Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 11: Go Prosise

C.J. Prosise (owned in 61% of CBS leagues) had himself a game on Sunday night in his first career start. Prosise had over 150 yards from scrimmage against the Patriots. For perspective, Christine Michael only had more than 100 yards from scrimmage once in the first eight games for the Seahawks while getting the majority of the touches.

Thomas Rawls could be back this week, but he will supplant Michael and get his touches. [note: Michael was just released by the Seahawks, again]. After that performance, Prosise should still be a platoon and primary receiving back option and his emergence added a different element to the offense. He should be the top add this week in leagues where he is available.

Here are the rest of the recommendations:

QUARTERBACKS

Shallow Leagues: Tyrod Taylor (64%) at CIN is the top streaming matchup against the Bengals, and should be considered a low-end QB1 if you have an injury or bye issues.

Average Leagues: Alex Smith (42%) vs TB is the best matchup, though Smith is probably without Jeremy Maclin again.

Deep Leagues: Colin Kaepernick (24%) vs NE is the best option in a start 2 league or if you are in desperate straits.

 

RUNNING BACKS

Shallow: Yes, Rashad Jennings had a better game, but Paul Perkins (56%) continued to see his snap count expand, and has a great matchup against the Bears where he is a flex option.

Average: Kenneth Dixon (39%) had by far his best game, totaling 80 yards against the Browns. It’s a tougher matchup, but Dixon is the receiving back at Dallas and could see action if the Ravens are behind.

Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens

Deep: Dwayne Washington (17%) finally came back from his injury right before the bye, and got 10 carries, and should be a flex option at Jacksonville, and part of a committee going forward.

Damien Williams (10%) has emerged as the backup behind Jay Ajayi, with the renewed emergence of the Dolphins ground game, and would be a good handcuff option.

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

Average and Shallow: Rishard Matthews (48%) has scored 4 touchdowns in the last three games, and has a great matchup at Indianapolis this week.

Deep: Cameron Meredith (27%) and Eddie Royal (13%) stand to benefit from Alshon Jeffrey’s 4-game suspension. Meredith had only one catch last week–the hail mary at the end of the 1st half–but the connection with Jay Cutler will have to improve out of necessity.

Cameron Meredith

Reminder, Robert Woods (24%) had 10 catches for 162 yards in the last game before the bye week, and plays a Bengals team that has given up some big plays.

Pierre Garcon (24%) is a viable starting option vs GB with DeSean Jackson’s injury providing opportunity.

Eli Rogers (23%) has been the 2nd most productive Steelers receiver and gets Cleveland, where points should be plentiful, this week.

 

 

TIGHT ENDS

Shallow: Eric Ebron (56%) is a top ten option going forward and should be a starting option vs the Jaguars.

Average: CJ Fiedorowicz (41%) should be a big part of the attack in Mexico City against the Raiders. He had only 3 catches a week ago but that was his lowest total since week 3.

Deep: Vance McDonald (6%) has been targeted 6 times in each of the last three games with Kaepernick at QB.
