Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups


With a wild week 10 now behind us, it’s time to start looking ahead to week 11 and the waiver wire. There are still valuable players available on waivers that we highlight below. This week there are another four teams on BYE (Falcons, Colts, Patriots and Saints) that you will need to adjust your rosters for. Let’s now look at the top players to target this week.


Joshua Dobbs – (46.0% Owned)

Josh Dobbs continued his incredible story with another victory this past Sunday. Dobbs is now 2-0 with the Vikings and looks to be getting Justin Jefferson back this week. He is now 7th in total fantasy points for quarterbacks (179.5) between his time in Arizona and now Minnesota. He also has a plus matchup this week when the Vikings take on the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. Quarterback needy teams should prioritize grabbing Dobbs.

Running Backs

Ty Chandler – (5.9% Owned)

2nd year running back Ty Chandler filled in admirably for the injured Alexander Mattison on Sunday. Mattison left the game due to a concussion and Chandler was able to rush for 45 yards in relief. There is a good chance that Mattison misses this week’s matchup vs. the Broncos which means Chandler would be the lead back. Chandler should be the main priority on waivers this week as he has the explosive ability to take it to the house on any play. Even when Mattison comes back I like the long-term prospects of Chandler.

Wide Receivers

Brandin Cooks – (43.6% Owned)

Cooks had a monster game against the New York Giants in week 10. He totaled 173 receiving yards on 10 targets including a touchdown. The Giants defense was blasted yet again by the Cowboys but this type of performance was encouraging for Cooks. Playing him will be a gamble due to his inconsistency but Cooks has boom potential in the right matchup.

Tight Ends

Pat Freiermuth – (36.3% Owned)

Freiermuth is scheduled to come off the IR this week in time for the Steelers clash vs. the Browns. Freiermuth didn’t exactly impress before going on IR but he was dealing with a hamstring injury that slowed him down. If he is now completely healthy Freirmuth is worth stashing as he has top-10 TE ability in his game. If you’re in need of a tight end he is worth a claim.
