Antonio Gibson, RB, Washington Commanders

Gibson is the 1B to Brian Robinson in the Commanders' backfield, but after a mostly down earlier portion of the season he's on a bit of an upswing. Gibson has five receptions in three straight games, on 16 total targets, with at least 55 total yards in the last two. He has at least four catches or a receiving touchdown in five of the last six games.

The weekly floor with Gibson is low, and the upside is capped by being in a timeshare. But he's trending in a good way, with real flex appeal in PPR leagues as some fantasy managers may be diving deep for options at running back.

Pat Freiermuth, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers

Freiermuth is eligible to come off IR this week, and that automatically puts him on the waiver wire radar at tight end. It's an outright bad matchup for him in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns, but things ease up nicely after that from Week 12-17 (Cincinnati Bengals. Arizona Cardinals, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Bengals again, Seattle Seahawks).

The Steelers' offense is not exactly a fantasy oasis, and Freiermuth was off to a slow start before his injury. But anyone struggling at tight end should have him on their radar as an add this week.
