NFL Fantasy: Week 11 Waiver Wire Targets
Heading into Week 11 your waiver wire has undoubtedly been picked clean, which makes it that much more difficult to find viable options. Luckily for you I have yet another four options for you to feast your eyes on.
C.J. Prosise, RB, Seahawks - With Christine Michael struggling and not operating at 100%, Prosise was the featured back on Sunday night. He out carried him 17-5 and also led the team with seven receptions totaling 87 yards, all in all he gained 153 yards from scrimmage. He's not built to be an every down back, made evident by some punishing hits he couldn't power through or withstand. With Thomas Rawls on the verge of returning, Prosise will lose some touches but will continue to see a high volume of passes coming his way. In saying that, it makes him a great Flex option or a place holder for a player on a bye week. (Owned in 35% of Yahoo Leagues)
Ladarius Green, TE, Steelers - The Pittsburgh Steelers big off season acquisition finally made it into a game on Sunday. Although he didn't play a whole lot, he looked healthy in the limited time he was on the field. Green saw four targets on Sunday and turned them into three receptions and 30 yards. As the weeks go on Green will be featured more and more, adding a player with his size and ability at a position his quarterback likes to use as a security blanket, could help lead you to a championship. He has some great matchups down the stretch so add him now and ride the wave. (Owned in 10% of Yahoo Leagues)
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seahawks - Rawls is set to return in Week 11 and it couldn't come at a better time for the Seahawks, as they've struggled to produce a reliable run game over the past three weeks. As I mentioned earlier, Prosise isn't big enough to sustain success between the tackles and with Cristine Michael struggling, Rawls could easily supplant both of them with a steady showing in Week 11. If Rawls is available in your league and your in need of RB help, Rawls is a great option down the stretch. (Owned in 48% of Yahoo Leagues)
Robert Woods, WR, Bills - Woods has had an up and down season as the de facto No.1 receiver for the Bills, he's either been productive or not. That type of inconsistency isn't what you want down the stretch, but if your in need of a WR to fill a players spot who's on a bye, Woods is worth a look. Not operating at 100%, he torched the Seahawks secondary for 162 yards on 10 receptions, with his team on a bye in Week 10 it's given him more time to heal. He may be in for another big week come Sunday. (Owned in 16% of Yahoo Leagues)
