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 38 Waiver Wire has to offer…
Davinson Sanchez – Tottenham Hotspur – Defender
It’s always a good idea to target any clubs with something to play for on the final day of the season. Not only do Tottenham have 4th place well within their grasp, they face basement boys Norwich City on the last day who will just be hoping that they don’t leave the Premier League with a wimper.
Filling in for the stricken Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez picked up an unexpected haul of 22.75 points in the GW37 win over Burnley (in part thanks to winning the penality) and will be confident of another clean sheet against another side struggling for goals. Any member of the Spurs back line should be started this week in Fantrax rosters but I like Sanchez as the player to pick up the most defensive contributions.
Yoane Wissa – Brentford – Midfielder
After some decent cameo appearances off the bench, Yoane Wissa seems to be establishing himself as a first team player at Brentford and may be one to watch as a late round sleeper in next season’s drafts. The midfielder has started the last two, scored in them both and was denied a brace when Seamus Coleman was judged to have helped Wissa’s shot into his own net.
It promises to be a fiery occasion as The Bees host relegation threatened Leeds on the last day. The visitors must win which could like to plenty of space being left for the attacking trio of Ivan Toney, Bryan Mbuemo and Wissa to exploit.
Danny Welbeck – Brighton – Forward
There’s always one obscure player that ends the season on a high. While Wissa looks to be the representative from the midfielders, experienced Premier League striker Danny Welbeck looks to have found his shooting boots for Brighton.
“Welbz” is on fire at the moment and will fancy his chances of adding to the delicate finish at Elland Road in GW37 with another goal at home to West Ham on the last day of the season. He doesn’t always pick up many ghost points but that won’t matter if he continues to find the net like he has recently.
