Top Waiver Wire Options

Keaton Mitchell runs with space around him

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals QB

Forty-one percent of current Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB)

Kyler Murray remains available in more than 46 percent of ESPN leagues. He is an elite, dual-threat QB1 moving forward.

Trey McBride, Arizona Cardinals TE

Thirty-five percent of current FAAB

Trey McBride remains available in at least 41 percent of Yahoo and ESPN leagues. His 28 targets in Weeks 8-10 are No. 2 at the position. He impressively totaled eight receptions and 131 yards receiving in Murray’s Week 10 return. 

Devin Singletary, Houston Texans RB 

Twenty-six percent of current FAAB

Houston Texans coach DeMeco Ryans trusted fill-in starter Devin Singletary with 30 rushing attempts and two targets in Week 10. He should retain a prominent role regardless of Dameon Pierce’s (ankle) availability moving forward.

Ty Chandler, Minnesota Vikings RB

Twenty-four percent of current FAAB

Backup RB Ty Chandler is slated to start in Week 11 — and potentially in Week 12. No. 1 RB Alexander Mattison suffered a Week 10 concussion, and running backs average 1.8 games missed due to the injury, per Doctor of Physical Therapy Adam Hutchison’s Injury Report. This is Mattison’s second recorded concussion. 

Keaton Mitchell, Baltimore Ravens RB 

Twenty-one percent of current FAAB

Diminutive rookie RB Keaton Mitchell remained an explosive playmaker for the second straight week, assuaging concerns over his nagging hamstring strain. 

Demario Douglas, New England Patriots WR

Eighteen percent of current FAAB

As detailed in “Takeaways From Every Week 10 Game,” rookie slot WR Demario Douglas is playing exceptionally well in his recently expanded role. The New England Patriots’ rest-of-season schedule following their Week 11 bye is extremely fantasy-friendly. 

Joshua Dobbs, Minnesota Vikings QB 

Fourteen percent of current FAAB

Joshua Dobbs is averaging 25.02 fantasy points per game with his new team, the fourth-highest per-game average among NFL quarterbacks in Weeks 9-10. The dual-threat quarterback and the Minnesota Vikings get the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears in Weeks 11-12.

Michael Wilson, Arizona Cardinals WR

Fourteen percent of current FAAB

Murray’s exciting Week 10 return to the lineup elevates rookie X WR Michael Wilson to matchup-based flex status. The Arizona Cardinals’ schedule is dotted with soft pass defenses.

Noah Brown, Houston Texans WR

Fourteen percent of current FAAB

The Houston Texans’ No. 1 WR, Nico Collins, was sidelined due to a Week 9 calf strain, and No. 2 WR Tank Dell briefly exited Week 10’s game following a big hit. No. 3 WR Noah Brown is averaging 25.75 PPR points per game over the last two weeks, the fourth-most among NFL wide receivers.

Brandin Cooks, Dallas Cowboys WR

Twelve percent of current FAAB

The Dallas Cowboys have fielded the league’s most fantasy-friendly passing offense over the last three weeks, and No. 2 WR Brandin Cooks remains widely available.

Rashee Rice, Kansas City WR

Nine percent of current FAAB

The Kansas City Chiefs’ Week 10 bye allowed them to further incorporate promising rookie WR Rashee Rice into the game plan. 

Zach Charbonnet, Seattle Seahawks RB 

Six percent of current FAAB

No. 2 RB Zach Charbonnet’s role continues to increase.

D’Onta Foreman, Chicago Bears

Four percent of current FAAB

No. 1 RB Khalil Herbert (high-ankle sprain) is expected to return from a five-week absence in Week 11. Still, backup RB D’Onta Foreman has played very well in his stead, averaging 14.16 PPR points per game since Herbert’s injury, No. 16 in per-game running back scoring. Foreman is worth a contrarian add where available and should be a post-waiver-wire, free-agent target later in the week.

Stash These Players Now

Los Angeles Chargers WR Quentin Johnston is wide open for the touchdown

Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints QB

Two percent of current FAAB

The New Orleans Saints’ Week 11 bye gives coach Dennis Allen ample time to alter the offense, should he choose to bench injured starting QB Derek Carr in favor of backup QB Jameis Winston.

