RosterWatch Week 11 Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet Now Available

Byron BylineBuilding a championship-caliber fantasy roster requires basic weekly waiver-wire management. We’ve created the Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet so that in a just a few minutes a week, our users can make the same expert waiver maneuvers we personally make in our own leagues, throughout the season.

Whether you play in a standard waiver-claim format, or in a free-agent bidding system – we’ve got you covered. Read the chart top to bottom, and use it like the Draft Cheat Sheet. It’s not mandatory to go after the very top pick up every single week – use some basic discretion. Insane value can be cultivated through the bottom of the Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet over the course of the season.

All players listed on the WWCS are currently on the waiver wire in at least 50% of fantasy leagues across all major formats.

*Our advice is to recycle an average of 1-2 players per week from the bottom of your roster into hot waiver-wire pickups for the current week. This can be accomplished via waivers, or on the cheap as free-agent pickups post-waiver period .

    I’m in a 1pt PPR and I have a flex question:

    Corey Davis, Samaje Perine, Cooper Kupp or Danny Woodhead (if he plays)?

    1. Let me start by eliminating Woodhead and Perine from the equation. Too early for Woodhead, I want to see him first, so even if he comes back to play, I’d sit him until week 12. I have zero confidence in Perine.

      Kupp provides stability with some upside… but I like Corey Davis for the maximum upside play… I’d roll with Corey Davis (10 targets and a “would be” TD last week that was taken off the board)… Tenn wants this guy to be the #1 and I believe he will be just that.

    2. too early for sit/ starts – prob Davis.

        Normally, I’d agree that it’s too early, but the Titans play Thursday night, so I didn’t want to miss out because I was thinking…

        I concur…

    Fitzgerald, Keenan Allen, Cooks, Engram and Juju. Who is sitting their ass on the bench this week in a standard league?

    1. Tough decision, nice options. In short, I’m sitting Keenan Allen. He looks banged up and Rivers is in the concussion protocol. The Chargers looking awful doesn’t help either. I’m rolling with Fitz, Cooks, Engram and my man JuJu.

      1. Great point- if Rivers is out- the obvious answer is Allen. If Rivers is in, I like Allen at home.

        1. Post By

          I concur again…lol

    2. Keep and eye on rankings- almost certainly Fitz, maybe JuJu

  3. Post By Austin Benedict

    Only sit one

  4. Just made a trade to acquire Tyreek Hill and Buck Allen before our dealine.
    I Haven’t been following the Ravens backfield as of late.
    At there any RB’s on the cheat sheet who you would roster over Allen?
    I’m in a .5 pt PPR and my other RB’s Are Shady & D. Martin.

    1. Prob Williams and McKissic- maybe even a few of the guys below them.

  5. 8-2 1 st place – from your cheat sheets! Trying to Hone for the play-offs
    10 Team PPR Play 1QB 3WR 2RB 1 TE 1 Flex. PPR
    RB: DFreeman, CMcCaffrey, Tev Coleman, DMartin, AlMorris, KDrake. EElliott
    WR: THill, GTate, SDiggs, SShepard, JuJuSmith-Schuster
    TE: Aust Sef-Jenkins

    TE. Greg Olsen on Waiver. Cut ASef-Jenkins and pick up Olsen? Or drop someone else so I can have Olsen ROS? Drop Who? Other TE available are: JThomas, OHoward, CFiedorow,
    In any case I need a TE for this week

    QB Stick with Goff. Or switch, Available on waiver: , McCown, Rivers. Keemun.

    RB (lost Elliott, Freeman hurt, Martin sucks): available are: DHenry DLewis, Burkhead, DWilliams, LatMurray, rodSmith, Dan Woodhead, Mckissic
    Any better for my team? Drop who?

    WR(struggling with my WR2’s) available are: CDavis Agholor, CColeman, Kupp, Golladay, JGordon
    – Any for me? Drop who?

    Thank you for your help!

  6. Stick with Goff, although I like Rivers upcoming schedule pending his concussion situation. Maybe he’d be a good backup- Goff shouldnt be dropped but if he has any horrible upcoming matchups wouldn’t hate matchup playing him with Rivers

    You can drop ASJ

    Love McKissic for this week. With your team Id considering adding Henry in case Murray goes down.

    Grab Davis..

