Week 11 WR Waiver Pickups & Adds: Auden Tate a Must Have (PPR FAAB Bids, % Owned)

Looking to gain an edge next season in your fantasy football league? Look no further than the lineups.com fantasy football rankings & projections. They have all the information you need for a successful season. Also, don’t forget to check out our brand new fantasy football defense rankings.

There are a few big names on bye this week, like Tyler Lockett and Davante Adams. The Giants are also on bye, and that is disappointing actually as Golden Tate has been a strong fantasy option since returning from suspension. We will need to continue to watch Adam Thielen’s injury, and the same goes for T.Y. Hilton. Dede Westbrook will likely return, and he was a big target guy in a small sample with Nick Foles. An early look at this week, the Eagles wideouts will face a tough Philadelphia secondary, and the same goes for the Cardinals against San Francisco. To win those fantasy football leagues, you are going to have to win the waiver wire as well. You can find the top wide receivers to pick up by rank for this upcoming week.

DeVante Parker – Miami Dolphins

There was a big ownership jump on DeVante Parker this past week, and that will likely be the case again. While he didn’t find the end zone it was at least another double-digit PPR week and he added in another haul of large targets. He had ten against the Colts, which wasn’t a surprise given Preston Williams is out for the year. Parker is a strong WR3 option or FLEX moving forward, especially those dealing with injuries or bye week problems. Parker has six games in a row with double-digit PPR points, and 34 targets over his last four games.

James Washington – Pittsburgh Steelers

We are not getting a ton of steady production from any of the Pittsburgh players, but James Washington has been trending upwards. I also like the matchups over the next few weeks seeing Cleveland twice, getting Cincinnati, and Arizona. The target share is muddled, but he has 17 targets in the last three games, and 29 PPR points over the last two weeks. Not bad numbers, and Washington should continue to be a fill-in the rest of the way. We are focusing on some deeper league additions this week, and Washington is certainly one of them.

Darius Slayton – New York Giants

Darius Slayton is coming off of a monster week, and this is not the first time he has broken out. He has posted a 2-50-2 game against Detroit, a 3-82-0 game against Tampa, and a 10-121-2 game against the Jets in Week 10. He had 14 targets, and while he is heading into the bye, this creates a potential issue if Sterling Shepard comes back. That will knock Slayton down a bit. He has put up an 18-237-4 line in five games without Shepard this season. He has seen 13 targets in those games, but 14 came last week.

Allen Lazard – Green Bay Packers

Allen Lazard is a big 6’5 wideout and has caught 18 of his 24 targets this season, averaging 12.2 yards per reception. Lazard has created a problem for Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. There weren’t many snaps going their anyway, and now Lazard is in there getting snaps and targets. At the moment he is more of a deep add, or a potential stash for leagues with deep rosters. In terms of targets the rest of the way, I could easily see Lazard being second to Adams. Of course both running backs play a part in the passing game.

Josh Reynolds – Los Angeles Rams

Brandin Cooks has essentially been out the last two weeks getting a concussion a week ago, but has not been cleared yet. Reynolds would go back to being a WR4 on the depth chart when Cooks returns, but we are not quite sure then that is. Over the past two weeks, he has seen 13 targets, and has scored 25.1 PPR points. The Rams are top five in pass plays per game, which is a plus for the volume of an offense that can support a few fantasy wideouts when playing well. Unfortunately the Rams offense has been in a rut at times.

Auden Tate – Cincinnati Bengals

AJ Green’s setback gives me further faith in Auden Tate, although Cincinnati’s quarterback situation is not optimal. He still saw six targets in Week 1, and has not been below that mark since Week 2. Tate leads the Bengals in red zone targets (13), and makes up for 30.2% of the targets inside the 20. Overall this season he has seen 58 targets, and 18% of the team’s target share. Tate has a reasonable schedule the rest of the way, facing Oakland next week, Cleveland twice, the Jets, and Miami. He will have tough games against Pittsburgh and New England, but that is about it.
