Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups: Lance Ball and Top Available Players
As we get deeper and deeper into the NFL regular season, it becomes increasingly difficult to hit the waiver wires for good talent.
How Does Your Fantasy Football Team Currently Rank?
It's a necessity to survive in fantasy football, and even though it is hard, this is where we come in. If you have a question about your lineup, don't hesitate to leave a comment and we'll help you out.
As for who you should pick up, it varies with every league.
But here are three guys available in a good amount of most leagues, and they are certainly worth adding.
Lance Ball, RB
The Denver Broncos are in a tough situation at running back, as news came out today that Knowshon Moreno is out for the rest of the year.
Willis McGahee is also banged up, which is why you need to quickly place a claim on Ball because he will be a hot add in fantasy football this week.
Owned in less than one percent of ESPN leagues and only six percent of Yahoo! leagues, Ball had 30 rushing attempts against the Chiefs this past Sunday.
It's no secret that John Fox loves to run the ball, so expect Ball to get a good number of carries while the other running backs heal.
Laurent Robinson, WR
The Dallas Cowboys have had a few surprise players this year, and one of them is Robinson. He has done an outstanding job filling in for the injured Miles Austin, and is slowly become a favorite target for Tony Romo.
Robinson has caught four touchdown passes in his last three games, and has two games this season of over 100 receiving yards. Not bad for a guy you've probably never heard of.
With Austin's health still up in the air, adding Robinson will prove to be a good move, as he is a serious threat on the deep ball.
Owned in only 13 percent of ESPN leagues and 49 percent of Yahoo! leagues, Robinson needs to be on your roster for the remainder of the year.
Denarius Moore, WR
Moore has become a top target for Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders, having more balls thrown his way than any other Raiders receiver in the last two games.
Week 10 was very kind to Moore, as he caught five passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns. He's not going to have that type of game every week, but he is still worth picking up because he's shown just how good he can be.
Moore is owned in 32 percent of ESPN leagues and 57 percent of Yahoo! leagues. He's only going to keep producing for the Raiders as the weeks go on, especially since he and Palmer continue to improve their chemistry in practice.
Will the Falcons Make the Playoffs?
Harry Douglas, WR
The Falcons were once again hit by the injury bug, as rookie receiver Julio Jones injured his hamstring. It's unknown how long he will be out, but since he's back on the injury list for a second time this season, the Falcons would be wise to make sure they don't rush his return.
Douglas caught eight passes for 133 yards on Sunday, and he's going to be used much more over the course of the next few weeks while Jones is out.
Matt Ryan still loves to air it out, and without Jones, the coverage on Roddy White will increase, meaning Douglas has to step up. This isn't new to Douglas, though, as he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution he has the same approach every week.
"Same mindset I have everyday, when I approach practice, when I approach meetings, when I approach games,” Douglas said. “My mindset doesn’t change. I just know I’m going to have to make more plays, that’s all.
I practice throughout the week at all [wide receiver] positions. I run routes at all positions. If one person goes down, I know I have to step up"
Douglas is owned in less than one percent of ESPN leagues and only three percent of Yahoo! Leagues. He's better suited for a deep league, but I'd still pick him up just to prevent your rivals from getting him because his production will begin to increase on Sunday.
