Waiver Wire Gameweek 34

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 34 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!


Dean Henderson (Ros 10%)

Prospects: In August 2023, Henderson joined Crystal Palace on a permanent deal and was naturally assumed to be the main goalkeeper for the 23/24 campaign. However, the English GK was injured to start the season and didn't make his first appearance until mid-December. Henderson had some mixed form until getting injured again in February 2024, when Johnstone then took over. However, now that the latter is ruled out for the rest of the season, Henderson has regained his starting spot and has been averaging just under 9 points-per-game (9.9 ghost-points-per-game), including the unexpected clean sheet versus Liverpool at Anfield. Given the fact that the Eagles have a double gameweek, Henderson could be a great swap for any manager looking to take a punt.


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


Marcos Senesi (Ros 22%)

Prospects: After missing the last few gameweeks due to injury, Senesi was back in the Cherries lineup to face Manchester United and the Argentine defender did not disappoint. Senesi managed to score 11.75 ghost points, along with 2 assists. Although Bournemouth have two tough away fixtures in their double gameweek, Senesi still boasts the 2nd highest ghost-points-per-90 (8.3) of all Bournemouth DEFs as well as the highest ceiling (16.6). Senesi already has 7 attacking returns for the season (3 goals & 4 assists) and should be a nailed 90-minute option for the upcoming gameweek, which makes him an easy candidate as a starting DEF in any roster.


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


Tyrick Mitchell (Ros 35%)

Prospects: In Gameweek 33, we saw a very unexpected win and clean sheet for the Eagles versus title contenders Liverpool, at Anfield. In fact, Mitchell was the 2nd highest scoring asset for the London outfit, only behind Eze, after registering his 4th attacking return for the season. Under Glasner, Mitchell has been deployed as a left-wingback in every single game, whereas under Hodgson, the English DEF was mainly at leftback. Under Hodgson, Mitchell was averaging 3.8 PPG (5.3 gPPG) whereas under Glasner, Mitchell has been averaging 6.5 PPG (6.9 gPPG). There has clearly been an improvement in Mitchell's output and given the double gameweek fixture, Mitchell is an easy choice as a DEF-3/4 for any roster given his ability to return on either side of the pitch.


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


Adam Wharton (Ros 19%)

Prospects: According to our Fixture Difficulty Tracker, Crystal Palace MIDs have the 2nd best fixture of all midfielders in Gameweek 34. The Eagles are 1 of 7 teams that have a double gameweek fixture, and 1 of 3 teams with both games being at home. Wharton could be a safe pick as he has finally played 90 minutes in back-to-back matches for the first time under Glasner against two teams vying for Premiership glory. He managed to score 5 ghosts points versus Man City and 6.5 ghost points versus Liverpool, where he even managed an attacking return versus the Champions. We expect the young English MID to score at least 10-12 points in the coming gameweek which makes him a viable MID-5 for managers.


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


Ben Brereton (Ros 22%)

Prospects: Sheffield United are not confirmed to have been relegated from the league yet, so the Blades continue to battle it out at the bottom of the table. That being said, our Fixture Difficulty Tracker actually has Sheffield United FWDs as the 2nd best option for all forward assets in Gameweek 34. Not only do they have a double gameweek, but one of their fixtures is against their relegation rivals Burnley. The best option is probably McBurnie, but on the chance that he is no longer available in your league, Brereton Diaz is a fantastic alternative. He currently has the 2nd best gPP90 (5.8) of all Sheffield United FWDs and has the highest ceiling (20.6). Ben also has the best goals-per-game ratio of all Sheffield United players this season and if he is able to keep his spot in the team, he is easily a FWD-3 in the coming gameweek.


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