The FDx Wire grasps the traditional waiver-wire report. However, we have added our FDx Score to illustrate how our proprietary algorithms feel about the player. The higher the number, the better that player will perform. Also, includes a projected point total for the week. Visit The Fantasy Doctors Analytics HERE for our Top Week 11 Projections. You will not see any adds to a player over 70% ownership in two leagues.
Case Keenum, QB MIN (50.66 FDx Score/14.16 Projected Points)
13.3% ownership in ESPN leagues
27% ownership in CBS leagues
18% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Case Keenum has been achieving solid numbers since taking over for Sam Bradford. Against the Redskins he completed 21/29 passes for 304 yards with four touchdowns and two picks. His weapons are solid with Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs. Keep in mind that Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared to play, so they may change their sites if Keenum begins to struggle.
Latavius Murray RB, MIN (58.20 FDx Score/5.86 Projected Points)
61.2% ownership in ESPN leagues
66% ownership in CBS leagues
44% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Latavius Murray is getting the work routine and had 17 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown against Washington on Sunday. This makes four weeks in a row where he has had 15 or more carries in a game. He is also the man near the goal line. He won’t catch many passes but will put up enough points to make a worthwhile in flex position or in a bye-week replacement.
Rex Burkhead, RB NE (43.92 FDx Score/3.45 Projected Points)
11.7% ownership in ESPN leagues
21% ownership in CBS leagues
14% ownership in Yahoo leagues
He was heavily involved on 36 out of a possible 70 snaps and carried 10 times for 36. He also added three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown. All this against the Denver Broncos. Comparably, Dion Lewis and James White totaled 32 snaps. It’s hard to declare who will be the winner from week-to-week in New England, but Burkhead will be heavily involved while healthy.
Devontae Booker, RB DEN (66.4 FDx Score/8.16 Projected Points)
10.4% ownership in ESPN leagues
27% ownership in CBS leagues
7% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Devontae Booker had his snap count raised once again last week in the blowout loss to New England. This makes it a difficult read on the offense, as its unclear if it was planned or had to be abandoned, because of the beating put on by the Patriots. As the Broncos fall farther out of the playoffs, it is my belief they are going to want to get Booker more involved in the offense.
Willie Snead, WR NO (43.5 FDx Score/2.23 Projected Points)
27.2% ownership in ESPN leagues
33% ownership in CBS leagues
28% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Willie Snead is seeing more action now. It took him sometime to bounce back from his injury. He played 36 snaps, but still hasn’t been targeted in the past three games. However, over those three games he has seen his snap share percentage increase from 7-30-47. There are many leagues out there that have abandoned Snead, take advantage of that. It won’t be long before he starts putting up good numbers.
Corey Davis, WR TEN (52.51 FDx Score/3.6 Projected Points)
34.4% ownership in ESPN leagues
58% ownership in CBS leagues
48% ownership in Yahoo leagues
After getting hurt in week two, Davis has finally made it back in week nine. Therefore, in his last two weeks he got six receptions for 76-yards and no touchdowns. He came close to scoring last week, instead he fumbled at the goal line. Davis is a freak show in the terms of Randy Moss. He won’t perform at the level of Moss, but should generate solid numbers for your team if you need a wide receiver.
Jermaine Gresham, TE ARI (83.74 FDx Score/6.90 Projected Points)
1.4% ownership in ESPN leagues
2% ownership in CBS leagues
2% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Jermaine Gresham has been a viable starter in the last two weeks. Against the 49ers, he was able to put up two receptions and a touchdown, and Seattle allowed him to catch five balls for 65-yards and a touchdown. Uncoincidentally, this has been with Drew Stanton. New starting quarterbacks love their security blanket, which is usually the tight end. He has some prime matchups on the way, and the Cardinals already had their bye week.
