Fantasy Football 2017: Week 11 Waiver Wire
The Trending Waiver Wire Pickups and Sleepers in Fantasy Football Week 11
November 14, 2017
Now that all the weekend NFL games are in the rearview, we’re heading into Week 11 in fantasy football. That means we’ve got a fresh crop of waiver wire adds for you to peruse, so let’s visit with a few of the trending names out there.
Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers: Green Bay had to go pretty far down the depth chart this past week with Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery banged up, but Williams made the most of it with 67 yards and 7.4 fantasy points on 20 rushes.

The Packers really don’t have anyone else to look to, so Williams should continue to see a healthy amount of snaps. He gets the vulnerable Ravens rush defense this week.
Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers: Ekeler came from out of nowhere this past week against Jacksonville, putting up 21.9 fantasy points from 77 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
In all, Ekeler got 15 touches (to Melvin Gordon’s 21) and the team was going with him late until a fumble that could have turned out very costly. Going into the Bills game, Ekeler has some decent low-end value as a flex guy.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots: Let’s go RB one more time and look at Burkhead, who is coming off 12.3 fantasy points against the Broncos. He bagged three catches for 27 yards and a TD in that one.
Burkhead was the leader in RB snaps with 36, and managed 13 touches overall. He’s been showcasing his stuff lately and has found a niche in the Pats’ offensive plans. He’ll see the Raiders this week.
Case Keenum, QB, Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings kept rolling with their fifth straight win on Sunday, edging the Redskins thanks to Keenum’s 304 yards and four touchdowns.
That performance added up to 26.06 fantasy points for Keenum, which was actually just his second-best this season. Teddy Bridgewater is lurking around here and could conceivably slip in as the starter, but for now Keenum is a good streaming option against the Rams.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, Chicago Bears: WR has been a tough spot to get right this year, but Inman showed some promise in his last game against the Packers with eight targets, six catches and 88 yards.
Those eight targets were tied for the team lead, and Inman led the bears in receiving. He’s widely available in just about every league, and even though the Bears are a run-heavy team Inman has some low-end fantasy value if you’re hurting for WRs.
