Gameweek 2 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!

Fabian Schar

Position: Defender

Team: Newcastle

Rostered: 10%

Next 3 Fixtures: BHA (A), MCI (H), WOL (A)

Prospects: What a game, the Swiss wizard has had. The second most points in GW1, aided by a goal and a clean sheet in a professional dispatching of Forest. Schar has always had a knack for getting on the scoresheet, but even without a goal, he would have earned a recommendation in the WW article. His spot should be pretty secure in the Newcastle back line and once Botman is up to speed, the defensive improvement will be even more palpable. Although I would not play him against a top 6 side, he might be a mid-to-long-term keeper, if your squad allows you to sit him against the big dogs.

Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 1-3 FAB to get him.

Moises Caicedo

Position: Midfielder

Team: Brighton

Rostered: 12%

Next 3 Fixtures: NEW (H), WHU (A), LEE (H)

Prospects: Here we are again... recommending a Brighton midfielder who had a great game, ghost points galore. Like Moder, Mac Allister, Mwepu and many before him, Caicedo is in no way guaranteed to be the ghost point god he appears after GW1, but sure enough, we should by now keep an eye out for unknown Brighton midfielders in the starting XI.

Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 1-5FAB to get him.

Moussa Djenepo

Position: Midfielder

Team: Southampton

Rostered: 1%

Next 3 Fixtures: LEE (H), LEI (A), MUN (H)

Prospects: Djenepo looks like he will make the left wing-back role his for the time being at Southampton. Him being classified as a midfielder actually helps his points total, as clean sheets will not be a frequent occurrence in the near future for the south coasters. A frantic, high-tempo game at Leeds will most likely suit Djenepo's style, so I am expecting ghost points as well as possibly another return.

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

Manuel Lanzini

Position: Midfielder

Team: West Ham

Rostered: 23%

Next 3 Fixtures: NOT (A), BHA (H), AVL (A)

Prospects: He was anonymous, just like most of his teammates, as they stood idly by to see Haaland announce his arrival in the Premier League. In the next few games, however, he could really turn up and deliver for the Hammers. There are a lot of changes happening in the front line at West Ham, with Scammaca and Cornet already signed, but the Argentinian midfielder seems safe for now as his organising skills on the pitch will surely be vital for the new-look Hammers to start clicking into gear.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 1-3 FAB to get him.
