I have not recycled any fantasy football waiver wire targets yet this year, but that will change with Baltimore Ravens running back Keaton Mitchell.
I am making an exception with Mitchell -and another player that will be listed later–for two reasons. The first is because the circumstances around adding him have greatly changed. Plus, the waiver wire would be trash otherwise and I’d rather repeat players than tell you to pick up a bum.
In the Week 5 fantasy football waiver wire post, I recommended adding Mitchell because he has a high ceiling. Now, we are seeing that upside come into play.
In Week 9, Mitchell logged nine carries for 138 yards and a touchdown. In Week 10, he found the endzone in a three-carry 34-yard performance while adding a 32-yard reception.
Mitchell was an electric prospect coming out of East Carolina. It was evident that he had the potential to make big plays. That is coming to fruition in the NFL. Mitchell is a great player in best ball leagues because of that big play upside. At the same time, he should begin to take touches from Gus Edwards and Justice Hill.
C.J. Stroud is slinging the ball in Houston and it has made Noah Brown a viable fantasy option.
In the last two games, Brown has finished with more than 150 yards. In one of those games, he added a touchdown.
This is fairly simple. The Texans are throwing the ball a lot and scoring points. I am more than willing to add a high-upside receiver from that offense.
Brown is not an elite waiver wire target because he still has to deal with Nico Collins and Tank Dell getting targets. That said, in a pass-heavy offense a third receiver can still be a productive fantasy option.
Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Quentin Johnston is the other player to make his second appearance as a fantasy football waiver wire target.
Johnston was a waiver wire target all the way back in Week 4 after Mike Williams suffered a season-ending ACL tear. Although, it seems like many people dropped Johnston after a handful of bad weeks. That is strange considering Johnston was always a high-upside play that could help in the latter portion of the season.
Johnston has gotten to the point where the Chargers are attempting to get him more involved. The team is looking to get him the ball in open space and they are giving him a chance to make plays downfield. It will not be a surprise to see Johnston convert a handful of big plays. I’m interested in trying to get that production onto my team.
In the later portion of the 2023 season, we are seeing an influx of interesting waiver wire tight ends. This week New York Jets tight end Tyler Conklin is worth a flier. That is assuming players like Dalton Kincaid and Trey McBride are unavailable in your league.
Conklin will not be a fantasy football home run, but he is getting more involved in the Jets offense. In the last two weeks, he has logged 66 and 70 yards.
Conklin is a solid option if you need to stream a tight end. The floor is relatively low as long as the Jets continue to feed him the ball. If you are in a PPR league, Conklin will probably scam his way to decent production since he gets a decent amount of receptions.
The final fantasy football waiver wire target for Week 11 is Minnesota Viking running back Ty Chandler.
Chandler is coming off his best game of the season. The North Carolina product logged 15 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown.
Typically, I do not get too excited to start backup running backs. In Minnesota, head coach Kevin O’Connell finds a way to get production out of his offense. The Vikings will score points. Therefore, their starting running back should be on a roster.
