Week 11 Waiver Wire Targets

Here's my top recommended waiver wire and streaming targets ahead of the coming week. Waiver Wire targets are designed to be multi-week roster-worthy options while streaming options are designed to be one-week lineup options based on matchup, injuries, and/or situation. To be eligible as a waiver wire or streaming option, the player must be available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues.



Top Waiver Wire Targets of the Week:
  1. Keaton Mitchell (RB - Baltimore Ravens) - It was another week as the Ravens' most productive back by a definitive margin, breaking off a 39-yard TD in the first quarter while lead back Gus Edwards once again posted an ugly 2.2 YPC. He only got 22% of the snaps in Week 10, but he ranks 2nd in the NFL in runs of 20+ yards (3) - he has 12 total carries. His production and efficiency (especially relative to the inefficiency elsewhere in the Ravens' backfield) are too much to keep him from a notably increased role as the season progresses.

  2. Brandin Cooks (WR - Dallas Cowboys) - Cooks has established himself as the definitive number 2 in the Cowboys' offense and has become more involved as the season has progressed, posting 14+ points in three of his last four games, including a 10-target (9 catches), 173-yard, 32.3-point game in Week 10. The schedule is fantastic down the stretch and, while the TD Dependency hasn't been ideal for him over the last month, Cooks could easily make a push to become a weekly FLEX option down the stretch.

  3. Demario Douglas (WR - New England Patriots) - There's no more secure of a WR on waivers than Demario Douglas, now commanding 29 targets over his last four games, which have resulted in three 10+ point performances. He doesn't offer an exceptional weekly ceiling (in large part due to the QB play) but Douglas has entered borderline FLEX range on a weekly basis going forward.

  4. Ty Chandler (RB - Minnesota Vikings) - Alexander Mattison exited Week 10 with a concussion, paving the way for Chandler to control the Vikings' backfield with 15 carries for 45 yards and a TD, leading the backfield 7-2 in carries after Mattison's departure. Chandler looked exceptional in the preseason and while he hasn't been overly efficient (3.4 YPC) this season, the door is open for him to not only serve as a short-term RB2/FLEX option but also potentially steal the starting job after Mattison has struggled with just 2.85 YPC over the last 6 weeks.

  5. Zach Charbonnet (RB - Seattle Seahawks) - Charbonnet's efficiency continues to be incredible, eclipsing 5+ YPC for the 4th time in 6 games and bringing his season-long YPC to 5.6. What was new for Charbonnet was an increased utilization in the receiving game, drawing season-highs in targets (5), catches (4), and receiving yards (18). It was back-to-back sub-par rushing performances from Kenneth Walker (3.3 YPC in Week 10, 1.8 YPC in Week 9), so Charbonnet could easily continue his upward trajectory as the season progresses. The upside is certainly there for an end-of-season lineup option.

  6. Curtis Samuel (WR - Washington Commanders)

  7. Jayden Reed (WR - Green Bay Packers)

  8. Michael Wilson (WR - Arizona Cardinals)

  9. Noah Brown (WR - Houston Texans)

  10. Tyjae Spears (RB - Tennessee Titans)
