Waiver Wire Gameweek 6

Here we outline our Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire Gameweek 6 targets that have 40% rostered or below on Fantrax. These players should perform well over the upcoming period!



Ryan Christie (Ros 14%)

Prospects: The Cherries are spoilt for talent in midfield, with a plethora of new signings and proven assets at their disposal. One thing is for sure about their attack: Dominic Solanke and Philip Billing, both FWD and MID with 5/5 starts each. However, Ryan Christie has flown under the radar and is only 14% rostered across all leagues. Of all the Cherries, Christie is tied 2nd for KPs (6), tied 1st for ACNCs (4) and leads the way in CoS (7). The Scot is currently Bournemouth's 3rd best scoring asset (39 FPts) and has yet to register an attacking return for the season. Ghosts galore!


Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver pick or 4-6 FAB to get him.


Callum Hudson-Odoi (Ros 20%)

Prospects: The ex-Chelsea FWD is back in the Premier League after an underwhelming 22/23 season in the Bundesliga for Leverkusen, only scoring 1 goal in 21 appearances. Now Hudson-Odoi is reunited with his former U17 World Cup winning boss, Steve Cooper, and has already hit the ground running. In his first appearance for Nottingham Forest, Callum registered 3 KPs, 2 SoT, 1 TkW, 2 CoS and 1 Goal. Not bad for 70 minutes. CHO's most productive season in the Premier League was during the 21/22 season where he averaged 8.1 FP/G but only registered 3 attacking returns in those 15 games. You might not get attacking returns often, but the kid knows how to rack up ghost points.


Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver pick or 5-8 FAB to get him.


Timothy Castagne (Ros 21%)

Prospects: The Belgian is back in the Premier League after 3 seasons with the Foxes. Fulham aren't the best defensive team around the block, having conceded 10 goals for the season, but it should be noted that half of these came against Manchester City. Additionally, recent injuries to popular high ceiling DEF assets such as Rico Henry and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, means that Castagne can easily fill a void as a DEF-4/5. Having scored 14 FPts vs Luton Town isn't something to brag about, but it's the spread of his points that should be noted, having registered at least one KP, TkW, ACNC, Int, CLR, CoS and BS. His tally even includes a YC! Castagne's place in the starting eleven isn't guaranteed (Robinson is currently injured), but he's an asset to keep an eye on.


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


Simon Adingra (Ros 21%)

Prospects: New boy Adingra was an early shout to be this season's Mitoma, as the breakout Brighton star. The Seagulls are only behind Champions Manchester City in terms of xG for the season, which means that any Brighton attacking asset you own, has a high chance of scoring well. Given that it is the club's debut season in Europe, there is great potential for rotation, and we saw a clear example of that in GW5, where Adingra was gifted his first start of the season. Simon registered his second attacking return in four appearances, which was an assist for Danny Welbeck's 1st goal of the campaign. Adingra also showed ghost point potential, scoring 9.5 of them via 1 KP, 2 TkWs, 2 ACNCs, 2 Int, 1 CoS and 1 AER. With the recent injury doubt to Solly March and an upcoming hectic schedule, Adingra could see more minutes.


Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver pick or 5-7 FAAB to get him.


James McAtee (Ros 8%)

Prospects: McAtee is back with the Blades for another season. His first campaign with Sheffield United was in the Championship during the 22/23 season, where he registered 9G & 3A in 21 appearances. James is currently on loan from Manchester City, which hints at the quality he possesses, as his owners were reluctant to let him go permanently. James has already had his first start for the season and came up against an in-form Tottenham Hotspur, although he still registered 6.5 FPts in 69 minutes. Although this included a CS point, there are still promising signs for McAtee to be considered as a MID-4/5 as he definitely has an eye for goal having racked up 0.3 xG with 2 SoT.


Verdict: I would use a low waiver pick or 2-4 FAAB to get him.
