Gameweek 16 Waiver Wire

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!

Kaoru Mitoma

Position: Midfielder

Team: Brighton

Rostered: 34%

Next Fixture: AVL (H)

Prospects: My new personal favourite player. What more can be said about the new legend of Draft Fantasy? Those of you who follow me on Twitter will probably already be sick of me shouting this from the digital mountain-top and have turned off your notifications as a result. For those of you who thought the hype was peaking last week, I have got news for you, it is just beginning. He came in HOT in Robbie's Weekly ROS ranks in the 65th spot ahead of the likes of Thiago, Sterling, Willian, Harrison, Adama, Scammacca and MGW. Mark my words, the hype will only get worse before it gets better. He will surely creep into trade-high territory if he gets anything from GW16. But those who have been on the train early enough will hold on till the end.

Verdict: I would use a high-end waiver pick or 25-30% of your remaining FAB to get him.

Jordan Ayew

Position: Forward

Team: Crystal Palace

Rostered: 27%

Next Fixture: NOT (A)

Prospects: Ayew is not known for scoring a lot, goals or Fantasy points, but this season has been somewhat of an awakening for his fantasy value. Expected to be cast aside for the shiny new toy Olise, it has hardly been the case as Ayew, despite the fantasy community's calls, continues to start and produce decent fantasy points. With Forest coming up, it is a no brainer to start attacking assets. Who knows he might even come up with a return.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver pick or 0-3 FAB to get him.

Wilfried Gnonto

Position: Forward

Team: Leeds

Rostered: 1%

Next Fixture: TOT (A)

Prospects: As one hype train is gathering pace, the other one pulls up to the station behind it, welcoming new passengers. Willy Gnonto's signing was somewhat of a surprise from Leeds as attack was not really considered an issue of need for them. And to "plug a hole" with a young prospect, who is already an Italy international? Those familiar with continental football, had their heads scratching. After the announcement, he continued to ride the pine, on occasion not even making the matchday squad. His first cameo came against Liverpool where he was lively but not noteworthy. Then came last weekend, when he came on at half time and added flair, dribbling ability and all-around threat to Leeds' attack. He produced the longest carry leading to an assist in the EPL so far to set up the winning goal at the weekend and is likely to feature more and more after the World Cup. He could even start as early as this weekend over an out of form Harrison.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver pick or 0-3 FAB to get him.

Kieffer Moore

Position: Forward

Team: Bournemouth

Rostered: 26%

Next Fixture: EVE (H)

Prospects: An up-and-coming aerial merchant who produced a 28-point 2-goal masterclass against Spurs only to drop a measly 2.5 this past weekend. He is looking likely to start against Everton which has lately been a less frightening opponent to host, even for lower-ranked teams these last few weeks. Bournemouth almost got a result against Leeds and will look to try to dominate against Everton too, which could mean a decent day for the forward. FWD3 streamer material, but considering the usual state of the forward pool, I would be happy to pick him up.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver pick or 0-3 FAB to get him.
