Fantasy Football Week 11 - Waiver Wire Pickups

Must Haves

Danny Amendola (70%) WR Rams - Hey guys, remember him?  Yeah, he played last week and caught an 80 yard bomb in OT that was called back by a stupid illegal formation penalty.  Even without that grab Amendola caught 11 passes for 102 yards.  He just somehow continues to NOT find the endzone.  Either way, a great PPR WR.

Solid Pickups
Andy Dalton (71%) QB Bengals -  Dalton had all day behind his line against a Giants pass rush that is known to knock down QBs.  A matchup with the Chiefs is a blessing in disguise for all the Roethlisberger / Vick owners with no backup plan!

Carson Palmer (58%) QB Raiders - 3 of Palmer's last 5 outings lead to at least 300 passing yards.  One other time he threw for 298.  He is going to throw an interception each week, but he also has multiple TD games the past 3 weeks and a matchup with the Saints secondary.

Darrius Heyward-Bey (55%) WR Raiders - I have never been a fan of the track star, but with his speed he is a deep score waiting to happen.  10 catches for 156 yards in the last 2 weeks and at least 1 30 yard catch per game since week 7 makes DHB a solid pickup this week against the Saints.

Good For A Week

Colin Kaepernick (1%) QB 49ers - If you ever watched him play at Nevada then you would understand why you would want him on your fantasy team.  This guy might be facing the Bears defense but he lead the 49ers to that OT tie going 11 for 17 replacing Alex Smith, who left after being concussed.  Oh yeah, the guy can run!  66 yards on 8 rushing attempts.  With Michael Vick, Big Ben and Alex Smith out this week, on top of Eli Manning Russell Wilson, Christian Ponder and Jake Locker, If Dalton and Palmer are not available, this guy might surprise you!

Marcel Reece (33%) RB Raiders - Rumor has it that Darren McFadden and Mike Goodsen are still in their walking boots!  Reece racked up over 100 all purpose yards while adding 7 receptions!

Players to Watch

Nick Foles (4%) QB Eagles - I wouldn't trust Tom Brady behind that make shift offensive line the Eagles have.  But if Foles does manage to get some time back there, he has a TON of potential.
