This article is part of our FPL Waiver Wire series.
Forwards are dropping like flies, which makes Arsenal's upcoming schedule that much more enticing. Even if you don't like the Gunners, moves have to be made. Jamie Vardy appears fine with a calf issue, Sergio Aguero got a minor "kick to the knee" and Tammy Abraham is in Spain getting treatment for an ankle injury. Throw in the continued absences of Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane, and forward has become a wasteland.
Now is the time to stock up on Gunners with an upcoming schedule that features home matches against West Ham and Norwich City, as well as trips to Brighton and Southampton. While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang isn't considered a differential, youngster Edward Nketiah has started the last two league matches and midfielder Nicolas Pepe has turned into Kevin De Bruyne in that period. Fortunately, there are a few more options than usual because Wolverhampton also have a nice upcoming slate (Brighton, West Ham, Bournemouth, Aston Villa). Raul Jimenez is the third-most popular forward and rising, while Diogo Jota has been on a tear with six goals in his last three starts in all competitions. The bigger stretch would be to back Olivier Giroud with the hopes that he continues to start while Tammy Abraham is out. I'm not sure I'd add him, but he's definitely a differential.
