We have given ourselves the arbitrary threshold of 40% rostered as the level of player that most managers would find available on their waiver wire. This season we have started incorporating a second percentage, one that looks at rostership of players in the hyper-competitive Twitter-based leagues, like The #DPL Community League or the International Genie League we talk about in our Sleepers XI article over on The Draft Society.

This will include players that are likely to be available in even the most competitive of leagues (For example, ahead of the upcoming GW N’Golo Kanté might make our WW article, as he is 39% rostered officially, however, that is almost irrelevant for anyone in a competitive league as he is a whopping 100% rostered in the Community League).

We can get closer to providing relevant and useful advice for you by looking at different data sets, however, this is still not the pinnacle of waiver advice. The Pinnacle of Waiver advice is a tool we have just released over on our site that lets you get personalized waiver picks using all the available data, but customising it to your own league. This new app is called the FANTASY TOOLKIT and you can check it out for free for a limited time only if you click on the link. I will be using the Fantasy Toolkit to give you recommendations based on the personalized advice given to me by the Toolkit on my most competitive league, my Home League.

Gameweek 38 Waiver Wire Targets

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Gameweek 38 Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax.

Joel Ward

Position: Defender

Team: Crytal Palace

Rostered: 22%

Next Fixture: Nottingham Forest (Home)

Prospects: Ward has turned into a prime top-level defender lately and a jubilant Selhurst Park against nothing to play for, maybe starting their kids Forest seems like an ideal place for him to continue his renaissance.

James Milner

Position: Midfielder

Team: Liverpool

Rostered: 1%

Next Fixture: Southampton (Away)

Prospects: Even if Chelsea somehow beat United, Liverpool’s only chance of sneaking into the Champions League is if then Fulham go on to beat United too. Highly doubtful, which means that the final day of the season will not matter much for Klopp. Enter club legend and Klopp favourite Milly, who will surely get his chance to lace his boots one last time before he takes the Adam Lallana route to the South Coast.

Willy Gnonto

Position: Forward

Team: Leeds

Ownership: 22%

Next Fixture: Tottenham (Home)

Prospects: Leeds only have a chance to stay in the PL if they win. With Bamford potentially out injured, it will be down to the diminutive Italian to lead the line on the Final Day. Even a win does not guarantee them a victory, but they have to go for it, so I expect plenty of attacking flair which bodes well for ghost point collection.
