Keepers, Sleepers, and Jeepers: Week Eleven

By Adam Filadelfo (@FNTSYArchitect)

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for fantasy owners to get their waiver wire claims in. There isn't much time as the fantasy playoffs get closer and closer to make those necessary changes to get your team prepared for the stretch run.

Keepers

Mark Sanchez-Quarterback- Philadelphia Eagles- Not that "The Sanchize" is anything to write home about but with the injury to Sam Bradford, someone has to quarterback for the Eagles and that someone will be Mark Sanchez. In his only appearance this season, Mark Sanchez completed 14 out of 23 passes for 156 yards and an interception. Last season in nine games, he passed for 2,418 yards and 14 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. While fantasy owners won't be tripping over themselves to acquire Sanchez, Sam Bradford owners may want to take a look at him to fill their quarterback position. Sanchez may not be great, but he's surely better than a goose egg at the position.

Davante Adams- Wide Receiver- Green Bay Packers- Before the season began, Davante Adams was a fantasy darling. It only took a few short weeks before fantasy owners began to drop him from their rosters. Now it looks like he may be worth a roster spot once more. The last two weeks, Adams has 11 and 21 targets respectively and seems to be the focus of Aaron Rodgers. With Green Bay struggling over the last few games, fantasy owners should expect Adams to keep getting looks. What he does with those targets is another story.

Zach Miller- Tight End- Chicago Bears- With three touchdowns in his last two games, Zach Miler looks to fill a need at tight end for fantasy owners that need help at the position. It will be difficult for him to follow up his week ten showing but coming off of his first double digit fantasy performance of the season, fantasy owners will want to take a chance on him for week 11.

Sleepers

Brock Osweiler-Quarterback- Denver Broncos-  Now that we know Peyton Manning will miss at least week 11, Brock Osweiler gets his chance to shine. With obviously no statistics to go on, fantasy owners that need help at the quarterback position may want to take a chance on the former Arizona State University signal caller. Osweiler has a favorable matchup versus the Chicago Bears in week 11 which doesn't hurt him at all.

Jay Ajayi- Running Back- Miami Dolphins- With no more than six attempts in the two games he played, it seems like it may be time for the former Boise State product to get a shot in the NFL. Obviously Lamar Miller is firmly planted as the starter in Miami but Ajayi should serve as a change of pace back for the remainder of the season. He could end up being a decent flex play at some point for owners in desperate need of a running back.

Richard Rodgers- Tight End- Green Bay Packers- Fantasy owners can do much worse than Richard Rodgers. With five touchdowns already this season, he also has 33 catches for 256 yards and is averaging over six fantasy points per game. Reliable tight ends are difficult to come upon for fantasy owners these days and Richard Rodgers would be a boost to tight end needy rosters.

Jeepers

Case Keenum- Quarterback- St. Louis Rams- The Nick Foles experiment seems to be over in St. Louis and now it's time for Case Keenum to show once again that he is not an every week starter for fantasy owners or the Rams. Having not played in a meaningful game since last season where he saw two games and passed for 435 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, Case Keenum is nothing but a desperate play for fantasy owners and if it comes down to Case Keenum, your season is probably over anyway.
