FPL Draft: Premier League Waiver Wire Week 24

The Premier League transfer deadline closed and with it so did the trade deadline in a majority of Fantrax leagues. Your team should be somewhat set from this point forward. There have been two-thirds of the season to construct a roster, and only 10 or 11 games remain until the fantasy playoffs. Your only weapon now to influence your team roster and make a move in your league standing is the Premier League waiver wire. You’re in the right place.

Week 24 Premier League Waiver Waiver Wire

The FPL Draft waiver wire deals with players owned in 65% or less of Fantrax Leagues.

1. Solly March – Midfielder – Brighton and Hove Albion – 62% Owned

It gives me butterflies to finally get to recommend a Brighton player with conviction. As mentioned here before, March is a polarising figure at the Amex, but for fantasy his impact is undeniable. In Togga scoring, March is currently ranked as the 11th fantasy midfielder between Bernardo and Christian Ericksen. Considering that’s the kind of company he keeps, it’s ludicrous that March is only owned in 62% of leagues. Brighton is in a tough run and on the surface look vulnerable to being dragged into a relegation battle. However, their rest of season schedule is sublime. March’s performances warrant his playing time, and his results speak for themselves. March can be a league winner with a high ceiling in this final stretch. He should be picked up from the Premier League waiver wire in all leagues.

2. James Ward Prowse – Midfielder – Southampton – 54% Owned

It looks like it’s going to be a week for English midfielders on bottom half teams. Hassenhuttl’s appointment at Southampton has meant that a significant proportion of Southampton’s players have had a boost to their fantasy value. Prime among those players is James Ward Prowse who is on fire at the moment in Togga scoring leagues. Prowse is taking good shots, making key passes and putting in crosses at a rate indicative of a premium midfielder. He has been a top five midfielder since the start of January. When a players uptick in performance stems from a situation change such as the one at Southampton, fantasy managers should take note. Add Ward-Prowse from the Premier League waiver wire in all leagues.

3. Matt Ryan – Goalkeeper – Brighton and Hove Albion – 42% Owned

Australia might be everyone’s favorite plucky underdogs when it comes to football, but Brighton fans will be glad to see them leave the Asian Cup. Ryan returned to Brighton last week and this week managed a clean sheet against a decent Watford team. Ryan’s low ownership percentage right now is a result of his recent absence. Brighton has a great run of fixtures to end the season and most importantly play only four games away from home. A backup keeper isn’t a bad idea heading to the playoffs, and you could do worse than picking up Matt Ryan from the Premier League waiver wire.

4.Dwight McNeil – Forward – Burnley – 34% Owned

Yeah, I’d never heard of him either. The 19-year-old midfielder/striker has worked his way into becoming a Burnley regular in 2019. McNeil put’s in crosses at an extremely high rate making up for his relative lack of goals and assists. He is the number two fantasy forward in togga scoring formats in January. Owners can ride the hot hand and feel good about picking up McNeil from the Premier League waiver wire.

5. Joe Gomez – Defender – Liverpool – 58% Owned

If you happen to find yourself in the privileged position of being secure in a playoff spot, can I reintroduce Joe Gomez. Gomez is currently sidelined with a lower leg fracture and won’t be returning until the end of the month. However, if your destiny is set until the end of the month, you could be getting a premium asset at a massively depressed price. Gomez is a risky pick up for fantasy owner looking for a potential short term league winner at the end of the season.
