Waiver Wire Gameweek 27

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 27 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!

Antoine Semenyo (Ros 30%)

Prospects: In the last 6 matches, Burnley have conceded 17 goals, tied with bottom-of-the-league Sheffield United for most conceded. Therefore it's no surprise that our Fixture Difficulty Tracker has Bournemouth FWDs rated as the best fixture for forwards in Gameweek 27. However, one of the biggest issues with rostering and starting Semenyo has always been his regular and unpredictable substitutions during matches. That being said, in his limited starts, he still generates a better ghost-point-per-90 rate (8.3) than his teammate Solanke. So given the fact that he finally played his first 90 minute game versus Manchester City in Gameweek 26 and scored 10 ghost points, he's a must-consider versus the Clarets, especially with a double gameweek on the horizon.

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

Ben Davies (Ros 11%)

Prospects: According to our Fixture Difficulty Tracker, Tottenham defenders have the 2nd best rated fixture in Gameweek 27. Spurs host a rejuvenated Crystal Palace team, under the new management of Oliver Glasner and surely beaming with confidence after a 3-0 win versus Burnley. Although there is a chance that Davies and co. might not keep a clean sheet versus the Eagles, Fantrax managers should still be confident in the Welsh defender's ability to score FPts for them. Davies has the 2nd best ghost-points-per-start rate (7.9), only behind Porro (9.9). First string LB, Destiny Udogie, is rumored to be back in contention, so be way of that (you can pivot to his counterpart at RB, Emerson Royal, if need be). And if Udogie's injury layoff is longer than expected, Davies is potentially a DEF-2/3 to roster, especially off the back of a 10.25 ghost point loss versus Wolves.

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

Harvey Elliott (Ros 19%)

Prospects: Liverpool are absolutely ravaged with injuries after losing yet another two midfielders (Endo and Gravenberch) during their victory over Chelsea in the Carabao cup final. So there should be no surprise if Elliott starts the next few games for Liverpool in either a midfield or forward spot. This is how shorthanded they are! Although Elliott has had a very mixed bag of a season with only 4 starts, the young Englishman still has 6 attacking returns, having notched half of them during his last 3 appearances. Elliott's last cameo versus Luton in Gameweek 25 resulted in 33.5 FPts, which included 1 goal and 8 key passes. So considering the fact that Liverpool have scored the most goals for the season (63), there's a good chance Elliott could have some form of goal contribution in a much needed win against a Nottingham Forest team that just conceded 4 goals versus Aston Villa. This waiver pick could change the course of your season!

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

Milos Kerkez (Ros 13%)

Prospects: The Cherries will be keen to get back to winning ways after having recorded 3 draws and 3 losses in their last 6 games. Only 2 other teams are winless in their last 6 matches, Everton and Burnley, the latter hosting Bournemouth in Gameweek 27. It should also be noted Burnley have only scored 5 goals in their last 6 matches, only bettering Everton (4 goals). Hence there is a good chance of a shutout by Bournemouth, especially considering the last 2 clubs that faced Burnley also kept clean sheets. Gameweek 26 saw Kerkez pick up his 1st start since December 9th (GW16) where the Hungarian actually kept a clean sheet! Managers should note that the Bournemouth defender scored 9.25 ghost points versus Champions Manchester City, which included a KP and 3 shots (1 on target), and attacking returns are also a possibility.

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

Daniel Munoz (Ros 23%)

Prospects: Since Munoz's 1st start in Gameweek 23, the Colombian DEF has been averaging just under 10 ghost points per game. Glasner enjoyed his first game as the Crystal Palace manager by deploying a 3-4-3 formation where Munoz was utilized as their right wingback. During the game versus Burnley, who admittedly were down a man for most of the match, no defender had more final 3rd touches in the box and he did so while registering 2 shots. Munoz's creativity has shone through in his first few appearances as the defender has notched at least 1 key pass per start, 6 in total over his 4 games. Munoz could be the answer to our troubles as a reliable DEF-3, particularly in a season where clean sheets are hard to come by.

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