Gameweek 19 Waiver Wire
Here we outline Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These are the low rostered players who could perform very well over the upcoming period!
*** It is officially COVID season!! Every one of the upcoming matches could be postponed, so I would advise against spending much on WW this time around.***
Rostered : 22%
Next Fixture: LEE (H)
Prospects: Liverpool's midfield is heavily depleted again and, as the Ox had a rest against Spurs, he is looking likely to feature on Boxing Day. He has been scoring and playing well when given the chance, so should be a lock in every lineup against a very poor Leeds side.
Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-3% of my FAB on Ox.
Team: Manchester United
Next Fixture: NEW (A)
Prospects: McTominay put in a stellar performance against Norwich, and the "McFred" combo is thriving. He will most likely be in the XI again, and it seems the pivot midfielder will be the most consistent point scorer for United. He is a must pickup for me and could have MID3 value each week.
Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 3-8% of my FAB on McTominay.
Next Fixture: WAT (H)
Prospects: Marcal has been a great deputy for Ait-Nouri since the young Frenchmen got injured during warmups in GW17. Both IRL and for fantasy purposes, the Brazilian left-back performed admirably and even if Ait-Nouri recovers quickly from his injury, I think he will struggle to get back into the team. The Brazilian is less of an attacking threat, but he still has the occasional return in that department as well (he had an assist chalked off through VAR this weekend).
Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 3-5% of my FAB on Marcal.
Mathias Jensen/Vitaly Janelt
Next Fixtures: BHA(A)
Prospects: Janelt had a great game last time around playing as LCB and Jensen is capable of being very hot one week and very cold the next. Brighton have been looking very poor recently, so I expect a well-rested and Toney-led Brentford team to get a W.
Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-2% of my FAB on either of the Brentford MIDs.
