As we head into week 13 after the international break, there are players potentially available on your fantasy EPL waiver wire (under 50% rostered) that could help your team. Many teams, especially at the top, are being forced to rotate due to injuries, cards, and transfer rules, so there are some choices from players on top teams. The rest of the EPL Waiver Wire player suggestions are on struggling teams with good matchups and are key figures on their squads on both sides of the ball. When you’re looking to fill spots, you need players like this on a week-in and week-out basis.
The week starts with the best game of the week as Manchester City hosts Liverpool in a top-two matchup. But just as vital is the relegation battle match between Sheffield United and Bournemouth. Everton’s 10-point deduction makes things extra interesting at the bottom of the table.
Here’s a list of quality EPL Waiver Wire options to fill out your team in order from most to least rostered.
Week 13 Fantasy EPL Waiver Wire
Josh Brownhill – Midfielder – 41% Rostered. Burnley vs West Ham United
Burnley has a solid stretch of games of games coming up. Brownhill has shown to be a solid and consistent player on a team that needs way more of them. There’s a solid floor and decent ceiling for a quality player on a team with a lack of it. He’s being overlooked in 60% of the leagues.
Aaron Ramsdale – Goalie – 40% Rostered. Brentford vs Arsenal
Ramsdale regains his starting spot as David Raya is not allowed to play against his parent club, Brentford. Ramsdale will be out to show that he still has what it takes despite being the number two choice for Arteta at the moment. In his four starts this season, he conceded four goals with just a single clean sheet, although Arsenal did claim 10 points from those four games. If you’re looking for a keeper off the EPL waiver wire for the week, Ramsdale is a solid choice against a 4-4-4 Brentford team.
Lewis Hall – Defense – 42% Rostered. Newcastle vs Chelsea
Hall finally got significant minutes last game. With injuries to Newcastle’s defense growing, the Chelsea transfer may see his first start coming against his former club. That gives additional motivation for a young player to prove himself. He is a young player with talent on a quality defense. He has a chance not just to start this weekend, but a chance to earn an ongoing starting role moving forward.
Harry Toffolo – Defense – 34% Rostered. Nottingham Forest vs Brighton Hove Albion
Forest has yet to lose at home this season. They are a different team when playing in the friendly confines of City Ground. Tofollo has three assists over his last three home games. Even without clean sheet points, the left back is getting points on both sides of the field. They get an inconsistent Everton at home the following week, so you’ve got him for two straight home games.
Oliver Norwood – Midfielder – 26% Rostered. Sheffield United vs Bournemouth
Here’s another waiver wire choice that’s hidden down the list on a struggling team, but worth a roster spot now. The 18th place SHU get 16th Bournemouth this week and Burnley next week. Those are two good matchups for a team that desperately needs points. Lots of the offense is running through Norwood meaning he’ll have chances to keep scoring. Bournemouth have conceded the third most goals in the EPL.
Ross Barkley – Midfielder – 22% Rostered. Luton Town vs Crystal Palace
The English midfielder never has quite panned out as the superstar many thought he’d become. Maybe he’ll come good at Luton, who need a spark of creativity Barkley has now started three in a row, with quality outputs. He has 8 shots and two on target, which shows he’s shows playing with some confidence. Palace are mid-table and inconsistent, giving Luton some hope.
The EPL Waiver Wire for week 13 has players that you hold on to for a few weeks too. But don’t forget it’s a week-to-week game. Grab the players off the waiver wire where and when you can. Some of these players won’t be available for long. Good luck!
