Paralysis by analysis is the name of the game, and the proof is always in the pudding. My guess is you didn’t come here for me to tell you who to spend your FAAB or waiver priority on based on my opinion. Risers want the cold hard facts, and here they are for my top 4 pickups heading into week 11.
RB Nyheim Hines (IND)
In week 10 against the Titans, he led the team with 12 carries for 70 rushing yards and a TD on the ground. He also added 5 catches for 45 yards and a TD through the air.
His 12 carries were a season-high.
His schedule is an absolute joke with 5 straight matchups against teams ranked in the bottom 10 against the run, with formidable offenses that could tilt the game script in his favor as a receiver out of the backfield.
This backfield is still a committee but he’s the go-to in the passing game and appeared to be the only back on this team able to convert a short-yardage run or goal-line carry last week.
Hines is my top pickup of the week, due to his defined role and the fact that his snaps may increase after handily outplaying backfield mates Taylor and Wilkins last week.
RB Salvon Ahmed (MIA)
Strong week 10 against the Chargers, rushed for 85 yards and a TD on 23 carries.
Commanded 84 percent of Miami’s rush attempts and ran 15 routes.
Gaskin is out a few more weeks. Howard was a healthy scratch in week 10 and Breida wasn’t healthy enough to suit up.
His schedule forecasts run-friendly game scripts for the next 3 few weeks, and matchups against teams ranked in the bottom 10 against the run in 5 out of the next 6 games.
The threat of Gaskin and Breida’s return looms but Ahmed could remain the lead back for the next few games and could maintain a role upon their return.
WR Michael Pittman Jr. (IND)
Lead the Colts with 7 catches for 101 yards in week 10.
Has been lining up as nearly an every-down WR for 2 weeks in a row.
His performance was unaffected by the return of TY Hilton.
Colts have one of the easiest schedules for WRs coming up after they play the Packers next week.
Week 12 @ Titans (ranked 27th against WRs)
Week 13 @ Texans (ranked 25th against WRs)
Week 14 @ Raiders (ranked 16th against WRs)
Week 15 vs Texans (ranked 25th against WRs)
Week 16 @ Pittsburgh (ranked 23rd against WRs)
I am picking him up as a WR3 going forward.
WR Jalen Reagor (PHI)
Scored a TD in week 8, his first game back after missing 5 games due to injury.
Has seen his target share increase from 6 looks in week 8 to 7 in week 10.
Paced the eagles WR corps with 4 catches and a team-leading 47 yards in Week 10.
Attractive upcoming schedule with winnable matchups in weeks 11, 12, 14, 15, and a matchup with the Dallas Cowboys secondary constructed of traffic cones and cardboard standups for the fantasy championships in Week 16.
Reagor is on the flex radar for me but should be picked up in 12 team leagues with the expectation that Wentz may be able to turn his season around in the second half.
