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 32 Waiver Wire has to offer…
Wesley Fofana – Leicester City – Defender
The return of Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans has instantly made Leicester City look a far more solid outfit. While Evans will still be managed carefully due to his history of persistent injury and age, Fofana should play the majority of the rest of this season which makes him an excellent prospect with numerous doubles to come.
The Foxes face a tough test against in form Crystal Palace this weekend but Fofana has shown that he isn’t clean sheet dependant and is startable in Gameweek 32. Regardless of whether you play him this week, the young French star is one to stash for the rest of the season, especially for their enticing double fixtures in Gameweek 33 and 36.
Fred – Manchester United – Midfielder
“Fred is actually United’s best player” is a phrase that’s been said ironically for a lot of this season so far. On current form, the Brazilian has to take that crown without a single hint of irony and looks like he will be a crucial cog in the machine if United are to achieve the unlikely task of claiming a Champions League place.
He was, once more, their best player last weekend against Leicester, claiming 21 points in Fantrax thanks to an all action display topped off by a goal. I’m starting him in my lineup this week against Everton before he starts a double gameweek at home against Norwich in GW33.
Fabio Silva – Wolves – Forward
Raul Jimenez’s suspension has given patient youngster Fabio Silva a chance to lead the line for Wolves and he did it well during their win over Aston Villa in the Midlands derby on Saturday. He provided an assist and was generally possessed the sharpness that Jimenez has lacked in recent weeks.
With the Mexican missing again for their trip to Newcastle, Silva will get his chance to impress once again and could be in with a chance of keeping hold of that spot with another good showing. I also like the look of his team mate Trincao this week but streamable forward seem to be few and far between once again this week.
It’s always worth looking ahead if you can so if you can get a forward with a double next week (Joelinton, Broja, Adams or Iheanacho) you can get yourself a step ahead of the game!
