Gameweek 8 Waiver Wire Targets

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Gameweek 8 Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax.

Kurt Zouma

Position: Defender

Team: West Ham

Rostered: 23%

Next Fixture: Everton (Away)

Prospects: Zouma has not been anything close to his old Chelsea days when it comes to Fantrax production, but the possibility of facing a cross+aerial heavy attack will help his floor (if DCL starts) and the fact that that attack is far from prolific will help his ceiling with a CS being a very real possibility.

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

Joe Aribo

Position: Midfielder

Team: Southampton

Rostered: 19%

Next Fixture: Aston Villa (Away)

Prospects: The decent IRL performances of the former Rangers man have not yet translated into great Fantasy scores but facing a very lacklustre Villa side might just be the push he needs to have a breakout score.

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

Adam Armstrong

Position: Forward

Team: Southampton

Ownership: 15%

Next Fixture: Aston Villa (Away)

Prospects:  Just like in Aribo’s case, the opportunity to play against Villa in their current state and the fact that the Blank Gameweek results in even less pickup possibilities elevates Armstrong from a “do not pick” to a decent punt. He will not have a great floor but could end up with an attacking return.

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