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 24 waiver wire has to offer!
Japhet Tanganga | Tottenham Hotspur | Defender | 21% owned
Jose Mourinho obviously likes what he sees in young defender Japhet Tanganga. The youth prospect has started both games since his surprise inclusion against Liverpool and was solid again in Gameweek 23, contributing well to a very rare away clean sheet for Spurs.
Norwich City are next to be welcomed to White Hart Lane, a favourable match up in which Tanganga could score well in once more.
Brandon Williams | Manchester United | Defender | 38% owned
Sticking with the theme of youngsters, Brandon Williams has well and truly made his mark at Manchester United this season.
The academy product didn’t look overawed by the occasion at Anfield at the weekend and arguably came out of the test better than Aaron Wan Bissaka did. It looks very unlikely that Luke Shaw has the fitness for two games in a week so Williams should keep his place for the visit of Burnley.
Robert Snodgrass |West Ham United | Midfielder | 56% owned
It’s time to jump on board the double gameweek bandwagon! West Ham United and Liverpool will both enjoy a double gameweek this week, meaning you can do worse than stock up on their assets where possible.
Robert Snodgrass started the draw against Everton and provided the assist for the goal. Whether he starts both games is a lottery but if he starts the first game it’s well worth putting him in your lineup.
Alternatively, Declan Rice is likely to play 180 minutes this Gameweek and should also pick up around 12-15 points in the process.
Allan Saint-Maximin | Newcastle United | Forward | 52% owned
Oh he’s back! The men mentioned more here than on any other FPL based website returned with a bang this week. Allan Saint-Maximin provided the assist for Newcastle United’s late winner at the weekend with a superb, pinpoint cross.
He wasn’t at his dazzling best but he managed the full 90 minutes and returned a tidy 11.5 points thanks to his assist. If he’s available in your league, this SHOULD be the last chance you get to pick him up!
