2021 Fantasy Football Week 11 Waiver Wire

2021 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 11

Well. Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs look like they’re back. After three-plus weeks of panic and questioning, the reigning AFC Champions came out firing on Sunday night.

With the division lead on the line, Mahomes threw for 406 yards and five touchdowns. Perhaps a key divisional game away from Arrowhead was all the Chiefs needed to get back on track.

Hopefully, this is something that can continue, because the NFL is more fun when Mahomes and the Chiefs are firing on all cylinders.

The 2021 Fantasy Football Week 11 Waiver Wire will focus on players rostered in under 35% of Yahoo leagues.

Quarterbacks

Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers (16% rostered)

He’s baaaaaack!

Newton returned to the Panthers following the injury to Sam Darnold and made an immediate impact. On his first snap of the season, the former MVP rushed for a two-yard touchdown. He followed up by tossing a touchdown to Robby Anderson on his first pass back with his old team.

P.J. Walker was ineffective as the starter and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Newton get the start vs. Washington in Week 11.

The passing floor is low but no other quarterback presents the kind of rushing touchdown upside that Newton brings. Superflex managers should rush to add Newton if he wasn’t already snatched up prior to Sunday’s memorable comeback.

Other Options: Justin Fields, Chicago Bears (25% rostered), Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins (23% rostered) Trevor Siemian, New Orleans Saints (5% rostered)

Fields has the highest upside between these three widely available quarterbacks but has the toughest Week 11 matchup against the Ravens. Managers who can him hold an extra week will get rewarded with a nice Week 12 date against the Detroit Lions.

For Managers needing immediate help, Tagovailoa gets a nice matchup against the New York Jets in Week 11.

Running Backs

Rhamondre Stevenson, New England Patriots (32% rostered)

Stevenson was given the starter’s load with Damien Harris on the sidelines and he did not disappoint. He ran all over the Browns in Sunday’s blowout win, rushing for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries while also adding four catches for 14 yards.

Stevenson is a powerful runner that is also explosive enough to break out long runs, as he did on Sunday. 

Harris will likely return from a concussion in Week 11. However, Stevenson has more than earned a share of the backfield work moving forward. If Harris is not ready to play on a short week, Stevenson will be a solid RB2 against the Falcons on Thursday night. 

Wayne Gallman, Atlanta Falcons (1% rostered)

Cordarrelle Patterson is not optimistic about his chances to play on Thursday against the Patriots due to a sprained ankle. If he doesn’t play, Gallman should see his carries jump as the Falcons look for a backfield replacement. The former New York Giant was given 15 carries in Atlanta’s blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Mike Davis saw just five carries and did not factor into garbage time.

Davis has not been a contributor for the Falcons or Fantasy managers this season and may have been passed on the depth chart by Gallman.

Managers desperate for a running back can take a shot on Gallman as he faces a tough Pats defense that has held its opponents to 13 total points over the past two weeks.

Wide Receivers

DeAndre Carter, Washington Football Team (1% rostered)

Carter has carved out a solid role in Washington’s offense and has now put up at least 50 yards and a touchdown in each of his past two games.

The undrafted product out of Sacramento State has been a bit of a journeyman in his career but has found a spot with Washington and is making the most of it.

Curtis Samuel could be placed on season-ending injured reserve soon, leaving a decent chunk of targets for Carter. He’s seen six targets during his mini two-game breakout and could be a decent deep-league option if his role remains consistent.

Jamal Agnew, Jacksonville Jaguars (9% rostered)

Agnew showed once again that he is the Jags most explosive playmaker. Despite not recording a reception on five targets, the fifth-year veteran took three carries for 79 yards and a touchdown. 

He’s only seen 10 targets other the past two weeks after seeing 12 in Week 8 alone but his versatility has kept him involved in the offense. Agnew’s floor is low but he is worth a look as a dart-throw FLEX for managers in a bye week or injury pinch.

Tight Ends

Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars (26% rostered)

Tyler Conklin, Minnesota Vikings (30% rostered)

I’m writing myself a 2-for-1 on the tight ends this week.

I touted Arnold last week. And the week before. For the third-straight week, he led the Jags in receiving yards and is the only consistent pass catcher in that offense. He’s seen 24 targets over his past four games and, if he managed to find the endzone, would be rostered in way more than 26 percent of leagues.

Conklin didn’t see seven targets for the third-straight week but made up for it with a pair of touchdowns. He’s a big part of the Vikings’ offense and should also be rostered in far more leagues.

Deep League Special

Tre'Quan Smith, WR, New Orleans Saints (3% rostered)

Embed from Getty Images
Smith was the forgotten man in the Saints receiver corps as he started the year on injured reserve. Now fully healthy, Smith is slowly starting to find his chemistry with Trevor Siemian

Smith saw season highs in both targets (7) and receptions (4) in Week 10 which resulted in 44 yards and a touchdown. There is room for another playmaker in the Saints offense with Alvin Kamara dealing with an injury and Smith could fill that void.
