Gameweek 9 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: sou (A), BRF (H), che (A)
Prospects: A double-digit score for a defender against Man City is truly a sight to behold. It does not come around often, but it is just what Burnley's stand-in centre back, Nathan Collins achieved. Deputising for captain Mee, he has had two stellar performances in a row and could add a third against Southampton if Mee is still in quarantine.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or about 0-3% of my FAB on Collins.
Albert Sambi Lokonga
Next 3 Fixtures: AVL (H), lei (A), WAT (H)
Prospects: It seems like we have been mentioning his name at every chance we get. Since Xhaka's injury, Sambi has been starting and playing well for the Gunners and it should continue for the upcoming gameweeks. He doesn't boast a lot of upside, but if you are looking for a steady midfielder to plug in, you can do much worse than Lokonga in the long run.
Early team news suggests that Lokonga may be on the bench for the game against Crystal Palace. That said, Arsenal play on Friday in GW9, so would be an easy drop if he is not in the XI.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or about 0-3% of my FAB on Lokonga.
Next 3 Fixtures: eve (A), SOU (H), ars (A)
Prospects: The new captain of the Hornets put in a shift in the 5-0 mauling by Liverpool. As a matter of fact, he was the only player with a double digit score for Watford. With a few relatively easy games coming up, the new manager bump could benefit the former Spurs and Newcastle man to put together a string of good performances.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver claim or about 2-5% of my FAB on Sissoko.
Next 5 Fixtures: sou (A), BRF (H), che (A)
Prospects: The former Lyon man is a personal favourite of mine, and not just because of my unexplainable Burnley love; he is truly an exciting talent. Were it not for his "Forward" categorisation, I am sure he would have already surpassed the measly 40% needed to be included in this article. Burnley have passed their customary early-season-struggle phase and are hopefully entering the surprise-wins-and-string-of-clean-sheets phase of their season. If you need a FWD3-4, he is the perfect solution for your team. If roster construction allows, I would start him ahead of the players mentioned in this article at least.
Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or about 3-7% of my FAB on Cornet.
