Fantrax EPL: Gameweek 21 Waiver Wire

Every Fantrax manager knows that Waiver Wire acquisitions can make or break your Fantasy EPL season. Our Gameweek 21 Waiver Wire article is here to help you pick up the best Draft Premier League players possible ahead of the next Fantrax waiver processing!

Essential reading before the Tuesday waiver requests process!


Gameweek 21 Waiver Wire

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well this gameweek and potentially be good pick ups for the upcoming period!


Alex Moreno

Position: Defender

Team: Aston Villa

Rostered: 9%

Next Fixture: SOU (A)

Prospects: The shiny new Villa LB features in Part Two of our Transfers Analysis articles by DraftLad and could be a sneaky add as Digne got so spooked by his arrival that he faked (realed?) a shoulder injury 10 minutes into the first game when Moreno was behind him on the bench. The Spaniard came on and did a decent job and will likely be considered the starter unless he drops the ball. Defenders worth streaming are few and far between, so finding a free agent gem is always a nice thing. Moreno was brought in for his attacking ability and that should compensate somewhat when compared to Digne's scores, which were propped up by taking a share of set pieces.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver pick or 5-7 FAB to get him.


Hakim Ziyech

Position: Midfielder

Team: Chelsea

Rostered: 37%

Next Fixture: LIV (A)

Prospects: Here's what we wrote about Ziyech last week, and we feel like a regular Nostradamus: "Aubameyang, Sterling and Pulisic are injured, Felix could not last a full game without getting sent off, so by process of elimination, Ziyech is about to start a few games in a row for Chelsea. Put a wet towel on any expectation you have of this pickup turning your season around, but plugging Ziyech in your midfield for a few games will not hurt any team. Well maybe real-life Chelsea, but you get my point. He gets points in Fantasy and that is all we care about." He should continue his ascend towards the sun until his eventual Icarus-esque fall. Fun (or sad, depending on your perspective) fact, attackers facing Liverpool this season average the highest fantasy points in the league. Get hyped Hakim!

Verdict: I would use a mid-range waiver pick or 5-7 FAB to get him.


Evan Ferguson

Position: Forward

Team: Brighton

Rostered: 39%

Next Fixture: LEI (A)

Prospects: The young Irishman has really hit the ground running and made us all forget about Dat Guy Welbz, as well as a certain Belgian who shall not be named for refusing to get on board the funnest, attackingest De Zerbi-est train in town. Ferguson fits in this well-oiled Brighton machine and gets goals, something they have been lacking for a long long time. Long may the reign of Evan continue.

Verdict: I would use a mid-range waiver pick or 5-7 FAB to get him.


Patrick Bamford

Position: Forward

Team: Leeds

Rostered: 46%

Next Fixture: BRF (H)

Prospects: PatBam is back and demanding a place in the Leeds attack. As much as Gnonto and Rodrigo have been amazing lately, Bamford is still the only true number 9 they have who has actually played for them, so we expect him to come into the team for GW21. With Sinisterra back and Rutter waiting in the wings, rotation will be the name of the game in the long run, but the stars seem to be aligned for a start against Brentford and a potential DGW in GW22 isn't that far away either.

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