Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 11


Did you survive the terrible, no good, very bad six-team bye week?

If so, welcome to the other side, when roster building gets slightly easier going forward. If not, I'm sorry, but you still have time to get things back on the right path. Let's talk about some wide receivers who might be able to help you achieve that goal, although...it's not a great week to be looking for someone.

Not all options are the same. Some players may be better in PPR or deeper leagues, so it’s not a one-size-fits-all comparison. Use your best judgment when deciding which of these players is the right fit for your roster. Check here for a complete list of our Waiver Wire Adds for Week 11 for help at all the skill positions. All players on this list here are around 30% owned or below.

WR Waiver Wire - Free Agents To Consider Adding

Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers - 18% owned

Johnson caught four of his six targets on Sunday for 64 yards. Johnson's been a really boom/bust player this season -- he had just three yards in Week 9, but had 84 yards and a score in Week 8 -- but if you're desperate for receiver help and are willing to deal with the ebbs and flows of Johnson's game, there's some value here.

Nelson Agholor, Philadelphia Eagles - 13% owned

With DeSean Jackson on IR, Agholor -- who was targeted eight times last week -- should step into a larger role again, right? He's been fairly disappointing this year when asked to do more and hasn't found the end zone since Week 3, but the upside is there with Agholor. (The downside and the potential drops are also there, of course.)

Demarcus Robinson, Kansas City Chiefs - 13% owned

Patrick Mahomes is back and he looked to be at full strength. A long, jump pass touchdown to Mecole Hardman will get the most attention, but that came on Hardman's only target. Robinson was targeted five times, catching four for 56 yards. A receiver in this offense always has big play upside, and Robinson is a safer option than Hardman if you want the fourth option in this receiving game.

Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams - 11% owned

Jared Goff was terrible on Sunday in a way that he shouldn't usually be. With Goff struggling, Reynolds still had three catches for 49 yards while being targeted five times. As long as Brandin Cooks (concussion) remains sidelined, Reynolds has value in an offense that should be solid when throwing the football.

Darius Slayton, New York Giants - 10% owned

For the second time in three weeks, Darius Slayton had two touchdowns. But while the first time came in a two-catch game against the Lions, Sunday featured Slayton in an expanded role. He was targeted 14 times, catching 10 of those for 121 yards. I feel like we've all been thinking "hmm, some Giants receiver is worth rostering down the stretch," and we've got signs pointing to Slayton being that guy. (Of course, he's got a Week 11 bye week, so that's not ideal!)

Demaryius Thomas, New York Jets - 8% owned

The veteran receiver caught six passes for 84 yards against the Giants. With quarterback Sam Darnold finally looking like the player he was supposed to be this year, Thomas caught a season-high six passes for an also season-high 84 yards. He's had at least 42 receiving yards in five of the past six games, and if you're in need of a receiver in a deep league who can give you some solid and also unspectacular production, Thomas is worth a look.

James Washington, Pittsburgh Steelers - 8% owned

Washington is finally starting to show that he's got a connection with quarterback and college teammate Mason Rudolph. Washington caught six passes for 90 yards and a touchdown against the Rams, a week after he caught four passes for 69 yards against the Colts. The second-year receiver might be the biggest beneficiary of an increase in passing attempts for Rudolph since the team's Week 7 bye, and he's got some good matchups coming up against the Browns, Bengals, Browns again, and Cardinals.

Andy Isabella, Arizona Cardinals - 1% owned

Is it finally Andy Isabella SZN? Probably not, as he was fourth among the team's receivers in targets in Week 10, but he is making the most of the touches he's getting. Sunday, Isabella caught all three of his targets for 78 yards. Last week, he caught his only target for an 88-yard touchdown. He's caught all six targets this year and gives the Cardinals a YAC receiver. I'd expect his role to continue growing.
