Week 10 will end with the Monday night game between the Denver Broncos and the Buffalo Bills. But focus can now show shift to Week 11 for fantasy football owners, and the waiver wire additions to be made. Four teams are on bye in Week 11 (New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons).

8 players to add off the waiver wire before Week 11 for fantasy football

Devin Singletary, RB, Houston Texans

Singletary started encroaching on Dameon Pierce's snap share before Houston's Week 7 bye, and with Pierce out with an ankle injury the last two games he has been the lead back for Houston. In Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals, Singletary had 30 carries for a career-high 150 yards with a touchdown (with one catch for 11 yards).

Pierce was not impressive this season before being injured, and he may return to the wrong side of a time share with Singletary. Three of Houston’s next four opponents (Arizona Cardinals-Week 11; Denver Broncos-Week 13, New York Jets-Week 14) entered Week 10 in the bottom-10 in fantasy points allowed to running backs (Yahoo! scoring, 0.5-point PPR).

It's worth remembering Singletary had just 26 rushing yards in Week 9, and 150 yards is certainly a high end, unlikely to be repeated performance. But he's a RB2 in 12-team leagues while Pierce is out, and likely a viable flex play when Pierce is back. The former Bill should not be available in half of fantasy leagues.
