Gameweek 35 Waiver Wire Targets


Ryan Fredericks

Position: Defender

Team: West Ham

Ownership: 12%

Average Points per Match: 5.42

Next 4 Fixtures: nor (A), WAT (H), mun (A), AVL (H)

Prospects: Fredericks scored 10.75 points with no clean sheet or attacking returns in the loss to Burnley. With three out of four fixtures to end the season against bottom table opposition, I would consider him a must-own going forward. The West Ham right-back likes to get forward and pump in crosses and will rack up some defensive stats as well. I would expect a clean sheet and the potential for an assist against Norwich and Watford. Fredericks has DEF2 potential over the last few gameweeks, and could put up some big scores to help you win your gameweek. I would use a top priority claim on the West Ham full-back as the season draws to a close.


Tariq Lamptey

Position: Defender

Team: Brighton

Ownership: 14%

Average Points per Match: 7.65

Next 4 Fixtures: MCI (H), sou (A), NEW (H),  bur (A)

Prospects: Lamptey has started the last four matches, and has scored double digits in three of them, including vs. Liverpool. Brighton has three great fixtures to end the season and Manchester City, so it is worth putting in a claim for the defender this week. Lamptey likes to get forward and has the pace to beat defenders and send in crosses. He got an assist vs. Liverpool and could get another one before the season ends. Brighton has done well defensively against lower table teams, which could add to Lamptey’s upside. I would consider Lamptey a lower end DEF2 to end the season. Ahead of gameweek 35 I would put in a mid-tier waiver wire claim for the Brighton full-back.


Theo Walcott

Position: Forward

Team: Everton

Ownership: 12%

Average Points per Match: 4.38

Next 4 Fixtures: wol (A), AVL (H), shu (A), BOU (H)

Prospects: Walcott could play a part in the Southampton game on Thursday, and may see two starts to close out the season, based on the poor form of Iwobi and Sigurdsson. In playoff leagues, he is worth a punt to see if he will start the final two games. Walcott has FWD2 potential in the friendly fixtures and will provide the experience Everton need to score some goals to close out the season. While there is a massive risk Walcott doesn’t get any starts, he is still worth a punt on your last roster spot. I would use a low-end waiver wire claim on the Everton forward and stash him on your bench ahead of gameweek 35.


Gameweek 35 Trade-In Target


Sebastien Haller

Position: Forward

Team: West Ham

Average Points per Match: 11.09

Next 4 Fixtures: nor (A), WAT (H), mun (A), AVL (H)

Prospects: Haller marked his return to the West Ham side with a 28-minute cameo and five points. Haller could start as soon as the Norwich game and has the upside of a FWD1. Currently, Antonio and Bowen are racking up all the fantasy points, but are seeing fewer conversions on their key passes. Moyes will hope that Haller changes that. The striker has a nice floor of 5-7 points with his headers alone, and in these friendly matchups offers the upside of multiple attacking returns. I would look to trade a bigger name player in the range of a FWD2/MID3 who hasn’t been performing to get back Haller. Try to offer out: Jota, Mount, Deeney, Firmino, or McGinn for the West Ham forward.
