Waiver Wire Gameweek 13

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 13 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!

Dara O'Shea (Ros 4%)

Prospects: The Irish CB had an afternoon to forget against Arsenal this past GW but we can't forget his erstwhile ghosting. Prior to the GW12, O'Shea was averaging double digit ghost points, offsetting Burnley's goals conceded with a smattering of clearances and aerials. With trustworthy defensive streamers few and far between, O'Shea can do a job and has a decent matchup against West Ham at home in which he'll have a lot to do. While a clean sheet is unlikely, he can still get you 7-9 (and even more with an attacking return/the luck of the Irish).

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

Pablo Sarabia (Ros 7%)

Prospects: The Spaniard has largely been the forgotten man in the brief but impactful reign of Gary O'Neill. Sarabia hasn't started a game in over two months and has barely even featured off the bench. When Pedro Neto went down, the manager needed to replace his creativity and set piece prowess, and Sarabia still rode the bench - that is until his cameo over the weekend against Spurs. The diminutive winger engaged in some late game heroics, scoring a wonder goal for the equalizer and then providing an assist for the winner at the death, surely making an indelible mark on his manager with this performance. Unfortunately we'll have to wait until the last game of the GW (the Monday matchup v Fulham) to see if this earns Sarabia a start. But he is a high upside punt this week with the hope that he gets the starting nod, takes over set pieces, and builds on this impressive cameo. Just make sure you have cover for him (a Wolves Defender like Ait Nouri is a decent alternative in a favorable matchup on paper).

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

Ryan Christie (Ros 22%)

Prospects: The struggling Cherries got a much needed win against Newcastle in GW12, likely saving Iraola's job - at least for a few more weeks. While Eddie Howe's Magpies were depleted, Bournemouth looked more organized and dangerous, passing the eye test in addition to nicking the three points. Ryan Christie played a central role in this impressive performance. He bagged a mouthwatering 15 ghost points and was unlucky to not pick up an attacking return. Now we've seen false dawns before with him - he delivered 13 points against Chelsea in mid-September and then failed to eclipse 7.5 up until this past GW. Bear that mind but you have to like Christie's chances against Sheffield United coming off that impressive showing against Newcastle.

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

Luis Sinisterra (Ros 5%)

Prospects: The Colombian has been maddening to roster this season (and last season as well, to be fair). He came over to Bournemouth late in the summer window, setting the collective draft hearts aflutter, and has failed to start one game since his arrival. Sinisterra has teased us with incredible cameos off the bench. He's scored 6+points in his last 4 appearanes despite not featuring over 32 minutes in any of them. This includes the past GW in which he dropped 8+ points in a mere 21 minutes. We all know what Sinisterra can do when he plays. His purple patches with Leeds United resulted in some hauls. But we need to find out if he's going to continue as a supersub or actually start nailing down a starting role in this Bournemouth XI. What better time than now, when Sheffield United are on the docket?

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

Ollie McBurnie (Ros 1%)

Prospects: The return of the towering Ollie McBurnie to the Premier League was cheered on by draft veterans who nostalgicly remember his aerial exploits. His ghost point ability is legendary. He hasn't been healthy or consistent enough this season to deliver much value. But in his few starts, he has shown he's still got it, averaging 8 ghost points per start and a persistent knack for winning aerials. McBurnie has missed the past few games due to a groin injury but he should be back after this International Break and will be looking to build on his goal against Man United in late October prior to picking up the knock. He's good value at home to Bournemouth.

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