Another wild week in fantasy football took place in Week 10 as managers continue to inch toward the playoffs.

With trade deadlines popping up during this week and the coming weeks, the waiver wire will be a vital tool for managers to use to their advantage. This week’s crop may not offer all that much upside, but there are still players to keep an eye on.

Teams on a bye in Week 10 include the Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos. In order to qualify for the waiver wire, a player cannot be rostered in more than 50% of ESPN leagues. We’ll also include a section for players that are probably rostered but worth a look to see if they’re still available.

Here are nine waiver-wire targets for fantasy football in Week 11:

Probably rostered but worth a look

These are the players that are probably rostered in your leagues but are worth a look. If they are available, they should be high-priority additions over most of the options below.

Running Back

Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys (55.9% rostered)
A.J. Dillon, Green Bay Packers (58.9% rostered)
Mark Ingram, New Orleans Saints (65.5% rostered)

Wide Receiver

Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco 49ers (69.4% rostered)
Jakobi Meyers, New England Patriots (66.2% rostered)
Kenny Golladay, New York Giants (59.2% rostered)
Michael Gallup, Dallas Cowboys (51.5% rostered)

Tight End

Hunter Henry, New England Patriots (52.7% rostered)

Rostered: 35.6%

Back as the starter in South Beach, Tagovailoa should be a solid streamer this week. After dealing with a fractured finger, Tagovailoa returned to replace Jacoby Brissett, who was injured during the Dolphins’ Thursday night upset win over the Ravens. Tua averaged 12.2 yards per attempt in his limited work against Baltimore and added a rushing touchdown for the second game in a row. If you need a streamer this week for Matthew Stafford, Tagovailoa gets the New York Jets.

QB Mac Jones, New England Patriots

Rostered: 13.8%

While Jones may not hold season-long value, he could very well be an excellent streamer in Week 11. Coming off of his best fantasy finish of the season as the QB4 in Week 10, Jones now travels on Thursday night to take on the Atlanta Falcons, who have allowed three weekly finishes inside the top-12 over the last four weeks.

QB Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers

Rob Schumacher-Arizona Republic

Rostered: 12.5%

This is more of a stash play with a chance at upside. I would be hesitant to start Newton in Week 11 even if the matchup against the Washington Football Team is the best a quarterback can get. That said, Newton should be picked up. On his very first play with his former team, Newton scored a rushing touchdown and wound up throwing a touchdown pass on one of his four attempts. If he’s named the starter this week, he’s a desperation streamer with upside if he holds the job season-long.

RB Rhamondre Stevenson, New England Patriots

Rostered: 28.4%

It isn’t clear yet if Damien Harris will clear concussion protocol before the Thursday night game against the Falcons. If he doesn’t, Stevenson is a starting asset right off the waiver wire. Logging 20 carries for 100 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns, Stevenson could be the bell cow on Thursday night. He flashed upside finishing as the RB2 overall in Week 10 and with a juicy matchup arriving against the Falcons, the rookie could be a strong play right away.

Rostered: 0.8%

We’re sticking with this Thursday Night Football theme I guess. In the Falcons’ blowout loss, potential fantasy MVP Cordarrelle Patterson suffered an ankle injury and it isn’t clear if he can make the quick turnaround. On top of that Gallman out-carried Mike Davis 15 to 4 so we may be looking at a depth chart switch. If Patterson is ruled out, Gallman does have some FLEX appeal in deeper leagues.

WR Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears

Rostered: 45.6%

Coming off the bye week, Mooney has a chance to really take a hold of the Bears passing offense. He has a connection with rookie Justin Fields on the deep ball and is seemingly becoming his favorite target. Mooney has seen at least a 20% target share in seven of the last eight games. View him as a WR3 with upside moving forward but Mooney should certainly be on fantasy rosters.

WR Elijah Moore, New York Jets

Rostered: 37.2%

The rookie wideout continues to produce for fantasy football and did so again in Week 10 even if took some garbage time for it to happen. Moore now has at least six targets in each of his last four games and has three touchdown receptions in his last two. He may not ascend to be the Jets’ WR1 this season but he’s a valuable commodity with upside given his talent and the way rookie wideouts tend to breakout during the second half.

WR Rashod Bateman, Baltimore Ravens

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

Rostered: 31.6%

I can talk about Bateman all day long and it’s not just because I traded for him in dynasty a few weeks ago. The rookie wideout seems to be building a connection with Lamar Jackson every week. He’s seen no fewer than six targets since making his debut in Week 6 and is coming off a career-high weekly finish as the WR24. He should be viewed as a WR3 (top-36) piece moving forward with upside should he continue to develop a rapport with his quarterback.

TE Dan Arnold, Jacksonville Jaguars

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Rostered: 27.3%

The Jaguars offense is sloppy and hard to watch, but it’s tough to find a consistent tight end on a weekly basis. Arnold has been that, though, since arriving in Jacksonville via trade. He posted a season-high 11.2 fantasy points in Week 10, good for a TE6 finish. It’s the second time in three weeks he’s finished as TE6 or better in a week. What keeps Arnold consistent is his steady usage. In four of the last five weeks, Arnold has logged at least 20% target share. He’s yet to find the end zone but with his steady targets, that should come soon.
