Every week, we examine players that may be available on your league's waiver wire that could help your team in the short and/or long term.
For a player to be listed, he must be owned in 50 percent (or less) of Yahoo! leagues. The goal is to provide recommendations of players that have a greater chance of being available on your league's waiver wire. Of course, your league's size and settings could significantly impact whether these players (or better options) are available in your particular league(s).
With that said, here are some tight end waiver-wire options to consider heading into Week 11 (Yahoo! % rostered in parenthesis):
[Note: Players listed below are sorted by our preference to add.]
Thomas entered the season as a sleeper and pardon the corny joke, but he's starting to wake up. Thomas had four catches for a season-high 66 yards on six targets in Week 10. The former quarterback now has both of his 60-yard games this season over his past three games.
While he's had some of his better performances of the season recently, Thomas has been steady throughout the year. Thomas has a minimum of four targets in every game and ranks ninth among the position in targets (52) through Sunday's games.
Over the next two weeks, Washington faces the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys. The Bengals have allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends and Thomas had 4/60/1 against the Cowboys in Week 7.
With George Kittle out, Reed should be a big factor in the passing offense down the stretch if he can stay healthy. While his first game back (one three-yard catch in Week 9) was a disappointment, Reed was more involved and productive in Week 10 with five catches for 62 yards on six targets. Only Brandon Aiyuk (seven) had more targets this week. Reed and the 49ers have a Week 11 bye.
Since losing Dak Prescott for the season, the offense has been a shell of its former self and will continue to be a bottom-half unit for the rest of the season. One positive for Schultz, however, is that he had a total of 15 targets in the past two games, which he converted into 10 catches for 101 yards. Coming off the team's bye, the next four games feature positive matchups.
