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 23 Waiver Wire has to offer…
Hassane Kamara – Watford – Defender
Hassane Kamara is one of the new arrivals we are yet to analyse on FF92. The left back scored twice and assisted once in 36 Ligue 1 appearances for Nice last season, suggesting his attacking output for Watford would be limited and, therefore, Kamara wouldn’t be an asset to get excited about.
His first Fantrax outing was impressive though, seeing him score 13.5 points despite conceding to Newcastle United. Watford will never be a decent defensive side in this season’s Premier League but that may not matter for Kamara owners if he continues to give these all action performances. Gameweek 23 gives him the ideal opportunity to continue this hot start as The Hornets host fellow strugglers Norwich City in a must win game for both sides.
Mateusz Klich – Leeds United – Midfielder
Back to back wins for against Burnley and West Ham have seen Leeds United return to something resembling that team that everyone grew to love over the course of last season. This week they will be hot favourites to win their third league game in a row when they host struggling Newcastle at Elland Road.
One of those who has enjoyed the recent upturn in form is Mateusz Klich who has thrived in his midfield role. Klich scored in a 22 point haul against Burnley and was desperately unlucky to see another disallowed against West Ham when his goalbound shot clipped Rodrigo in an offside position.
Klich should be in the thick of the attack once again as Leeds look to propel themselves to safety against a Toon side who can’t buy a win at the moment.
Joao Pedro – Watford – Forward
All the talk ahead of the “ghost” Double Gameweek 22 surrounded Watford’s top assets Josh King and Emmanuel Dennis who would’ve been relishing two kind fixtures against Newcastle and Burnley. I managed to get the cheaper Joao Pedro in and was delighted with his goal in the first game, only to be gutted when he was denied the chance to have a go at Burnley on Tuesday!
After early season injury problems, Pedro has come into some form in recent weeks. His goal in GW22 followed a strike in the FA cup last weekend at Leicester and the Brazilian will be confident of making it three in three against Norwich City on Friday night.
