Week Eleven: Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers

The regular season in fantasy football is grinding to its close...  Are you ready for the playoffs?  Do you still need to make a final push for the playoffs?  Adam Filadelfo (@Frostt24) is back once again to guide you through some potential roster tweaks for that last drive.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are only a few short weeks left in the fantasy football regular season and the waiver wire no longer provides as much help as it did earlier in the year. Owners need to dig a little deeper and reach a little bit more to find that hidden gem each and every week. Knowing who to look for when putting in your waiver wire claims could be the difference between winning or losing your league.

Keepers

Josh McCown- Now that Jay Cutler has been sidelined yet again with another injury, Josh McCown could end up being the Bears quarterback for the remainder of the fantasy football season. In Cutler's absence, McCown has thrown for five hundred thirty eight yards and four touchdowns. He should continue to be a reliable fantasy starter in the absence of Jay Cutler.

Sleepers

Bobby Rainey- Assuming Mike James is out for the rest of the season, Bobby Rainey could be the man in Tampa Bay in his absence. After James went down on Monday night, Rainey stepped in and rushed for forty five yards and a touchdown. He could end up as the starter for the remainder of the season.

Rishard Matthews- Before the Monday night game, it's doubtful many fantasy owners knew who this guy was. After the Monday night game, every fantasy owner knows who this guy is. Fresh off of his eleven receptions for one hundred twenty yards and two touchdowns game, Matthews will be a top waiver wire pickup heading into week eleven. He should continue to play as the slot receiver with Brandon Gibson done for the year. Whether Matthews can maintain this level of success remains to be seen but owners in need of a receiver should definitely add Rishard Matthews. With the way Tannehill likes his slot receiver, Matthews should continue to see a decent number of targets.

Tavon Austin- Every indication points to Tavon Austin just had one of those games. Two of his three touchdowns came off of Special Teams and the other was on one of two receptions. He only saw a total of fifteen offensive snaps the entire game. While he's worth a stash after a performance like week ten, it's difficult to believe he can come close to that again being he hasn't had much success up until this point.

Jeepers

Carson Palmer- This was a rare good game from Palmer where he threw more touchdowns than interceptions. Palmer passed for two hundred forty one yards and two touchdowns to one interception. Even though Palmer has multiple touchdowns the last two weeks, he still cannot be trusted every week as your starting quarterback.

Brandon Pettigrew- Despite the five receptions for seventy yards in week ten, Pettigrew is still not worthy of getting a start in fantasy lineups each week. His mediocre performance was based more on the matchup than the player himself. The Bears haven't figured out how to cover a tight end this season and Pettigrew will go back to being barely a tight end two next week and from here on out.
