Gameweek 36 Waiver Wire

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax


Teams with double gameweeks in GW36:

ARS: LEE, tot

AVL: bur, LIV

CHE: WOL, lee

EVE: lei, wat

LEE: ars, CHE

LEI: EVE, NOR

LIV: TOT, avl

MCI: NEW, wol

NOR: WHU, lei

TOT: liv, ARS

WAT: cry, EVE

WOL: che, MCI


Yerry Mina

Position: Defender

Team: Everton

Rostered: 5%

Next Fixture: LEI (A), WAT (A)

Prospects: First of 4 relegation-threatened players looking to try to claw their ways out of trouble through relatively easy fixtures. After their "comprehensive" win over their boss's former team, Everton look to put together some momentum to mount a push to avoid relegation. The Colombian CB has returned from injury to help with that. Some were skeptical about him lasting even a half after his injury (yours truly) but he has played the full 90 in both of the last 2 games, and it looks like he is well and truly back. In a defence lacking ghosts, Mina is probably the best non-CS option.

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


Alex Iwobi

Position: Midfielder

Team: Everton

Rostered: 18%

Next Fixture: LEI (A), WAT (A)

Prospects: I suggested Iwobi last week as a punt and he delivered a 7.5-point performance to match. He has been one of the few bright spots in Lampard's struggle to put together anything decent at Everton. He is direct, strong, and pops up in dangerous areas. If you want to continue on the punt train, Iwobi is accepting passengers, we might even get an attacking return, considering the defensively-weak opponents. Watford are the best matchup for Fantrax mids to play against and Leicester are the 6th best.

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

Kalvin Phillips

Position: Midfielder

Team: Liverpool

Rostered: 34%

Next Fixture: ARS (A), CHE (H)

Prospects: Another player who returned from a long injury layoff to solidify his spot in the Leeds midfield. It is safe to say, Leeds have been missing their midfield metronome all season and everyone at Elland Road is elated that he is finally back and healthy. He is one of the low scoring, high-floor, low-ceiling guys you only hear us mention in double gameweeks. It is two tough games in GW36, but they could be staring down the abyss that is the Championship if they don't get anything from these two.

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


Daniel James

Position: Midfielder

Team: Leeds

Rostered: 36%

Next Fixture: ARS (A), CHE (H)

Prospects: To finish out the article, I wanted to highlight a type of player that you should really be looking at if you are chasing a game, or you are in a bind this late in the season. It has clearly been established that James has a non-existent fantasy floor and only scores well if he gets an attacking return. At this point in the season, both IRL and in fantasy, it is time to stand up and be counted. These upcoming weeks will determine life long fantasy love affairs and forever Do Not Drafts as our fantasy teams are nearing the all-important deciders. Give James a chance to make you fall head over heels for him when he gets you 25+ in this double, or forever exile him from your teams.

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