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 30 Waiver Wire has to offer…
Caglar Soyuncu – Leicester City – Defender
With only four fixtures on the slate this week, locating a clean sheet from a stream-able defender is going to be a tough task. Wolves are obviously the team to target when they host Leeds on Friday but with most of their assets likely already owned, I’ve gone for Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu. I meant it when I said it’d be tough!
Leicester still look all over the shop defensively despite recent clean sheets but their GW30 home game against Brentford represents a good matchup for their defenders. I like Caglar Soyuncu the most out of those that are likely to be available as he will most likely be the one up against Ivan Toney to win those aerial battles. James Justin will also be useful if he gets the start at right back.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – Leicester City – Midfielder
Despite sounding like a national trust site, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has been one of the stand out new faces in the Premier League this season. The midfielder has slotted nicely into The Foxes midfield and has become a regular, every week starter. Although he hasn’t hit a bit score yet, he’s constantly around that 6/7 point mark with the potential to score much higher.
Other options (limited as they may be), include Manuel Lanzini and Leeds midfielder Mateusz Klich. It’s a tough week to stream midfielders!
Andriy Yarmolenko – West Ham United – Forward
The moment of the season so far very much belongs to West Ham forward Andriy Yarmolenko who came off the bench to open the scoring for West Ham against Aston Villa at the weekend, sparking an outpouring of emotion from the Ukrainian.
Having been given some much needed and well deserved time off, Yarmolenko now finds himself in a position where his team needs him with Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen both struggling with injuries that could keep them out of the game against Tottenham. He will, most likely, lead the line in the London derby, hoping to add to his first goal of the season.
