This could be a challenging week if you’re looking for Wire advice. But Hey I’m here to help. In fantasy football we can’t predict injuries and we had a few more significant ones happen in Week 10.

Let’s Dive In:
Keenum was lights out against the Washington Redskins in Week 10. a career-best four scores at Washington, completing 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards with a couple of turnovers. It’s his second straight game with 20-plus Fantasy points — a coincidence given the return of Stefon Diggs? He’ll get tested against a Rams pass defense that’s held four straight quarterbacks to 16 or fewer Fantasy points each, including Russell Wilson. He’s under consideration as a streaming choice in Week 11.
If youre in a pinch…. He’s scored at least 17 points in each of his last three and should accumulate at least that much in Week 11 at Cleveland. The Browns have allowed multiple touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks in 7 of 9 games.
With both Aaron Jones (knee) and Ty Montgomery (ribs) exiting Week 10’s game against Chicago early, Williams took over and ran for 67 yards on 20 carries. The results didn’t blow anyone away, but Williams could be in line to start next in a statistically favorable matchup against Baltimore. As we saw in Week 10, Green Bay is more than willing to run often if the game is close, so Williams looms as a potential starting option if Jones and Montgomery are out.
Mike Gillislee being a healthy scratch in Week 10 is a great sign going forward for Burkhead, who had 13 touches for 63 yards and a score against the Broncos. He still has to compete with Dion Lewis and James White for playing time, but Burkhead has carved out a nice role in the Patriots’ offense, and it’s likely he’ll continue to see close to double-digit touches going forward.
Murray and Jerick McKinnon go back and forth each week, and last week Murray took the cake. He led the team with 17 carries and 68 yards and a score, doubling McKinnon in yards and nearly doubling in carries. Murray may be worth a start depending on matchups, but he should definitely be on a roster than free agency.
The final stats might not show anything spectacular, as Davis caught four passes for 48 yards (and lost a fumble), but Davis led the team with 10 targets and nearly recorded a touchdown if he didn’t fumble it inches away from the end zone. Many fantasy circles had kept watchful eyes on the rookie all year, and it appears now he’s finally showcasing his potential.
Inman made his presence felt in his Chicago debut, leading the team in catches (6), yards (88), and tying for the team lead in targets (8). The 6-3 veteran, who came over via trade from the Chargers, has a good chance to be Mitchell Trubisky’s top receiver, and while that might not sound too exciting, there’s still potential value here, especially in favorable matchups
After a solid Week 9, Goodwin caught one of two targets for 83 yards and a score in Week 10. Primarily a big-play, boom-or-bust guy, Goodwin could carve out a little more consistent value after the bye given the 49ers lack of a No. 1 receiver and the potential promotion of Jimmy Garoppolo.
Westbrook has been out all season because of a core muscle injury, but he’s expected to return in Week 11. Yes, we thought that in Weeks 9 and 10, but this really does seem like the week. His role is still a bit uncertain with Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns currently hogging targets, but, Hurns is not expected for Week 11 so he could easily find himself busy. He’s worth stashing if you have the space.
Gordon hasn’t played since 2014, but he’ll be eligible to return from his suspension in Week 13. It’s anyone’s guess as to how effective he’ll be, but at 26, it’s not as if he’ll have nothing left in the tank. The fact he plays for the Browns certainly dims his outlook, but with Gordon’s talent level, he’s worth a stash for the fantasy playoffs just in case.
Now fair warning I can’t stand Gresham for some reason. However, opportunity knocks. If you’re desperate…. Gresham showed in Week 10 that he will be a big part of the Cardinals offense with Carson Palmer out. Arizona’s Week 11 opponent, Houston, entered Week 10 allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to TEs, so this could be another big week for Gresham.
This guy has the talent but no matter who the QB is he doesn’t get targeted enough. Njoku scored earlier this year against the Ravens, who have had problems with TEs for much of the season. If you can stomach using a Browns player in Week 11, Njoku might be your best bet to pay off.
Arizona Defensive shares have dipped because they’re not as elite as a team. However, Tom Savage is their opponent in Week 11.
Cincinnati has been the definition of an “average” D/ST this season, but you can still use it in favorable matchups. Week 11’s game in Denver qualifies.
