Fantasy Football Update 11/18/16: Week 11 Sleeper Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 11
November 18, 2016
Week 11 in the NFL is already underway, so it’s time to get those fantasy football lineups solidified ahead of Sunday’s games. With that in mind, let’s examine a few waiver wire and sleeper options out there for this round of games.
Pittsburgh Steelers Defense: Once upon a time, the Steelers D was a must-own in fantasy. Times have changed, however, and they haven’t put up a double-digit fantasy performance yet this year.

That said, the Steelers have a choice matchup this week against the Browns, and if there’s any week they’re poised for a breakout, it’s this one. Pittsburgh is still available in over half the leagues out there, so check them quick.
Tyreek Hill, WR, Kansas City Chiefs: We’ve talked about Hill a little bit this week as a hot add, and true to form he’s been jumping onto rosters everywhere. He’s coming off a 10.1-point outing against Carolina.
In the last three weeks, Hill has put up double-digits in three of four outings, highlighted by 16.5 points against Indianapolis. He is the WR to add this week heading into a game against the Bucs.
CJ Fiedorowicz, TE, Houston Texans: Over the past several weeks, Fiedorowicz has sucked up a ton of targets. He’s got at least five in his last half-dozen outings, with four of those amounting to seven or more.
Fiedorowicz has put up at least 10.3 fantasy points in three of his last six games, and remains a staple of the Houston offense. He’ll be in Oakland on Monday.
Eli Rogers, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers: Back to Pittsburgh for a moment; let’s check out Rogers. He’s been playing well over the last two weeks, with 10.3 and 10.2 points respectively in his last pair of outings.
The Steelers don’t really have a lot of depth behind Antonio Brown at receiver, so Rogers has had to step up a little lately. He’s answered the call with 15 targets, 10 catches, 145 yards and a TD since the bye.
Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills: We’ll go WR one more time and look at Woods today. He may be out of a lot of owners’ minds coming out of a bye week, but in the appearance before that he managed 10 catches on 13 targets for 162 yards in Seattle.
Woods is basically the No. 1 receiver in Buffalo right now, and he’s sure to continue seeing a lot of work. The matchup against Cincinnati this week isn’t great, but he’s still a nice pickup right now.
