If you own Tony Romo or have become ensnared in the trap of QB injuries this season, there are some solid fantasy football options for week 11 in the NFL who are available in more than half of ESPN leagues. Here’s my top 5 to look for on the waiver wire this week:

1. Nick Foles-Philadelphia Eagles (45.4%)

So far this season, Foles has thrown 16 TD’s and no interceptions. He threw three more touchdowns in week 10 against the Packers after tying the NFL record with seven the week before against Oakland. Foles three TD’s were accompanied by 228 yards although he only attempted 18 passes since LeSean McCoy was running the ball effectively. Foles has shown he can run Chip Kelly’s offense effectively, so I think he’ll stay under center and is a low-end QB1 going forward. This week, the Eagles take on Washington whose secondary has been beatable all season making Foles a nice play if he gets the starting nod.

2. Jason Campbell-Cleveland Browns (4.1%)

Don’t forget Campbell who is coming off his bye week after a pair of very nice preformances against the Chiefs and Ravens. He’s thrown for five touchdowns in the two games with no interceptions and 558 passing yards. He’s a solid QB2 option even against a tough Bengals defense on the road which does limit his upside.

3. Case Keenum-Houston Texans (9.4%)

Keenum has made Andre Johnson owners happy and has boosted his stock after back-t0-back three TD performances. Against Arizona in week 10, he threw just 201 yards after 350 the week before, but has not thrown an interception yet this season. This week he has another good option against the Raiders defense who was demolished by Nick Foles just two weeks ago. Keenum is a low-end QB2 with plenty of upside this week.

4. Ryan Fitzpatrick-Tennessee Titans (0.6%)

Fitzpatrick is back under center and will be the rest of the season for Tennessee who face the beleaguered Colts defense this Thursday night. He’s a high-risk play, but I think he’ll end up with QB2 numbers this week.

5. Scott Tolzien-Green Bay Packers (0.0%)

Another risky option is Tolzien who will get the start against the Giants this week with Aaron Rodgers and Seneca Wallace both sidelined. He did throw for 280 yards and a touchdown last week against the Eagles, but a pair of costly interceptions didn’t help Green Bay get the win. He’s probably only going to gstart for a few weeks, but he’s worth a look if you are desperate.
