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.


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


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.


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!!
