Nov. 14-- Each week I'll list the best widely available free agents for fantasy football-I define "widely available" as being owned in around half of all ESPN or Yahoo leagues-and some guys who are probably better off in the free agent pool than collecting dust on your roster.
Here are my best bets for Week 11:
RB Danny Woodhead, Ravens (ESPN: 39 percent; Yahoo: 36 percent): Woodhead leads off for a second straight week, which indicates the type of impact he's capable of having. The PPR dynamo has resumed practicing and is eligible to return this week. Baltimore faces Cleveland and Indianapolis during the fantasy playoffs.
WR Marqise Lee, Jaguars (ESPN: 43 percent; Yahoo: 60 percent): I know Jacksonville is a run-oriented offense, but Lee is still a No. 1 WR and owned in too few leagues. His averages over the last four weeks: 10 targets, six receptions, 71 yards and he's scored a TD in two straight games.
RB Jamaal Williams, Packers (ESPN: 3 percent; Yahoo: 8 percent): Williams could be in line for 20-plus touches with Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery injured.
WR Corey Davis, Titans (ESPN: 34 percent; Yahoo: 48 percent): Davis is clearly on his way to becoming Tennessee's top wide receiver. He's received double-digit targets in half his four starts this season and continues to improve each week.
TE Jermaine Gresham, Cardinals (ESPN: 1 percent, Yahoo: 2 percent): Whether it's Drew Stanton or Blaine Gabbert, Gresham will be a top priority going forward, especially Championship Week (Week 16) against the Giants.
BONUS: WR Martavis Bryant, Steelers (ESPN: 41 percent; Yahoo: 43 percent): Bryant is still behind JuJu Smith-Schuster in Pittsburgh's passing pecking order, but he remains a boom-or-bust flex option when he plays.
BONUS: RB Samaje Perine, Redskins (ESPN: 6 percent; Yahoo: 8 percent): Rob Kelley will miss "multiple games" so the rookie will have significant flex value going forward while likely receiving double-digit carries and goal-line work.
BONUS: Bengals D/ST (ESPN: 38 percent; Yahoo: 26 percent): Cincinnati is the best streaming option this week matched up against Denver-fantasy's gift to opposing defenses and special teams.
WR Will Fuller, Texans: A high volume won't make up for Tom Savage. Now he could miss some time after cracking his ribs against the Rams on Sunday.
RB Darren McFadden, Cowboys: Rod Smith was clearly the passing down running back of choice for Dallas.
RB Aaron Jones, Packers: The rookie running back could miss a month with an apparent MCL injury.
WR John Brown, Cardinals: Brown has only three receptions for 79 yards since Week 7-when Carson Palmer broke his arm.
RB Mike Gillislee, Patriots: He was a healthy scratch Sunday night.
