“Fantasy football”: replacements of choice

“Fantasy football”: replacements of choice

If there is one consistency in the NFL, it is that the injured list continues to grow.

The 11th week of activities of the season has not spared many “fantasy football” fans, who will need to find replacements via waivers. Here are six players to target:

– Taylor Heinicke, quarterback (available in 86% of Yahoo! leagues)

Since Taylor Heinicke replaced Carson Wentz behind the Commanders’ center, the Washington team has gone 4-1. Head coach Ron Rivera said he intends to continue to trust the 29-year-old center. The latter will face the New York Giants twice and the Atlanta Falcons once in the next four weeks.

– Isiah Pacheco, running back (available in 36% of Yahoo! leagues)

For a little while now, the Kansas City Chiefs seem to want to make Isiah Pacheco their main running back. The freshman finally broke through last week, amassing 107 yards on 15 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers. Also, Clyde Edwards-Helaire looks hurt. This will leave even more room for Pacheco in the backfield.

– Latavius ​​Murray, running back (available in 76% of Yahoo! leagues)

On Monday, the Denver Broncos entered the name of Melvin Gordon III on waivers, while Chase Edmonds suffers from an ankle injury. Thus, Latavius ​​Murray will be the main ground production manager for his team in the coming weeks.

– Treylon Burks, wide receiver (available in 80% of Yahoo! leagues)

Selected in the first round (18th overall) of the last NFL draft, Treylon Burks was to replace AJ Brown at the Tennessee Titans. He wasn’t able to do that before last week’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers. During the game, the young man caught seven of the eight passes sent in his direction for gains of 111 yards. If he continues his momentum, Burks could prove to be very profitable for the poolers.

– Demarcus Robinson, wide receiver (available in 95% of Yahoo! leagues)

In two of the Baltimore Ravens’ last three games, Demarcus Robinson has been targeted at least eight times and has a minimum of 64 yards. If he’s able to get the attention of quarterback Lamar Jackson again, the 28-year-old receiver will continue to rack up the points.

– Juwan Johnson, tight end (available in 69% of Yahoo! leagues)

The New Orleans Saints player isn’t the ‘sexiest’ option for someone desperate for a tight end. The problem is that there are not a lot of options at this position. Juwan Johnson, however, has found the paying zone five times in his last five games.
