It’s Week 11 which means for most leagues the fantasy playoffs will start in three weeks. You don’t want to be on the outside looking in. Missing the fantasy playoffs is equivalent to watching your family eat Thanksgiving dinner right in front of your face and you not being allowed to take a single bite. Hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving and it’s even harder to believe that some of these players are still under 50% owned on the waiver wire. If you see these names on the waiver wire this week you should consider picking them up instead of letting the leftovers go to waste.
Note: In order to be considered as a Waiver Wire Leftover in this article, the player percentage had to be under 50% owned.
QB Eli Manning (50% Owned) vs. KC
Manning is a great streaming play this week at AB because of the easy matchup against the Chiefs. The Chiefs in their last three away games have given up an average of 30.8 fantasy points to quarterbacks. In those three weeks, QBs threw for 10 passing touchdowns and are averaging 309 passing yards per game. Start Manning this week with confidence.
RB Danny Woodhead (38% Owned) @GB
Woodhead and the Ravens are currently noncommittal about his Week 11 status. What is certain is how the Ravens love throwing to their running backs and how efficient Woodhead is at catching the ball. If you’re in a PPR league Woodhead is a must own for rest of the season with his high ceiling.
RB Rex Burkhead (32% Owned) @OAK
Trying to predict which Patriots running back is going to score fantasy points isn’t easy. I can assure you though that Mike Gillislee will not be scoring points if he continues to be inactive. A big reason why he was inactive for Week 10 was because of Burkhead. He had 13 touches and a touchdown last week on arguably the best offense in the NFL. The Patriots love how versatile he is as they can line him up in the slot and out of the backfield. With Chris Hogan battling an injury, look for Burkhead to be on the field more to give Brady another option.
RB Jamaal Williams (29% Owned) vs. BAL
In the Packers Week 10 win over the Bears, Williams saw 20 carries. He did, however, manage only 67 yards but anytime a running back that is getting 21 touches a game is on the waiver wire he is worth adding simply based on volume. With Aaron Jones out three to six weeks and Ty Montgomery battling a rib injury, Williams is looking like the every-down running back for the Packers which is worth owning.
WR Corey Coleman (27% Owned) vs. JAX
First off if you think I am saying pick up Coleman and start him against the Jaguars you are crazy. Coleman is scheduled to return in Week 11 and before everyone remembers the name Corey Coleman go out and pick him up this week to beat the trend. He will be the WR1 on an offense that will be losing most if not every single game for the rest of the season. There’s late season appeal even in a bad offense.
