Patrick Mayo, Staff Writer November 9, 2014
FNTSY Sports Network’s Pat Mayo and Evan Tarracciano recap the Week 10 NFL injury report and debate Mayo’s Week 11 Waiver Wire FAAB Rankings. They address how to approach bidding for need versus depth, which defenses and QBs make the best streams and how each player on the Week 11 Waiver wire should be assessed differently based on your roster construction.

UPDATE: Ronnie Hillman will be out at least two weeks with a midfoot sprain. This changes the pickup strategy on the Week 11 Waiver Wire, mainly because we don’t know the status of Montee Ball entering the Broncos’ matchup with the Rams. C.J. Anderson gains short term value for the next few weeks if you need a plug-and-play, but if Ball’s healthy and active this weekend, I’d wager Anderson’s splitting carries, at best. He’s worth an add, and if he plays well, could run away with the gig; however that’s a low probability outcome. In deeper leagues, you may as well snag Juwan Thompson for nothing with all the attention focused on Ball and Anderson. Thompson could sneak his way back into the mix too. Basically, Hillman’s absence gives Ball the opportunity to regain his former starting role and keep it. Wouldn’t it be dandy if your first round pick started delivering first round value? Even if it’s ten weeks after you actually needed it.

Ronnie Hillman injured his foot early, giving C.J. Anderson (not Juwan Thompson) enough leash to rush his way into the Broncos backfield conversat is neither affiliated with the authors of this page nor responsible for its contents. This is a safe-cache copy of the original web site.
