Even though Week 10 isn’t fully in the books, it’s time to cast an eye over your Week 11 waiver wire pickups for the 2021 season.
We continue having to deal with bye weeks,but only two teams on bye this week:
- Denver Broncos
- Los Angeles Rams
All of these pickups are written in percentage, not priority. For a player to be eligible they have to be owned in less than 50% of leagues. The rostered percentage is taken from ESPN. Now, let’s get into them!
Mac Jones (NE) @ATL 13.9% rostered
Jones is having a good rookie season, infact he is having the best rookie season of the incoming draft class. He just seems to have found his groove in the offense. The thing is, it hasn’t always translated to fantasy. But, after a 3-TD game, he faces the Atlanta Falcons secondary.
Cam Newton (CAR) v WAS 12.4% rostered
The replacement for Cam Newton’s replacements replacement is Cam Newton. Yep, I think that’s right. But even if it’s not- the key is that Newton has returned to the team, and will likely step immediately into the starting role against Washington this week. Assuming he runs as often as he did the first time round, that’s great fantasy production to have.
Trevor Siemian (NO) @PHI 3.7% rostered
Siemian has continued to be the starter for the Saints, and he has performed well with it. He has thrown for 2TDs in each of his past two games, with good yardage to go with it. You might not want him unless you are in a really deep league, but you could do worse.
Others to Consider
- Baker Mayfield (CLE) v DET 33.2% rostered
- Tyrod Taylor (HOU) @TEN 6.2% rostered
