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 29 Waiver Wire has to offer…
Ben Davies – Tottenham – Defender
Matt Doherty will almost certainly be the more tempting pick for Tottenham’s double gameweek this week but his team mate Ben Davies will probably end up being the more dependable option (plus he has the lower ownership which is really what we are after in this article).
The wing backs will most likely rotate over a busy schedule but Davies is the ever reliable, ever dependable option at the left centre back slot and will guarantee you 180 minutes of action this week as well as a fixture in the blank gameweek in GW30.
Everton are another team with what looks like a fairly enticing double but do you really want to be packing your defence with their players at the moment?#
Naby Keita – Liverpool – Midfielder
Naby Keita is probably the easiest way into the Liverpool double this week. Thiago has now returned to training but it’ll be very difficult for Jurgen Klopp to ignore the form of Keita during the Spaniards absence and it appears Keita is now finally an important part of The Reds set up.
I don’t expect two starts for Keita but if Thiago starts in the Champions League in midweek it will surely lead to rotation in the early Saturday Premier League fixture against Brighton. If Keita gets the nod against out of form Brighton, he’s worth starting anyway with the thought he should get at least 20 minutes against Arsenal in game two. The same theory can be applied to Harvey Elliot or Curtis Jones should either start against Brighton.
Anthony Gordon – Everton – FOrward
I know Anthony Gordon has featured heavily in FF92 articles in recent weeks but that’s because he is one the one bright spark in a frankly awful Everton side. A home double against Wolves and Newcastle looks appetizing and I’d start any Everton assets that don’t play in the defence.
Gordon has consistently scored well as a Fantrax asset despite the Toffees horrendous form and he even (somehow) picked up 11 points in the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Spurs on Monday night. I’d fancy the youngster to hit the 20 point mark in this double without any goals or assists.
