FPL Draft: Pick Samatta over Ighalo

The players who arrived at the end of the January transfer window are available this week on Fantasy Premier League Draft waivers.

With significant new signings at Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Sheffield United, West Ham United and Aston Villa, there's a lot to sift through.

Here are my waiver priorities by position with a focus on the influx of midfielders who could make an impact.

GKP: Pepe Reina (AVL)

There weren't many new arrivals on the goalkeeping front and we really don't know what's going on at Chelsea beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga's benching last week. Given Villa's struggles this season, I might be more inclined to overlook Reina and dive in on Bernd Leno, as Arsenal have become much tighter at the back even before their new defensive recruits arrive.

DEF: Pablo Mari (ARS)

It remains to be seen how quickly the Spaniard can secure a regular role at the back for Arsenal. Elsewhere, Willy Boly is back from injury for Wolverhampton Wanderers and their run-in is pretty favourable.

MID: Steven Bergwijn (TOT)

Tottenham Hotspur's Bergwijn took the early lead over Manchester United new boy Bruno Fernandes after his gorgeous goal against Manchester City last weekend. Fernandes looked excellent as well but couldn't convert his five shots. Also, don't sleep on West Ham's Tomas Soucek or Newcastle's Nabil Bentaleb as alternatives if you don't have one of the first couple of waiver claims. Both had excellent debuts with great underlying statistics in the form of chances created.
