New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore headlines Week 11’s fantasy football waiver wire pickups
Navigating the waiver wire is incredibly important to fantasy football success. Each week, Jets X-Factor dives into the waiver wire for the must-adds to your fantasy football team.
Elijah Moore makes a return appearance, along with some familiar faces for Jets fans. Let’s move on to Week 11.
All roster percentages are from Yahoo Sports.
Cam Newton (17% Rostered)
Cam Newton made his return to the NFL and instantly made his presence felt by stopping a skidding Panthers team from taking yet another loss.
He gets to face Ron Rivera in what will be somewhat of a revenge game, and his rushing floor should provide good production as long as he’s the starter.
Tua Tagovailoa (23% Rostered)
Brian Flores announced that Tua Tagovailoa would get the nod against the Jets in Week 11. This could serve as a perfect bounce-back game for the young quarterback, as the Jets defense has had no answers for opponents this season.
He’s a plug-and-play player this week.
D’Onta Foreman (6% Rostered)
With Derrick Henry out, it has been D’Onta Foreman who’s started to carve his role as the lead back with the Tennessee Titans.
Foreman is showing to get it done on the ground and through the air and should continue to see his usage increase. He’s nearing a must-add in all fantasy football formats.
Wayne Gallman Jr (1% Rostered)
With Cordarrelle Patterson hurting and Mike Davis continuing to lose snaps, Gallman is worth a speculative add in fantasy football leagues.
If Patterson can’t go in Week 11, Gallman instantly has flex appeal.
Jeff Wilson Jr (20% Rostered)
Jeff Wilson was activated from the PUP list and instantly was given a role in the San Francisco 49ers offense. Wilson rushed 10 times for only 28 yards, but he was the change of pace back for the 49ers.
His role should continue this way going forward, which makes him an intriguing option.
Elijah Moore (51% Rostered)
Elijah Moore nearly saw his rostership double since last week, but I’ll keep him on this list until he’s no longer able to qualify.
Moore has 10+ fantasy points in each of the last four weeks. In that time, he’s also scored four touchdowns.
The Jets get a Dolphins team this week that allows the sixth-most points for wide receivers in fantasy football, so the rookie should see his number called often.
Darnell Mooney (46% Rostered)
Coming off a bye, many people may have forgotten about the WR1 in Chicago. No, it’s not Allen Robinson (surprisingly); it’s Darnell Mooney.
Mooney had his breakout game in Week 9, scoring two touchdowns. He’s Justin Fields’ favorite target and should continue to be a flex-worthy option going forward.
Robby Anderson (39% Rostered)
With Sam Darnold at quarterback, I would have never thought about putting Robby Anderson on this list. Now that Cam Newton is under center, Anderson could see some spark of life added to his game.
He scored a touchdown in Week 10, and it’s possible he could do it again against a struggling Washington secondary.

Dan Arnold (27% Rostered)
In the last five weeks, Dan Arnold hasn’t seen less than five targets go his way. In the last three games, he’s had at least seven targets and 60 receiving yards.
Arnold is becoming a trusted option for rookie Trevor Lawrence and is a great stash to add in fantasy football leagues.
Tyler Conklin (30% Rostered)
Tyler Conklin is turning into everything people thought Irv Smith would be in this Minnesota offense. Despite trading for former Jets tight end Chris Herndon, it’s been Conklin who’s been seeing a large portion of the receiving work.
He scored two touchdowns in Week 10 and should continue to be a trusted option in the red zone for Kirk Cousins.
