Essential reading before the Tuesday waiver requests process!

Gameweek 5 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!

Brandon Williams

Position: Defender

Team: Norwich

Ownership: 4%

Next 3 Fixtures: WAT, eve, bur

Prospects: The United loanee put up a decent score against fellow strugglers Arsenal and almost reached 10 ghost points based off his 4 tackles and 3 clearances. With Norwich's fixtures easing up, Williams might be a good plug-in option if you are desperately short on defenders. Watford at home this weekend is a must-win game for the Canaries.

Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or 0-2% of my FAB on Williams.

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Position: Midfielder

Team: Chelsea

Ownership: 29%

Next 3 Fixtures: tot, MCI, sou

Prospects: Is Tuchel worse than Pep when it comes to rotation? Possibly. Do you need to start whichever player he chooses any given week? You betcha. CHO came in for the suspended James at RWB and did a great job even getting a sniff at set-pieces in Mount's absence. 7 points without a return is a decent score and I would gladly start him in any of the upcoming fixtures if he is given the chance. That said, he might go back to riding the pine for the foreseeable future.

Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or 2-5% of my FAB on Hudson-Odoi.

Hwang Hee-Chan

Position: Forward

Team: Wolves

Ownership: 10%

Next 3 Fixtures: BRF, sou, NEW

Prospects: The former Leipzig man was touted by our very own Wolves correspondent Ryan as the one who brings balance to the force, meaning it lets Lage revert back to his supposedly preferred 442 system. Hwang only started as a sub in GW4, but bagged Wolves' first goal (scored by one of their own players) of the season. With the floodgates open, we might be looking at a few lopsided scores in the upcoming Wolves schedule, and Hwang could very well get in on the act.

Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or 0-2% of my FAB on Hwang.

Christos Tzolis

Position: Forward

Team: Norwich

Ownership: 4%

Next 5 Fixtures: WAT, eve, bur

Prospects: Unplanned though it might have been, this article has a distinct Norwich feel to it, in honour of @ThFFChaps of course. Tzolis is an exciting young talent who has already shown flashes of what he can do in green and yellow and if he is given the opportunity to flourish in the starting lineup, he should be started in fantasy as well. A decent floor (as usual for all-action wingers) and the opportunity for attacking returns makes him an interesting add for those few teams who are in need of a forward this season.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 5-7% of my FAB on Tzolis.
