Gameweek 22 Waiver Wire Targets

Here we outline Fantasy EPL Gameweek 22 Waiver Wire Targets that are 40% rostered or below on Fantrax.

In this article, we will not look at new transfers. For all our suggestions on new transfers, check out our article on The Draft Society : January Transfers Part One, January Transfers Part Two

Luke Ayling

Position: Defender

Team: Leeds

Rostered: 11%

Next Fixture: Nottingham Forest (Away), Manchester United (Away)

Prospects: Ayling has really turned a corner in recent weeks. 7.5 and 7 with 2 goals conceded in each followed by a monster 18.75 with a clean sheet has earned him Ghost Point Hunter status and we hope he continues to collect those pesky poltergeists. Although both fixtures in the double are away from home, Ayling should be able to ghost his way to close to 20 points even without getting a clean sheet.

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

Tyler Adams

Position: Midfielder

Team: Southampton

Rostered: 31%

Next Fixture: Nottingham Forest (Away), Manchester United (Away)

Prospects: I am not one to recommend defensive midfielders, especially ones that have only reached double digits 3 times this season, however, double gameweeks make us do things we do not want to do. The American has only posted a negative score once this season and that qualifies him for the low-risk, medium-reward option in the upcoming double. He is flagged as questionable for the FA Cup game at the weekend, so keep an eye if he is in fact in the squad, but if so, I expect him to get 180 mins and reach double digits.

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

Dango Ouattara

Position: Forward

Team: Bournemouth

Ownership: 4%

Next Fixture: Brighton (Away)

Prospects:  The Burkinabé forward hit the ground running for the South Coast outfit providing an assist in his debut en route to a very impressive 16.5 points. The Ouagadougou-born Ouattara was a bright presence throughout eliciting positive reviews for his performance. He played on the right wing, and will strive to do enough to nail down the spot even when Dom Solanke returns up top. Brighton have conceded a goal in all but 1 (vs LIV) of their last six games and will face a Bournemouth side desperately trying to steer clear of relegation. If in fact Bournemouth find the net, the man raised at Majestic FC will surely be involved.

Verdict: I would use a low-end waiver claim or 5-7 FAB to get him.
