Early Look at Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups for Fantasy Football

There are four teams on bye in Week 11; JaguarsDolphinsSeahawks, and Buccaneers. Based on how they rank so far this season, the top players to replace are Tua Tagovailoa, Geno Smith, Tom Brady, Jeff Wilson, Kenneth Walker, Travis Etienne, Leonard Fournette, Christian Kirk, Tyreek HillJaylen Waddle, Tyler Lockett, DK MetcalfMike Evans, and Chris Godwin. Here’s a look at some possible waiver wire options to pickup heading into Week 11.


Matt Ryan, Indianapolis Colts

Heading into Week 10, Ryan was in the free-agent pool in almost all leagues after missing two games with a shoulder injury while also falling out of favor with former head coach Frank Reich. However, he surprisingly started this week vs. the Raiders, giving fantasy managers hope that Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman can be fantasy relevant down the stretch. The Colts play the next two games at home (PHI and PIT). Ryan has a long enough resume to be a 250-yard and two-touchdown player if his offensive line gives him enough time to throw. For now, he will be a backup upgrade for some fantasy teams while also working as a bye-week filler over the next month if he keeps the starting job.
