Here are the top Week 11 Waiver Wire Adds. Don’t sleep on the waiver wire process, folks. Each and every week, that surprise gem could be sitting on waivers, and if you sleep on the weekly waiver wire process, you might kick yourself later realizing what player slipped through your grasp!

Update 11/15/16 – Two players are to be added due to injury/news that broke today. Althon Jeffery has been suspended for four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Cameron Meredith has sneaky-good WR3-type upside for that timespan. Rob Gronkowski may have punctured a lung, although, that was the first report. A second report now suggests it is not a punctured long. Stay on this story. If Gronk is out for a week or so, Martellus Bennett gets a huge bump, but is already a low-end TE1 even if Gronk is healthy. Any game Gronk is out, Bennett is a high-end TE1.

Rob Kelley | RB WAS

For some reason, Rob Kelley is still available in over half of all leagues. He was on our Bold Predictions List this year, so he should be owned by SleeperU users. Plus, we have had him on our waiver wire list a few times prior to this week. However, if available, though, grab him immediately, as he has huge, huge upside. In Week 10, he rushed 22 times for 97 yards in Week 10 against the Vikings.

CJ Prosise / Thomas Rawls | RB SEA

C.J. Prosise carried the ball 17 times for 66 yards in Week 10 against the Patriots. He also pulled in seven passes for 87 yards. While it’s easy to assume that a star has been born, at least in PPR, keep in mind that Christine Michael was banged up with a hamstring injury, and Thomas Rawls is expected back from injury ASAP. So, while I love Prosise’s skill set, and he must be grabbed this week, curb expectations a bit, and certainly entertain both redraft and dynasty trade offers for the guy if you already own him (if the buyer is willing to buy-high). He has sneaky-good value moving forward, though, so no one is suggesting that you sell just to sell… sell if it improves your line-up/situation. As for Rawls, grab him as well. While Christine Michael still has the most appeal out of all three backs in Seattle, that could change in a single day or even hour, and either Rawls or Prosise could be a strong flex option moving forward if getting starter-type carries.

Eli Rogers | WR PIT

In Week 1, Eli Rogers pulled in 6 passes for 59 yards and 1TD, but he has been kind of banged up until recently. His last two games: 6/103/0TDs and 4/42/1TD. He easily has strong fantasy WR4-type value, if not higher, moving forward.

Wendell Smallwood | RB PHI

Wendell Smallwood rushed 13 times for 70 yards Week 10 against the Falcons. Despite the uptick in play, he needs to work on pass protection, something that could have his rise a bit more delayed. However, grab him if you can afford to roster him and wait, he has nice appeal.

Tyreek Hill | WR KC

Tyreek Hill, available in a grip of leagues despite being on our pick-up list already, caught 10 passes for 89 yards in Week 10 against the Panthers. He feels consistent enough to roster in redraft as a WR4/5, so a bye week type of play. His last three games: 5/98/1TD, 3/11/0TDs and 10/89/0TDs.

Cameron Brate | TE TB

Cameron Brate is also a player listed a few weeks back, but he is still available in a ton of leagues! His last three games: 3/22/1TD, 5/43/1TD and 7/84/1TD.

NOTE: Last week, James Starks was a must-add and should be ranked in right around 1-2 above if available in your league.

    Thoughts? Other names (maybe even if from last week)?

    Cam Meredith, with Jeffries getting suspended Cam is a must own.

      Yep, that broke after this was written, but great add, and I’ll edit above! Martellus Bennett as well, if Gronk is out (lung). There are conflicting reports on Gronk’s injury after the first report today said it was a punctured lung.

    I replied as that news broke!
