November is flying by! The eleventh week of the NFL season is upon us. The pool of players available for waiver pick is barren (unless you are in a sub 10 team league). If you are looking for a player off waivers, you will have few quality options. Most of the stellar players not drafted have either already been picked up, or ended up fizzling out (yes I was on the Edelman band wagon early in the year).
He is currently owned in 51% of Yahoo! leagues, he should be owned in all. It is quite possible he is already owned in twelve team leagues and higher. Last week I advised fantasy owners to pick up Riley Cooper off waivers. Those who followed the advice we're rewarded with a huge performance against the Packers. Cooper scored two touchdowns, and had a total of 102 receiving yards. Nick Foles and Riley Cooper have amazing chemistry, and the duo has proved they we're not one week wonders. He has amassed 55.90 fantasy points over the last two weeks, and has cemented himself as a legitimate fantasy receiver for the remainder of the year. I like that the numbers we're attained in games where the Eagles we're not playing catch up. The success came in a 27-13 win over Green Bay, and Nick Foles record tying day, a seven touchdown performance in a 49-20 win over the Raiders. This proves that Foles throws to Cooper even when the Eagles have a lead, which is a good sign.
If you are looking for a fill in for Dallas' bye week, I would suggest Jerricho Cotchery. He is only owned in 14% of Yahoo! leagues. He has a respectable 82 fantasy points on the year. He has reached the endzone six times this year, four times in the last two weeks. Some would call his surge of touchdowns flukey, I say it shows that Ben Roethlisberger throws him the ball in the red zone. There are worse players to take a chance on then Jericho Cotchery in Week 1. He has had 36.7 points over the past two weeks, if he stays hot he could benefit your team. The Steelers will be playing Detroit, who do give up a fair amount of points to wide receivers. Hopefully Big Ben continues to get him the ball in the red zone.
