Injuries and Waiver Wire week 11 2021
WEEK 10 INJURY REPORT WEEK 11 WAIVER WIRE:
WEEK 10 INJURIES:
Baker Mayfield (Knee) - Mayfield went down with a knee injury after getting sacked in the third quarter. He is not expected to miss time.

Jermar Jefferson (Ankle) - Jefferson was carted off the field with an ankle injury on Sunday.
Aaron Jones (Knee) - Jones left the game in the second half with a knee injury and did not return. Jones was diagnosed with an MCL sprain and is expected to miss one to two weeks.
Elijah Mitchell (Finger) - Mitchell suffered a broken finger on Monday night and required surgery. It is unknown how much, if any time he will miss.
Ty Montgomery (Finger) - Montgomery suffered a dislocated finger injury on Sunday.
Jalen Richard (Ribs) - Richard was unable to finish Sunday night's game with a rib injury.

Teams on bye in Week 11: Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Rams
WEEK 11 WAIVER WIRE:
Cam Newton (CAR) - Cam Newton is back in Carolina with the Panthers, and in his first game, he scored two touchdowns in a limited role off the bench on Sunday. It won't be long before he is named the starting quarterback of this team. When that happens, he has QB1 upside due to his rushing ability. If Newton gets named the starter in week 11, he gets a matchup vs Washington. Washington is also allowing the seventh most rushing yards per game to opposing quarterbacks (27.1 rushing yards per game allowed to opposing quarterbacks), is leading the NFL in passing yards per game allowed (289.9 passing yards per game allowed) and is allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks (25.4). This feels like a great home-coming spot for Newton in his first game back in Carolina.
Mac Jones (NE) - Mac Jones and the Patriots travel to Atlanta for Thursday Night Football against the Falcons. The Falcons are allowing the fifth most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Jones just scored three touchdowns in week 10 vs the Browns and currently is the fourth highest scoring quarterback of the week, pending Monday Night Football. Let's see if Jones can keep it going in week 11.
A.J. Dillon (GB) - Unfortunately, starting RB Aaron Jones suffered an injury on Sunday and may need to miss time. Backup RB A.J. Dillon is the next man up in Green Bay. Dillon carried the ball 21 times for 68 yards and two touchdowns in week 10 and finished as the fourth highest scoring RB of the week. If Dillon is still available on your waiver wire, he is the clear top add of the week.
Mark Ingram (NO) - Saints starting RB Alvin Kamara missed week 10's matchup, and Ingram played well filling in as the primary back. He rushed 14 times for 47 yards and a touchdown, while also catching the ball four times for 61 yards receiving as well. Ingram will likely be an RB2 with upside if Kamara were to miss any more games this season. Even if Kamara is active, Ingram should still be a flex worthy play in the right matchups. The Saints actually have one of those "right" matchups against the Eagles in week 11. Philadelphia allows the fifth most fantasy points to RBs per game this season (29.3 PPR fantasy points per game allowed to RBs), and 104.1 rushing yards per game to opposing RBs.
Rhamondre Stevenson (NE) - Starting RB Damien Harris missed week 10 with a concussion, and Stevenson was the primary ball carrier for the Patriots on Sunday. Stevenson had 20 carries for 100 yards and two touchdowns, leading the team in rushing. Stevenson also had four receptions for 14 yards in this game. As of this writing, it is unclear how much (if any) more time Harris will miss, but Stevenson can be a plug-and-play option while Harris is out. Next week, the Patriots face the Falcons on Thursday Night Football. Atlanta is allowing the eighth most fantasy points per game to running backs this season (27.6 FPPG) and the 13th most rushing yards per game (92.1) to opposing backs.
Also Consider: Jeffrey Wilson (SF), Jordan Howard (PHI)
Van Jefferson (LA) - If you have not heard, Rams wide receiver Robert Woods suffered a torn ACL in Friday's practice and is going to be out for the season. The Rams literally signed Odell Beckham Jr. on the same day as Woods' injury, which makes things interesting. When it was first reported that Beckham was going to sign with LA, many expected this to be a problem for Jefferson's outlook this season, due to their being so many great weapons in LA. However, things can change quickly in the NFL. Jefferson should be on rosters in most leagues. Beckham is going to have to learn the playbook, and Jefferson has been a part of this offense all season. In the short-term, Van Jefferson is the receiver who sees the biggest bump in value right now.
Rashod Bateman (BAL) - Somehow, the rookie receiver is available in over 80% of fantasy leagues on NFL.com. There is a good chance he was not added in your league, and now is the time to pick him up. In his last three games, Bateman has scored double-digit fantasy points in PPR formats. He's totaled 80, 52, and 80 receiving yards in each of those games. He's yet to score an NFL touchdown this season, but he's been producing quality numbers without finding the endzone lately. He's a perfect WR3/Flex option.
Elijah Moore (NYJ) - Moore was spotlighted in this space last week, and he came through in week 10. Moore had 44 yards receiving and a touchdown for the Jets, finishing with double-digit fantasy points yet again. That marks four straight weeks with 10 or more fantasy points for the rookie. Moore has scored 10.20, 13.10, 27.40 and 13.40 fantasy points in each of the last four weeks. Fellow receiver Corey Davis even returned in this matchup and Moore was still able to produce. Add the rookie to the end of your bench, he is going to continue to see plenty of opportunities over the second half of the season.
Also Consider: Corey Davis (NYJ), Kadarius Toney (NYG)
Pat Freiermuth (PIT) - What else needs to be said about Freiermuth that has not been said already? The rookie continues to produce, week after week. In week 10, he had his first game without Ben Roethlisberger in week 10, and that did not slow him down. Freiermuth hauled in five receptions for 31 receiving yards on Sunday with backup quarterback Mason Rudolph throwing him passes. If that doesn't sell you on him, what about the two touchdowns he had in last week's Monday Night Football matchup? Or the fact that he has been a top 15 TE in his rookie season? What if I told you he has a Sunday Night Football Matchup vs the team that is allowing the second-most receiving yards to tight ends on the season?
Evan Engram (NYG) - Now that Engram has had his bye, add him to your roster if you need a TE. He's got a solidified role in the offense, has been a TE1 before, and has produced double-digit fantasy points in three straight games. He draws a matchup vs the Buccaneers in week 11, who have allowed the ninth most fantasy points to tight ends on the season.
