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 wide receiver waiver-wire options to consider heading into Week 11 (Yahoo! % rostered in parenthesis):
[Note: Players listed below are sorted by our preference to add.]
1. Jakobi Meyers, New England Patriots (48%)
While he won't throw touchdown passes every week, Meyers has proved to be a viable receiver in a passing offense that generally scares nobody. Over the past four weeks, Meyers has a minimum of six targets, four catches and 58 yards in all four games. During that four-game stretch, he has a total of 27 receptions for 346 yards on 37 targets.
Meyers and the Patriots receivers get plus matchups in each of the next two weeks with Houston Texans and Arizona Cardinals coming up on their schedule.
2. Michael Pittman Jr., Indianapolis Colts (9%)
Since returning from injury, Pittman, the 34th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, has been more and more involved in the offense. One week after posting four catches for 56 yards on seven targets against Baltimore, Pittman had seven catches for 101 yards on eight targets and added a 21-yard run against Tennessee.
The matchup against the Packers is better for the team's running backs in Week 11, but beyond that matchup, the receivers have a favorable stretch of games against the Titans, Texans, Raiders, Texans and Steelers.
3. Jalen Reagor, Philadelphia Eagles (26%)
With Carson Wentz at the helm, it's difficult to have too much confidence in the team's now healthier collection of pass-catchers. That said, Philadelphia's first-round pick had a team-high seven targets that he turned into four catches for 47 yards in Week 10. Reagor now has at least six targets in back-to-back games.
The team gets a pair of favorable matchups over the next two weeks against the Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks, respectively. Based on games through Sunday, the Browns have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game and the Seahawks the most to the position this season.
4. Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams (5%)
Targeted a team-high 10 times in Week 10, Reynolds had eight receptions for 94 yards, which were also team highs. Over the past three games, Reynolds has been targeted 27 times. Only Cooper Kupp (34) has more targets over that span. With a minimum of 44 yards in five consecutive games, Reynolds has scored double-digit fantasy points in three of his past four games.
While Reynolds isn't yet a weekly WR3, he could return WR3 value in games where the Rams need to keep up with high-powered offenses like Tampa Bay (Week 11), Arizona (Week 13), Seattle (Week 16) and Arizona (Week 17).
5. Cam Sims, Washington Football Team (0%)
One week after finishing with three catches for 110 yards, Sims set season highs in targets (five) and receptions (four) as he finished with 54 yards. Washington has a pair of favorable upcoming matchups against the Cincinnati Bengals (Week 11) and Dallas Cowboys (Week 12).
