Waiver Wire Gameweek 36

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 36 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!

Arijanet Muric (Ros 15%)

Prospects: Since Muric's first start back in mid March, the Swiss international has been the top scoring goalkeeper (96.25 FPts, 13.75 PPG). What is even more impressive about Muric's output across his 7 starts, is the fact that he kept 0 clean sheets. There has been a definite improvement to Burnley's performance in the league in recent gameweeks as the Clarets have only lost once in their last 8 games. Burnley have also been conceding fewer goals per game since Muric has been introduced into the starting XI, dropping from 2.21 to 1.14 goals conceded per game. Furthermore, Muric also holds the 2nd highest save percentage (Sv% 85.2) for the season, only bettered by Mark Travers, (Sv% 100) who has only played twice this season. Muric almost seems fixture proof at this point, so managers should definitely consider the swap for the final three gameweeks of the season.

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

Ola Aina (Ros 2%)

Prospects: According to our Fixture Difficulty Tracker, Nottingham Forest DEFs have the 2nd best fixture in Gameweek 36, as they visit Bramall Lane to take on already-relegated Sheffield United. Nottingham Forest should be able to get a positive result against the Yorkshire outfit as the latter have the worst home record in the league over the last 8 home games (30 goals conceded). So there might be an opportunity for Aina to nick an attacking return. However, this fixture could be a tricky one, as the Blades are now playing with nothing to lose, having scored 10 goals in their last 4 games. That being said, Aina's ghost point production over his last 4 games at 10+ ghost points per start, should be good enough to warrant a start as a DEF-3 in most rosters.

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

Wilson Odobert (Ros 23%)

Prospects: Burnley are currently on 24 points, Luton Town on 25 points and Nottingham Forest on 26 points. There is a genuine possibility that any of these 3 teams can avoid relegation, especially if Forest have a possible points deduction coming. Therefore, you'd expect Burnley to try and win as many points as possible for the remaining gameweeks, which should mean goals, assists and fantasy points for their forward players. The Clarets host the Champions League-chasing Magpies in Gameweek 36 and should be buoyed by the stark contrast in Newcastle's home and away form in recent games. In Newcastle's last 4 home games, they have won 3, drawn 1, scored 14 and conceded 5. However, their last 4 away games have included 1 win, 3 losses, 4 goals scored and 9 conceded. It also helps that our toolkit places Burnley FWDs as having the best rated fixture for all forwards this gameweek. So if you're betting on Burnley to score, grab Odobert. There's a good chance Odobert could reward managers as he's got the 2nd highest % of Starts (76), including the best gPPS (6.3) and 2nd lowest GACS% reliance (26) of all Burnley FWDs. An easy choice for your FWD-3 slot.

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

Morgan Rogers (Ros 10%)

Prospects: There's only 1 Champions League spot remaining for the English teams to claim, after Liverpool confirmed the 3rd spot (alongside Arsenal and Man City) due to Spurs' 2-0 loss to Chelsea at the end of Gameweek 35. The Villains will have to continue to win points in the league if they want European football next season, especially after their 2-4 loss to Olympiacos in the first leg of their semi-final tie in the Europa Conference League. Fortunately, Aston Villa are visiting Brighton in Gameweek 36, a team that has seemed to have downed tools as the season is closing. The Seagulls are on shocking form, having been the 19th worst team in the league over the last 4 games (1 draw, 3 losses, 1 goal for, 11 goals against). So risk averse managers should consider Rogers as a possible punt, as the English FWD now has 3 goals in his last 4 games, despite his lack of ghost points with just4.7 ghost Points Per Start.

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

Valentino Livramento (Ros 9%)

Prospects: Trippier owners must be quite frustrated at this point of the season, as their Round-1/2 pick has missed the last 7 gameweeks due to injury. Although Trippier could be back for the last couple of games this season, managers might as well be cautious and handcuff that Newcastle spot with Livramento, especially with a double gameweek around the corner. Although Livramento has not had consistent starts or playing time this season, his last game versus Sheffield United showed great ghost point production (10.75 ghost points), including 3 key passes and 1 ACNC. It should also be noted that Livramento also has the 2nd lowest GACS% (36) amongst all Newcastle DEFs, so even if Burnley were to score a goal, there's a good chance Livramento scores enough FPts to warrant a start as a DEF-3 in your roster.

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