Waiver Wire Week 11
A few sneaky guys to get
Please note that I play in 10 and 12 team leagues with 27-30 player rosters, so between 300-324 players are already on rosters in my leagues. That said, here are some of the guys I'll be putting bids in on this week.
This is another terrible week for the waiver wire in true dynasty leagues. I will list a few guys, but I can't make things up just for the purpose of listing some names. It's just a bad week. Hopefully your teams are already stacked.
Last week I did not list any RBs.
Jaylen Samuels (Pittsburg): Now that we know Bell is not going to play for Pittsburg, we also know that Samuels is the permanent backup to Conner. He did well on his touches on Thursday night after Conner was hurt, even scoring a on one of his three receptions. I liked him in last year's rookie draft. I had him on several of my teams after the draft but cut him in the final preseason roster cuts. He's a versatile athlete. He played RB, WR, and TE at NC State. He'd be my #1 waiver wire pick for this week.
Last week I listed Maurice Harris and Adam Humphries. Harris did well again, catching 5 passes on his 5 targets for 52 yards. He's worth holding on to. Humphries was only targeted 3 times compared to the 8 times two weeks ago. Like I wrote last week, he's not the kind of guy I like to roster.
- Trey Quinn (Washington): I made this move last week in several of my leagues. Quinn was on the "IR designated for return" list and can return to play whenever the team decides he is ready. He's already been practicing with the team. The Redskins receivers are all banged up so he could get his chance to play soon. They raved about his play in the presason before his injury. He was Mr. Insignificant in last year's draft, but a lot draft experts that I follow believed he sould have been drafted rounds earlier. He'd be my #2 target to get off waivers this week.
- Brandon Marshall (New Orleans): He's the new Dez Bryant. That was sad news for Dez. Hopefully Marshall can stay healthy on his new team. Cam Meredith was moved to IR so there is certainly room for Marshall to get snaps, and Brees is the kind of QB that can get Marshall jump balls and back shoulder throws in the endzone. That may be all that Marshall can do anymore at this stage of his career. Obviously it is not a long-term dynasty move to make, but if you need help this year it would be worth a try. I would not drop a young WR with upside on my team to get him though.
Last week I listed Jeff Heuerman. He had a bye week last week and was not picked up in most of my leagues. I would try to get him if so, but I would prefer to grab Vannett over him.
- Nick Vannett (Seattle): As I suspected at the start of the season, Vannett is the TE to own in Seattle. It just took some injuries and time to get there. He's only getting 60% of the snap count, but he is productive when he is in there. He has caught a TD each of the last two weeks. Russell Wilson loves to throw to his TEs in the red zone. He's a great addition. He'd be my #3 priority this week.
