Gameweek 3 Waiver Wire
Here we outline Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Targets that have 40% ownership or below on Fantrax. These are the low ownership players who could perform very well over the upcoming period!
Not classically a part of our WW article, we wanted to remind you that Odegaard will be hitting waivers in most leagues this Tuesday. I would recommend using a higher mid-range waiver pick or 25-55% of your FAB budget on him depending on team need.
Next 5 Fixtures: new, WHU, mci, WOL, che
Prospects: Tino, as he is affectionately called by his fans, is one of the seemingly thousands of Chelsea academy prospects who got a move away from Cobham this off-season in order to get a chance at first team football. A lot of unflattering things can be said about Hasenhüttl's Southampton, but playing a wing-back role there is one of the better gigs a young talent can aim for. After a slow start in GW1, Livramento took the game to the United defence in GW2 and managed to score 9 points in the process. By no means is he a season-long hold, but his next 2 gameweeks are favourable so he could be short-term stopgap, with a lot of upside.
Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or about 2-5% of my FAB on him due to the short-term nature of the pickup.
Next 5 Fixtures: WAT, cry, CHE, ars, AVL
Prospects: It looks like Tanganga impressed Nuno a lot and jumped ahead of the new boss's former disciple, Matt Doherty and the always exciting, always unreliable Serge Aurier in the Spurs RB pecking order. Two solid performances and clean sheets from the youngster will surely inspire confidence from Spurs fans, and with the next 2 fixtures being relatively easy, Tanganga will go from strength to strength.
Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 2-5% of my FAB.
Alexis Mac Allister
Next 5 Fixtures: EVE, bre, LEI, cry, ARS
Prospects: Brighton have a LOT of players and Potter loves to rotate them. That said, the Scottish-sounding Argentinian has been impressive in an attacking role every time he played last season and has continued to provide a spark in the first 2 games of this season as well. He scored a goal in his cameo in GW1 which most likely earned him a spot in the starting XI for GW2, where he managed to bag 9.5 fantasy points with no attacking returns. He may rotate a fair bit, as Brighton players tend to do that, but when he plays, Mac Allister should be in your starting XI.
Verdict: Mac Allister is worth a mid-range waiver claim or 8-12% of your FAB budget.
Next 5 Fixtures: LEE, eve, ARS, lei, NOR
Prospects: Not one to toot my own horn, but I did recommend the Austrian in my Burnley Sleepers article and he repaid the faith in his first start in GW2 against mighty Liverpool. He had a goal disallowed, but even without it, he scored an impressive 12.75 points, mostly helped out by his 3 KPs and 5 AERs. He will continue his tall-tall partnership with Chris Wood up top for Burnley and be one of those players, who can give you a great floor and pop up with a goal or assist every few games.
Verdict: I would use a mid-range waiver claim or 4-9% of my FAB budget on Barnes.
