Gameweek 11 Waiver Wire Targets



Position: Forward

Team: Leeds United

Ownership: 34%

Next 5 Fixtures: che (A), WHU (H), NEW (H), mun (A), BUR (H)

Prospects: Raphinha managed 17 points and the winning goal vs. Everton. In only his second start of the season, Raphinha looks like he has been in the Premier League for years. A very dangerous attacker for a team that loves to score, he was unlucky to get just the one attacking return. Leeds come into a bit of a tougher schedule, but still have the tools to score goals in their upcoming fixtures.

Raphinha should provide you with low-end FWD2 value for the rest of the season, but if he hits a patch of form, could score like a low-end FWD1. He will surely be in the Leeds XI almost every week, and will add a new dynamic that Costa didn’t to their attack.

Verdict: I would use a top waiver claim on Raphinha or about 10-20% of my FAAB budget on this exciting talent.



Position: Forward

Team: Newcastle United

Ownership: 13%

Next 5 Fixtures: avl (A), WBA (H), lee (A), FUL (H), mci (A)

Prospects: Joelinton finished with 31.5 points with a goal and assist in the 2-0 win vs. Crystal Palace. Joelinton may have found some form at the perfect time, with a very friendly fixture list coming up for Newcastle. He had a total of seven shots with three on target, and six aerials won. Joelinton should provide a solid floor of 5-7 points with headers and shots, but as we saw will have tremendous upside over the next few weeks.

Bruce will look to continue that Wilson – Joelinton partnership over the next games with Saint-Maximin and Fraser having picked up injuries, and Almiron in very poor form. Joelinton is a solid FWD3 with FWD2 upside over the next few games.

Verdict: I would use a mid-tier waiver claim or 2-5% of my FAAB on Joelinton.


Moussa Djenepo

Position: Midfielder

Team: Southampton

Ownership: 24%

Next 5 Fixtures: bri (A), SHU (H), ars (A), MCI (H), ful (A)

Prospects: Djenepo has been electric since gaining a spot in the Southampton XI. He has scored eight or more points in his last 4 games and always looks a danger when on the ball. Ings will be back next week, probably on the bench, so the only worry here is who loses their spot in the XI in two weeks? The two obvious choices are either Djenepo or Walcott. Based on the formation, right now it is looking likely to be Walcott. I would still pick up Djenepo and hope he starts at least the next two very friendly matchups. He could have value as a MID4 if he can start at least 70% of remaining games.

Verdict: I would look to use a mid-tier waiver claim or 2-5% of my FAAB on Djenepo.


Gameweek 11 Trade-In Target


Gabriel Jesus

Position: Forward

Team: Manchester City

Next 5 Fixtures: sou (A), whu (A), MCI (H), shu (A), LEE (H)

Prospects: Jesus managed an assist in the 5-0 win vs. Burnley. You may be thinking that 12 points in a 5-0 win is quite poor, and may wonder why on earth I’d recommend trading Jesus in. Simply because Man City attack looks lethal again. Aguero can’t get over this knee injury, and I would place Jesus at 70-80% starts. Manchester City has some very friendly matchups coming up, where you would think Jesus gets his fair share of returns. You can never go wrong by trading in a City attacker, especially one who is competing with the injury-prone Aguero.

Verdict: I would look to offer a FWD2 + MID4/DEF2 to bring in Jesus. Try to package players such as Willian, McBurnie, Che Adams, Lookman, Kante, Phillips, Maguire, Masuaku in a deal for the Manchester City forward.
