Week 11 NFL Streamers
My weekly lineup recommendations from the waiver wire are based on players rostered in less than 50% of leagues and half-point PPR scoring.
Teams on a bye this week are: Los Angeles Rams, Denver Broncos
These quarterbacks have match ups against the worst defenses for fantasy points per game and passing yards allowed:
Cam Newton, Panthers v. Washington (Yahoo 17%, ESPN 12%, Sleeper 27%)
Expected to take over starting duties in Carolina against Washington who is giving up the most fantasy points per game to QBs in 2021.
Justin Fields, Bears v. Ravens (Yahoo 25%, ESPN 18%, Sleeper 38%)
Fields has run the ball at least 8 times in each of the last 3 games netting 38, 103, and 45 yards providing a few bonus points. Plus the Ravens are allowing the most passing yards per game this season (298.56).
These QBs are widely available and are playing in decent match ups or game scripts on the road. However, they have had a wide distribution of outcomes so I have trust issues with them. But if you are desperate they are worth a shot:
Daniel Jones, Giants @ Buccaneers (Yahoo 30%, ESPN 30%, Sleeper 34%)
Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins @ Jets (Yahoo 23%, ESPN 35%, Sleeper 33%)
Mac Jones, Patriots @ Falcons (Yahoo 29%, ESPN 14%, Sleeper 37%)
Rhamondre Stevenson, Patriots @ Falcons (Yahoo 33%, ESPN 28%, Sleeper 40%)
Start if Damien Harris is sidelined again and hope to see what happened in Week 10 v. Bill Belichick completely changing up the game plan and giving someone else 20+ touches.
D’Onta Foreman, Titans v. Texans (Yahoo 5%, ESPN 1%, Sleeper 5%)
Snaps and carries seem to be trending towards Foreman and away from Adrian Peterson.
Wayne Gallman Jr., Falcons v. Patriots (Yahoo 1%, ESPN 1%, Sleeper 4%)
With Cordarrelle Patterson likely missing time after injuring his ankle and Mike Davis falling out of favor, Gallman’s usage should increase in Week 11.
Darnell Mooney, Bears v. Ravens (Yahoo 46%, ESPN 45%, Sleeper 57%)
Play these if (insert injured receiver’s name) is out in Week 11 allowing (receiver available on the waiver wire) to see more snaps and targets
Kadarius Toney, Giants @ Buccaneers (Yahoo 46%, ESPN 42%, Sleeper 59%)
Rashod Bateman, Ravens @ Bears (Yahoo 50%, ESPN 31%, Sleeper 64%)
Gabriel Davis, Bills v. Colts (Yahoo 2%, ESPN 3%, Sleeper 10%)
Quez Watkins, Eagles v. Saints (Yahoo 1%, ESPN 2%, Sleeper 5%)
Dan Arnold, Jaguars v. 49ers (Yahoo 27%, ESPN 27%, Sleeper 36%)
Tight End #6 over the last 4 weeks averaging 5.7 catches per game and 65 yards.
Tyler Conklin, Vikings v. Packers (Yahoo 30%, ESPN 37%, Sleeper 29%)
Conklin is an every down player in Minnesota and opportunity means TD potential a la the 2 he snagged in week 10.
49ers @ Jaguars (Yahoo 48%, ESPN 48%, Sleeper 37%)
Carolina v. Washington (Yahoo 30%, ESPN 48%, Sleeper 25%)
Eagles v. Saints (Yahoo 11%, ESPN 11%, Sleeper 7%)
Randy Bullock, Titans v. Texans (Yahoo 22%, ESPN 31%, Sleeper 15%)
Chase McLaughlin, Browns v. Lions (Yahoo 19%, ESPN 18%, Sleeper 11%)
Questions, comments, and other feedback is always welcome. Follow me on twitter @b_muell for my mildly depressing -- occasionally delusional -- Washington (RedWolves?), O’s, Caps and Terps takes.
