FAAB Week 11: Just the FAAB’s, Ma’am

We’ve changed things up for FAAB week 11: All the potential waiver wire steals are listed. If you don’t see a player here, he is either owned in too many leagues (~50%) or he is worth zero. Feel free to ask about specific players in the comments. 

FAAB Week 11

Quarterback FAAB (%) Notes
Case Keenum 1 Good matchups week 12 and 13, but Bridgewater could be back by then
Jay Cutler 1 Soft matchup this week (TB), but every other opponent is strong ROS
Blake Bortles 1 People forget he’s a great fantasy QB every year. Soft schedule ROS, except for a Week 14 tilt against Seattle. WR core is annihilated, however
Ryan Fitzpatrick 2 A serviceable backup this week against Miami. Could gel with that offense and be a smash hit ROS, because TB would be dumb to bring Winston back this season
Brett Hundley 0 Not a good pickup this week(BAL), but consider grabbing him out of FA for TB-Cle weeks 14-15
Running Back FAAB (%) Notes
Lactavius Murray 51 If he’s on your waiver wire and you see him on your waiver wire, don’t be alarmed when you start lactating uncontrollably.  This might be your last chance to get a 15+ carry-per-game guy on a decent offense
Rex Burkhead 1 The New England RB lottery tickets should always cost 1%
Dion Lewis 5 No longer a lottery ticket, as he’s scored 5 or more in HPPR his last 6 games
Samaje Perine 5 If you need a 1-2 week fill-in, he’s good. Not a ROS play, though, as Rob Kelley should return
Jamaal Williams 26 Might pan out to nothing, but could be the lead back on an offense that is growing stronger
Austin Ekeler 1 Despite strong performance, his fumble cost SD the game.
Wide Receiver FAAB (%) Notes
Jamison Crowder 10 Seems to be coming around to preseason expectations. Far from a sure thing, however
Corey Davis 18 Almost had a touchdown, but fumbled. 10 targets in the last game
Chester Rogers 0 On a bye week, playing for the Colts. Hard to get behind this guy, despite 6 catches last week
Marquis Goodwin 0 On a bye, too hot and cold to make a reliable plug-and-play option
Tight End FAAB (%) Notes
Charles Clay 0 Still injured a bit, tough matchup. Wait.
Garrett Celek 0 Tempting, until you realize he will sit on your bench both this week (bye) and next (SEA)
Jermaine Gresham 2 A killer one-week play. Stanton has hit him in the red zone in both his starts, and they play a woeful Houston secondary this week
