Week 11: Fantasy Football Running Back & Wide Receiver Streaming Options

Matt Brandon Nov 18th 6:28 PM EST.

It’s more popular to stream quarterbacks and tight ends than running backs and receivers, but with the Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos getting a rest this week, it’s pivotal to identify a few potential streamers at the running back and receiver positions. With so many playmakers on bye weeks such as Darrell Henderson, Melvin Gordon, Javonte Williams, Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham, Van Jefferson, Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, and Tim Patrick, fantasy owners are likely scrambling to find someone to plug into that flex spot. 

It doesn’t help that another top tier running back went down with an injury in Week 10. After losing Derrick Henry in Week 8, Aaron Jones suffered an MCL sprain and will be out for one or two weeks. With Jones sidelined, AJ Dillon was probably picked up off the waiver wire or already owned. So let’s dig deep to find some potential streamers to help you get that pivotal win in Week 11. There is not a lot of talent left to potentially stream so keep in mind that these recommendations come with great risk. 

Running Backs To Stream

Wayne Gallman, Atlanta Falcons

Gallman is probably available on the waiver wire and he could make sense to pick up ahead of tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. The Falcons are expected to be without their top playmaker in Cordarrelle Patterson. Mike Davis will probably be the starting running back, but he’s been terrible all season long. The Falcons are finally realizing this fact, especially after Davis has only accumulated 31 rushing yards on 13 carries over his last two games. Gallman was solid last year for the Giants while Saquon Barkley was sidelined and he was used heavily in Atlanta’s Week 10 loss to the Cowboys. Gallman turned 15 carries into 55 yards and caught one pass for an additional 21 yards. If Patterson is indeed unable to suit up tonight, Gallman has a great shot at seeing 15+ touches against the Patriots. And although New England is excellent at defending the pass, they rank in the bottom third of the league at limiting opposing running backs.

D’Onta Foreman, Tennessee Titans

Foreman was most likely available on the waiver wire heading into Week 11. If you added him this week, he makes some sense as a potential streaming option at the running back position. Since King Henry went down, the Titans have utilized a running-back-by-committee approach. In Week 9, Jeremy McNichols led the committee with 45% of Tennessee’s snaps, followed by Adrian Peterson with 21%, and Foreman with 21%. However, Foreman saw the most touches in Week 10’s close win over the New Orleans Saints. Foreman turned 13 touches into 78 total yards. The Titans are a run-first offense despite the absence of Henry, and Foreman has proven to be the most capable North-South runner on this team. The Texans allow the second-most rushing yards per game to opposing running backs. Foreman is also probably the best short-yardage back on the roster, which bodes well for his value if the Titans get into goal-line situations. I think he punches one into the end zone in a potential blowout.

Eno Benjamin, Arizona Cardinals

Arizona faces a Seattle Seahawks defense that is currently allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Benjamin didn’t see any meaningful reps until Chase Edmonds went down with a serious injury. Now, James Conner is the primary back with Benjamin serving as a change-of-pace rusher. In Week 9’s blowout victory over the 49ers, Benjamin turned nine carries into 39 yards and his lone touchdown of the season. Last week against the Panthers, the Cardinals were on the opposite side of a blowout so Benjamin only got six touches. However, we just saw Seattle’s offense totally out of whack in Russell Wilson’s first game back, and the Cardinals could get out to a large lead with Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins expected back in Week 11. That bodes well for Benjamin, who sees more usage when the Cardinals are winning by more than one score. Considering Seattle’s struggles on both sides of the ball, I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Benjamin found the end zone on Sunday.

Wide Receivers To Stream

Robby Anderson, Carolina Panthers

I had sworn off ever recommending Anderson after his dreadful season with Sam Darnold under center. Despite being drafted in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts, fantasy owners likely cut bait a long time ago. However, with Cam Newton now at the helm, Anderson’s value should see a significant spike. Anderson caught four of the six balls thrown his way last week against Arizona, and scored a touchdown in the red zone on one of the few plays when Newton was the quarterback instead of P.J. Walker. With a matchup looming against a Washington defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts, Anderson could produce his best outing of the season with Newton starting.

Rashod Bateman, Baltimore Ravens

Bateman should be owned in most leagues, but if you need a wide receiver in Week 11, the rookie could be your guy. Bateman has developed a rapport with Lamar Jackson and has been targeted at least six times since entering the lineup as a starter. The rookie hauled in six-of-eight targets for 80 yards last week, leading the Ravens in receiving yards. This week, the Ravens get a matchup with a generous Chicago Bears secondary that is allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Additionally, the Bears have allowed three receivers to finish within the top 10 at the position over the last three weeks. While Bateman probably won’t put up top-10 numbers, I like his chances of producing 13+ fantasy points.

Elijah Moore, New York Jets

After a slow start to the season, the rookie wideout has produced double-digit fantasy points in three consecutive weeks. He had his breakout performance in Week 9 against the Colts, hauling in seven-of-eight targets for 84 yards and two trips to the end zone. He has now scored three touchdowns in his last two games and he has been targeted at least six time his four consecutive outings. Although the Dolphins have played very well recently on defense, they still allow the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Moore should deliver double-digit points quite easily, especially in PPR formats.
