Week 11 Fantasy football waiver wire pickups to make
The fantasy football waiver wire can often make or break your season. Making the right decision on which players to add and drop is crucial, so we have you set up with a deep list of potential waiver wire adds for Week 11.
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)
Mitchell Trubisky, CHI (15-30%) — He’s the No. 7 fantasy quarterback and is somehow available in 25% of leagues.
Dak Prescott, DAL (10-20%) — Since Week 6, Prescott ranks eighth among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring. His arrow is pointing up with the Cowboys offense improving.
Rashaad Penny, SEA (20-40%) — It only took 10 weeks, but Penny finally showed flashes of why he was selected in the first round of April’s draft. He may not be the clear lead back going forward, but his high ceiling is worth a roster spot for the stretch run.
Duke Johnson Jr., CLV (15-30%) — Johnson got in the end zone again last week and looks to have an expanded role under the Browns’ interim coaching regime.
Anthony Miller, CHI (20-40%) — The rookie is heating up and coming off a breakout performance in Week 10.
Austin Hooper, ATL (20-40%) — Hooper racked up 10 catches on 11 targets in Week 10.
Vance McDonald, PIT (10-20%) — McDonald is far from a consistent option, but he has continually flashed upside this season.
Regular leagues (12 teams)
Marcus Mariota, TEN (5-10%) — Mariota has looked like a completely different player over the last two weeks. He’s an intriguing upside option for the stretch run.
Malcolm Brown, LAR (5-10%) — He’s arguably the league’s top handcuff. Brown could also have value at the end of the season if the Rams decide to sit their starters.
Josh Adams, PHI (5-10%) — Adams has clearly been the Eagles best early-down runner and is going to see an expanded role going forward.
Doug Martin, OAK (5-10%) — There isn’t much to like about the Raiders offense, but Martin is running hard and is still somewhat widely available.
Donte Moncrief, JAX (5-10%) — Moncrief flashed major upside against his old team and figures to be a factor for the Jags down the stretch.
Dede Westbrook, JAX (5-10%) — He racked up nine targets last week and should continue to see volume down the stretch.
Zay Jones, BUF (5-10%) — The Bills offense finally looked competent this past week, and Jones led the charge.
Josh Doctson, WAS (5-10%) — Doctson got in the end zone last week and will continue to be a red-zone asset for the Redskins.
Jonnu Smith, TEN (3-5%) — With the Titans offense surging, Smith deserves consideration if you’re hard up at tight end.
Deep leagues (14-plus teams)
Jacquizz Rodgers, TB (1%) — Don’t expect Rodgers to post another 100-yard game any time soon, but do expect him to continue to be involved in the passing game going forward.
Robert Foster, BUF (1%) — Those in deeper leagues may want to take a look at Foster after the first-year wideout out of Alabama topped 100 yards on three catches in Week 10.
Ricky Seals-Jones, ARZ (1%) — The second-year man saw nine targets last week, catching 5 for 51 yards.
DST streamers for Week 11
Arizona Cardinals, ARZ (1%) — The Cardinals are this week’s top DST add with an extremely favorable matchup on tap against the Raiders. Over the last two weeks, Oakland has surrendered a whopping 12 sacks.
Carolina Panthers, CAR (1%) — Carolina is available in nearly half of leagues and gets to face a Lions team that has allowed 19 sacks and 7 turnovers over their last three games.