  7. Drop Aaron Jones?

  8. I’m at 3-7, qb is killing me… I’m two games out of playoff spot with 3 games left..
    What should I do. Roll with Mariota? Pickup Keenan? Or trade for Stafford?.

    Trade partner wants a wr 2 or flex
    My rbs- L Miller Drake Collins Abdullah
    Wrs- M Thomas Baldwin Cooks Anderson

    To trade or not to trade?

    Thank you

    1. i might try to move collins. woodhead is coming back, so it means less snaps for collins and allen there.

  9. 12 Team .5 PPR and Marshawn Lynch and Alex Collins on the waiver wire. I’m in 1st and currently best flex options are C.J. Anderson and Agholor.

    For playoff purposes starting Week 14 who would be the top pickup off waivers?

    Jamaal Williams
    Rex Burkhead
    Ekeler (I’m a Gordon owner)

    1. lynch would be first

  10. RW announces that waiver wire for week 11 is posted …..but I can’t find it. Only see week 10.

    1. I am having the same issue as well.

    2. It looks like it just might be mislabeled on the “My Account” page. The PDF for the Waiver Wire Cheat Sheet is for Week 11 once you open it (labeled in bottom right corner).

  11. Oh wise and powerful RosterWatch, because of you I am fighting for the #1 spot in my league and I’ve locked into the playoffs. Thank you!

    Now I don’t know what to do. Standard scoring:

    Drew Brees

    Melvin Gordon
    Alfred Morris
    Rod Smith
    Derrick Henry
    Marlon Mack

    AJ Green
    Devante Parker
    Sterling Shepard
    Keenan Allen

    Jimmy Graham

    Kai Forbath

    First, I can probably grab Jamaal Williams and/or McKissic. I see you prefer both to Rod Smith. What about to Mack? Or who should I drop for those two RBs? Or anyone else I’m a fool for holding onto?

    Second question. I can grab Justin Tucker or Butker. Which do I grab?

    1. you can drop smith for williams. i would go with tucker

  12. Post By

    Hey RW-
    Crowell – Lat Murray or Robert Woods for my flex ? 10 team non PPR. 6 pts for receiving TD and 6 points for rushing TD’s.

    1. woods. hard to trust murray week to week

      1. Post By

        You are the best T-Man !
        Also, would you do Woods over Crowell as well ? Thank you very much !

  13. Dez and Ajayi for Brown? Standard 5-5
    My other wideouts are Crabtree, Julio and funchess
    Other RB’s are Hunt, Gordon and Mixon

    1. i can get behind that trade

  14. Is it just me or is anyone else not seeing the cheat sheet in the download section?

    1. Post By

      It is just you, it is there all right 🙂

  15. Hey Guys-


    J. Cook, K. Allen, or D. Jax in flex?

    is Buck Allen droppable or should i wait and see if woodhead gets hurt again right away.

    thanks- Radio Gold!!!

    1. Woodhead might go down again. He is tiny and old. Right now it’s d jack or cooks but check back a little later in the week for a better answer

  16. Got offered Fournette for Ajayi and Marvin Jones. I’d be receiving Fournette. 1pt ppr. My other RBs are Howard, Lewis, and Booker. My other WRs are Tyreek, DJax, Thielen, and Corey Davis.

    1. Id take it

    2. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’d jump all over that. We still don’t know what Ajayi’s volume is, we know for damn sure what Fournette’s volume is.

  17. Post By

    Got hit by the Watson injury and I’m not sure McCowns schedule is that good for the rest of the season. Does Rivers (if he gets through concussion protocol) have enough upside for the rest of the season to trade either Mixon or montgomery for him?

    Or go for his Rivers and A.J. Green for one of my WR and RB? I think he would take Shephard and Freeman for it.

    Standard Scoring
    RB: Freeman, Howard, Mixon, Montgomery, Woodhead
    WR: Dez, Parker, Shephard, Davis, K.Benjamin
    TE: Gronk, Brate

  18. Appreciate you all!-

    .5 ppr

    Got Kamara and then Duke Johnson or J. Ajayi

    Then at WR

    A. Thielen, M. Evans, Fitz, B. Cooks, K. Allen. (and whatever RB is left from above)

    Need 2 WR’s and a Flex.

    Thanks guys- Love the Pop-Flash-Sizzle!

    1. Can’t sit kamara. Evans then I’m not sure yet

      1. that’s an answer?

