Waiver Wire Watch: Week 11
Thanksgiving is two weeks away, and trade deadlines are looming in fantasy leagues across the nation. Make sure to know when yours is so you can plan accordingly on the waiver wire moving forward. It may not pay to spend big on FAAB or waiver priority if you have a potential trade to make before the deadline. I have been trying to wheel and deal in my leagues when possible, as the wire is still a bit thin at the top. However, there are plenty of solid role players to add, and we get to them below.
Recommendations are based on a PPR-scoring, four-point passing touchdown, 12-team league, with roster percentages coming from Yahoo. Typically, we will not be writing up players who are rostered in over 50% of leagues. We may include them on the lists, though, as a friendly reminder to scan your waiver wire for those names. Free-agent budget recommendations are based on a standard $100 budget for the season. I try to mention when a player is a better streaming play (short-term/one-week starter) versus a long-term addition. Lastly, the great John Paulsen will edit this article every week and adjust rankings (and prices, starting next week), if necessary. Essentially, you’re getting two minds collaborating on this piece instead of one, so lucky you.
