If you need a new starting quarterback, this is a good week to find one off of the waiver wire. It looks like Peyton Manning, Sam Bradford and possibly Brian Hoyer will all miss week 11, opening up the starting job for their respective backups.
For the immediate future, I would feel safest starting Mark Sanchez over both Brock Osweiler and T.J. Yates. Osweiler definitely has the best arm and weapons of the bunch, but I’m not so sure I trust him in his first start.
Even though Osweiler does have a few years experience learning behind Peyton Manning, Mark Sanchez has actually performed well and started nine games for the Eagles. Sanchez knows the offense, knows the NFL and has in-game rapport with his receivers.
Many will probably be oozing over the potential big game from Osweiler, but I say play it safe, and Sanchez will reward you with at least 15 to 18 points.
There really wasn’t a running back that is sitting on your waiver wire that you should be getting excited about for week 11. Sure Matt Jones posted a huge game with 187 yards on 14 touches, but Alfred Morris also performed well. Jones likely won’t be in for a huge workload against the Carolina Panthers and will need another big play to be reliable in fantasy.
Amendola averages right around 10 targets per game and Amendola should see exactly the same workload that he was getting. Honestly, I don’t really expect much of a dropoff, Edelman should slide into your roster and be a high-end WR2.
