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 7 Waiver Wire has to offer!
Sebastian Haller | Forward | West Ham | 35% Owned
The latest news out of West Ham concerning the fitness of Michail Antonio is “worse than Moyes first thought”, meaning big Sebastian Haller may finally get his run in the starting XI! Smart managers will have seen this coming due to Antonio’s previous fitness woes and stashed Haller already ahead of some nice upcoming fixtures. But the French’s giant is owned in less than half of Fantrax leagues and should be snapped up if possible. If he can continue his cup form into the league then he will be a great asset! Assuming Antonio is actually injured this time…
Cengiz Under | Midfielder | Leicester | 28% Owned
Leicester’s new winger hasn’t been given much of a chance to string a run of games together yet but Cengiz Under’s match winning introduction against Arsenal could see his time coming very soon. The Turk put the ball on a plate for Jamie Vardy to wrap up all three point at The Emirates and will be hoping this earns him his first start against Leeds this weekend.
Tom Cairney | Midfielder | Fulham | 18% Owned
Those with long memories will know Tom Cairney’s Championships stats don’t really translate into Fantrax points in the Premier League. However, he’s surprised plenty with his recent form, scoring 14.5 ghost points against Sheffield United before bagging a last minute screamer against Crystal Palace in another big haul in GW6. The battle with West Brom already looks like a must win game for Fulham and Cairney should be at the forefront of most good things once more.
Jacob Murphy | Midfielder | Newcastle | 1% Owned
Steve Bruce was thrilled with Jacob Murphy’s first start against Wolves in GW6 and so he should be. The young midfielder topped off a busy display with a late free kick equaliser for Newcastle at the weekend and you’d think that he will keep his place once more this weekend. With Jonjo Shelvey out with a hernia issue and Ryan Fraser failing to impress, Murphy might even keep some set piece duties over the next few weeks and become a decent buy low asset.
