Week 11- Waivers Edition

November 12, 2018

 

My waiver additions are based off of 10-man leagues. I use the average ESPN percentages and stats to supply the information I use within my waiver additions. Some of the players listed may be taken in your league, but I will go in depth to add deep waiver additions as well. I broke it down by position, listing it by the most value at the top leading to the least value at the bottom. I will try not to list players from week to week but there are no promises. As we go week to week, the waivers will become more and more barren. Make sure you make your waivers count, as they are what help you build a winning team. Players from last week that would still be solid waiver pickups if they are available: Mike Davis, Nick Vannett, Jeff Heuerman and Nick Mullens (writing this before the Monday night game).

 

Quarterbacks

 

 

Marcus Mariota, QB- Tennessee Titans- 15.5% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: IND, HOU, NYJ

In the first half of the season, Mariota was a fantasy dud. Over the last two games, he looks like he is back to his old form. Mariota has a decent upcoming schedule as well, as he faces a Colts defense that was just thrashed by the Jacksonville Jaguars. If you are dealing with a bye, or want a solid streamer Mariota has a chance to post QB1 numbers again this week.

 

 

Dak Prescott, QB- Dallas Cowboys- 30.2% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: ATL, WSH, NO

Prescott is back. After spending most of the year on everyone’s waivers, Prescott looks to be a solid add for the immediate future. He faces a weak Atlanta Defense this week that was just beat by Baker Mayfield and the Browns. If you are in a tight spot and are looking for some upside, Prescott is a decent streamer this week.

 

 

Blake Bortles, QB- Jacksonville Jaguars- 20.4% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: PIT, BUF, IND

Blake Bortles, the boom or bust of quarterbacks. He is back again, two weeks in a row in fact. Blake has a solid matchup this week against a Pittsburgh defense that was being beat before this previous matchup. With Fournette back, Bortles should continue to move the ball. Making him a decent streamer for the last of the bye weeks.

 

 

Running Backs

 

 

Rashaad Penny, RB- Seattle Seahawks- 13% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: GB, CAR, SF

After being called a bust, Penny looked like what he was supposed to be all along this past Sunday. With Chris Carson injured, Penny might finally have the chance to take the reins and lead the Seattle backfield. Right now I value Penny as a flex/ bye week fill in. He does have the potential to be much more, if utilized correctly.

 

 

Frank Gore, RB- Miami Dolphins- 33% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: BYE, IND, BUF, NE

Frank the tank. Gore seems to never age, and when he gets the carries he gets the yards. Kenyan Drake was injured in this past game, and there is no definite knowledge on how bad it is. The Dolphins have a bye week, but depending on how serious Drake’s injury is, Gore could be a sneaky add for the future weeks.

 

 

Jaylen Samuels, RB- Pittsburgh Steelers- 0.2% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: JAX, DEN, LAC

Samuels is a deep league add, or for those who like handcuffs. Actually he could have value in all leagues this week as Le’veon Bell is not expected back and James Conner is dealing with a concussion. If Conner is out this week, Samuels is a high end flex with upside.

 

 

 

 

Wide Receivers

 

 

Anthony Miller, WR- Chicago Bears- 13.3% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: MIN, DET, NYG

Anthony Miller, the offseason stud for the Chicago Bears is finally making waves during the season. Beating out Taylor Gabriel for targets, and now finding the end zone. If you are needing wide receiver depth Miller is my choice for pure upside. Miller has the ability to be a solid bye week fill in/ flex play for the rest of the season.  

 

 

Donte Montcrief, WR- Jacksonville Jaguars- 15.3% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: PIT, BUF, IND

Usually when I write about Bortles, I find myself writing about Montcrief. He has been a solid flex play for most of the year, and then has explosion games where he performs as a WR1/WR2. If you are in need for a high upside play/ with a decent floor Montcrief is your guy. He is a solid bye week fill in for this upcoming week against the Steelers.

 

 

Josh Doctson, WR- Washington Redskins- 16.8 % Owned

Upcoming Schedule: HOU, DAL, PHI

The Redskins have not been performing as well fantasy wise like I would expect. But one guy who has been doing well over the last two weeks has been Doctson. He is getting the red zone looks and his target share has been increasing. Doctson is a wait and see. But if the waivers are bare, and he is there. He is a solid add for those who are desperate and need depth.

 

Tight Ends   

At a position that has such a large fluctuation of points scored, any type of solid production is always acknowledged.

 

 

Jonnu Smith, TE- Tennessee Titans- 0.6% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: IND, HOU, NYJ

Smith has finally emerged for the Tennessee Titan. After Delanie had went down, everyone Jonnu to be able to come right in and do the same as Walker. That was not the case, one because he was just getting his feet wet and the Titans were not performing well at the time. Smith has the ability to be a TE1 if he continues to have an uptick of usage and red zone targets. He is a solid add for those who need a tight end, which is almost everyone with Kelce, and Ertz.

 

 

Mo Allie Cox, TE- Indianapolis Colts- 0% Owned

Upcoming Schedule: TEN, MIA, JAX

Owned in zero percent of the league, but has outscored the likes of David Enjoku, and Rob Gronkowski over the last two weeks. Cox is a risky play but how big is the difference between what most tight ends get and zero. If you are looking for a roll of the dice and a touchdown score, Cox is my add this week against the Titans defense.
