Gameweek 13 Waiver Wire

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Targets that have 40% ownership or below on Fantrax.  These are the low ownership players who could perform very well over the upcoming period!


Daniel Podence

Position: Midfielder

Team: Wolves

Ownership: 33%

Next 3 Fixtures: Nor (A), BUR (H), LIV (H)

Prospects: Podence assisted the lone goal in the Wolves game this weekend. He looked very sharp, and is a safe bet to be in the XI vs. Norwich. Although Norwich may be on a high after beating Saints, I do expect there to be plenty of chances for a goal for Wolves. If Podence gets another return, he could start to make that attacking spot his own ahead of Adama and Trincao.

Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 5-7% of my FAB on Podence.


Jonjo Shelvey

Position: Midfielder

Team: Newcastle

Ownership: 8%

Next 3 Fixtures: ars (A), NOR (H), BUR (H)

Prospects: Personally I have always been a big Shelvey fan, and Howe seems to think he will be their key man this season. He is a must pickup for me ahead of a decent run of games, and someone who could offer great MID3 value. Shelvey got 14 ghost points this week and was unlucky to not get an assist as well. The midfielder should be a lock in the XI every week with the only risk being his tendency to receive bookings.

Verdict: I would use a high-end waiver claim or 7-10% of my FAB on Shelvey.

Donny Van de Beek

Position: Midfielder

Team: Manchester United

Ownership: 9%

Next 3 Fixtures: che (A), ARS (H), CPL (H)

Prospects: Van de Beek came on at half against Watford and gave United a fighting chance. Him and Sancho are the only two players who can hold their heads high after this game. With Ole out the door, Van de Beek could be an integral part of the new manager's plan. At the end of the day, Van de Beek is just a more talented player than any of Matic, Fred, or McTominay. Surely at the very least he gets a chance. He has the upside of a MID3, but is most likely going to be a low end MID4.

Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 5-7% of my FAB on Van de Beek.


Adam Webster

Position: Defender

Team: Brighton

Ownership: 8%

Next 3 Fixtures: LEE (H), whu (A), sou (A)

Prospects: Webster was back in the XI for Brighton, and despite conceding two late goals, still managed 6.25 points. Webster has a good chance to lock down a spot in the XI for Brighton, and should score fairly well over the next few gameweeks. He is worth a punt as a DEF2/3 in the short term, and could provide some trade value down the road. His next 3 fixtures are pretty friendly to defenders, especially against a Leeds team that struggles to defend set-pieces. Brighton have a plethora of injuries but when everyone is fit Webster will hope to still be in the first choice XI.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-2% of my FAB on Webster.