Jalen Guyton, Los Angeles Chargers WR

Four percent of current FAAB

Jalen Guyton vies for the No. 3 pass-catcher role in the Los Angeles Chargers’  banged-up pass-catching corps.

Quentin Johnston, Los Angeles Chargers WR

Four percent of current FAAB

Rookie WR Quentin Johnston continues to receive opportunities.

Rashid Shaheed, New Orleans Saints WR

Four percent of current FAAB

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas suffered a “fairly significant” Week 10 nonspecific knee injury. No. 2 WR Rashid Shaheed now has reliable access to two-wide receiver sets. Wide receivers average 2.2 games missed due to nonspecific knee injury. Shaheed can be stashed on winning teams through New Orleans’ Week 11 bye.

Antonio Gibson, Washington Commanders RB

Four percent of current FAAB

Antonio Gibson has earned at least five targets in each of the past three games. 

Kenneth Gainwell, Philadelphia Eagles RB 

Two percent of current FAAB

Backup RB Kenneth Gainwell is a high-upside bench stash. 

Rico Dowdle, Dallas Cowboys RB 

Two percent of current FAAB

Backup RB Rico Dowdle is a high-upside bench stash. 

Kyle Philips, Tennessee Titans WR

One percent of current FAAB

Slot WR Kyle Philips is averaging 3.15 YPRR over the past two weeks.

A.T. Perry, New Orleans Saints WR 

Zero percent of current FAAB

The Saints’ 6-foot-5, 205-pound rookie WR A.T. Perry could replace Thomas (knee) as a big-bodied possession receiver.

Dontayvion Wicks, Green Bay Packers WR

Zero percent of current FAAB

Dontayvion Wicks is averaging 2.86 YPRR over the past two weeks.

Green Bay Packers TE Luke Musgrave runs with the ball after a catch


Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos (vs. Minnesota Vikings)

Five percent of current FAAB

Russell Wilson faces a soft Vikings pass defense that lost starting cornerback Akayleb Evans to a Week 10 calf strain. 

Tight Ends

Luke Musgrave, Green Bay Packers (vs. Los Angeles Chargers)

Five percent of current FAAB

Luke Musgrave is one of 19 tight ends to earn at least eight targets over the last two weeks, and his 2.05 YPRR during that span ranks seventh. The Chargers’ 78.7 percent catch rate allowed to the position ranks 27th among NFL teams.


Matt Amendola, Houston Texans (vs. Arizona Cardinals)

Five percent of current FAAB

Bidding competition for Texans replacement K Matt Amendola will likely be high following his winning field goal vs. the Cincinnati Bengals. Houston’s potent offense and fantasy-friendly rest-of-season schedule help insulate Amendola as a weekly starter. Fantasy managers should note Houston faces the Cleveland Browns’ elite defense in Week 16, but Houston’s Week 11 matchup against the Cardinals should yield top-tier results. 

Jason Sanders, Miami Dolphins (vs. Las Vegas Raiders)

Four percent of current FAAB

The Miami Dolphins’ offense famously plays well against sub-.500 win-loss-record opponents. Miami faces four such opponents following its Week 11 game against the 5-5 Las Vegas Raiders.


Miami Dolphins D/ST (vs. Las Vegas Raiders)

Eight percent of current FAAB

The Dolphins’ secondary entered Week 10 nursing multiple injuries. Now healthy, the unit is ready to prey on the Raiders’ newly installed QB Aidan O’Connell

Detroit Lions D/ST (vs. Chicago Bears)

Six percent of current FAAB

The Detroit Lions opened as a 9.5-point home favorite over the Chicago Bears. Detroit’s defense will face either backup QB Tyson Bagent or sack-prone starter Justin Fields, who will return from a sprained UCL thumb ligament on his throwing hand. 

Looking Ahead to Week 12

Detroit Lions D/ST vs. Green Bay Packers

Six percent of current FAAB

Detroit offers multi-week usage with the division rival Green Bay Packers coming to town in Week 12. QB Jordan Love’s mid-tier six percent sack rate and near-league-high 1.11 interceptions thrown per game increase Detroit’s scoring potential.
