The first weekend of the Premier League season saw the rise of the UF Underdogs, as several silver and base cards delivered big across the opening gameweek.
The Non-Gold Gems feature proved to be a useful tool for players this time last week, as Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma shot up the leaderboard with 13 points while Hwang Hee-Chan landed six points for his efforts for Wolves.
Four of the six players named last week picked up at least a point, so it could well be worth siding with the team’s selections for this week.
Once again, the UF Squad have scoured through the player list, naming six players that could well finish with a decent score at the end of Gameweek 2.
Here are the Non-Gold Gems for the second gameweek of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

Nathan Ake – Manchester City (v Bournemouth – H)
After starting against West Ham last week, Nathan Ake could be a safe bet to put into your team this week as Man City host the newly-promoted Bournemouth at the Etihad.
The Dutch centre-back claimed three points last week thanks to the clean sheet bonus and it’s likely he will get around the same score here.
Rasmus Kristensen – Leeds (v Southampton – A)
After a respectable debut at Elland Road last weekend, Rasmus Kristensen could be worth adding to your team when Leeds make the trip to St. Mary’s this weekend.
Southampton are one of the favourite for relegation this term and after being demolished by Spurs last week, it could well prove to be a good weekend for several Leeds defender cards.
Joseph Willock – Newcastle (v Brighton – A)
Following on from a proactive gameweek, Joseph Willock could well prove to be busy once again in the middle of the park for Newcastle.
The former Arsenal man claimed four points last weekend from tackles alone and he could likely hit that total again when the Magpies face a promising Brighton side.
Abdoulaye Doucoure – Everton (v Aston Villa – A)
Remaining in the tackle camp, Abdoulaye Doucoure proved to be a useful asset for his users last week after claiming six points despite not contributing in the goals or assist department.
The French midfielder registered four tackles and a shot on target against Chelsea and it seems fair to expect the same level of workload when Everton make the trip to Aston Villa on Saturday.
Daniel Podence – Wolves (v Fulham – H)
After scoring the opening goal against Leeds last week, Daniel Podence could make it two goals in two games when he takes on Fulham at Molineux this week.
The Portuguese winger hit double-figures in points last week and if he proves to be as threatening in front of goal as he was at Elland Road, he could well bag a nice total here.
Gabriel Martinelli – Arsenal (v Leicester – H)
Another silver gem from last weekend’s game, Gabriel Martinelli could be one to watch when Arsenal host Leicester at the Emirates.
The Brazilian forward opened the scoring against Crystal Palace and with the leaky backline that Leicester have, they’re likely to concede here.
