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…
Arthur Masuaku – West Ham – Defender
Arthur Musuaku was given a surprise start at the Etihad on Sunday as part of a five at the back formation. Regular left back Aaron Cresswell also came off injured after a collision with the post during the game, meaning Masuaku may yet see more action this week against Brighton.
The flying full back is always value for money and will pick up easy points through dribbles and key passes as he ventures forward.
Gabriel Martinelli – Arsenal – Midfielder
Bukayo Saka starred for Arsenal once more this weekend against Newcastle but saw a good afternoon brought to an abrupt end on the hour mark after picking up an injury. Nicolas Pepe would’ve been the obvious choice to replace him off the bench but it was actually Gabriel Martinelli who was given the nod.
He took full advantage, making it 2-0 almost instantly with an exquisite finish. Saka looks set to miss out in GW14 and Surely Martinelli will be favourite to replace him on Arsenal’s right wing. Depending on how long Saka is out for, the Brazilian could be one to hold on to for the run in.
Joelinton – Newcastle United – Forward
Low ownership forwards are few and far between at the moment, meaning Joelinton is one of our Waiver Wire tips once more.
The Brazilian had a disappointing day at The Emirates on Saturday but will be much more hopeful of replicating his GW12 showing of 25.5 points when fellow strugglers Norwich City come to town on Tuesday.
