Top Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets for Week 11
With Week 11 bye teams out and the awful injury bug hitting some of our best players, it’s time once again to visit that waiver wire in hopes to secure some fantasy football late-season gems.
Mark Sanchez, Philadelphia Eagles
If he’s still out there on your waiver wire and you’re in quarterback desperation heading into Week 11, go for Sanchez. While no one was expecting it, Sanchez starting in his first game this season led the Eagles to a monster win in Monday Night Football. He ranked fourth overall among other QB’s, passed for clean 332 yards and two touchdowns.
Kyle Orton, Buffalo Bills
Orton may be out on waivers due to some dumping him over his Week 9 bye. He’s worth a look if you have the need with seven passing touchdowns and 780 yards in his last three games.
Drew Stanton, Arizona Cardinals
In deeper leagues or two QB leagues, Stanton could suffice as a one-week fill-in now that Carson Palmer will be out for the remainder of the season. In the games he has played, he helped lead the Cardinals to three of four wins this season.
C.J. Anderson, Denver Broncos
Anderson was a beast filling in for an injured Ronnie Hillman last Sunday totaling 163 yards and an amazing 51-yard touchdown. Hillman will be out for at least a couple of weeks, and even with Montee Ball returning, there could be lots of garbage time totes for Anderson in Week 11 versus the St. Louis Rams.
Charles Simms, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Finally coming into action last week is Simms who certainly could be receiving more carries with a struggling Doug Martin and a luke-warm Bobby Rainey just not getting the job done for the 1-8 Buccaneers.
Theo Riddick, Detroit Lions
Riddick makes a sufficient Week 11 waiver wire add in deep leagues. if Reggie Bush remains banged up, Riddick benefits in Bush’s pass-catching role making him more of a PPR fantasy option moving forth.
Bryce Brown, Buffalo Bills
Brown was impressive enough tallying up 100 yards in Week 10. While the Bills ease Fred Jackson back into action, Brown should see enough work to be a flex-worthy option for the time being.

Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers
Mathews sits on many waivers due to the fact most people just don’t have room to house an injured player for multiple weeks. However, Week 11 has Mathews returning to face a giving Raiders’ defense where we just watched Broncos’ Anderson do all kinds of damage.
Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh Steelers
Bryant shouldn’t be sitting around on any waiver wires after four solid, double-digit fantasy performances since Week 7. If he is out there in Week 11, however, grab him. Over the last two weeks, Bryant ranks fourth among wide receivers, even ahead of fellow WR Antonio Brown.
Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Evans leads in fantasy points among wide receivers over the past two weeks. In smaller leagues, Evans may be sitting on some waivers and if so, make a play to acquire him in Week 8. The guy has just been dynamite with 249 receiving yards and three touchdowns in Weeks 9 and 10.
John Brown, Arizona Cardinals
Drew Stanton now staring in Arizona has eyes for Brown as his favorite target. Stepping into action on Sunday, Stanton’s first pass was a massive 48-yard touchdown bomb to Brown. If anything, stash Brown as depth to your roster.
Cecil Shorts, Jacksonville Jaguars
While touchdowns will be a rarity, Shorts consistently receives targets with seven being the least he has in his seven games of play. With a Week 11 bye week, some may drop him, however, he’s a good PPR guy to own and hang on to until the team returns in Week 12.
Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota Vikings
Rudolph appears to be ready to return to action coming off the Vikings’ bye week. With Minnesota’s struggling receivers, Rudolph could breathe some life back into the team giving Teddy Bridgewater a reliable red zone target to hurl the ball to.
Mychal Rivera, Oakland Raiders
Rivera makes a sweet late-season tight end pickup, especially if you’re still playing a stale and non-performing tight end like Vernon Davis each week. It doesn’t matter that the Raiders aren’t winning as long as Derek Carr is consistently targeting Rivera each week. Over the last two weeks, Rivera has 14 catches on 19 targets for 102 yards and three touchdowns.
It’s no fluke, Mychal Rivera is the Derek Carr’s safety blanket, and he should continue to eat up targets in Oakland.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Seferian-Jenkins benefits from Josh McCown returning to the starting lineup for the Buccaneers. Surely out on most Week 11 waiver wires, if you are in deep need for a better or a bye week tight end, Seferian-Jenkins, ranking 15th among TE’s over the past two weeks is worth an add.
Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts
Allen may be found on some Week 11 waivers due to the fact he may have been dropped on his bye last week. He should be owned, as he’s a solid TE2 nearly every week. In eight weeks of play, Allen only has two games with single-digit fantasy points and two games that he hasn’t scored.
