Waiver Wire Gameweek 11

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 11 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!



Max Kilman (Ros 16%)

Prospects: Wolves’s opponents in GW11, Sheffield United, have scored the fewest goals (7) in season so far. In fact, since GW6, the Blades have only scored 2 goals: an own goal and a penalty. So it only makes sense to punt on a defender from the team facing them. The top scoring Wolves DEF and captain, Max Kilman, is one of your best bets. Kilman leads the Wolves DEFs in key passes (5), interceptions (13), clearances (47) and aerials (24). Although Max averages 4.92 PPG for the season, the average of his last 3 games was 6.17 PPG, without any cleansheets and after conceding 4 goals. This equates to 9.5 ghost points per game. Pretty tasty potential for points versus the dull Blades.


Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 0-1 FAB to get him.


Krisoffer Ajer (Ros 0%)

Prospects: The Bees are absolutely buzzing after their 0-2 away win over London rivals, Chelsea FC. This result should come as no surprise as Brentford’s record in London derbies currently stands at an unbeaten 13 game streak and up next they face another local rival in West Ham United. After Brentford lost a key member of their backline, Rico Henry, the Bees’ form seemed to dip but Thomas Frank has steadied the ship again and that is partly through the reintroduction of Ajer. Kristoffer has now started Brentford’s last 4 games in a row and his presence allows Brentford to switch between a back-3 and back-4 system with ease. The Norwegian’s last 2 games have shown his ghost point potential having registered 20.25 gFPts, excluding the 2 clean sheets that he earned. We all know Pinnock is the main man in the Bees defence but Ajer was the only DEF to record any key passes (3) in their last 2 games. He also sits tied first for key passes (5) for all the Brentford DEFs. The Hammers are currently in a poor patch of form, having lost their last 3 games while only scoring 2 goals so there’s a good chance of another good performance from Ajer.


Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 0-1 FAB to get him.


Neal Maupay (Ros 3%)

Prospects: One of the biggest trolls of the Premier League is back at his old club Brentford. In Maupay’s last 2 games, he has registered back-to-back assists. One could say he was unlucky to have not scored in either of the fixtures as well, after his goal versus Burnley was ruled out by VAR and Brentford's last minute counter attack towards an open goal, versus Chelsea, was finished by Mbeumo instead. Maupay’s starts may depend on the system that the Bees’ use as he is more likely to be rolled out when they play a back-4, which is typically used versus easier opposition. Neal also has a decent record versus West Ham United, having scored 3 goals in 5 appearances against them. In his start versus Burnley, Maupay attempted 4 shots (2 shots on target) which was the second highest in GW9, after Mbeumo (6). If you’re struggling for a FWD, you can gamble on Maupay starting as the fixture is early enough into GW11.


Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 0-1 FAB to get him.


Sasa Kalajdzic (Ros 0%)

Prospects: After a horrific injury that ruled out Sasa from the 2022/23 season, the 6’7” Austrian has an opportunity to get his first league start of the 2023/24 campaign. In Wolves’ last fixture versus Newcastle, they unfortunately lost their talisman Pedro Neto to a hamstring injury, which could keep the Portugese out for quite a few gameweeks. This could provide an opportunity for Sasa to get a run of games. Kalajdzic has only started in the Carabao cup for Wolves and registered 2 attacking returns (1 goal & 1 assist) to his name. However, in the league, he has only made substitute appearances but is somehow currently tied for the 2nd most goals (2) with Cunha. In GW11, Wolves face bottom of the league Sheffield United and they have conceded the most goals (29) for the season. The Blades have also not dealt well with aerial situations, having lost the second most aerial duels (181) in the league so far. Sasa could soar.


Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 1-2 FAB to get him.



Andros Townsend (Ros 36%)

Prospects: Townsend is back in the Premier League after signing with Luton Town. The English midfielder has yet to start his first game for his new club but has shown great signs of being a prolific points scorer. In his 2 substitute appearances, Townsend accumulated 14 FPts in 49 minutes. This included 2 key passes, 1 assist, 2 tackles won and 2 ACNCs (accurate crosses not corners). The home fixture versus Liverpool is not the easiest, but Townsend could be a MID3 if he gets a run of games as Luton Town need to start winning points again after dropping back into the bottom 3 of the Premier League table.


Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 0-1 FAB to get him.
