Waiver Wire Gameweek 25

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 25 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!

Mark Flekken (Ros 32%)

Prospects: Although 2 gameweeks is very small sample size to judge a fantasy asset by, Flekken has emerged as the top scoring goalkeeper (45.75 FPTs) by registering 17 saves, 1 clean sheet, and 1 assist versus champions Manchester City and a revitalised Wolves squad. Despite this improvement, I would totally understand any Fantrax manager's hesitation in rostering the Brentford goalkeeper because the Dutch international currently sits 12th in terms of total FPts scored and is 20th for points per game for the season to date. However, if Flekken can maintain his improved 90% save rate during Gameweek 25, he could potentially score quite well versus two of the most attacking teams in the league, Liverpool & Manchester City, as they would provide the Bees GK with an ample amount of shots to save. A possible punt for any manager who is tired of their currently rostered goalkeeper.

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

Sergio Reguilon (Ros 32%)

Prospects: Although Brentford assets have a double gameweek fixture, the idea of facing both Liverpool and Manchester City seems a daunting task to score any FPts, especially as a DEF, which has been one of the most difficult positions to stream this season. However, if you think Brentford can score a few goals, Reguilon has shown great potential in continuing to contribute to that feat. Reguilon has now started back-to-back games for his new club Brentford and the left wing-back is currently averaging just over 11 ghost points per 90 during that time. It should also be noted that the Spanish defender took 3/13 corners in 78 minutes versus Manchester City and 1/4 corners in 90 minutes versus Wolves. A DEF with set pieces? Sign me up for the season Sergio!

Verdict: I would use a low-tier waiver pick or 3-4 FAB to get him.

Albert Sambi Lokonga (Ros 10%)

Prospects: Although Luton Town have been quite formidable at home this season, the Hatters had an unexpected loss versus relegation rivals Sheffield United during Gameweek 24 and will surely want to bounce back as quickly as possible to remain outside the relegation zone. Due to the double gameweek our Fixture Difficulty Tracker ranks Luton Town MIDs as having the 3rd best fixture of all midfielders. Even though Lokonga averages just under 5 ghost points per start, with a ceiling of just under 11 FPts per game, it helps that the on-loan-Gunner has a double gameweek fixture. Additionally, although Barkley and Doughty have been the star midfield fantasy attractions from Luton Town, Lokonga still has value as a MID-4/5 that could possibly score you around 10-12 FPts in Gameweek 25.

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

Harvey Elliot (Ros 11%)

Prospects: Liverpool MIDs have the 2nd best set of fixtures this gameweek and the Merseyside club is one of the few contenders that are chasing down Premier League glory. Therefore rostering any of the Liverpool attacking assets would be a great source of FPts for any Fantrax manager. The only issue is that most of the popular assets are already owned. However, if you have an appetite for a gamble, you could start Elliot during this double gameweek as there is no guarantee that the young English MID will start either fixture. Having said this, the fact that in his last 3 appearances, which were all as a substitute, Elliott scored 21 FPts in 96 minutes including 2 assists and prior to that, Elliott averaged 6.5 ghost points over 2 starts, lasting approximately 60 minutes each. A solid MID-4/5 for any manager willing to take a gamble.

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

Neal Maupay (Ros 34%)

Prospects: Over the last 4 gameweeks, Maupay has been averaging exactly 10 points per game, despite receving 2 yellow cards. During this period, the French forward scored 3 goals in 3 consecutive games and registered the 2nd most shots (8) for Brentford, while managing to score 7 ghost points in the game that he blanked. It is probably no surprise that Maupay has recently improved his scoring as a fantasy asset as this period also coincided with Toney's reintroduction to the Bees starting XI. Although there is always a risk that the Brentford striker could get a random booking, given his knack of being involved in contentious moments, the Bees will need to score goals and get results even against the bigger clubs like Liverpool and Manchester City to avoid an unwanted relegation scrap. Therefore, Maupay could be the perfect FWD3 for a manager looking to punt on a double gameweek asset.

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