Week 11 Dynasty Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Targets

4 min read

Injured Players, All Teams, All Positions: Less Than 15% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 0%

It’s week 11. You’re either set for the playoffs, fighting for a spot or out. This blurb is for those who are out. Those who have cuts to make and keeper decisions. This is a perfect time to begin going after the forgotten to build depth which is key as a dynasty team general manager.

Rookies: Jalen Hurd and Hakeem Butler

They are both on good offenses and basically get a redshirt year. These guys were both 3rd-4th round picks with upside and you can get them now for free. A person’s worst trait can be their patience and more than likely, these guys are floating on the waiver wire because someone got tired of waiting on them or needed the IR spots for someone more important. Start retooling that taxi squad or the bottom of your bench right with some great youth. I’m telling you, this is how I’ve built championship teams.

Veterans: Ben Roethlisberger, Devin Funchess, Will Dissly

Ben Roethlisberger is the easy one here. His young weapons will have a little more time under their belt and will be ready for possibly one last run before he rides off into the sunset. No he’s no longer a top 12 guy, but he will be a dependable QB2 and is worth a pickup.

Devin Funchess came in as the WR2 before getting hurt and will come back around WR2/3 value. He’s not old and still has plenty career left. With Eric Ebron playing the way he’s playing and Doyle being who he is, Funchess will have a easy route to targets behind TY Hilton and eventually Parris Campbell.

Will Dissly was working out so well for Russell Wilson again before being taken down by the injury bug. I look for him to come back to less target share but better opportunity. With the emergence of DK Metcalf, signing of Josh Gordon and continuous good play of Lockett, I feel like Dissly will have all sorts of room to work. Again, we’re talking about free flyers for depth. They can be dropped at anytime.

Ryan Griffin, NYJ, TE: Less than 3% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 0%

We keep thinking, “Here comes Chris Herndon” and yet he keeps going down with some kind of injury. It keeps leaving the door open for Ryan Griffin to continue to see targets. If you’re hurting because of all the injuries at the position, here’s a guy who can at least get you a few points to help you out the rest of the season.

Brian Hill, ATL, RB: Less than 8% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Medium
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 6%

This may be a move that can help you win a game or two (depending on how long Devonta Freeman is out). Brian Hill is going to be one of those hot pickups for both redraft and dynasty. Get to him while you can. The workload he had was enough to at least put your faith in him for a game or two. He ended up with 20 carries and 2 targets and has the backing of the coaching staff. The opportunity is there, go get him.

Russel Gage, ATL, WR: Less than 3% Owned

Waiver Wire Priority: Low
FAAB Budget Recommendation: 0-2%

This move may actually prove to be more clutch this season (but has future potential) than some of the other pickups mentioned. Gage is slowly just stepping right into the Sanu role and getting fed. With Hooper going down, I wouldn’t be running towards his backups, I’d be going towards a a trustworthy option already getting playtime. Over the last two weeks he has had 11 receptions on 14 targets for 81 yards. I expect that to go up and for him to continue to receive most of the work across the middle from that Y position.
