The Waiver Wire: Gameweek 27

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 27 Waiver Wire has to offer.

Ozan Kabak | Liverpool | Defender | 34% owned

Liverpool defenders aren’t the obvious avenue to take at the moment but they may just pick up a rare clean sheet this weekend against goal shy Fulham. The Reds are having a horrible time of it at home and a reaction is to be expected after another painful home defeat at the hands of Chelsea on Thursday. Ozan Kabak has had a tough start to life in England but he seems to score well in Fantrax scoring and is well worth a one week pick up. For lack of better defensive options this week, that is…

Cengiz Under | Leicester City |

Surely Cengiz Under gets his chance now. Surely!

We all watched on in disbelief as Hamza Choudhury was preferred to him in the first post-Barnes injury lineup against Burnley in midweek. However, a less than inspiring Leicester showing will surely spark another Rodgers reshuffle…surely!

Bar Youri Tielemans, the Foxes lack hugely in the creativity department at the moment, meaning the Turk should get his chance this weekend! His lack of midweek start should at least make him easier to claim on waivers this week!

Willian | Arsenal | Forward | 46% Owned

Ive been burned by this guy plenty of times before. But my love for a guy I previously concerned the most fun player to own in Togga scoring keeps me coming back for more!

The green shoots of revival for Willian in an Arsenal shirt started to shine through again vs Benfica in the Europa League and the subsequent start vs Leicester yielded two assists in a 22.5 point showing last week.

Am I expecting to be burned again this week? Yes. But there are worse players to punt on at FWD3. If he begins to show anything like last season’s end of season form then you’ll be getting in a startable Forward at a bargain price!
