Those who think Fantrax Leagues are won and lost at the draft are wrong. Very wrong.
In fact this is where the winners will be winners because of their sharp eye for a bargain and the losers will be losers because…well, they ignore the Waiver Wire.
Each week, we will analyse those low ownership players that could win you your match up or even become a mainstay in your roster for weeks and months. Here is what the Gameweek 21 waiver wire has to offer!
Fabian Balbuena | West Ham United | Defender | 12% owned
It’s slim pickings this week when it comes to defenders on the Waiver Wire but West Ham defender Fabian Balbuena could be worth a shout.
Balbuena has scored well in Togga scoring this season despite his team’s defensive frailties. Will the Hammers benefit from the new manager bounce? Wednesday’s Fixture against struggling Bournemouth is an ideal place to start.
Kourtney Hause | Aston Villa | Defender | 4% owned
Hardly a Hausehold name (sorry) but Kortney Hause has scored well in recent weeks.
The clean sheet against Norwich City in GW19 yielded 19.25 points while he still scored 5 having conceded three times at Watford. One to watch for this week’s game against shot shy Burnley.
Aaron Mooy | Brighton | Midfielder | 19% owned
Aaron Mooy’s ownership should be much higher than 19%, especially after a masterful performance against Bournemouth at the weekend.
Thanks to numerous key passes, Mooy was already scoring well before his “Bergkamp esque” finish. If he’s available in your league, make him a priority.
Reiss Nelson | Arsenal | Forward | 10% owned
A more left field pick here but Reiss Nelson has started Arsenal’s last three matches.
We’re all expecting some kind of turnaround under Mikel Arteta and it looks as though the Spaniard is the latest manager who isn’t an admirer of record signing Nicolas Pepe, at least for now.
