Gameweek 27 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!

The following teams have double gameweek in GW27:

Burnley: cry, LEI

The following teams blank in GW27:




Dan Burn

Position: Defender

Team: Newcastle

Rostered: 16%

Next Fixture: bre (A)

Prospects: The big man has been solid since his switch up north in the heart of the Newcastle defence. More in real life solid than Fantrax solid, but you know what I mean. This recommendation comes more based on looking ahead at their fixture list than contemplating on past performances. After facing Brentford in GW27, a very nice fixture for defenders (3rd most favourable according to our Fixture Difficulty Tracker), they have two double gameweeks coming up, first against Brighton and Southampton, then against Chelsea and Everton. All five of those fixtures are decent so Burn could get comfortable in anyone's starting XI once waivers clear.

Verdict: I would use a mid-range waiver claim or 8-10% of my FAB on Burn.

Josh Brownhill

Position: Midfielder

Team: Burnley

Rostered: 14%

Next Fixture: cry (A), LEI (H)

Prospects: I have to be honest, I was not a believer. But a goal against Brighton made me see the light. Starting low upside assets who are on a double has always been a controversial subject (among the 57 of us who care deeply enough to talk about this), and Brownhill and Neves in GW26 are proving that even blind squirrels can find nuts sometimes, and they both have a guaranteed 90 minute shift in them. Anyways, Brownhill is nailed on to start both in the upcoming double as well and, although I do not expect him to reach 20-30 points, he will bring a solid enough floor to play.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-3% of my FAB on Brownhill.

Stuart Armstrong

Position: Midfielder

Team: Southampton

Rostered: 30%

Next Fixture: NOR (H)

Prospects: Armstrong has finally regained full fitness, and those of us who roster him are loving every minute. Come join us and bring him in too. Long considered the most talented player on Southampton, the Scotsman has struggled with injuries this season so was not worth holding so far. But all-action displays, goals, and popping up in very threatening positions, should have you excited about him once again. Oh and these are his upcoming fixtures: Norwich, Villa-Newcastle double, Watford, Burnley, Leeds.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 5-8% of my FAB on Armstrong.

Ashley Barnes/Jay Rodriguez

Position: Forward

Team: Burnley

Rostered: 5/3%

Next Fixtures: CRY (A), LEI (H)

Prospects: Every week I moan about the lack of sub 40% rostered forwards and this week it is no different. Either one of the Burnley boys will feature prominently in the upcoming double gameweek as Cornet is either 1. Playing on the wing, 2. Made of glass. Or both. My money is on recently healthy Austrian, Ashely Barnes, but this early before the GW starts, it is anyone's guess. Make a pick, do not overspend, and hope your guy starts.

Verdict: I would use a high-end waiver claim or 0-3% of my FAB on one of the Burnley forwards.
