Dynasty Football Stock Guide: Week Eleven Waivers

Dynasty football is all about maximizing value by buying low and selling high. These three players could be available for cheap to help your dynasty team. Plus, one player worth selling high on following the second week of the football season. The eleventh in a weekly series for the 2015 NFL season, here is the Dynasty Stock Guide, week eleven addition.

Buy Low

Spencer Ware (RB, Kansas City Chiefs)

If Ware isn’t owned in you league he is an absolute must-add for your dynasty team. Ware came on in relief when Charcandrick West injured his hamstring. He rushed for 96 yards on 11 carries, and added two rushing touchdowns as well. Obviously West remains the lead back when healthy, but Ware played exceedingly well and could get his share of carries and perhaps split the workload in the Kansas City. With Jamaal Charles out for the season and perhaps nearing the back end of his career, Ware could see an increase in work load in the future.

 

Jonathan Grimes (RB, Houston Texans)

Grimes has come onto the scene quietly in Houston, but has been outproducing starter Alfred Blue on a regular basis. Grimes ran 6 times for 37 yards on Sunday, averaging 6.2 yards per carry. Comparatively, Blue ran for 58 yards on 21 carries against the Jets, averaging a meager 2.8 yards per carry. Both backs were involved in the passing game, each catching three passes on three targets, with Blue logging 34 yards and one touchdown, while Grimes had 28 receiving yards. Grimes is the lesser known and cheaper back in the Texans backfield, and considering Blue’s inefficiency Grimes is more than worth a speculative add.

 

Albert Wilson (WR, Kansas City Chiefs)

Wilson is a young athletic receiver from Georgia State, and is still in his second year in the league. He has produced on very limited targets in an exceedingly conservative offense in Kansas City. This Sunday he caught four of four targets for 56 yards. He was the clear third option behind Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce. Wilson’s upside is severely capped in this offense, however, if the Chiefs ever decided to make a change at the quarterback or head coach positions in the future the Wilson could see an uptick in his value. He has little to no value in your lineups now, but can be leveraged as a solid stash play.

 

Sell High

Zach Ertz (TE, Philadelphia Eagles)

Ertz has been a disappointment this season, and honestly has not shown to be a viable fantasy threat as an NFL tight end. He’s seen as an “upside” tight end play in many places, but its tough to see much upside in his situation. He’s been seeing only about 68% of the Eagles’ offensive snaps, and has often been on for only passing downs, making him easy to cover and game plan for. His season high in yards is only 68, coming two weeks ago against a Miami defense that has been nonexistent against tight ends. He still has yet to score a touchdown this season, and while some of it was unlucky, Ertz simply is not all he’s been paraded as. Selling Ertz as an upside TE1 to someone on name value alone.
