Waiver Wire Gameweek 15

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 15 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!




Martin Dubravka (Ros 1%)

Prospects: Nick Pope suffered a dislocated shoulder in the GW14 fixture vs Manchester United and has now been ruled out for 4-5 months. Enter Dubravka. Pope is currently the 3rd best scoring GK in the game, which bodes well for Dubravka. What also works in Dubravka’s favour is the fact that despite the plethora of injuries that Eddie Howe and Newcastle have had to deal with, the Magpies have still managed to register the most clean sheets (6) for the season while Pope was only ranked 13th for saves (40). This indicates that the Newcastle defence isn’t solely reliant upon their goalkeeper. It should also be noted that our Fixture Difficulty Tracker has Newcastle GKs as the best option in GW15 for the position. Dubravka is definitely worth a grab for this gameweek and possibly for the rest of the season.


Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver pick or 4-5 FAB to get him.


Felipe (Ros 17%)

Prospects: As quickly as Willy Boly was back in our starting line-ups, he was quickly out again at half-time during GW14. Unfortunately, the Ivory Coast international was subbed off due to an injury, which led to the long-awaited introduction of last season’s ghost point legend, Felipe. During the 2022/23 season, Felipe was one of the best ghost point scorers around (10.7 GPPS). Despite only keeping 1 clean sheet in 16 games during the 22/23 season, the Brazilian DEF still managed to average 7-8 points per game. Even during his limited 45-minute appearance during GW14, Felipe managed to score 2.75 FPts despite conceding a goal and receiving a yellow card. Grab him while you can!


Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 2-3 FAB to get him.


Chris Wood (Ros 21%)

Prospects: Wood is back from injury and leading the line for Nottingham Forest again, after Awoniyi was ruled out for a lengthy spell due to an injury that required surgery. Given that Origi has yet to start a game for Nottingham Forest this season, Wood should be a nailed option for the foreseeable future. There is also a slight chance that he could share penalties with Morgan Gibbs-White, which further boosts his scoring potential. Furthermore, Wood has recently shown better ghost point output in his last couple of cameos, having scored 12.5 ghost points over 152 minutes, which equates to 7-8 ghost points per 90. These are decent FWD3 numbers.


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


Ehor Yarmolyuk (Ros 4%)

Prospects: Yarmolyuk was tipped to be one for the future, especially as a Dynasty league asset, but now the Ukranian international has broken into the the starting XI for Brentford and may have nailed his spot. It helps Yarmolyuk's case for minutes and starts that the Bees have lost vital attacking back-up players, such as Schade, as well as the impending AFCON departures for Mbeumo & Wissa. Yarmolyuk has now started back to back games in the league and has scored over 10 ghost points per 90 over his last 3 appearances. It should also be noted that Brighton have yet to keep a clean sheet this season, which bodes well for any opposing attacker.


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


Zeki Amdouni (Ros 15%)

Prospects: In GW14, we witnessed Burnley thrash their relegation rivals, Sheffield United, 5-0 while Amdouni scored his highest fantasy points tally of the season: 25.5. Amdouni is currently the 2nd highest FPts scorer for Burnley, ranks 1st in shots attempted (23), and is top for shots on target (11) of all Claret outfielders. Burnley will hope to kick on from their massive win and aim to get another positive result versus Wolves. Given how much of the Clarets’ attack goes through Amdouni, there’s a good chance that the Swiss FWD can register an attacking return. It also helps Burnley that Wolves could be missing their starting GK, Jose Sa.


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