Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Pickups for Week 11

Waiver Wire

Week 10 of the 2020 Fantasy Football season is in the books; every weekly matchup is magnified. Which means every roster transaction you make is that much more essential. Take to the waiver wire and keep churning that roster.

These are players that are owned in less than 50% of Yahoo leagues.

Add these Quarterbacks via Waiver Wire

Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints

Look who’s back to fantasy relevancy. An injury to Drew Brees makes Jameis a must add in 2 QB and Super Flex leagues. Not only does Winston get a chance to lead the high powered Saints offense; but he also gets to go up against a familiar foe this week, the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons defense has improved a tad bit since starting the season 0-5. However, Jameis has had many big games against them in the past and I believe he will again in Week 11. He is a plug and play QB if you are in need.

Teddy Bridgewater, Carolina Panthers

Rinse and Repeat. He didn’t put up big numbers against a good Buccaneers defense, but he was efficient as usual. Look for him to rebound against the Lions if he plays. Pay close attention to the injury report as Teddy has a mild MCL sprain.

Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

Another rinse and repeat here. I saw more RPO in the Dolphins offense. Once Tua gets more comfortable with the NFL speed watch out as his accuracy is pinpoint.

Add these Running Backs

Waiver Wire

Salvon Ahmed, Miami Dolphins

So it wasn’t Matt Breida last week as he continues to miss games due to his hamstring injury. Jordan Howard was recently waived and Myles Gaskin is on Injured Reserve. The lucky winner is Salvon Ahmed. I liked his tape at Washington and the rookie will have an opportunity going forward to showcase his talent. He received 84% of the Dolphins carries in Week 10 and produced 85 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts

Hines makes another appearance in the Waiver Wire column. After recommending him in Week 2, Hines has been a huge miss until recently. Hines racked up 115 total yards and 2 touchdowns last week and looks to be the Colts best option in the backfield at this time. I am not all the way bullish on him as the Colts can revert back to Jonathan Taylor or Jordan Wilkins; but he’s a speculative add while he’s hot.

Kalen Ballage, Los Angeles Chargers

Ballage continues to work as the Chargers RB1 with the injuries to Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson. He produced this past Sunday with 68 yards on 18 carries and caught five of his six targets for 34 additional yards. Continue to ride him if you are in need.

Add these Wide Receivers via Waiver Wire

Waiver Wire

Allen Lazard, Green Bay Packers

Lazard was just activated from the IR so he more than likely will be back in the Packers lineup in Week 11. Marquez Valdes-Scantling has been balling of late, but with Lazard back, that can easily be him in the upcoming weeks.

Denzel Mims, New York Jets

Mims is still an add for me. After the Jets bye week some may have forgotten to add him. I like his and teammate Breshad Perriman’s fantasy prospects moving forward. The Jets should be playing from behind a lot, therefore it’s not a bad idea to target their talented young receiver.

Jakobi Meyers, New England Patriots

Cam Newton has found his favorite receiver in the offense in Jakobi Meyers. Meyers has 31 targets over the last three weeks and continues to be the only reliable option for Newton. Grab him now especially in PPR formats.

Other Wide Receivers I’m Buying on the Waiver Wire –

  • Michael Pittman Jr, Indianapolis Colts
  • Keelan Cole, Jacksonville Jaguars

Add these Tight Ends

Jordan Reed, San Francisco 49ers

George Kittle is still out and the 49ers desperately need Reed to step up more in the offense. After playing sparingly in his return in Week 9, Reed stepped up in Week 10 with 6 targets, 5 receptions, and 62 yards. He also ran more passing routes than Ross Dwelley making him the receiving tight end option until Kittle gets back.

Logan Thomas, Washington Redskins

It is getting to be desperate times for fantasy tight ends. Thomas has talent and continues to be one of the leaders in tight end pass routes ran. He may not produce consistently but he is getting an opportunity in the passing game.
