Every week, Nate Hamilton will cover fantasy football waiver wire pickups. Read his Week 11 Waiver Wire picks and FAAB tips (Free-Agent Acquisition Budget) for fantasy football.

DomiNate the Waiver Wire for Week 11

Every week it’s the same thing. We inch closer to the fantasy playoffs and viable players remain on the waiver wire. Maybe these players just performed well the week prior, or possibly, they have been overlooked in your leagues. Either way, it’s time to look at your teams and see who should be dropped for the names below.

I will include a dollar range of your free agent acquisition budget (FAAB) that you should consider bidding for each player.

(Note: Roster % is as listed for Yahoo! Fantasy leagues. FAAB bid range is based on a $100 budget.)

Week 11 Waiver Wire Fantasy Football Pickups

Willie Snead IV, WR, Baltimore Ravens (rostered 1%)

The Ravens’ passing attack isn’t something to pay too much for, but Willie Snead has been productive in recent weeks from a fantasy standpoint. In his last three games, Snead has totaled 14 receptions on 18 targets for 207 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns.

Yes, both of those scores came in Week 10, but he did have 106 receiving yards in Week 8.

Willie Snead leads all Ravens wideouts in targets, receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns in the last three weeks and it’s honestly not even close. It’s surprising he is only rostered in 1% of leagues right now.

  • Willie Snead IV FAAB bid range: $9-$14


Devontae Booker, RB, Las Vegas Raiders (3%)

Devontae Booker has been a good surprise for the Las Vegas Raiders’ backfield. In the last two weeks, Booker has a combined 24 carries for 149 rush yards and two touchdowns.

Although he’s been very productive with his workload, his 16 carries in Week 10 was likely a result of game script. The Raiders had a decent lead on the Broncos, and Booker saw more carries to spell Josh Jacobs in the fourth quarter when the game was out of reach.

Either way, it’s not easy finding depth at running back, and now that he’s leapfrogged Jalen Richard as Vegas’ No. 2 back, Devontae Booker could provide upside in your flex spot moving forward.

  • Devontae Booker FAAB bid range: $5-$8


Marvin Hall, WR, Detroit Lions (1%)

Marvin Hall has seen an increased target share with Kenny Golladay out due to a hip injury. He’s caught 9 of his 15 targets for 202 yards and a touchdown in his last 3 games.

Even when Golladay returns, Hall has established a connection with Matthew Stafford and earned more targets going forward. It is important to be cautious with your FAAB. I’d add him for cheap and see what his workload looks like when Golladay is back on the field.

  • Marvin Hall FAAB bid range: $3-$6


Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups: Josh Reynolds would give fantasy football teams quietly useful stability for the playoffs

Josh Reynolds, WR, Los Angeles Rams (5%)

Josh Reynolds has been an “under the radar" consistent wide receiver this season. He’s had four or more targets in every game since Week 3. More importantly, he has seen an increase in targets in each of the last 5 games, including double-digit looks in Week 10.

You may not be in love with starting him because he hasn’t had a “monster" game this year, but he is trending in the right direction. This is the type of player you want to add to beef up your playoff roster before everyone else does.

  • Josh Reynolds FAAB bid range: $3-$6


Week 10 Waiver Wire: Adds for Deep Leagues ($1-$6 FAAB)

Malcolm Brown, RB, Los Angeles Rams (25%)

There is no doubt that the Rams’ backfield is a committee. Malcolm Brown has been efficient with his touches in the last three games, though. He had back to back weeks with double-digit carries in weeks seven and eight and scored twice in Week 10 against Seattle.

He now has three touchdowns in the last three games. Although he isn’t getting crazy volume, he still presents plenty of upside from a touchdown perspective. Touchdowns are difficult to rely on, yet Brown should get his fair share of scoring opportunities in the Rams’ offense.

[esi cache="public" adrotate group="1" ttl="60"]


Salvon Ahmed, RB, Miami Dolphins (6%)

Salvon Ahmed stepped on the scene in Week 9 and has since led the Dolphins’ running backs in snaps, yards, and fantasy points. He completely took over in Week 10 with 21 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown.

The Dolphins just released running back Jordan Howard following the Week 10 game, when he was a healthy scratch.

This only means more playing time and that Ahmed has a chance to take over at least a share of the running back position. That workload will be bigger as long as Myles Gaskin remains on Injured Reserve; he could return in Week 12.

Ahmed has shown the Dolphins coaching staff enough for them to let go of Howard. He may have just earned more touches even if/when Gaskin returns from injury and looks to have a better chance at supplanting an active Matt Breida (hamstring); the offseason signing has fallen short of expectations this year.

Even in a part-time role, Ahmed could be a valuable fantasy pickup for down the stretch.