        1. James – I would go Thielen, Evans against Miami who just made Funchess look like Randy Moss and in your Flex Kamara. Good Luck!

        2. Post By

          Kamara in the flex Evans and Cooks. If Rivers starts I would be tempted to start Allen. Your call.

  19. Byron/Alex

    Please talk me off the ledge. I went out and made a deal for McCoy and he shit the bed. WTF. Tell me it will get better. Damn it now. Lol

    1. We expect it to reverse itself. Hopefully it was only the blowout that caused Shady to go 50% snap. If he can return to 65%+ down the stretch you will be in good shape. Who the hell else are they going to give the ball to?

  20. Melvin Gordon and Mixon for Todd Gurley?

    1. I would take it if I get the lambo. Make sure you not killing your rb core by giving up two

      1. We love dropping the top on the Lambo and putting pedal to the metal

  21. If your getting Gurley, do
    It. If not, I would not trade Gurley

  22. Post By

    Should I grab Jamaal Williams or Dion Lewis or Baltimore defense for the rest of the year? Should I just stream defense the rest of the year? My backs are:
    C.J. Anderson

    1. Williams

  23. Which def/st would you prefer for rest of season: Saints, Bengals or Cardinals? Thanks

    1. Would have to look at the next 2-3 matchups. Likely NO or CIN

  24. Good stuff in this week’s podcast. Thanks guys. Seattle fan here. Keep an eye on Mike Davis. That just promoted him to the 53 with Prosise on IR. I think he’ll get a good shot at eating the starting role going forward. McKissick is dynamite in the Thompson role.

    I’m sitting on the top priority this week. Not wise to burn it on Latavius, Perine, or Williams? My backs are weak. Ajayi, Mixon, Martin, and Henry 5-5, fighting for the playoffs. 10 teams, no PPR. I’ve already been holding Corey Davis for a few weeks now.

    1. Good stuff, RA. Mike Davis is a guy we thought was a sleeper coming out, sometimes these things come full circle.

      If your RBs are weak, yes use it!

      1. I have no idea how Davis didn’t make the 53 after cutdowns, considering how good he looked all through camp and the preseason games. Almost as baffling as letting Collins go. I hope Davis ignites that ground game here. So, how would you rank those 3 backs? I’ve got Latavius, Perine, Williams. Is that crazy?

        Also I’ve got a trade question for another league. 12 teams full PPR. One WR, One RB, three flex lineup. One player keeper. I was offered Wentz for Hunt, straight across. I drafted Hunt for $1, so ideally he’d be the keeper at the same price next year. Should I pull the trigger? Current team is

        QB: Mariota
        WR: AJ, Evans, Keenan, Thielen, Doctson, Gordon
        RB: Ajayi, Hunt, Howard, Henry, Carson (IR stash, also drafted for $1)

        1. I think you would be pretty crazy not to keep Hunt for a $1 next year. Your other alternatives cant be that great. I have to imagine you paid a good amount for AJ, Evans, and Howard. The value for Hunt next season is way to good to let him go.

  25. Post By

    I really think you should have Rod Smith in front of Alfred Morris. Just fresher legs and he clearly had the rookie jitters. In spite of that he out-snapped Morris 60% to 35% and received 6 targets to none for Morris. Get on that train before it leaves the station!

    Also, watch out for Brandon LaFells at Cinny!

    Go RN

    Any way you could get the endzone targets out sooner………just wondering?


  26. 12 Team .5 PPR
    Need to drop 1.
    CJ Anderson
    D. Henry
    Rod Smith

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      For me it’s Henry. His run volume is already unreliable. He doesn’t do a whole lot of receiving out of the backfield, and he arguably has the tougher schedule ahead compared to the rest.

    2. I have a hard time dropping Henry simply because I have held onto him this long and I would be pissed if I drop him and Murray finally gets hurt. I recently dropped Anderson in a league of mine. I want nothing to do with a RB that is only seeing the field for 33% of snaps

  27. 12 team standard scoring (no PPR)
    2 RBs, 2 WR’s, and 1 Flex (RB/WR)

    RB’s – Howard, Kamara, Dion Lewis, Devonta Freeman
    WR’s – R.Woods, Sterling Shepard, Keenan, Hogan, Diggs

    I know Freeman is out.
    Right now I have Howard and Kamara as the starting RB’s. Woods and Shepard for WR’s and Dion as the flex.

