Week 11 Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

TheMethodFantasy




Jamaal Williams

RB Aaron Jones has been ruled out 3-6 Weeks and RB Ty Montgomery continues to be hampered by lingering rib issues, leaving his status unknown for Week 11. In their absence, Williams rumbled for 67 Rushing Yards, 7 Receiving Yards and 1 TD on 20 Attempts against a gritty Chicago Defense. Williams sits atop this week’s waiver wire selection as he is submerged into the feature role in Green Bay.

Danny Woodhead

The Ravens are “not sure” if Danny Woodhead (hamstring) will be ready to play in Week 11. This is a tough one to predict and is plastered with speculation. In PPR Leagues, Woodhead is a no-doubt addition and worth the risk of rostering.

Austin Ekeler

Despite a late fumble that casted a dark shadow over Ekeler’s performance, the Rookie RB totaled 42 Rushing Yards, 77 Receiving Yards and 2 TDs against Jacksonville. Ekeler saw 15 touches to Melvin Gordon’s 21 and has officially passed RB Branden Oliver on the depth chart. San Diego turned back to Gordon in OT after Ekeler’s costly fumble in the 4th Quarter, but Ekeler is a no-doubt addition and has carved out a Danny Woodhead like role for himself going forward and should be a solid asset for the franchise in the future.

Elijah McGuire

According to ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini, “there is concern” about Matt Forte’s (knee) health “going forward.” The snap split was even in New York with McGuire receiving 36 of 69 snaps, whereas Powell totaled 33 of 69 snaps. With Forte expected to miss multiple weeks, McGuire should be owned in all leagues as New York implemented a full RBBC instead of giving Powell the reigns to the running attack.

Samaje Perine

Redskins HC Jay Gruden confirmed Rob Kelley (ankle, knee) will miss “multiple games” with a High-Ankle-Sprain and MCL Sprain. This has been a consistent narrative in Washington all season and Perine has had opportunity-after-opportunity to literally run with this job, but he has yet to do so. Consider Perine a low floor, low ceiling player going forward, but he should receive enough volume to be considered a top pick-up for teams struggling at the position with many holes in the boat.

Corey Coleman

Browns HC Hue Jackson said Monday that Corey Coleman (hand) will be “all systems go” in Week 11, however he will return against one of the best pass defenses in the NFL … Jacksonville. Cleveland is desperate for weapons and Coleman should immediately be immersed back into heavy usage, so consider this a shot in the arm type pick-up for your team. Coleman should be one of your top pick-ups for this week, but don’t plan to use him for Week 11! Jacksonville is going to dismantle Cleveland this week. It’s going to be interesting!

Charles Clay

Clay disappointed in his first game back and we would be leery in rolling him out there until he shows stability. He is worth the addition, but temper your expectations.

Greg Olsen

Out of all the names on this list, Olsen may provide the heaviest punch for a playoff run if you are struggling at the position. He is scheduled to return after Carolina’s Week 11 Bye. We heavily recommend a stash here if still available.
