2022 NFL Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire Adds
Not that I have ever had good introductions to these articles, but I am at a total loss this week.
Some of you know that I am a Cowboys fan, and I had said all week that I just knew the Cowboys would find a way to lose. I knew it. My wife and daughters are Packers fans. My son on the other hand has chosen the path of pain and decided that Dallas is his favorite team, with Green Bay being his second favorite. He was so excited when Dallas was up 14, and I tried to warn him that so much game was left. It hurts more seeing him be upset than watching Dallas do what they seemingly always do in these situations. The toils of being a parent and a fan.
And now, let’s go to a clip.
Bye Weeks: Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
As always these waiver adds are mainly redraft focused and looking at deeper leagues; if you have questions for shallow leagues, where you start 2 DL/2 LB/2 DB many of these are likely a bit deeper than you need. All statistics are courtesy of Pro Football Reference. Please feel free to reach out to us for questions on any specific league; the more info you have the better!
2022 NFL Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire Adds – Linebackers
Isaiah McDuffie, Linebacker, Green Bay Packers
Rostered: ESPN .2%, Yahoo 0%, Sleeper 0%
With De’Vondre Campbell out against the Cowboys in Week 10, Quay Walker became the every-down linebacker. Isaiah McDuffie took over the role Quay had been playing and had 8 solos and 5 assists on an 82% snap share (his highest of the season). This is a short week for the Packers who play the Titans on Thursday night, so I would not be surprised to see Campbell sit again. With how run-heavy the Titans are if Campbell sits again this would be a good spot to add and play McDuffie.
Sione Takitaki, Linebacker, Cleveland Browns
Rostered: ESPN 2.3%, Yahoo 5%, Sleeper 0%
Jacob Phillips going on injured reserve, and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah being out with a knee injury, have coincided with the rise of Takitaki. In the past three weeks his snap share has gone 56.3% –> 84.9% –> 95.7%. In those three weeks, combined, he has had:
19 solos, 12 assists, 3 TFL, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble
That is a pretty darn nice stat line for three games. He and Deion Jones have been the two main linebackers during this time, with Sione being on the field more among the two. JOK is not a traditional linebacker anyway, so I don’t think his return would doom Takitaki, but keep an eye on that leading up to the Week 11 game against the Bills.
Jayon Brown, Linebacker, Las Vegas Raiders
Rostered: ESPN 2.4%, Yahoo 1%, Sleeper 0%
Life moves fast, doesn’t it? Another week and another Raiders linebacker listed. That seems odd, you may be thinking to yourself. Well, last week after our Week 10 IDP waiver wire video dropped Blake Martinez decided to retire. With Divine Deablo on IR and Denzel Perryman already starting, Jayon Brown fell into a 100% snap share against the Colts, and had 4 solos and 4 assists, with 1 fumble recovery. He’s a worthy bye week fill-in with the Raiders facing Denver in Week 11.
Tyrel Dodson, Linebacker, Buffalo Bills
Rostered: ESPN .1%, Yahoo 0% Sleeper 0%
Dodson! Dodson! We’ve got Dodson here!* And while most people do not care, we do. Tremaine Edmunds left the game against the Vikings with a groin injury, and those can be tricky to recover from. Dodson helped fill the Edmunds void and ended with a 63.9% snap share, and had 2 solos and 1 assist. Yes, that is a bit underwhelming, but looking forward the Bills play the Browns in Week 11, and the Browns are in the top half of the league (13th) in points allowed to linebackers. In Week 5 against the Steelers (with Edmunds out) Dodson played 84% of the defensive snaps and had 7 solos, 4 assists, and 1 sack. If Edmunds is out, I like Dodson as a play.
*Yes, I know the name of the character in Jurassic Park is Dodgson, not Dodson. But it is close enough for government work…and this article.
2022 NFL Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire Adds – Defensive Backs
Devin McCourty, Safety, New England Patriots
Rostered: ESPN 1.6%, Yahoo 6%, Sleeper 0%
Father Time has not caught up with Devin yet, who has a 96.5% snap share across all 9 of the Patriots game so far this year. Week 11 has the Patriots facing the New York Jets, who the Patriots are a game behind in the tight AFC East. The Jets are 3rd in points allowed to opposing safeties, and on the year Devin averages 4 solos, 1 assist, and .5 pass deflection. If he is on your waiver wire and you need defensive back help, feel free to dust off Devin and put him in your lineup.
