Waiver Wire Focus: Week 11

Christmas sucks. If you are a Christian, the meaning behind it is nice and meaningful, but the holiday that it has been made into… plain out sucks. The whole buying gifts, expecting gifts, awkwardly giving and receiving those gifts. It’s all a pain in the ass.

Thanksgiving is 10x better than Christmas. Everyone gets together to eat and watch football. That’s it. No pretentious gift giving. No acting like you love the shitty Tommy Hilfiger polo from your Aunt Janice. 

Everyone is just there to enjoy each other. And that’s a beautiful thing.

Know what else is beautiful? Waiver wire grabs that help lead you to the promise land. They may not be not free, but at least you don’t have to wrap them and fake smile while your Mom pretends like she loves the toast you go her. She has a toaster that works just fine.

Nick Foles, Philadelphia

After his 7 touchdown bonanza last week, Foles again produced for the early Foles adapters. 3 more touchdown passes on 228 yards passing. He has a nice matchup next week against Washington as well. If he’s a part of your QB stream, you’ve got a strong flow.

Dennis Johnson, Houston

With Arian Foster out for the rest of the year, and Ben Tate playing with broken ribs, it very probably that Johnson gets a big bump in playing time. He still received limited touches in Week 10, but this is the kind of situation that could pay off huge down the stretch for stash and hope fantasy owners.

Andre Brown, New York Giants

Hopefully you picked up Brown when I recommended him the last two weeks. As everyone thought would happen, he dominated the touches in the New York backfield to the tune of 30 carries, 115 yards, and 1 touchdown. He’s a three down back, that isn’t great at any one thing, but is good at everything. Maybe, just maybe, he’s still lingering on your wire.

Aaron Dobson, New England

When a bye week puts a player like Dobson out of site and out of mind, players like Dobson tend to stick on waiver wires. Tom Brady loves his new X Receiver, and Dobson is turning into a solid WR3 on most fantasy squads. In week 9, before the bye, Dobson hauled in five catches for 130 yards and two touchdowns. This week the Patriots play Carolina.

Golden Tate, Seattle

Russell Wilson loves him some Tate in the end zone, and if you haven’t seen his grab from last week, Youtube it. Percy Harvin is set to come back in Week 11, but if anything, this will free up Tate. Tate was their only passing threat, and now he will have a little breathing room.

Tavon Austin, St. Louis

The rookie from West Virginia finally had his coming out party. The bad thing is it took him 10 weeks. Hopefully, the 3 touchdowns lit a fire under his ass for the rest of the way. I still wouldn’t consider him anything more than your WR4.

Rueben Randle, New York Giants

Since week five, Randle has caught all of Eli Manning’s touchdown passes. Randle was dropped after inconsistent play as of late, but this past Sunday he hauled in a touchdown on 3 catches. Next week he gets the horrible Green Bay secondary.

John Carlson, Minnesota

Kyle Rudolph is gone for a couple weeks due to a foot injury giving Carlson an opportunity to step up in the passing game. Carlson caught seven catches for 98 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Redskins. He is a decent streaming option.

 

Good luck in week 11. Give me a follow on the Tweeter @EHaleYea.
