Wide receiver remains very deep this season, with week 11 seeing big performances from lesser owned commodities. The stars are still performing on a weekly basis of course, but if you are not lucky enough to have one of them on your roster, there is help to be found. Check out this week’s waiver wire picks and grab someone to help propel your team to the playoffs.
Week 10 Recommendations Results (Standard League Scoring)
· Rishard Matthews TEN – 3 receptions 63 yards 1 touchdown 12 Fantasy Points
· Eli Rogers PIT – 4 receptions 42 yards 1 touchdown 10 Fantasy Points
· Marquise Lee JAC – 4 receptions 50 yards 5 Fantasy Points
· Taylor Gabriel (watch) – 1 reception 76 yards 1 touchdown 13 Fantasy Points
It seems like at this point Matthews is a reliable WR2 in most leagues. He does not always have the highest volume on his team, but he is always right near the top. Eli Rogers had a second productive week in a row and seems to have his quarterback’s trust. Marquise Lee is reliably mediocre, but in PPR he is a borderline flex. Taylor Gabriel only had one catch in week 10, but he sure did make it count.
Week 11 Waiver Wire Picks
Tyreek Hill KC 9.9% owned
Don’t look now, but Hill has scored double digit fantasy points in four of his last six games. The speedy Hill is the only big play threat on the Chiefs roster and he is finally being utilized as such. Week 10 saw Hill make 10 catches for 89 yards and he added a 12 yard carry. If this usage continues, Hill is nearly a sure thing to put up big numbers on a weekly basis. He is out there in just about every league, so go grab this guy before the window of opportunity closes.
Breshad Perriman BAL 2% owned
This was an easy matchup and the Ravens threw a lot, but still encouraging. The Ravens know that they need to get Perriman involved in their offense. He represents a serious big play threat and along with Mike Wallace could really stretch the field. Baltimore is looking to incorporate young difference makers like Perriman and Kenneth Dixon, which should show over the coming weeks. There is a boom or bust feel to Perriman, but when he goes off the results should be dramatic.
Get Him Back
Cameron Meredith CHI 20.3% owned
Meredith was a popular waiver pickup earlier in the season, but he has since fallen off the radar. It is time to go back to the well now, because Alshon Jeffery was just hit with a four week suspension for PED use. This news is very fresh, so head to the wire before the rest of your league hears about it. The Bears have shown the ability to force feed targets to Meredith in the absence of Jeffery and it should happen again now.
Eli Rogers PIT 20.9% owned
The Steelers run hot and cold when it comes to targeting Rogers, but he is on the upswing. The yellow and black are seeing injuries pile up and Rogers should be one of the beneficiaries. Darius Heyward-Bey and Markus Wheaton are both hurt, which should mean Rogers is going to be on the field a lot. The next two weeks bring matchups with Cleveland and Indianapolis and I like Rogers’ chances of continuing his streak of double digit fantasy points.
