Gameweek 21 Waiver Wire Targets

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Gameweek 21 Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax.  These players will also have a favorable run of fixtures upcoming, so they could perform very well over the upcoming period!

Will Hughes

Position: Midfielder

Team: Crystal Palace

Ownership: 24%

Next Fixture: West Ham United (Home)

Prospects: Former Watford midfielder, Hughes took a long time to settle into a role at Crystal Palace, but he has averaged 10 points in the last 4 games, which is a great return for a free agent pickup. With a lot of the squad going to AFCON, he will continue to have opportunities to impress.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or about 2-5% of my remaining FAB on Hughes.

Jan Bednarek

Position: Defender

Team: Southampton

Rostered: 35%

Next Fixture: Newcastle (Home)

Prospects: Touted in this week’s Ghost Pointer Hunters, Bednarek has quietly had an amazing Christmas period. 26 ghost points in the past 2 weeks is nothing to be scoffed at. Now that Salisu is out through suspension again and Lyanco is suspected to have COVID. Big Jan is looking like a great pickup to face Newcastle in the first weekend of 2022.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or about 0-3% of my remaining FAB on Bednarek.

João Pedro

Position: Forward

Team: Watford

Ownership: 9%

Next Fixture: Tottenham (Home)

Prospects:  The Watford attack has always been a source of good points this season and the potential of upcoming double gameweeks makes them even more interesting. Pedro is the only one available in our lower rostered range, so go pick him up if you need a FWD.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or about 0-1% of my remaining FAB on Pedro.
