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 8 Waiver Wire has to offer!
Pablo FOrnals | Midfielder | West Ham | 53% Owned
Despite a horrible start to the season fixture-wise, Pablo Fornals has already helped himself to five attacking returns, including a goal at the home of the champions last weekend. West Ham’s fixtures are about to get better, much better, starting with their game at home to Fulham this week! It’s time to stock up on their assets right now and Fornals will be the easiest to acquire out of all of them.
Rayan Ait-Nouri | Defender | Wolves | 28% Owned
As debuts go, Rayan Ait-Nouri has one to remember on Friday! His ownership suggests plenty of managers took a punt after seeing the early lineups and were rewarded with a goal and a clean sheet in a 21.5 point display. It remains to be seen where the young full back fits in when Marcal returns to fitness but he’s certainly done himself no harm with a great first performance!
Pascal Gross | Midfielder | Brighton | 12% Owned
This is a punt full of wishful thinking but if Andros Townsend can stage a Fantrax revival, surely Pascal Gross can! His rare start against Tottenham showed he is at least in the manager’s plans and to his credit he played well, setting up Brighton’s only goal and putting up 14 points in a tough fixture😘. Could a Fantrax darling of two years ago be making a comeback? He plays in this weekend’s first game so he’s worth the punt knowingly that you can drop him straight away!
Sander Berge | Midfielder | SHeffield United | 10% Owned
While Gross is a punt, Sander Berge could be a steady rest of the season kind of pick. After taking (and scoring) a penalty at Anfield, Berge took charge of most set pieces against Man City and seemed to push forward regularly, creating chances for others and gaining space to shoot himself. He looks like a must own asset in 12 team leagues from now on. Very useful if you need to plug a midfield spot to facilitate a trade or swap out a player with a bad matchup.
