Saint-Maximum has started the last three games for the Magpies and has scored well despite tough matches. Saint-Maximum looks to have played himself into a starting role. Newcastle has a fairly decent run of matches coming upConnolly was a starter Brighton in their 3-2 win against Everton. Brighton faces Norwich in GW11 which is always a good opportunity for attacking returns. He could be a good option for a single week plugin. Rodriguez scored a cracking goal late in the game against Chelsea. Playing the full 90 for the last two games he might have become a regular starter for in attack for Burnely alongside either Wood or A Barnes. They also have some great fixtures in the forthcoming gameweeks.

Having come of the bench in GW9, Kovacic got the full 90 against Burnley in GW10. This might your last chance to get on the Chelsea train and he should still be available in your league. Hendo has been a starter in the last two game weeks for the team at the top of the Premier League. Who wouldn't want in on some of that?!? Onel would be my 1st pick this week if I could guarantee he starts. Coming off an injury, Farke has been slowly upping his game time each week, getting a full 45 in GW10. However, will he get the nod in GW11? That remains to be seen.

Playing pretty much every minute in the Newcastle, Lascelles could offer some solid points each game week. Occasionally he may even get you a goal as he did in GW10. Worth a punt if you are in a squeeze against a poor West Ham side.Lovern seems to have been given the nod by Klopp to replace the injured Matip who is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury. Another Magpie makes it in the top picks this week. Probably due to the poor start to the season no one wanted anything to do with them. Lately, their form has improved and they may now be viable fantasy options with some easier matchups ahead.

FPL Draft – Gameweek 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

Gameweek 10 of the Premier League season is just around the corner. It’s time to check those waiver wires for possible pickups. My pickups of the week are under 45% owned in all Fantrax Togga leagues.

Forwards

Pick 1
Neal Maupay – Brighton – 39% Owned – Ownership Trend -27.6%
A regular in the Brighton attack throughout this season. Maupay has a relatively easy couple of fixtures, with two home games against Everton and Norwich. So could be handy if you need someone to plugin this week. However, after the Norwich fixture, Brighton faces @Man Utd, Leicester, and @Liverpool.
Pick 2
Allan Saint-Maximum – Newcastle – 26% Owned – Ownership Trend -40%
Saint-Maximum has started the last two games for the Magpies and has scored well despite tough matches against Man Utd and Chelsea. With Newcastle offering very little in the attack, Saint-Maximum may have played himself into a starting role. Newcastle has a fairly decent run of matches coming up with games against; Wolves, @West Ham, Bournemouth, and @Villa. All very win-able matches.
Pick 3
Theo Walcott – Everton – 15% Owned – Ownership Trend +15%
Walcott was back with a bang after missing time with a concussion. Whilst Theo is still a shadow of his former self, he may offer some upside with some easier fixtures on the horizon. @Brighton, Spurs, @Southampton, and Norwich

Midfielders

Pick 1
Andreas Pereira – Man Utd – 17% Owned – Ownership Trend +0.3%
Averaging around 2 Shot per game, Pereira may offer some upside in a Man Utd team that has the easiest run of fixtures over the next 5 game weeks. @Norwich, @Bournemouth, Brighton, @Sheff Utd, and Villa.
Pick 2
Harvey Barnes – Leicester – 39% Owned – Ownership Trend +6.3%
It’s always good to try and grab players in an ever-improving team. Barnes has been getting some assists over the past few game weeks and may become a regular in the Leicester midfield.
Pick 3
Tom Cleverley – Watford – 40% Owned – Ownership Trend -10%
Even though I’ve personally wanted nothing to do with anyone even remotely associated with Watford this season Cleverley could be an OK option if you are in a pinch.
Playing Bournemouth, @Norwich, Burnley @Southampton in their next 5 games.

Defense

Pick 1
Kurt Zouma – Chelsea – 35% Owned – Ownership Trend -31.5%
If you are looking for a part of an improving Chelsea team, Zouma may be your last option. Starting the last two games he could become a regular in a decent looking, young Chelsea side.
Pick 2
Jack OConnell – Sheff Utd – 41% Owned – Ownership Trend -8.8%
Sheffield is looking very strong at the back. Up and coming games don’t look too bad. @West Ham United, Burnley @Spurs and Man Utd. OConnell may still be available in your league, grab some of Sheffield steel before it’s too late.
Pick 3
Max Aarons – Norwich – 15% Owned – Ownership Trend -9.7%
Norwich has been shipping goals this season. However, they looked much improved in game week 8, albeit against a poor Bournemouth performance. Aarons is a regular feature in the Norwich attack and can offer some attacking upside. Steer clear of the Norwich full-backs!!
