Week 11 NFL Waiver Wire Rankings

Hello Friends! Thank you for continuing to use The Fantasy Authority as your source for redraft and DFS information! Let’s dive right into our waiver wire rankings for Week 11!

Green = Top Waiver Option

Gold = Streaming target

Blue = Bench Options/Flex Options

Purple = Deep league bench plays


1) Marcus Mariota

2) Blake Bortles

3) Dak Prescott

4) Lamar Jackson

Marcus Mariota: Tennessee’s young quarterback is finally getting healthy and now has produced more than twenty fantasy points in two straight games. In his upcoming matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, Mariota should continue his success against a defense allowing an average of 18.4 fantasy points to quarterbacks per game.

Blake Bortles: In Week 10, the fantasy friendly version of Bortles reappeared with a 21.6 point performance against the Colts. The Jaguars quarterback should have an easier time producing with defenses stacking the box against Leonard Fournette and let’s not forget about Bortles’ sneaky dual-threat ability (currently averages 29.9 rushing yards per game this season).

Dak Prescott: Speaking of dual-threat quarterbacks, Prescott’s fantasy production has been impressive recently with twenty of more points in three of his last four games. In Week 11, the Cowboys  signal caller will face an Atlanta Falcons’ defense that ranks 29th in fantasy points allowed (23.7) to quarterbacks per game.

Lamar Jackson: With Joe Flacco’s status in doubt, it is worth adding Jackson especially in leagues with two quarterback formats. The explosive rookie adds a huge bonus with his rushing ability even though his passing production is likely to be volatile.

Running Back

1) Josh Adams

2) Elijah McGuire

3) Frank Gore

4) Nyheim Hines

5) Rashaad Penny

6) Theo Reddick

7) Jacquizz Rodgers

8) Corey Clement

9)  Jamaal Williams

10) LeGarrette Blount 

11) Ty Montgomery

12) Alfred Morris

13) Devontae Booker

14) Jordan Wilkins 

15) Chris Ivory

16) Alfred Blue

17) Malcolm Brown

18) Spencer Ware

19) Chase Edmunds

20) Rod Smith

Josh Adams: On Monday, Eagles’ head coach Doug Pederson confirmed with the media Adams is likely to see more carries in the future. The 22 year old back has one rushing attempt inside the ten-yard line in each game the last three weeks and produced an average of 54 rushing yards in the last two games against above average defenses (Jacksonville and Dallas).

Elijah McGuire: The second year back is slowly gaining playing time with logged snap counts of 54% and 57% since returning from his injury. McGuire has produced a total of 117 scrimmage yards on 18 touches and should continue to see more playing time with the Jets offense likely to be involved in passing game scripts.

Rashaad Penny: With Chris Carson expected to return, it is probably best to remain cautious about Penny’s success in Week 10 against the Rams. The Seattle backfield is too confusing to invest heavily in with Carson, Mike Davis, and Penny all fighting for touches so treat the Seattle rookie like a handcuff in non-dynasty leagues.

Wide Receivers

1) Josh Reynolds 

2) Donte Moncrief

3) Anthony Miller

4) Tyrell Williams

5) Tre’Quan Smith

6) Keke Coutee

7) DJ Moore

8) Dede Westbrook

9) Christian Kirk

10) Adam Humphries

11) Maurice Harris

12) John Ross

13) Josh Doctson

14) David Moore

15) Robbie Anderson / Quincy Enunwa

16) Willie Snead 

17) Allen Hurns / Cole Beasley

18) Laquon Treadwell

19) Brandon Marshall

20) James Washington

Josh Reynolds: Fully entrenched as the Rams third receiver, Reynolds has the most intriguing potential this week among waiver wire receiver candidates. In a two game sample size this season with Cooper Kupp out, the Rams have utilized their 2017 fourth round pick on 83% and 88% of offensive snaps or in starter like fashion. During that stretch, Reynolds produced a total of  two touchdowns and 61 receiving yards on four receptions.

Donte Moncrief: The twenty-five year old receiver has been productive this season, currently leading the Jaguars in receiving yards and ranking second in receiving touchdowns. Moncrief has shown explosive play-making abilities with seven receptions of twenty yards or more this season and also looks to be Jacksonville’s top receiving option in the red zone (four targets inside the ten-yard line).

Anthony Miller: Since returning from injury, the rookie wide out is averaging six targets and 54.4 receiving yards per game. Despite Allen Robinson returning in Week 10, Miller still was on the field for 73% of Chicago’s offensive plays and should continue to play a consistent role in the Bears passing offense.

John Ross: In an offense desperate for receiving options, Ross logged a season high in playing time and saw six targets against the Saints in Week 10. It was promising to see the Bengals utilize Ross in the red zone with his first target inside the ten-yard line since Week 1.

Tight Ends

1) Jeff Heuerman 

2) Chris Herndon 

3) Jonnu Smith

4) Gerald Everett / Tyler Higbee

5) Nick Vannett

Jonnu Smith: With the Tennessee passing attack recently showing some life, Smith emerged with two touchdowns and five receptions in the past two weeks. Playing time has not been an issue for the former 2017 third round pick, with logged snap counts of 92%, 77%, and 78% in the Titans’ past three games.

Gerald Everett / Tyler Higbee: The Rams tight end combination should see a bump in volume with Cooper Kupp sidelined for the season but let’s discuss each individually. Everett has a sneaky role in the red zone with six targets intended his way inside the twenty while Higbee plays the majority of offensive snaps and has already hauled in two touchdowns from targets inside the ten-yard line.

Nick Vannett: Despite the return of Ed Dickson, Vannett has been on the field for 49%, 59%, and 60% of offensive plays in the last three weeks. In a pass offense that relies heavily on efficient, the third year tight end has seen underrated volume in the red zone with three targets inside the ten-yard line.
