Would mounting a Raked wingtip on a Short haul B737 serve the purpose considering Fuel economy.

Yes, especially for the aircraft flying longer sectors... but the wingspan cannot extend beyond the maximum for code C aircraft of 36 meters, so scimitars and now MAX winglets are the compromise.

It's not necessarily a matter of not wanting to wait for stairs, but some fields might not have any at all... or only one, in which case they could then go to the back door to allow dual boarding. Of all airlines, FR definitely would not get this optional equipment if they didn't see a need for it.
