Gameweek 29 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 GW29:

Arsenal: LEI, LIV

Brighton: LIV, TOT

Everton: WOL, NEW

Liverpool: bha, ars

Newcastle: che, eve

Tottenham: mun, bha

Luke Ayling

Position: Defender

Team: Leeds

Rostered: 38%

Next Fixture: NOR (H)

Prospects: Yes, I am mentioning Leeds defenders for the second time in a row, and you can pencil in Liam Cooper for next week's WW article as well, cause Leeds have a very nice run and crucially, they are one of the few teams who have a fixture in GW30. I would not go so far as to try to trade for their players, but I am expecting the American flavour to bring the new manager bump in the upcoming gameweeks.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-1% of my FAB on Ayling


Cedric Soares

Position: Defender

Team: Arsenal

Rostered: 8%

Next Fixture: LEI (H), LIV (H)

Prospects: With Tomiyasu out and no word on his imminent return, it looks like Soares is here to stay in the starting XI. On paper this double is not one that offers much of a chance of clean sheets, but, Cedric has been collecting ghost points at a very steady pace, so I would have no problem starting him for the double and then for the GW30 fixture.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-1% of my FAB on Soares.

Bruno Guimaraes

Position: Midfielder

Team: Newcastle

Rostered: 33%

Next Fixture: CHE (A). EVE (A)

Prospects: I will be honest, I dropped Bruno in the only league I had him to field an XI in GW28. That is not to say I will not be picking him back up this time around. He has surely been frustrating his managers since his arrival in the league. Touted as a marquee signing by us among others, Bruno has failed to crack the first team since his arrival. When questioned, Howe vowed that the Brazilian will see plenty of action in the coming weeks and kudos to Howe for resisting tinkering and staying with the hot hand. That said, after what feels like an infinite number of sub appearances, I am going out on a limb and saying he is getting 2 starts and 160+ minutes in the upcoming double. (I said this last week as well, so I definitely have egg on my face)

Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 5-8% of my FAB on Bruno.


Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Position: Midfielder

Team: Leicester

Rostered: 11%

Next Fixtures: ARS (A)

Prospects: Do not sleep on KDH! He has been one of the best players for Leicester this year and has been steadily bringing in points for his managers in our fantasy game too. A solid floor with some upside and guaranteed minutes will win you games in the minimum 3 (three) DGWs they are about to have ROS, as well as Leicester playing in GW30! Pick him up now and plug him in if you have been shafted by rotation. You will not regret it.

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