    I think Kamara is a no brainer. I know Shepard and Dion are going against week respective defenses. And woods has been hot… I could go Diggs in the Flex?

    1. I also like diggs in the flex. Check the rankings/trashman’s flex later in the week for better intel.

  28. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

    I like Diggs here.

  29. Having trouble deciding need 3 out of these, .5 ppr and .25 per rush attempt k. Hunt, d. Murray, fournette, l murray, k drake, a Morris. Thinking first 3

  30. Got slammed with the Tyrod news this morning. Serves me right for trying to rely on Buf coaching/front office to apply logic to their decisions…is Tyrod a cut for Hundley or Beathard in a deep league?

    1. If there is anybody else you can drop you may want to see how this all shakes out. Otherwise, if he’s not playing he’s worthless.

    2. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Yeah, if Taylor is not playing (I was a Taylor owner last week), he’s wasting space on your roster.

  31. RW

    Lone Wolf 6-4

    PPR league, do i start Delanie Walker tomorrow night or wait until sunday and go with Vernon Davis even if Reed comes back?

    thanks for the help


    1. i’d hold out for davis

      1. davis it is

        you have been right all year so i am going with you Trashman


        Lone Wolf

  32. Post By Show Me Your TDs

    16 team standard
    RBs: CJA, Drake, Henry, Foreman, Smallwood, Mckissic
    WRs: Julio, AB, K Allen, Alshon, C Davis

    Thoughts on offering Alshon for Lynch? Really need help at RB and I’m trying to work a deal

    1. i think they would take the deal for alshon. you’re deep enough at wr. they might even take allen

  33. Post By

    Need some help:
    I am 3-7 with a decent team who is not consistent.

    10 team PPR keeper league
    2 keepers
    (3rd can be kept for $50 fee and loss of 1st pick)

    I have as potential keepers
    Julio Jones
    K. Allen
    Possibly Funchess

    I have an offer to trade Julio to the top team for

    Beckham and Desean Watson

    If I did that I would probably keep both traded for player and think about keeping a RB as my extra 50$

    1. Would you do Julio for OB & Watson?
    2. Would you rather go with Wentz and Kamara/Howard and roll the dice next year?
    3. Or keep chasing after Julios potential for a 40+ point game.

    1. i would definitely make that trade for ob and watson

      1. Post By

        Thank you sir for the time

  34. 4-6, A team has no name

    Need a win this week to stay alive.

    Pick 3 WR in standard. Crabtree, K. Allen, D. Adams, N. Agholor, S. Watkins or activate D. Westbrook and drop A. Eckler (have M. Gordon though) or R. Smith.

    1. crabtree, allen and adams

  35. Post By

    Hey guys:

    1 pt. PPR league. Start Big Ben tomorrow or start Goff Sunday or pick up Cousins off waivers and start him. Also need 4 of 6 , D Hop, T Hill, Crabtree, M Thomas, Thielen, or Kelvin B.?

  36. PPR RB 2 T Coleman or Demarco Murray?

  37. The Seahawks were great against the run last week and bottling up Adrian Peterson, but I think that without Richard Sherman Tevin Coleman should find more success. Last week was pretty fluke for Demarco: he still only had 42 rushing yards.

  38. I have Thielen who’s on my bench behind Hopkins and AJ Green. Someone offered me Lamar Miller. My backs are Darkwa and Gordon.

  39. I have Adam Thielen on my bench along with Maclin and Corey Davis. I’m starting Hopkins and AJ Green. Somebody offered me Lamar Miller for Thielen. My backs are Gordon and Darkwa. Is Lamar Miller for Thielen a trade worth taking?

    1. Yes. You have good depth at WR.

  40. I thought. Thanks a lot. Pro membership has me cashing in dfs and clinched a playoff spot as well.

  41. Alex/Byron

    You guys have been saying get rid of Hopkins. I have a few deals on the table but one for one’s.

    Hopkins for Thielen( might be able to get Hyde or Ty Hilton)

    Hopkins for M Thomas

    Hopkins for Baldwin

  42. In a ppr, would you drop Rawls for Mckissic and going forward so you prefer Crowder or Doctson? Thanks guys

  43. With Hyde and McCaffrey on bye need 2 rb’s from Williams, Collins, Perine, Eckler, Duke, or White thank you very much!
