Week 11 waiver wire adds
Trade dead lines are coming up fast, and while players who you should target to help you win out is another story. I’m here to help you make moves on your roster whether you’re pushing for a playoff spot or simply trying to add depth. None of these are in any particular order.
Week 11 Waiver Wire
C.J. Prosise (RB) Seattle
C.J. Prosise has been mentioned before over these last few weeks in my column. If you were patient enough hopefully you already have him stashed. With Michael on the way out of Seattle, and Rawls coming back into the lineup soon, Prosise is an up-and-coming rookie star already making noise, especially in PPR formats.
James Starks (RB) Green Bay
In fantasy football you’ll never get tired of searching for a running back. Starks isn’t the stud name he once was, but Sunday proved that he’s going to be a part of this offense going forward. He didn’t have a big game on the ground, but will look to get more carries as the Packers ease him back into action.
Kenneth Dixon (RB) Baltimore
Terrance West remains the #1 guy as of yet in Baltimore, but Dixon isn’t too far when it comes to carries. West has had some games earlier in the season where he looked promising, but has struggled producing yardage with his carries given. Each week Dixon is given more reps and is a strong asset as a pass catching back in PPR formats.
Dion Lewis (RB) New England
Lewis hasn’t played since last season, but has finally been activated to the Patriots 53-man roster. Sure James White and Blount aren’t going anywhere, but Lewis is too much of a talented back to leave looming on the waiver.
Jeremy Langford (RB) Chicago
Right now the RB situation in Chicago is a bit cloudy. It appears that Jordan Howard suffered an injury in week 10, but declined any information when asked by the media. However John Fox did say he was dealing with an Achilles/ankle issue, and his status for week 11 is uncertain at the moment. Langford could start seeing more reps over Ka’Deem Carey if Howard misses some time.
Rishard Matthews (WR) Tennessee
Matthews isn’t the first name of stud wide receivers when you scroll through on the waivers, but the past five weeks he’s been the go-to-guy in Tennessee. His yardage isn’t through the roof, but the targets and touchdowns are there. Matthews is a good flex add, and depth if your dealing with injuries/bye weeks issues.
Cameron Meredith (WR) Chicago
Earlier in the season Meredith had a lot of fantasy owners happy with his huge outing early on out of nowhere, then he simply just faded away leaving everybody with question marks once Jay Cutler returned to the line up. But now that Alshon Jeffrey is suspended for four games Meredith looks to return to fantasy glory as he slides into the wr 1 for Chicago.
Cameron Brate (TE) Tampa Bay
Pretty much in the league there’s about five good TE’s that you can depend on week in and week out, and if you don’t have a Gronk, Olsen, Reed etc. more than likely you’re streaming matchups or rostering two TE’s. Brate is a solid streaming option, his targets have been there, and he produces when given the chance.
Tyreek Hill (WR) Kansas City
Here’s another guy who’s made the column in the past. With Maclin out, Hill slides into the WR1 spot for KC. He reeled in 10 catches on 13 targets in week 10, and should make fantasy owners happy in PPR leagues.
Eli Rogers (WR) Pittsburgh
Sammie Coates was the WR2 behind Brown in the Pittsburgh, but Coates suffered a gruesome injury dislocating multiple fingers in week 10. With Coates banged up Rogers will see more targets thrown his way in an offense that’s already explosive.
