Week 10 is in the books and the fantasy football playoffs are quickly approaching. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, football is a contact sport, and starting players continue to go down. Here are the week 11 waiver must-adds.
Whisnant’s Week 11 Fantasy Waiver Adds
Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers
Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery both left week 10 with an injury and the offense turned Williams into the main runner. We did not see him post amazing numbers (20 carries, 67 yards) but the 20 carries is a great number to go into week 11 with if Williams gets to be the main back with all of the injuries ahead of him on the depth chart. The matchup against Baltimore limits his ceiling but the number one role he should have can make him a solid RB2 or flex play for the upcoming week.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots
The Patriots surprised many with the healthy scratch of Mike Gillislee. With him out of the backfield rotation, the Patriots can start using Burkhead more. He actually had more snaps than Dion Lewis but one less target. If this crowded backfield loses Gillislee, Burkhead can have value in your lineup in week 11, especially in PPR.
Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers
The rookie runner was the feature Chargers back in week 10. The backfield looks more like split time than Ekeler just being a handicap to Melvin Gordon. Ekeler has flex value now that he has passed Brandon Oliver and reaching important snaps in the game. So you can add Ekeler and expect a Danny Woodhead type role.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, Chicago Bears
This add is for those with wide receiver needs. Inman showed out Sunday in this run-heavy offense by leading the team in receiving. His ceiling is mainly a flex option for the upcoming weeks but it is clear he will have a big role in the passing attack along with Kendall Wright. His starting role is matchup based but he should be a flex play in week 11 if you need the help.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
If you are in a league that somehow has Coleman available on waivers, he is a must add. Coleman has had value in the flex since last season thanks to how well the Falcons offense can play, but now with Devonta Freeman dealing with a concussion, Coleman is a borderline RB1 if he starts. The matchup against Seattle is a rough one but being the number one backfield target on an offense like Atlanta can make anyone valuable in fantasy.
Also, I wrote about this last week, but go ahead and add Danny Woodhead if you haven’t and he is still available!
