Seven Waiver Wire Adds for Week 11

With a mostly barren free agency pool, Jacob Adler recommends the top picks for Week 11.

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

If you took my advice last week, I hope it was on Kirk Cousins and Matt Jones. While some other players featured in last week's column achieved moderate success, Cousins and Jones both blew up on the Saints. I eventually grew bullish enough on Jones to play him in DFS head-to-heads, a move that paid off. After a strange, strange Week 10, let's hope Week 11 is more predictable from a fantasy standpoint.

Danny Amendola, Patriots

There you go. The only must-add of the week is Danny Amendola, who returns to relevancy with the news that Julian Edelman's foot surgery will keep him out for the rest of the regular season. Amendola was already expected to take hold of more target volume to make up for the loss of Dion Lewis, and is now a surefire WR2 and possible low-end WR1. There's always injury risk, but Amendola is a potential league-winner.

Tony Romo, Cowboys

If available, Tony Romo is the clear top quarterback add of the week. No explanation should be needed for this one.

Matt Jones, Redskins

WARNING! WARNING! Prepare to be disappointed. Matt Jones has a brutal schedule the rest of the way, with the only matchup I'd be inclined to use him being Chicago in Week 14. He's a game flow player, and a clear sell in my eyes after a monster game beating up on New Orleans.

Doug Baldwin, Seahawks

Seven catches for 134 yards and one touchdown is going to be the best game of Doug Baldwin's season, but easy matchups down the stretch with San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Cleveland have me intrigued. A turnaround for the Seattle passing game could lead to low-end flex value for Baldwin or even Tyler Lockett.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jets

Revenge game! Although Houston just shut down the Cincinnati passing game, I'm sure many remember Ryan Fitzpatrick's 2014 game against his former team in the Tennessee Titans. He threw for 358 yards and six touchdowns, if you didn't recall. Houston has been burned by not-so-great teams such as Atlanta and Miami, and it wouldn't surprise me if this one turned into a blowout.

Kamar Aiken/Chris Givens, Ravens

No, he's not exciting, but Kamar Aiken had seven catches for 73 yards in a piece-of-cake matchup with Jacksonville in Week 10. I'm willing to give Aiken a week or two longer to monitor his target volume. Also in the Baltimore receiving corps is Chris Givens, who had a touchdown this past week. Givens could never get it going in St. Louis but certainly has upside as a deep threat given Joe Flacco's ability to throw the deep ball.

Eric Ebron, Lions

A tight end against Oakland? Sign me up. While Oakland hasn't been as bad against the tight end as many believe, the over/under is 47.5 on Pinnacle Sports and Detroit should be able to score this week with ease.

Also consider: Jay Ajayi, Mark Sanchez, Brock Osweiler, Jamison Crowder
