Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Adds After Week 11

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Jonathan Williams (RB, Indianapolis Colts)

ESPN ownership: 0%

Week 11 stats: 13 carries, 116 rushing yards; 1 reception, 31 receiving yards

That's right Jonathan Williams, who is rostered in 0% of ESPN leagues and had only 1 yard this season entering today, is a must add in all leagues. Williams stepped into the lead back role after Marlon Mack exited Sunday's game against Jacksonville with a broken hand. Williams made the most of his opportunity recording 116 rushing yards on 13 carries.

Mack has already been ruled out of Thursday night's game against the Texans and will likely miss more time. Williams is a weekly starting option as long as Mack is out.

Jeff Driskel (QB, Detroit Lions)

ESPN ownership: 2.3%

Week 11 stats: 209 passing yards, 2 touchdowns; 51 rushing yards, 1 touchdown

With Matthew Stafford sidelined, Jeff Driskel has surprisingly provided good fantasy production as the starting quarterback. He currently has the 5th highest point total among quarterbacks this week. His rushing numbers have played a large role in that with Driskel recording 88 yards on the ground and a touchdown in two starts. A matchup with the Washington Redskins next week only bodes well for his potential production.

Stafford is expected to miss the next few weeks, and Driskel is still available in 97.7% of leagues. He should be immediately rostered in deeper leagues and 2 quarterback leagues. He is also worth a look next week as a streaming option if you need a starting quarterback.

DeVante Parker (WR, Miami Dolphins)

ESPN ownership: 44.7%

Week 11 stats: 7 receptions, 135 yards

I have been endorsing DeVante Parker for a while now. In fact, this is the 3rd time that I've included him on my weekly waiver wire adds, but he is simply not being rostered enough. This week, Parker had a season-high 135 yards against the Bills. Despite a subpar quarterback situation, Parker has not had less than 50 receiving yards in a game since Week 6. He also has 4 touchdowns in his past 7 games. Here is his upcoming schedule for the next 5 weeks: Browns (without Myles Garrett), Eagles, Jets, Giants, Bengals.

All season long, Parker has been a high floor flex play, but he continues to improve as the season progresses. With an easier stretch of games ahead of him, Parker is a must add in all leagues.
