Waiver Wire Gameweek 21
Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 21 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!
Gonzalo Montiel (Ros 2%)
Prospects: Neco Williams' owners must be scratching their heads at the moment. The Welsh DEF recently dropped 13.75 FPTs and 18 FPts hauls without any clean sheets. Neco was looking like a new Nottingham Forest fantasy gem. However, Nuno seems to be favouring World Cup winning Gonzalo Montiel at the moment. In Montiel's last 2 starts, he scored 5 FPts (9 ghosts) and 16 FPts (4 ghosts), with the latter supported by the Argentine's 1st assist and clean sheet. Although the early substitutions are a concern, playing enough minutes to chance a clean sheet is always a bonus. A possible solid DEF 3/4 for this gameweek in a matchup vs. Brentford and possibly longer.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 1-2 FAB to get him.
Alex Scott (Ros 10%)
Prospects: Alex Scott is back with a bang! In Gameweek 19, Scott had his 1st start since his injury and scored 15.5 FPts which included an assist. In Gameweek 20, he came off the bench and scored a goal against Spurs while registering 17.5 FPts. It should also be mentioned that he scored a second goal versus Spurs but unfortunately it was ruled offside. This means Scott amassed 33 FPts in 110 minutes, which equates to just under 15 ghost-points-per-90-minutes. This impressive ghost point production rate comes as no surprise as Scott managed to also register a "full-house" across the 110 minute period, meaning he scored in every default category possible. Great Scott!
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 1-2 FAB to get him, but if you are keen on rostering him you may need to spend closer to 5-8 FAB.
Lyle Foster (Ros 26%)
Prospects: Foster took some much needed time away from the game as he was struggling with mental health issues. Lyle is now fully fit and started the last 3 games for the Clarets. After being excluded from the South African national team for the upcoming AFCON tournament, we'd expect Foster to continue plying his trade in the Premier League as Burnley could greatly benefit from his goal contributions. In Burnley's last 3 games, Foster averaged 11.5 points-per-start, while scoring 1 goal and 1 assist in that period. In fact, he only played 90 minutes in the Gameweek 20, which makes his scoring rate even more impressive, especially after being out-of-action for 7 gameweeks. Burnley host relegation rivals Luton Town in Gameweek 21 and our Fixture Difficulty Tracker has Burnley FWDs rated as the best option in that position. Roster Foster.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 3-4 FAB to get him.
Luis Sinisterra (Ros 13%)
Prospects: Bournemouth will be without Semenyo and Ouattara due to AFCON duties, which should provide the opportunity of playing time for the Colombian FWD. We're all well aware of Sinisterra's potential after his time with Leeds during the 2022-23 season, where he scored 5 goals. Sinisterra already has 2 goals this season and is currently averaging just under 7 points-per-game, after only 2 starts so far. In those two starts, he scored 13 FPts (1 assist) and 11 FPts (all ghosts), with the latter during Gameweek 20. If Luis takes advantage of his opportunity to play more minutes, he could be a very tidy FWD 2/3 to roster during January. Don't sleep on Sinisterra.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 3-5 FAB to get him.
Noni Madueke (Ros 40%)
Prospects: In Gameweek 19, Madueke came off the bench to score the decisive penalty goal versus Crystal Palace which gave Chelsea a much needed victory. After receiving high praise from Pochettino, Madueke was rewarded with only his 2nd start of the season in Gameweek 20, ahead of senior players like Raheem Sterling. Last gameweek, Noni handsomely rewarded managers with a 24.5 FPts haul, which included 1 goal, 3 key passes, 3 tackles won and 4 successful dribbles. Madueke was one of the players we suggested to keep an eye on during our preseason prep in our Chelsea article as he showed signs of being an absolute ghost machine. Now with Nico Jackson off to AFCON to represent Senegal, this could be the opportunity for Madueke to stake a claim for a consistent spot in the Chelsea starting XI.
Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 1-2 FAB to get him, but if you are keen on adding him to your roster you may need to spend closer to 5-7 FAB.
