Drafts experts Rotoworld looks at the players to target ahead of the Gameweek 23 waiver deadline on Friday

Each week, Fantasy Premier League Draft experts Rotoworld will help managers prepare their squads for the Gameweek ahead with promising options.

The Gameweek 23 deadline for waivers, which allows you to swap players, is Friday, 18 January at 11:30 GMT.

Erik Lamela (TOT)

The absence of both Harry Kane and Son Heung-min can enhance the Argentinian's pitch time at Fulham. Lamela has a reasonable four goals and two assists in only 602 minutes for Tottenham Hotspur in 2018/19.

Abdoulaye Doucoure (WAT)

The Watford midfielder has a goal or an assist in three of his last four home matches. Doucoure's visitors, Burnley, have conceded an average of two goals per away match.

Ashley Barnes (BUR)

Burnley's run of three straight wins suggests that both sides could be in the goals at Vicarage Road this Saturday. Only three FPL forwards have bettered Barnes's seven shots on target in the last four Gameweeks.

Joel Matip (LIV)

The Cameroon international is expected to return to the heart of Liverpool's defence for their home meeting with Crystal Palace. Matip can offer a short-term option until injuries to the Reds' defensive regulars ease.

Ademola Lookman (EVE)

He caught the eye in a rare start at home to AFC Bournemouth last Sunday. Lookman supplied an assist in the 2-0 victory and should retain his place on the teamsheet as Everton make their way to Southampton.
