Waiver Wire Gameweek 33

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 33 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!

Oliver McBurnie (Ros 22%)

Prospects: In the past 6 matches, Brentford have been the 2nd worst team in the league (4D-2L, 8 goals scored, 10 goals conceded). Only one team has been worse than them and that is Sheffield United. That being said, Sheffield United have also scored 8 goals in that time, which is why McBurnie comes to mind, especially on the eve of a double gameweek. McBurnie has had a rollercoaster of a season in terms of reliability of starts and minutes. However, in the Blades last 4 matches, McBurnie started 3 games and has averaged 11-12 ghost points per start, including 2 goals and 1 assist. It also helps that the FWD typically takes penalties!

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

Lewis Hall (Ros 34%)

Prospects: Newcastle have been absolutely ravaged with injuries this season, even to one of their talismen, Kieran Trippier. This meant that Eddie Howe has had to rely on the depth of his squad, which benefits us Fantrax managers, especially when it comes to Lewis Hall. For the first time this season, Hall has started back-to-back games after his only other start was way back in November, where he only played 45 minutes but scored 10 ghost points. In his last 2 matches, he scored a total of 28 FPts, including 2 clean sheets, which means that the on-loan Chelsea DEF is still averaging 8 ghost points per start. This rate of fantasy point production should still be enough cover as the Magpies come up against a Champions League chasing Spurs team in GW33 that has only failed to score once this season. There's always a chance Hall could get an attacking return as well!

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

Ashley Young (Ros 13%)

Prospects: Everton have been hit with another points deduction and now find themselves in 16th place, only 2 points above the drop zone. After a 13 game winless streak, the Toffees managed to finally earn 3 points again last weekend, with their last win before that actually coming against Burnley. Everton face Chelsea in Gameweek 33, a team they beat 2-0 earlier in the season and so they will hope to do the double over the Blues and build some form of momentum going into the final stretch of the season as they attempt to avoid relegation. Although we don't expect Everton to keep a clean sheet, Young was deployed as a right-sided midfielder in Everton's last 2 matches. In fact, Young has played out-of-position 7 times this season and Everton have only lost once, versus the Champions Manchester City. In the 6 games that Everton did not lose, Young averaged 10-11 ghost points per start which makes him a solid DEF-3 option for any roster.

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

Oliver Arblaster (Ros 0%)

Prospects: Sheffield United are not typically a team that you would target for reliable Fantrax assets but there has been a new face in their starting XI for their last 4 matches. Arblaster is playing in the heart of the Sheffield United midfield and has been putting up steady-eddy performances, with his best one coming against Chelsea in Gameweek 32. He scored 13 ghost points, which included 5 key passes and a yellow card. Typically we would expect 5-6 FPts from the young English MID, which makes him an enticing MID-5 option especially during a double gameweek. However, you might want to gamble on grabbing Arblaster a gameweek early as the Blades face a Brentford team that have conceded the 4th most goals this season (58), with only 1 clean sheet in their last 9 games.

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

Sergio Reguilon (Ros 34%)

Prospects: After a shocking Gameweek 29 performance where Reguilon was sent off, the Spanish DEF was reinstated into the Bees starting XI and had an immediate impact for Fantrax managers, registering 2 more attacking returns and taking his tally to 5 assists in 8 starts. Although Brentford have been atrocious in their last 10 matches (19 goals conceded), according to our Fixture Difficulty Tracker, they have the best fixture for all defenders in Gameweek 33 as they face bottom-of-the-league Sheffield United. Even if the Blades manage to score a goal or two, Reguilon has been consistently scoring enough ghost points to warrant a start against any opposition. In fact, in his 8 starts for the West London outfit, Reguilon has been averaging 8-9 ghost points per start! A must-roster in any league.

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