The Waiver Wire pickups from week 10 were good with Mike Goodson and Mike Thomas this week. In terms of Sidney Rice, expect him to be in the lineup this week versus the Packers. When I start looking at waiver wire pickups for week 11, I have to start thinking about the playoffs, as well as the fact there are no more bye weeks. Here are the waiver wire pickups for week 11.
Waiver Wire: Tyler Thigpen, QB, Miami Dolphins- With the “Chad’s” going down with injuries in the game versus the Titans, Thigpen could end up being the man quarterbacking a team with Davone Bess and Brandon Marshall for a few week, which to me means he definitely could be worthy of a QB spot if your teams need that sort of addition.
Waiver Wire: Mike Thomas [Again….], WR, Jacksonville Jaguars- Thomas has caught 12 passes for 190 yards and 2 TD in his last 2 games, and will continue to produce these numbers next week versus the Browns. With most defenders worrying about Mike Sims-Walker, Thomas usually ends up getting enough looks from Garrard to make his fantasy worth very notable.
Waiver Wire: Mike Jenkins, WR, Atlanta Falcons- Jenkins was injured for the first 5 games of the year and is just getting back into football shape and caught 4 passes for 48 yards this week versus the Ravens and will continue to show his worth with defenders taking notice to Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez in the passing game.
Waiver Wire: Danny Amendola, WR, St. Louis Rams- Going into week 10, Amendola was tied for the NFL lead in 3rd down receptions with 17 and will continue to have that kind of success because of the trust Sam Bradford has in this slot, Wes Welker-type receiver. Amendola consistently gets targeted between 7-9 times a game and is a fantasy worthy receiver for the rest of the year.
Waiver Wire: Jason Campbell, QB, Oakland Raiders - Raiders coach Tom Cable formally named Jason Campbell the team's starting quarterback at Monday's press conference. Campbell isn't lighting the field on fire (5 TD and 1 INT in last 3 starts) but if you're in need of a QB Campbell is now the "starter" in Oakland and worth a slot on your roster
Waiver Wire: Troy Smith, QB, 49's - 116.6, thats Troy's QB rating since his start in week 8. With a TD on no INT's in each of his last two games Smith has managed to win over the coaches and his team leading them to two straight victories. Worth a slot if you need a QB in deep leagues.
Waiver Wire: St. Louis Rams Defense- I am only saying this because of how awful they have been in previous season. If you are looking for a defense and the Rams are available in your league, I think they are definitely worth a spot on your roster. Allowing the sixth lowest points per game at 18.2 and tied for third in forced fumbles with 19 the Rams are quietly putting together a solid defensive effort. Oh did I mention they're tied for 1st in the NFL with 28 sacks and only 15% owned in yahoo leagues!
