Random working backs have been dominating the waiver wire in latest weeks, and we’d have our most random batch amongst our high Week 11 fantasy waiver wire pickups and free agent provides. The Giants’ Wayne Gallman has been a staple of this record (are you all lastly prepared to choose him up?), however Salvon Ahmed and Alex Collins had been shock leaders of their respective backfields (identical to Kalen Ballage was final week) whereas Cam Akers lastly obtained an opportunity to make good on all of his rookie promise. The long-term worth of those backs varies — as does the worth of breakout WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Jakobi Meyers, and Josh Reynolds and backup QB Jameis Winston — however they’re at the least on the pickup radar this week.
Our full free agent record is full of gamers who’re leftovers from the earlier weeks and are nonetheless price contemplating. Guys like Malcolm Brown, Rex Burkhead, Cole Beasley, Sterling Shepard, Logan Thomas, and Tua Tagovailoa can be found in at the least 50 % of Yahoo leagues, and all have sufficient upside to benefit bench spots, on the very least. We even have our traditional Week 11 streaming suggestions at QB, TE, and D/ST, which may be discovered on the finish of this record. You may also discover a new kicker or potential boyfriend with the assistance of our Week 11 kicker rankings.
It is powerful to suggest utilizing a excessive waiver declare on any of the backs talked about above. Gallman can have some near-term worth, however with the Giants on bye in Week 11, he will not be capable to assist subsequent week. Collins is probably going nothing greater than a one-week marvel with Chris Carson (foot) due again subsequent week. Ballage and Ahmed are additionally on borrowed time, however they may each be lots worthwhile for at the least another week. In case you’re determined in Week 11, they’re price greater than Gallman. It is potential a receiver like Beasley, Meyers, Shepard, or MVS has extra worth to a number of house owners, however they both have medium ceilings or, in Valdes-Scantling’s case, a low flooring.
Winston is perhaps the hardest name, as most fantasy house owners do not want a QB. Nonetheless, with the Falcons on faucet in Week 11, Winston might be a top-six QB if Drew Brees is out. Is that price a waiver declare? It might be, relying in your QB scenario.
Prime fantasy soccer waiver wire pickups for Week 11
Until in any other case famous, solely gamers owned in fewer than 50 % of Yahoo leagues thought-about.
Wayne Gallman, RB, Giants. Gallman has been working as New York’s lead again for 3 weeks now, however he is nonetheless simply 49-percent owned in Yahoo leagues. After an enormous Week 10 (18 carries, 53 yards, two TDs) and information that Devonta Freeman (ankle) will miss at the least the subsequent three video games, Gallman is poised to be a difference-maker down the stretch. He had 10 extra carries than Alfred Morris towards the Eagles, together with some key carries across the aim line, so whereas Morris can be concerned, that is clearly Gallam’s backfield. New York has a bye subsequent week, however a matchup towards Cincinnati in Week 12 can be one other likelihood for Gallman to place up large factors.
Salvon Ahmed, RB, Dolphins. Ahmed quietly led the Dolphins backfield final week, however heading into this week, many anticipated Matt Breida (hamstring), Lynn Bowden, or DeAndre Washington to be extra concerned. As an alternative, Breida remained injured and Jordan Howard and Bowden had been wholesome scratches, leaving Ahmed to dominate carries. He rushed 21 instances for 85 yards and a rating, seemingly cementing himself as Miami’s lead again till Myles Gaskin (knee) returns. After all, if Breida is again subsequent week, issues might change, however Ahmed remains to be price choosing up given his workload this week.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Packers. Fantasy house owners have been eagerly anticipating the activation of Allen Lazard (core) off the IR, but it surely seems MVS might need been the true WR2 for Inexperienced Bay all alongside. After disapointing performances early within the season, Valdes-Scantling has turned it up currently, catching two TDs in Week 9 and 4 passes for 149 yards and a TD in Week 10. Lazard can be again subsequent week — and difficult matchups towards Indianapolis and Chicago within the subsequent two weeks will restrict the worth of all non-Davante Adams WRs — however MVS has confirmed he belongs on fantasy benches as potential boom-or-bust WR3.
Jameis Winston, QB, Saints. Drew Brees took a tough hit within the second quarter on Sunday, however after ending the half, he was relegated to the sidelines within the second half. Winston got here in and accomplished six-of-10 passes for 60 yards, however extra necessary is his upcoming Week 11 matchup towards Atlanta’s 31st-ranked cross protection. If Brees remains to be out, Winston can be price beginning in all codecs, and whereas it is powerful to justify utilizing a waiver declare on it, he is perhaps price it given his excessive ceiling in that sport. Taysom Hill may even be within the combine at quarterback, however Winston would nonetheless have probably the most upside.
Kalen Ballage, RB, Chargers. Even with Troymaine Pope again, Ballage was the clear chief within the Chargers backfield in Week 10, dashing 18 instances for 68 yards and catching five-of-six targets for 34 yards. Ballage’s ascension is mildly unbelievable given how dangerous he seemed relationship again to final season, however the Chargers have clearly discovered one thing they like and Ballage ought to proceed getting a dozen-plus touches each week till Austin Ekeler (hamstring) comes again, which might be a number of weeks from now.
