villa, Norwich City and AFC Bournemouth. This also means that there are possible FPL points available for Ayew.
Four goals and one assist, has seen Andre Ayew take to the Premier League like a duck to water, at least in the first 9 weeks of the season. His best two weeks coming against Chelsea and Manchester United in away matches, scoring 10 and 13 points respectively, nice total considering that he is new to the League and the bad start Chelsea have had and Manchester United being on a run of good form coming into that game.
Plus, Andre Ayew comes in at an FPL cost saving compared to Memphis Depay. Ayew is worth £7.2m, a whole £1.1m under Depay's price and has the possibility of you spending money elsewhere on your FPL side.
So, for this GW10, what choice do you go with? Do you stick it out with the Dutchman and hope and pray that he will do his thing against Manchester City this weekend. Or do you go with the Differential, the Ghanaian, Ayew.
At the minute, Ayew has outscored Depay 48 – 25, if it were me, I would go with Andre Ayew but unfortunately, I can't get him in this week, without taking a -4 points hit.
But, what about you?