Kerby Joseph, Safety, Detroit Lions
Rostered: ESPN 5.2%, Yahoo 1%, Sleeper 0%
My son was appalled when he found out that Mr. Joseph’s first name was not spelled like the titular Nintendo character. Regardless of spelling though, this Kerby has been an IDP beauty since the Week 6 bye the Lions had. From Week 7 on he has had 5, 6, 10, and 7 combined tackles to go with a 91% snap share. He should be much more rostered than he is regardless, but Week 11 has the Lions facing the Giants, who are 10th in points allowed to opposing safeties.
Nick Scott, Safety, Los Angeles Rams
Rostered: ESPN .5%, Yahoo 0%, Sleeper 0%
The 7th round 2019 draft pick of the Rams has a 97% snap share on the year as one of the starting safeties for the Rams. He nearly has career highs across the board already, with 30 solos, 15 assists, 3 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles, 1 TFL, and 1 interception. That is about 4 solos and 2 assists a game, which is fine for a bye week and injury fill-in play.
Alontae Taylor, Cornerback, New Orleans Saints
Rostered: ESPN 1.2%, Yahoo 0%, Sleeper 0%
Over the past four games, the Saints have played Alontae has a 95.85% snap share, with at least 3 solos a game. He is also averaging 1 pass deflection a game over the time frame. In Week 10 against Pittsburg, who gives up the most points to opposing cornerbacks, he had 6 solo tackles. Week 11 has the Saints squaring off against the Rams, who give up the 6th most points to opposing cornerbacks. Alontae is my streaming cornerback of choice this week.
2022 NFL Week 11 IDP Waiver Wire Adds – Defensive Linemen
Kingsley Enagbare, Defensive End/Edge/Linebacker, Green Bay Packers
Rostered: ESPN .1%, Yahoo 1%, Sleeper 0%
We made it this far without a repeat, but old habits (habits of one week are still habits, right?) die hard. With Rashan Gary out for the year, the 5th-round pick from South Carolina had his highest snap share of the year, with 74.7%. He had 3 solos, 2 assists, and 1 QB hit. He will continue to be the main edge rusher across from Preston Smith, and the Week 11 opponent of the Packers (Tennessee) is in the top 3 in terms of the number of QB pressures allowed when compared to the times the QB has dropped back to pass. If the Packers can build on their momentum from the offense springing to life in Week 10 against Dallas, and force Tennessee to throw more, we could be looking at a breakout game for Kingsley.
Yannick Ngakoue, Defensive End, Indianapolis Colts
Rostered: ESPN .9%, Yahoo 2%, Sleeper 0%
You want a boom or bust play for the week? Here ya go. If you have listened to or read my stuff for any semi-significant period-of-time, you know that Yannick is my go-to for the definition of boom or bust.
9 solos, 9 assists, 4 TFL, 5.5 sacks
Those are his stats. For the year. On a 70.94% snap share. He has at least half a sack in 6 of 9 games this year. The Colts play the Eagles in Week 11, which is a better matchup than you’d think with how much the Eagles run; the Eagles are 2nd in points allowed to opposing defensive ends. Again, not an optimal play. But if you need a potential boom, this looks like they play given that Kwity Paye is hurt once again.
Jerry Hughes, Defensive End, Houston Texans
Rostered: ESPN 2.5%, Yahoo 5%, Sleeper 0%
Speaking of players that Father Time seems to have passed over (34 is old for an NFL defensive lineman), Jerry Hughes is quietly having a nice year in Houston. He has slightly more than a 61% snap share on the year, and the result of that has been 17 solos, 6 assists, 9 TFL, 8 sacks, 1 pass deflection, 1 forced fumble, and 1 interception. He has at least 1 sack in five games this year, including the past three games in a row. Week 11 has the Texans facing the Commanders, and the Commanders give up the 6th most points to opposing defensive ends on the year. Jerry feels like a good bet for another sack.
Harrison Phillips, Defensive Tackle, Minnesota Vikings
Rostered: ESPN .7%, Yahoo 0%, Sleeper 0%
Last week’s pick for a defensive tackle here, Kenny Clark, ended Week 10 against Dallas with 2 solos, 2 assists, 1 TFL, and 1 sack. We are going back to the same well this week, and that means another defensive tackle facing the Cowboys. On the year Harrison has 11 solos, 17 assists, 2 TFL, 1.5 sacks, and 1 fumble recovery to go with his 63.37% snap share, which is the highest among Vikings defensive linemen. A sack or TFL is likely too much to ask for, but he should be good for several tackles.
