Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Week 11 Pickups

With fantasy football playoffs quickly approaching, and with the trade deadline already passed in many leagues, the waiver wire becomes even more important. With that in mind, let's get right into the best pickups for Week 11:

RB: James Starks, Green Bay Packers

Ownership Percentage (Yahoo): 26

Starks and Ty Montgomery were the only active running backs for the Packers on Sunday, but it wasn't exactly a time-share. Starks, making his return from knee surgery, started the game and played the majority of the meaningful snaps even though the game script (Green Bay giving up 21 first-quarter points and trailing by multiple touchdowns all day) seemingly would have called for Montgomery's pass-catching skills. Alas, Starks totaled 44 yards and a touchdown on 10 touches, while Montgomery finished with a mere five touches and 20 yards. While Starks is just another guy in terms of talent, he's pretty clearly the lead running back, which alone makes him worth owning. For what it's worth, I wouldn't drop Montgomery just yet, as it just doesn't make much sense for Green Bay to ignore a superior talent down the stretch. (Getty)
