Wk 11 Waiver Wire: WR – Ryan Skolrud

by Ryan Skolrud

While injuries have thinned out many of the viable fantasy options on the waiver wire, there still remains a few players with the opportunity to help your fantasy team. Let’s take a look at a few of the options for week 11:

Chris Godwin – Owned in 42.2% of ESPN leagues

Though Godwin has had his ups and downs throughout the season, he has been a solid flex play in PPR leagues throughout 2018. He has proven to be a solid receiver that can be extremely productive with three receptions or more in a game. In the three games this season in which he has had only two receptions he is finished with 4.2 points, 7.2 points, and 6.0 points. In any game in which he has at least three receptions he has yet to finish with less than 10.9 fantasy points in a game. With Ryan Fitzpatrick being named the starter again in week 11, and the absolute lack of running game from the Buccaneers, look for Godwin to have another Flex-worthy game with some easier matchups down the road.

Tyrell Williams – Owned in 35.8% of leagues

Williams is as close to a boom or bust play as you can get. While he has shown production in three games so far this season he has yet to have more than four catches and is basically limited to catching the deep ball. Williams would need an injury to Keenan Allen in order to have a higher fantasy floor then he currently has. If you need the wide receiver help, pick up Williams with the understanding that it could be feast or famine with him in your lineup.

John Ross – Owned in 17.6% of leagues

Over his two seasons in the NFL so far Ross has shown an inability to stay healthy for long periods of time. He had the same issues when he was playing at the University of Washington. That being said, with AJ Green likely to be out until December, the second-year wide receiver finds himself with an opportunity to prove some of his critics wrong. With only 10 catches on the season Ross has managed to get into the end zone three times. While I would not count on that ratio to continue, Ross should provide boom or bust Flex value during these last couple bye weeks.

Maurice Harris – Owned in 9.7% of leagues

Harris’ production is almost solely tied to the health of Jamison Crowder. In the two games that Crowder has missed Maurice Harris has finished with a combined 15 catches for 176 yards. If Crowder again misses week 11, Maurice Harris should have a solid floor as a wide receiver flex play in PPR leagues. If Crowder is healthy to play in week 11 leave Harris alone as he is only averaging 3 catches for about 25 yards in games where Crowder has started.

Josh Reynolds – Owned in 1.1% of leagues

The only reason for Reynolds being so low on this list is his ownership percentage. With Cooper Kupp missing the rest of the season on injured reserve, Josh Reynolds steps into a huge opportunity. The Rams run 3 wide receiver sets in over 90% of the place that they call which means Reynolds we’ll be seeing a lot of time on the field. He is already shown some ability to produce in his first couple years when the opportunity presents itself. In 2017 Reynolds finished with 8 catches for 60 yards and a touchdown over the three week stretch when Robert Woods missed time with a shoulder injury. In the two games that Cooper Kupp missed this year Reynolds has finished with four receptions for 61 yards and 2 touchdowns. Look for Reynolds to provide decent Flex value with the opportunities presented to him for the remainder of the season in a high-powered Rams offense.
