Fantasy Football Update 11/14/16: Week 11 Waiver Wire Picks
Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Picks for Week 11
November 14, 2016
We’ve reached another “overreaction Monday” in the NFL, and that enthusiasm will spill over onto the fantasy football waiver wire as we head into Week 11. Let’s take our biweekly look at the trending players out there and see if anyone’s worth putting a claim on.
Adam Vinatieri, K, Indianapolis Colts: Not surprisingly, the top waiver wire add this morning seems to be Vinatieri. He’s coming out of a bye last week and was jettisoned in many leagues to make room for a new foot, and would make a great upgrade at K if you need one.

Vinatieri is nearly automatic on field goals, and he’s hit double-digits in fantasy six times this year, including a 23-point performance in Week 5.
Miami Dolphins Defense: The Dolphins are also being added in a lot of leagues today, as their defense is suddenly a force to be reckoned with in fantasy. Miami is coming off 17 points against San Diego, with three sacks, four interceptions and a TD.
That gives the Dolphins D 30 points in the last two weeks. They get a nice matchup this weekend against the Rams as well, then San Fran and Baltimore after that.
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seattle Seahawks: If you’re in need of some RB help (and who isn’t?), Rawls is probably the guy to look at this week. He’s got a real chance of coming back Sunday against the Eagles.
With Christine Michael not doing so well, the Seahawks will likely install Rawls as the No. 1 back as soon as he’s healthy. He’s still available in over half the fantasy leagues out there, too.
Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills: Another guy coming out of a bye week who needs attention is Woods. He’s coming off a great game in Seattle against a tough defense with 13 targets, 10 catches and 162 yards.
Woods is a solid possession receiver, and he should see plenty of work in the Bills’ game in Cincinnati this weekend.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers: The Packers have lost four of their last five games, but Starks could be a diamond in the rough for fantasy owners. He bagged 10.4 fantasy points in a loss against a good Titans D.
Starks played 55 of 78 offensive snaps this week, which could indicate a shift away from Ty Montgomery. He’s a low-end play, sure, but might work if you’re needy.
