Is your fantasy football team in desperate need of a key waiver wire pickup? Here are players you can stream (and avoid) in week-11 of the 2019 NFL season.
As we enter week-11 of the 2019 NFL season, some fantasy football owners may be in desperate need of a player or two to bolster your roster. Here are FOUR essential waiver wire pickups to help improve your team and THREE players to avoid.
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups, Week-11
QUARTERBACK – KYLE ALLEN vs FALCONS
Now that Cam Newton is officially on injured reserve, it is safe to assume that Carolina has the full confidence of Kyle Allen. He has done very well for Carolina, winning four out of his first six games. Production-wise, Allen has been fairly ordinary. The attraction to Allen is the schedule. Facing an Atlanta team that put up a huge upset over the Saints in New Orleans last week is actually still a fantastic matchup. I don’t see the Atlanta pass rush getting to Allen the way they got to Brees. Start him with confidence.
RUNNING BACK – FRANK GORE vs DOLPHINS
The big waiver pickup this week will be Brian Hill of the Falcons, but I assume that you guys won’t have the FAAB money, or priority to get that guy. This week I think you could consider Frank Gore who has had a dreadful stretch the last month. One of those dreadful games came against Miami, who Gore will face once again this week. While I think Singletary will be the primary ball carrier for Buffalo, I wouldn’t sleep on Gore stealing a goal-line touch or busting off a big run against a very soft defense.
WIDE RECEIVER – ZACH PASCAL vs JAGUARS
Brian Hoyer was not good for the Colts last week. I’m hoping that Jacoby Brissett will be able to play against Jacksonville which would be great for Pascal who has been decent this year for Indy. At this point, he is the last man standing while the Colts have injuries to Hilton and Paris Campbell. That makes this a volume play. You could probably find better options if you looked hard enough, but I’ll give Pascal the shot in the arm this week with a lot of really good wideouts on bye this week.
TIGHT END – RYAN GRIFFEN vs REDSKINS
Griffen had created a very good rapport with Darnold before Chris Herndon FINALLY made it back from suspension and injuries. Now Herndon is injured yet again with a rib injury. He will miss at least multiple weeks. Griffen is just as good as any other free-agent tight end right now, so take a chance he scores against a really bad Washington team.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Players to avoid in Week-11
QUARTERBACK – SAM DARNOLD vs REDSKINS
In what has been a tough year for the Jets, Sam Darnold’s paranormal visions haven’t helped his team take any steps towards relevance. The upcoming matchup versus the Redskins looks like a great play on paper, but when you really dissect the play of Sam Darnold, you find that he lacks the ability to be a sure-fire, trustworthy starter. His best game this season (against the Cowboys) was a 300-yard performance with 2 touchdowns. Even in positive matchups, Sam has not been elevating his floor. I would look for better options in week 11.
RUNNING BACK – Brian Hill vs PANTHERS
Brian Hill is sure to be the top add this week after Davante Freeman has once again succumbed to an injury. I’m not entirely panning his worth or future success, but I do think that this game against a tough Panthers defense will not lend itself to a positive game script for Hill. I would imagine that Matt Ryan will have to throw a lot in this game, and I think Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley will be the primary beneficiaries of that.
WIDE RECEIVER – Debo Samuel vs CARDINALS
With Emanuel Sanders getting injured and George Kittle failing to suit up for Monday night, Samuel will likely be a hot add. Dante Pettis is playing his way to unemployment and the other 49ers receivers can’t catch. It seems like a good situation, but I would temper expectations. Handsome Jimmy looked a little frazzled on Monday. No doubt missing his safety valve in Kittle. Don’t expect any big games from Samuel this week against one of the best matchups on paper. I think Shannahan will find other ways to beat this division rival.
