Fantasy Football: Week Eleven Waiver Wire Wide Receivers aka What Wide Receivers Have We Made Up?
If you have read my waiver wire wide receiver pieces, you know that I think receivers are the easiest positions to find on the waiver wire. Having said that, there are certainly receivers that might look like nice plug and play options, but really are a disaster waiting to happen. So let’s take a look at the pitfalls for waiver wire wide receiver options in week eleven.
Chester Rogers – Owned in 0% of leagues – In week ten, Chester Rogers had 6 catches for 104 yards and 1 touchdown. This leads to a very important question. Who the hell is Chester Rogers. After extensive research, I was unable to find any information about the existence of Chester Rogers. My theory is he is a manifestation of the hopes and dreams of Colts fans who thought that Donte Moncrief would be worthwhile this season and is just a hallucination. Do not burn your waiver priority on a made-up player.
Brandon LaFell – Owned in 3% of leagues – Brandon LaFell caught 6 passes for 95 yards and 1 touchdown in week eleven. If that was enough to convince you to roster Brandon LaFell, you were already going to roster Brandon LaFell. Those of us familiar with the career of Brandon LaFell know not to burn our waivers on him.
Marquise Goodwin – Owned in 15% of leagues – Marquise Goodwin had one catch for 83 yards and 1 touchdown against the New York Giants. But who hasn’t made the New York Giants look foolish this season? Still, Goodwin appears to be a focal point of the San Francisco 49ers offense with the injury to Pierre Garcon. However, I’m not sure if being a focal point in San Francisco actually helps you in terms of fantasy production. Marquise Goodwin is certainly worth monitoring, but I wouldn’t burn my waiver on him. Especially considering he is going into a bye week.
