Week 11 is upon us and it’s slim pickings for fantasy owners needing help at the wide receiver position. Luckily, there are a few receivers out that that can help fantasy owners in Week 11 or might even be worth picking up to keep away from owners in need of some help at the receiver position. Riley Cooper, Reuben Randle and Jarrett Boykin lead the pack of Week 11 waiver wire pickups.
Riley Cooper (WR – PHI)
Riley Cooper has been putting up monster numbers with Nick Foles as his quarterback. Cooper has had over twenty points in each of his last two games and has had double-digit fantasy points in four of his last five games.
With Nick Foles under center and defenses focusing on stopping DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy, Cooper should get plenty of chances to keep making big plays. Cooper has an extremely easy schedule the rest of the way and can now be considered a high-end WR3 and Flex play from here on out as long as Foles remains under center.
Reuben Randle (WR – NYG)
Reuben Randle is always a scary start for any fantasy owner due to the fact that he is the number three option for the Giants behind Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. However, Randle leads the team with five receiving touchdowns and has eclipsed double-digit fantasy points in four of the last five games.
Randle only has four fewer points than Nicks this season in PPR leagues and actually has more points than Nicks in standard scoring leagues. Randle is no more than a WR3 or low-end flex play but he has actually been a more productive receiver than Nicks in recent weeks and has a higher chance getting in the end zone. Randle also has lots of value if Nicks can’t stay healthy which has been the case in recent years.
Jarrett Boykin (WR – GB)
Jarrett Boykin was a hot commodity a few weeks ago with injuries to Randal Cobb, Jermichael Finley and James Jones but fantasy owners jumped off his bandwagon when Aaron Rodgers was diagnosed with a three to four week injury in Week 9.
Boykin put up huge numbers on Sunday against the Eagles racking up 121 yards on eight catches. Boykin is proving to be a vital piece to the Packers offense, and is making plays behind the line of scrimmage and deep down the field. Boykin led the Packers with 13 targets in Week 11 and should be considered a high-end WR3 or Flex play until proven otherwise.
