Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 11

Michael JenkinsTotal Pro Sports – Earlier in the year he was a joke, but now he could carry your team. When you heard his name you may have thought of the receiver Yancey.  Common mistake. Regardless it is time to pay attention this quarterback from Coastal Carolina. Oh yes boys and girls, Tyler Thigpen. Last week Thigpen threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns against San Diego. Looking ahead, Thigpen toughest match up is Buffalo. With Dwayne Bowe and the emerging Mark Bradley, Thigpen will get to shred New Orleans, Denver and Oakland in the weeks to come.

Here’s some other Fantasy Football Waiver Wire for Week 11.

QB- Tyler Thigpen, KC- Seriously. Look at his schedule.

QB- Matt Hasselbeck, ARI- He’s been forgotten and probably available in your league. Take a flier on this former all-pro. He’s got a nice match up against the Cards.

RB- Peyton Hillis, DEN- Selvin Young? Out. Ryan Torain? Out. Andre Hall? Out. Insert tacky cliché about flies here. Then insert Peyton Hillis. He is their fullback but I bet he gets the most touches this week for the Denver ground game.

WR- Michael Jenkins, ATL- He’s been productive over the past four games. He’ll be up against Denver and will be caught up in a shoot out, which is always a good thing for a receiver.

WR- Mark Bradley, KC- He’s been a stud the last couple of weeks. Over the past three weeks he’s had 188 yards on 18 catches for two touchdowns. And let’s not forget about his cream puff of a schedule.

TE- Mercedes Lewis, JAC- The Jags won’t be able to run this week against the Titans, so expect them to throw and Lewis to get looks. He had a solid game last week against the Lions, four receptions for 64 yards.

K- Rian Lindell, BUF-Sometimes it’s a good idea to add kickers that play in prime time. That way you can be guaranteed a rooting interest . Plus its fun to see the weird looks you get as you root for drives to stall out at the 30-yard line. So this week I’d go with Lindell against the Browns on Monday night.

DEF- If you need someone this week look no further than the 49ers. The match up against the Rams without Stephen Jackson. They’ll put up double digits for you.
