Stop using your precious clicks on five different positional week eleven waiver wire articles. Football Absurdity’s Waleed Ismail has all your waiver wire needs on one page!
Week eleven of the 2019 NFL season is in the books and you’ve made every mistake a man can make. You thought the 49ers were unbeatable… and you were wrong. You believed the Dolphins were incapable of going on a winning streak…. And you were wrong. You thought fantasy football was fun….and boy, were you wrong. You and your team have utterly failed in week nine. Lucky for you, there are waiver wire options to save you from yourself. If I don’t mention someone whom you think I should be talking about, just know there are many reasons why I overlooked them. Maybe they are owned in most leagues, maybe they are so bad I don’t even consider them. Maybe it’s because your opinions cannot be trusted. After all, you are here. So let us examine what our best week eleven waiver wire players for your championship run are…
Week 11 Waiver Wire QBs
Should I Pick up Derek Carr? – Owned in 41% of leagues – Somehow, Derek Carr is still available on the waiver wire. While he had a down week ten, he has been a consistent low-end QB1 for a while now. In the next two weeks, Carr will face the Bengals and the Jets. That means, over the next two weeks, you want Derek Carr on your roster.
Should I Pick up Sam Darnold? – Owned in 21% of leagues – I really don’t know what to say about Sam Darnold. In week ten, Darnold had a top-ten fantasy performance against the Giants, but it probably wasn’t as good as it should have been, considering the opponent. Nobody has an easier schedule the rest of the way than Sam Darnold, but that may not be enough.
Week 11 Waiver Wire RBs
Should I Pick up Brian Hill? – Owned in 3% of leagues – Devonta Freeman is expected to miss a couple of weeks with a sprained foot. With Ito Smith on injured reserve, Brian Hill is the next man up. If you need running back help, he should be your number one waiver priority for week eleven. It is unlikely another volume play at running back becomes available.
Should I Pick up Derrius Guice? – Owned in 38% of leagues – With Washington coming off the bye and Derrius Guice coming off injured reserve, you might want to consider grabbing Guice off of waivers. While Washington is where offense goes to die, Guice is probably the most talented running back you will be able to roster from free agency. Of course, in two weeks, he’ll probably end up back on I.R.
Week 11 Waiver Wire WRs
Should I Pick up Deebo Samuel? – Owned in 15% of leagues – We all saw what the 49ers offense looked like without George Kittle and without Emmanuel Sanders. It was Deebo Samuel and various piles of disappointment in multiple shapes and sizes. Samuel and 11 targets on Monday Night Football, making for 18 in his last two games. Samuel is a priority pickup, especially in PPR leagues, as he goes into a top-ten matchup, at home, against the Cardinals.
Should I Pick up Darius Slayton? – Owned in 14% of leagues – Daniel Jones seems to really like Darius Slayton and with Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard missing extended periods of time, you might want to start liking Darius Slayton too. In week ten, Slayton saw a whopping 14 targets. An emerging threat on an offense that is going to spend a lot of its time playing from behind is someone worth rostering.
Should I Pick up Demaryius Thomas? – Owned in 6% of leagues – Demaryius Thomas had his best game of the season against the Giants. He also has the pedigree of a former fantasy football stud. None of this changes the fact that he is an old, inconsistent fantasy player who plays on the Jets.
Week 11 Waiver Wire TEs
Should I Pick up Kyle Rudolph? – Owned in 35% of leagues – With four touchdowns in the last four games, Kyle Rudolph has become an integral part of the Vikings offense. Over the past four weeks, Rudolph has also been a top-five fantasy football tight end. Basically, if you need a tight end, you need to roster Rudolph.
Should I Pick up O.J. Howard? – Owned in 42% of leagues – All season, O.J. Howard owners have been waiting for the performance he gave in week ten. Finally a touchdown! Does this mean that it is worth grabbing Howard off of waivers? Considering he won’t be playing a Cardinals team that has given up the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, he probably isn’t worth it.
