In most fantasy football leagues, the playoffs are just a few weeks away meaning it’s time to add the finishing touches to your team for the playoff push. The Cowboys and Rams are taking the week off this week, but the other 30 NFL teams give us a solid week 11 slate.
If injured or ineffective players are cluttering your roster, there continue to be plenty of options on the waiver wire that can boost your team to vicotry in the coming weeks.
Each Tuesday right here on Fansided.com you can find the top 10 waiver wire pickups for the coming week. In each top 10, you’ll find at least one quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end as well as a team defense with a favorable matchup in case you are streaming defenses or looking for a one-week fill in.
Throughout the rest of the week, keep coming back to Fansided’s fantasy page where you’ll find continuing coverage and analysis to help you get the win you need in week 11 as you jockey for playoff position coming down the stretch.
All players on this list or in the “best of the rest” on the final page are available in at least 50% of ESPN leagues as of Monday and their ownership percentages are included in parentheses. That means that some of the players on the list in the past (last week’s post available here) like Keenan Allen, Zac Stacy, Harry Douglas, Jordan Reed (pictured above), Danny Woodhead, Alshon Jeffery, Jordan Cameron, Julius Thomas, Chris Ivory, and Julian Edelman are no longer eligible to appear even though they still make good pickups if they’re available.
