After a rough Week 9, our boy Mitch is back to positive results with two big dubs in the home leagues. Just like Kyler Murray, Mitch announced himself as officially back and ready for the playoff push. Do not get me wrong, Kyler is not playoff-bound, but Mitch is headed in that direction. To stay trending in that direction, we need to work to ensure we cover down for the Week 11 byes. Also, do not forget there are six additional teams on bye in Weeks 13-14, so treat this week’s waivers as a plan for moving into those weeks, even if unaffected by the Falcons, Colts, Saints, and Patriots missing time.

There are clear RB1s missing Week 11, with Bijan Robinson, Jonathan Taylor, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Alvin Kamara all taking the week off to rest up for their playoff push. Add to that list Alexander Mattison (concussion), and there will be a lot of teams in your league looking to add at the RB position. Be smart with your FAAB. If you do not need an RB, place your smart FAAB on another position where you can save some coin as your league mates clamor for help at RB. My point? Know your league and know who will be spending and where this week.

Remember to check in with the @Razzball NFL team of writers as we host our Sunday Morning Start/Sit podcast every week, starting two hours before kickoff all the way up to the official start of the early games. We have also created a new Tuesday evening show where we hit on waivers, trades, and trends for the upcoming week. Join @BobbyLaMarco, @SkyGuasco, The Lineup Builder @Derek_Favret, and me, Mitch Staniger @stiles08, at 9 pm EST/6 pm PST for the show as we will be answering all your questions to help you win your weekly matchups. Come for the analysis, and stay for the laughs!


Add of the Week:  Noah Brown, HOU, (25% rostered):  I pushed Brown last week and am doubling down this week. Brown has now delivered two 24+ point PPR games in a row and will continue to do so with both Robert Woods and Nico Collins dealing with injuries. In fact, Woods came back, and Brown significantly outplayed him. I look for Woods to be the odd man out when Collins is fully back. Still available in 75% of leagues, this may be the final opportunity you have to add Brown for your playoff run. Start him with confidence until a defense proves the Houston offense can be stopped.


QB: One of the true feel-good stories of 2023 is Josh Dobbs. We have discussed Dobbs (53% rostered) a few times in this column, and he continues to make me look like I know what I am doing. Our guy Dobbs has logged 25+ fantasy points in half of his games, one of which he was not even the starter. Not only did he have just a couple of days with the Minnesota playbook, but he also hilariously admitted he did not know the names of the offensive linemen when he replaced the injured starting QB two weeks ago. If you lost Derek Carr (concussion) or if your current starter has a rough matchup, Dobbs’ schedule looks amazing for the next two weeks (at Denver, Chicago at home).


Honorable Mention/Cheaper Options:

Russell Wilson, DEN

Will Levis, TEN

Deshaun Watson, CLE


RB: I would have Keaton Mitchell as my add of the week if his volume was even the slightest bit higher. The key for Mitchell (47% rostered) is named Gus Edwards. If Gus goes does or hits the veteran wall, I truly believe Mitchell becomes the RB1 in Baltimore, with Justice Hill continuing to fill the same role he does today as the backup. He scored another TD on a long rush but only had a total of four touches in the game. He certainly maximized his touches, but please know he is only a grab-and-stash guy. There is an outside chance he becomes the starter at some point, but that has a lot to do with the head coach’s decision or an injury to Gus, neither of which we can predict.


Honorable Mention/Cheaper Options:

RB: Ty Chandler, MIN:  You will not know enough about the Mattison concussion situation when your waivers run, so read up on Chandler (8% rostered) now while you have time. The Vikings offense is likely to have Justin Jefferson back for Week 11, and that means defenses will need to focus on stopping him first. Throw in the fact that Dalvin Cook is long gone, Mattison is injured, Cam Akers is done for the season, and you have the makings of a smash spot for Chandler. In his limited action on Sunday, Chandler had 15 carries for 45 yards and 1 TD. The yards per carry is nothing to write home about, but the volume is, and we need to start RBs that will have volume considering all of the starting RBs out for Week 11. 

D’Onta Foreman, CHI: I am officially OUT on Roschon Johnson as a potential starting fantasy RB for 2023. Foreman (62% rostered) is still the guy for the Bears but does have Khalil Herbert lurking in the shadows. If Herbert is back for Week 11, I think Foreman still has a role, but it will be cut in half at best. Please remember we are talking about an offense led by Matt Eberflus and Luke Getsy, so there is no telling what, if anything, they are thinking. Add and hold Foreman for now and run him out there in Week 11, especially if Herbert continues to miss time. Temper all expectations, as the matchup versus Detroit is not ideal.

Devin Singletary, HOU: I said it last week and will repeat it for Week 11….Singletary is still only 50% rostered even though he is in clear starting RB1 with Dameon Pierce out. With the RB names missing Week 11, Singletary is in the must-start conversation, especially against the Cardinals. Also, consider Singletary has the Jags and Broncos coming on the schedule. I like his next three matchups. Continue to monitor the Pierce injury as his health will go a long way to determine the volume for Singletary.


WR: Brandin Cooks, DAL:  I drafted Cooks (38% rostered). I grew tired of Cooks not producing. Cooks flipped me off and has been hanging that same middle in the air for a few weeks awaiting his breakout. Well, Brandin, you can lower the finger and revel in your 9-173-1 line against the Giants. I am still not sold on Cooks moving forward until I realize the Cowboys are not utilizing Tony Pollard and will probably continue to allow Dak Prescott to drop back and sling the rock. Now is the time to add Cooks, and hope Dallas continues to throw the ball all over the field. I love Cooks’ schedule over the next four weeks (at Carolina, Washington at home, Seattle at home, and Philadelphia at home).


Honorable Mention/Cheaper Options:

Demario Douglas, NE: Douglas (36% rostered) appears to be the new shiny toy for Mac Jones (or Bailey Zappe). With the injuries at WR for the Patriots, I love the FLEX play of Douglas moving forward. Remember he is one bye Week 11, so this move is for the future.

Rashid Shaheed, A.T. Perry, NOMichael Thomas sustained a shoulder injury that could linger into Week 12, so keep an eye on his situation moving forward. Based on snap count and route percentage from Week 10, Perry (0% rostered) appears to be in line for more opportunities than Shaheed (51% rostered).

Odell Beckham Jr., BAL:  Do not do it! You know better!


TE: Trey McBride, ARI: This guy McBride should not be available in 41% of leagues, but he is, and you need to roster him immediately. Kyler Murray was locked on to McBride, and I see that continuing down the stretch.

Honorable Mention/Cheaper Options:

Cade Otton, TB

Cole Kmet, CHI

Luke Musgrave, GB
