As Week 11 begins, there are some players out with injury, which may leave your fantasy football rosters looking a little different and potentially weaker. While it’s hard to bench your fantasy studs you drafted, the option of streaming players off the waiver wire could bode well for your success in your fantasy football league. It is always a better decision to weigh your options and play the player with a much better matchup than start the same guy every week hoping for a breakout game.
Read on for three wide receiver fantasy football streamers for Week 11. Despite only two teams on a bye week this week (DEN and LAR), there are plenty of wide receiver streaming options available under 50 percent ownership that could help push your team forward in the right direction. There aren’t many wide receiver fantasy studs on those four teams aside from the Bengals, so it shouldn’t hurt your team too much but nonetheless, streaming options are always there for consideration.
Players must be owned in less than 50 percent of ESPN leagues to be included in the Week 11 fantasy football wide receiver streamers column. All ownerships for players will be provided and will reflect that of Wednesday morning, once waivers are processed.
Week 11 Fantasy Football WR Streamers
Elijah Moore, NYJ vs. MIA (39.2%)
The rookie wide receiver had a slow start to the season, unable to form any sort of chemistry with Zach Wilson. However, Elijah Moore has stepped up his game these last few weeks. He has seen consistent targets all season but is now turning those targets into touchdowns and solid yardage, posting four straight double-digit fantasy football performances. Miami ranks as the third-worst defense against opposing wide receivers this season, allowing more than 41.0 fantasy points per game (FPPG). As long as the Jets quarterback situation isn’t affected all too much, Moore will likely post yet another solid fantasy day.
Rashod Bateman, BAL at CHI (40.2%)
Another rookie wide receiver making the cut this week as a viable streamer is Rashod Bateman. Since entering the lineup, it’s clear that he and Lamar Jackson are generating some chemistry already, as he has been targeted at least six times in the four games he’s started. He has still yet to find the end zone, but his stats have improved every week and they face the fifth-worst defense against opposing wide receivers in the Bears. The Ravens lost last week against the dismal Dolphins, so they should be out for blood this time around. It’s possible Bateman finds the end zone for the first time in his career.
Kendrick Bourne, NE at ATL (10.0%)
The Patriots have been on fire lately, beating teams with ease. Rookie quarterback Mac Jones has looked more comfortable week-in-and-week-out. Kendrick Bourne has seemed to be one of his trusted options in the wide receiving corps, garnering more than four targets in four straight games while finding the endzone once last week. It is tough to trust Patriots’ pass-catchers because they simply don’t throw the ball much, and it’s possible they run all over the mediocre Atlanta defense, but Atlanta is allowing more than 37.5 FPPG to opposing wide receivers this season. He’s a sneaky fantasy football streamer in deeper formats, considering he’s rostered in only 10 percent of leagues.
