Injuries and Waiver Wire week 11 2022





Justin Fields (Shoulder) - Fields was seen nursing a shoulder injury on Sunday. He was able to play through the injury, but the injury is worth monitoring.

Matthew Stafford (Concussion) - Stafford is currently undergoing the NFL's concussion protocol. He will have to pass through the protocol to be cleared to play next week.





Chase Edmonds (Ankle) - Edmonds hurt his ankle on Sunday and was unable to finish the game.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (Ankle) - Edwards-Helaire injured his ankle in the first quarter.

Joe Mixon (Concussion) - Mixon suffered a concussion. He will have to pass through the NFL's concussion protocol to be cleared to play next week.

Jaylen Warren (Hamstring) - Warren injured his hamstring and could not finish the game.





Miles Boykin (Oblique) - Boykin could not return after an oblique injury.

Wan'Dale Robinson (Knee) - Robinson could not finish the game with a knee injury.

Kadarius Toney (Hamstring) - Kadarius Toney injured his hamstring late in the first half.

Mike Williams (Ankle) - Williams limped off after making a nice catch along the sidelines. He got his ankle re-taped and remained on the sideline but did not return to the game.





Kyle Pitts (Knee) - Pitts suffered a knee injury on Sunday. Coach Arthur Smith had no immediate update after the game.







DeShaun Watson (CLE) - Browns QB DeShaun Watson returned to practice last week, and game-action in week 13, in a revenge game vs the Texans. It's better to get ahead of the curve and add the talented QB now if you have room now, before his FAAB price increases. Watson has shown he can be a top-five QB when he's on the field in 2018, 2019 and 2020 (albeit that was years ago) and to be able to get someone of that caliber off the waiver wire this late in the season would be a huge boost to any QB-needy fantasy team.

Ryan Tannehill (TEN) - Quietly over the last two weeks, Ryan Tannehill has been a solid play for fantasy purposes. He's scored over 19 fantasy points in each game. In week 11, Tannehill threw for 333 yards and two TDs. If you need help for week 12 specifically, Tannehill should at least not hurt you in a matchup vs the Bengals which should feature some points.

Also Consider:

Jared Goff (DET), Kenny Pickett (PIT)





Rachaad White (TB) - Here is what was written about Rachaad White in last week's waiver wire article, all of which remains the same for week 12: Rachaad White handled the bulk of the Buccaneers' carries this week (week 10) gaining 105 yards on 22 attempts. Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette suffered a hip injury this week, which needs to be monitored. Rookie Rachaad White was a third-round pick in the 2022 draft and has been breathing down Fournette's neck over the last few weeks. If White is available in your league (as he is in nearly 72% of NFL Fantasy leagues) add him now.

Samaje Perine (CIN) - Bengals starting RB Joe Mixon went down with a concussion during week 11's game vs the Steelers. As of this writing, it is unclear how much time Mixon will miss, so let's keep an eye on Perine as a safety option for week 12. In Mixon's absence, Perine tallied four receptions for 52 yards and three touchdowns, plus nine carries for 27 yards. Obviously, you can't expect three TD's to be there, but it's great to see usage in both the ground game and through the air. In deeper leagues, Chris Evans could be worth a flyer, if this were to turn into a committee situation.

Isiah Pacheco (KC) - Pacheco was finally given an opportunity in week 10 and ran with it. Pacheco led the Chiefs backfield last week with 16 rushing attempts for 82 yards, finally proving that he's their lead back. In week 11, Pacheco followed that performance up with 15 carries for 107 yards on Sunday night. Pacheco's teammate Clyde Edwards-Helaire also left Sunday night's game with an ankle injury, and Jerick McKinnon had a fumble late in the game. Pacheco is entering low-end RB2 territory. The Chiefs have already had their bye, which is a plus. There will be shoot-out potential games in the coming weeks with games vs LA, and vs CIN over the next two weeks.

Also Consider:

James Cook (BUF), Kenyan Drake (BAL)





Donovan Peoples-Jones (CLE) - DPJ has been a repeat name in this column if you are following closely. The receiver came through in week 10, leading the Browns in receiving and hauling in five receptions for 99 yards. He continued his hot streak with another five receptions for 61 yards and his first TD of the season in week 11. He's been coming along nicely this season as a WR3/FLEX option in plus matchups. Over Peoples-Jones' last five games, he has hauled in 6-71-0, 4-81-0, bye in week nine, 5-99-0 and 5-61-1 receiving. He finally scored his first TD in week 11 and hopefully there is more of that to come with DeShaun Watson coming back soon.

Terrace Marshall Jr. (CAR) - Another receiver who has been on a bit of a hot streak lately is Panthers second-year wideout, Terrace Marshall. Marshall, a former 2021 second-round pick, has been on a bit of a role ever since HC Matt Rhule was fired, and Robby Anderson was traded. Over his last four weeks, Marshall has tallied 4-87-0, 3-53-1, 1-43-0, and 3-76-0 stat lines. Week 10 was a disappointment for sure, but he still hauled in a long catch. Marshall rebounded the following week with 76 receiving yards.

Parris Campbell Jr. (IND) - The Colts have had a lot of change over the last few weeks, with the firing of their Offensive Coordinator, the benching of Matt Ryan, and the eventual firing of Frank Reich, and the re-emergence of Matt Ryan. Week 10 was the Colts' first game under new HC Jeff Saturday. It's only a one-game sample size, but Campbell led the Colts in receiving, hauling in seven receptions for 76 yards and a TD. Campbell has dealt with injuries throughout his career, but he is a very talented former second-round pick from just a few years ago (2019). Perhaps the new coach will continue to push for more Campbell targets. In week 11, Campbell stayed productive, with five receptions for 67 yards. Campbell remains a top waiver wire target.

Treylon Burks (TEN) - Treylon Burks has finally started to show some upside in this Titans offense. The first-round rookie had 111 yards on Thursday night, which marks his first game over 100 yards in his career. The Titans desperately need a spark on offense, and perhaps Burks is that guy. The Titans have games vs the Bengals, Eagles, and Jaguars over the next three weeks. Burks is available in about 80% of NFL Fantasy leagues. If he's available on your waiver wire, he could be a great addition down the stretch.

Also Consider:

Christian Watson (GB), Nico Collins (HOU), Odell Beckham Jr. (FA)





David Njoku (CLE) - Week 11 was Njoku's first game back from his ankle injury, and he was eased back into action with just two receptions for 17 yards. However, he remains one of the top three weapons in this Browns' receiving game and should not be on waiver wires. If someone dropped Njoku in your league, add him as soon as you can. I expect a lot more production when QB DeShaun Watson returns, as well.

Evan Engram (JAX) - Coming off his bye week, Evan Engram makes for an intriguing pick up in most fantasy leagues. Rostered in just 37.2% of NFL Fantasy leagues, Engram is the TE14 on the season. If you are dealing with injuries (Ertz, Goedert, Pitts, Everett), perhaps Engram can fill the void.
