Gameweek 19 Waiver Wire Targets

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Gameweek 19 Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax.

In this article we will not look at new transfers. For all our suggestion on new transfers, check out our article on  The Draft Society

Romain Perraud

Position: Defender

Team: Southampton

Rostered: 21%

Next Fixture: Nottnigham Forest (Home)

Prospects: The Southampton wingback set out the game against Fulham after suffering the embarrasment of getting an own goal on Boxing Day. Southampton look like a true relegation candidate, but Lavia potentially being back to anchor the midfield and them facing fellow strugglers Forest does give one hope that the defence might get something here. Perraud has been good for attacking points as well as defnesive ones this season, so out of the defenders, he would be out pick.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-3 FAB to get him.

Naby Keita

Position: Midfielder

Team: Liverpool

Rostered: 6%

Next Fixture: Brentford (Away)

Prospects: Keita is finally back and he looked good in the Festive period coming in from the bench. With fixtures piling up, he could represent a cheap way to buy into the Liverpool attack. Oxlade-Chamberlain is highly unlikely to start 3 in a week and while seeing KEita at LW is an outside option, even if he does start in the midfield 3, he will be tasked with a more attacking role.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-3 FAB to get him.


Yoane Wissa

Position: Forward

Team: Brentford

Ownership: 14%

Next Fixture: Liverpool (Home)

Prospects:  Toney’s injury looks less serious than first feared, but hw will surely not be risked with such a short turnaround, so it is likely that Wissa comes in. Liverpool’s defence looks shaky to say the least, so Wissa could grab a return.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 0-3 FAB to get him.
