Gameweek 7 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!
Next 3 Fixtures: ARS, nor, MCI
Prospects: It is not every day that a legend gets an epithet: Big Dan Burn joins the illustrious club, of Alexander the Great, Odysseus the Cunning and the lesser-known, yet similarly impressive Constantine VII Porphyrogennetos. Big Dan Burn is a legend in his own right. The 6ft7 man-mountain was Brighton's top Fantrax scorer 2 seasons ago and now he is back from injury and has slotted right (on the left) back into Potter's backline. Excluding the Man City game 3 GWs from now, I would be ok starting him in most matchups. Look out for how he shares aerials with Duffy.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or 0-3% of my FAB on Burn.
Next 3 Fixtures: whu, CHE, LEI
Prospects: Janelt is one of those players, who, if you were only shown his fantasy stat line, you would guess he was a top-class asset. Yet, he is only 17% rostered. The Brentford midfielder has been filling out the stat sheet with tackles, shots, crosses, interceptions, the whole nine yards. It is not always that you can get a double digit score from a free agent pickup every second game. A goal against Liverpool will make him a bit less under the radar, but you will be still be able to get him for relatively cheap. Oh and he had a set-piece monopoly against Liverpool.
Verdict: I would use a mid-range waiver claim or 3-8% of my FAB on Janelt.
Next 3 Fixtures: wol, TOT, cry
Prospects: "Not great, not terrible" The fateful words uttered by comrade Dyatlov after reading the Geiger counter perfectly sum up the once eagerly awaited, now unfortunately drab Almirón. Constantly hovering around that elusive double-digit return, it has not yet come this season, but this weekend facing Wolves might be the week for Almirón to break his duck. The 2 fixtures after that aren't that bad either so he should definitely be rostered and I would not have any qualms trotting him out against all of Newcastle's next 3 opponents.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or 0-3% of my FAB on Almirón.
Next 5 Fixtures: lee, LIV, eve
Prospects: From a current Geordie to a former Geordie. We have almost forgotten how good Sissoko was when playing for Newcastle before that horrible stint at Spurs. Free at last at Watford, he put up 11.5 tasty ghosties against his former employers. Facing a fully Sophomore Slumping Leeds might just be the invite he needs to build on last week's performance.
Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-3% of my FAB on Sissoko.
