Three weeks remain until the fantasy football playoffs, so it’s time to load up on upside on the Week 11 waiver wire.
Remember, we cast a wide net every week in our waiver wire advice. Below you’ll see recommendations for shallow, regular, and deep leagues. Players are listed in order of priority and the suggested auction budget percentage is in parentheses.
Keep in mind that some leagues may be more aggressive or conservative in terms of bidding, so know your league tendencies. Regardless of the size of your league, it’s suggested that you work your way down the list and prioritize the top players in your waiver claims for this week.
Shallow leagues (8-10 teams)
Philip Rivers, LAC (8-15%) — Rivers is available in 43 percent of leagues and could offer some help down the stretch. Be advised that he is currently in the concussion protocol.
Danny Woodhead, BAL (20-40%) — The veteran running back is set to return this week and is still available in 60 percent of leagues.
Kenyan Drake, MIA (15-30%) — There’s a committee in the Miami backfield, but Drake is clearly the better fantasy option. He racked up 82 yards and a score on just eight carries on Monday night.
Corey Davis, TEN (20-40%) — Davis saw double-digit targets in Week 10 and is still available in 66 percent of leagues.
Jamison Crowder, WAS (15-30%) — He returned to the field last week and has seen 21 targets over his last two games.
Greg Olsen, CAR (20-40%) — Olsen is eligible for return in Week 12 and is still available in 49 percent of leagues.
