Our weekly waiver wire takes a look at the top pickups for Week 11 of the NFL season. Many of these players are still available in a majority of leagues and could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster. Others might be worth stashing on your bench, or are simply just players to add to your watch list. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Football Forum.

Running Backs

Tre Mason STL | RB

Mason continues to lead the Rams backfield in touches and it’s hard to believe that more fantasy owners aren’t picking this guy up. He hasn’t looked amazing, but he has looked far better than the other running backs for the Rams. I fully expect Mason to continue to get the bulk of the carries for the rest of the season and at this point he needs to be owned in all leagues. (about 50% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Montee Ball DEN | RB

With the latest news about the Ronnie Hillman injury this jolts Ball back into fantasy relevancy. He was dropped in a decent amount of leagues after his injury, but it’s time to scoop him back up. If he plays well then he could earn his starting job back even once Hillman is healthy. (about 70% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Bishop Sankey TEN | RB

At this point I know it looks like Sankey is a bust, but not every running back has instant success in the NFL. When it comes to fantasy value it is more important to have opportunity than talent. If Sankey continues to touch the ball close to 20 times a game then I don’t care if he is just a slightly above average runner. (about 65% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Terrance West CLE | RB

I know it’s a mess with the Browns running backs, but at this point it’s clear that West is the guy to own. He has consistently looked the best out of the group and he continues to get the most touches. I see no reason why the Browns wouldn’t continue to feature their young running back. (about 60% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Charles Sims TB | RB

Sims didn’t play that well in his NFL debut, but he still has a big upside. Even when Doug Martin comes back I don’t think Tampa Bay will give him that many touches. I don’t see Bobby Rainey as anything more than a change of pace back, so I think Sims will continue to get more involved as the year goes on. Based on the reports coming out of Tampa it seems like they want to give their rookie running back every chance to be their future at that position. (about 35% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

C.J. Anderson DEN | RB

Anderson was solid during Week 10 after Ronnie Hillman was injured and it’s possible that he could have solid short term value. My money is on Montee Ball as the guy to own while Hillman is injured, but there is a chance that Anderson ends up being the running back to owns. If you have room on your bench for a high upside running back gamble then I would give Anderson a look. (about 10% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Alfred Blue HOU | RB

I know the reports are saying that Arian Foster will be back Week 11, but I think it’s far from a guarantee. Blue has proven that he can handle the load and he should be a decent start if Foster ends up missing a game or two. I think Blue is worth an add in most cases as a speculative pickup that could find your starting lineup this week if Foster remains out. (about 20% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Bryce Brown BUF | RB

Even though Fred Jackson will take back over as the featured back, I think Brown might have consistent value moving forward. It looks he has earned the role of their passing down running back and this makes him an interesting add in PPR leagues. Brown hasn’t looked as explosive as some people were hoping, but he does still have some big play potential. (about 20% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Joseph Randle DAL | RB

Ok DeMarco Murray owners, it’s time to pick this guy up. Randle is the clear backup for Murray and after the solid game that Randle had Week 10 it’s obvious that he has an upside. Since most of the bye weeks are now over you need to consider adding Randle to your bench for some security. (about 5% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Wide Receivers

Martavis Bryant PIT | WR

It’s always hard to trust rookie receivers in fantasy football, however at this point I think we need to start trusting Bryant. He just keeps putting up numbers and for some reason he is still only owned in a little over half of all leagues. He is clearly one of Big Ben’s favorite new toys and I love his upside for the rest of the season. (about 65% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Jordan Matthews PHI | WR

Sometimes when there is a quarterback change it can revive an offense and that could be the case for the Eagles. Mark Sanchez looked decent Week 10 and he was clearly on the same page with Matthews. The Eagles rookie receiver has been up and down this year, but I think he is a great add if you need help at receiver. (about 25% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Chris Hogan BUF | WR

With five catches in three of the last four games I think Hogan is someone that PPR owners need to start paying attention to. The undrafted second year receiver has earned more targets on the surprising Bills and I think they will keep looking his way down the stretch. If you need help at receiver in a deeper PPR league then I think you could do a lot worse. (about 5% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Jarvis Landry MIA | WR

Landry is quietly having a great season and he deserves more attention then he is getting. If you throw out Week 1 then he is averaging over six targets per game and he already has 37 catches on the season. He is now getting more targets than Brian Hartline and his value should continue to grow as the season goes on. Landry is a guy that should certainly have value in any 12+ team league at this point. (about 15% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

John Brown ARI | WR

Even though Brown has been a boom or bust receiver this year, I still like his overall upside. The Cardinals might not be as good with Drew Stanton behind center, but I still think they will find creative ways to get the ball in their rookie receivers hands. Brown is always one play away from a solid fantasy week and because of his big play potential I think he is a solid add in deeper leagues. (about 20% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Quarterbacks

Drew Stanton ARI | QB

Stanton has a huge opportunity with Carson Palmer hurting his knee and there is a chance that Stanton has value in some leagues. He will be surrounded with solid options and the Cardinals in general are still a great football team. I don’t think Stanton will put up huge numbers, but he needs to be considered in all two quarterback leagues and any 12+ team league. (about 5% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in deeper leagues

Tight End

Mychal Rivera OAK | TE

The argument about not picking up Rivera is that he scored his points during junk time at the end of their blowout lose. I would accept that argument if the Raiders had won even one game this year. At this point you have to think that the Raiders will be playing from behind for most of the second half of the season and for that reason I think Rivera is worth a look in all leagues. (about 35% owned)
Recommendation: Should be added in all leagues

Defenses

San Diego SD | DEF

The Oakland Raiders are terrible at football and that’s who the Chargers go up against Week 11. The Chargers defense has been up and down this year, but they should have a solid game against the Raiders. Another thing I like about the Chargers this week is that they are coming off of their bye and they should be fresh and ready to go. (about 15% owned)
Recommendation: Worth a look as a pickup and play
