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 14 Waiver Wire has to offer.
Kortney Hause | Aston Villa | Defender | 0% Owned
With Ezri Konsa our through illness, Kortney Hause got his first start of the season in GW13 against Burnley and it’s fair to say he took his chance well!
Hause won almost everything in the air and look comfortable in a solid Aston Villa defence against Burnley, scoring 17.25 points thanks to countless aerials and a clean sheet. It’s unclear whether Konsa will be back for the West Brom game this week so it’s well worth taking a chance on the fresh legs of Hause for another solid showing in GW14.
Anwar El Ghazi | Aston Villa | Midfielder | 7% Owned
Staying with Villa, Anwar El Ghazi was another who took his chance this week thanks to injuries to others. Ross Barkley May return for the derby with West Brom. If not, El Ghazi looks to be a fantastic streaming option if his 23.5 point score in a 0-0 draw is anything to go by!
Ryan Fraser | Newcastle United | Midfielder | 24% Owned
GW13 saw the return of Fantrax darling Ryan Fraser and he reminded everyone what he can do with an assist in a 19 point haul.
“Wee man” had his sharpest game in a Newcastle shirt by some distance against Leeds and will be looking to keep his shirt for a winnable game at home to an improving Fulham this weekend. Fraser looked happy to take on his marker and a combination of successful dribbles as well as quality delivery from open play and set pieces should see him continue to score well.
Ivan Cavaleiro | Fulham | Forward | Forward | 31% Owned
Quality low ownership forwards are hard to come by at the moment in Fantrax. Wanting to resist the urge to pick Joelinton, I’ve gone for the sharp looking Ivan Cavaleiro who seems to have nailed down a starting place for Fulham. Ademola Lookman is by far Fulham’s best asset but Cavaleiro isn’t too far behind him, especially now he seems to be on penalties too. Well worth a punt this week against a threadbare looking Newcastle side.
