Waiver Wire Watch List: Week 11
Quarterback: Joe Flacco might miss time because of his hip injury, and if he does, it’s officially Lamar Jackson season. He may only be useful for one or two weeks, if at all, but if he does play, he has a chance to shine in the fantasy world due to the possibility of having a strong impact in both the run and pass game. The Bengals also are struggling mightily on defense (they fired their defensive coordinator this week). I would stash Jackson on the bench because he has the potential to have a big game if he gets the start against Cincinnati. Also if the Ravens fall out of playoff contention or get desperate enough, he may start a few games at the end of the season.
Running Back: Seahawks first round pick, Rashaad Penny, finally had the breakout game we have all been waiting for and should be a top priority for teams looking for a running back. He ran for 108 yards and a touchdown on 12 touches last week. There is a chance Chris Carson will return this week for the Seahawks, but the organization has high hopes for Penny, and would probably like to continue to give him the majority of the carries, especially with Carson continuing to recover.
Wide Receiver: If Chris Godwin is still available in your fantasy league, he is a good pickup for teams looking for a wide receiver. Godwin has been very consistent this season, he has had 4 touchdowns, and continues to put up at least ten fantasy points in most games. It looks like the Bucs are sticking with Fitzpatrick at quarterback, and that bodes well for Godwin’s future fantasy production.
Tight End: Another Seahawks player, Nick Vannett, is a solid option off the waiver wire for those who continue to struggle at the tight end position. He has caught a touchdown in the past two games, so hope Russell Wilson continues to find him in the endzone.
