Gameweek 26 Waiver Wire Targets

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Gameweek 26 Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax.

Junior Firpo

Position: Defender

Team: Leeds United

Rostered: 2%

Next Fixture: Chelsea (Away)

Prospects: The oft-maligned fullback had himself a day against struggling Southampton – a goal and a clean sheet. He hasn’t really been able to string together consistent performances since arriving in the EPL from Barcelona. But he now has the opportunity to do so; with Pascal Struijk out, Firpo should persist at the starting LB spot. A date at Stamford Bridge, a very friendly matchup these days, beckons this GW, with other favorable fixtures in the future.

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

Jonjo Shelvey

Position: Midfielder

Team: Nottingham Forest

Rostered: 2%

Next Fixture: Everton (Home)

Prospects: No, it’s not 2018. Jonjo Shelvey actually retains some fantasy value again. How much fantasy value depends on him staying fit & regaining form over the next few weeks. He went under the radar as one of the 28k signings for Forest but has started back-to-back games. Shelvey picked up 8 points against West Ham & will be looking to build on that in a series of kind fixtures moving forward. Don’t expect immediate fireworks – this is more of a medium-term punt that could pay dividends ROS.

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

Manor Solomon

Position: Forward

Team: Fulham

Ownership: 3%

Next Fixture: Brentford (Away)

Prospects: The next Kaoru Mitoma? No, there’s only one. But there are some similarities. Like the Japanese fantasy God, Solomon has been a high-impact sub for some weeks and is biding his time before hopefully becoming a regular starter. This past GW marked 3 consecutive games with a goal for the dynamic Israeli winger. Now could be the time to hop on the bandwagon before he becomes the next big thing.

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