In the Scope Targets: Top Fantasy Football Week 11 Free Agent Finds
Now, let’s shift our focus to the hidden gems that could make a significant impact on your fantasy roster moving forward. These under-the-radar talents are waiting to be discovered after the Week 11 waiver wire clears.
Tyler Conklin (TE, New York Jets) | 11.1% Rostered
Tyler Conklin has quietly put up solid numbers, with five out of nine games surpassing 9.8 PPR points. The reason he’s likely unrostered is that he sits at TE21 on the season. However, the absence of any touchdowns is what’s affected his overall ranking. Still, in the past two weeks, he’s been the TE7 on a points-per-game basis after a strong performance of seven receptions for 70 yards in Week 10.
Conklin has a promising outlook as the Jets’ second-leading pass-catcher, totaling 42 targets, 33 receptions and 363 receiving yards. Furthermore, he faces five consecutive favorable matchups for tight ends from Week 12 to Week 16. If you need tight end depth or a spot start, Conklin is a worthy addition after the Week 11 waiver wire runs.
A.T. Perry (WR, New Orleans Saints) | 0.0% Rostered
With Michael Thomas sidelined and concerns about a potentially extended absence, A.T. Perry steps into the spotlight. Perry saw action when Thomas left the field in Week 10 with a knee injury, securing four targets and turning two of them into 38 yards and a touchdown.
A talented rookie out of Wake Forest, Perry’s skill set drew comparisons to Thomas during his college days. Leading the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) in receiving yards (1,096) and ranking second in receptions (81) during his senior year, Perry boasts the short-area quickness and reliable hands you’d want in an NFL receiver. With the Saints on a bye, consider grabbing Perry for a no investment on Sunday morning. His potential makes him an enticing prospect for the remainder of the season.
