The Week 11 Waiver Wire Quarterbacks article sees some of the same faces as last week, but a familiar one as well. Viable quarterbacks who take over as the starter are hard to come by when it comes to fantasy football. There aren't many Colin Kaepernick's of the world anymore. But hopefully these guys can strengthen up your roster with playoffs right around the corner.

Ryan Fitzpatrick - Titans (Owned Percentage – ESPN .5%/Yahoo 2%)
If early news is true, Jake Locker could be lost for the season after suffering a possible Lisfranc injury against the Jaguars Sunday. Locker didn't get much in the way of stats, completing only 4 passes. Once Fitzpatrick came in, he looked like an All-Pro. Fitz threw for 269 passing yards and 2 scores once on the field. Temper expectations since this was against the Jaguars. Fitz is nothing more than a low-end QB2. Always was, but he's someone to consider if you can use the quarterback in your flex spot.
Nick Foles - Eagles (Owned Percentage – ESPN 45.4%/Yahoo 66%)
As you can see by the percentage-owned numbers, not many owners believed Foles could continue his abilities as a QB1. While he didn't have the magic he had against the Raiders last weekend, he still put up big numbers against the Packers. Foles only completed 12 passes, but those passes went for 228 yards, 3 scores and, once again, no picks. Fole's performance on the field wasn't great as a few passes looked pretty bad, but it's the stats that count. Now that Foles has a firm grip on the starting job, expect him to be a QB1 again as he faces another good matchup against the Redskins in Week 11.
Case Keenum - Texans (Owned Percentage – ESPN 9.4%/Yahoo 28%)
After putting up solid stats in back-to-back games, it's a bit of a shock to see Keenum owned in such a small amount of leagues. Keenum didn't pass for many yards, 201, but his 3 touchdowns padded the stat box against the Cardinals. The thing with Keenum is he starts off fast, but then slows down in the second half for whatever reason. However, he is still a must pickup. Stats are stats. Whether he's hot in the first half or second, owners will want to make Keenum a top priority if there is desperate need at the quarterback position on their squad.
Kellen Clemens - Rams (Owned Percentage – ESPN .4%/Yahoo 2%)
While I list Clemens, I wouldn't trample my way over others to grab him. Not unless you're in deeper leagues. Clemens passed for 247 yards and 2 scores in a surprise win over the Colts. Although most of his day was feeding Zac Stacy the ball. The Rams have a bye coming up, so Clemens is only worth picking up in the deepest of leagues. He's a game manager, not a game changer.
Scott Tolzien - Packers (Owned Percentage – ESPN 0%/Yahoo 0%)
Tolzien isn't exactly a name that's been brought up in fantasy circles. But because of injuries to both Aaron Rodgers and now Seneca Wallace, Tolzien is now expected to make his first start against the Giants. Subbing in for Wallace, who suffered a groin injury, Tolzien completed 24 passes for 280 yards, 1 score and 2 interceptions against the Eagles. Like Clemens, Tolzien isn't someone I'd clamor for, despite the matchup against the Giants, but he can still be a low-end QB2 until one of the other quarterbacks is healthy enough to regain the starting job.
