When the #Fantasy playoffs come around, there are often a few difference makers that pop up on the #Waiver Wire who can help fantasy teams late in the year. 2017 will be no different, and week 10 proved that there are still plenty of unowned players [VIDEO]that can make a difference late. Let’s take a look at which players should be targeted on the waiver wire in week 11.

1. Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (2% Ownership)

The best player on the field for the Chargers on Sunday was Austin Ekeler, as he had 5 catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns. He also tacked on 42 yards on the ground [VIDEO]. Unfortunately, Ekeler lost the fumble that would eventually cost the Chargers the game, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that Ekeler will have a Danny Woodhead like role with the Chargers moving forward.

2. Packers RB Jamaal Williams (2.7% Ownership)

Aaron Jones will likely be out for the rest of the fantasy season with a sprained MCL and Ty Montgomery also got hurt on Sunday. That leaves BYU running back Jamaal Williams to shoulder the load. He had just 67 yards on 20 carries on Sunday for just 6 fantasy points, but that doesn’t change the fact that he will now receive a majority of the workload moving forward. Add him from the waiver wire, because he should be available.

3. Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (11.7% Ownership)

I suggested adding him last week [VIDEO], and those bold enough to start him were rewarded with an eleven point fantasy performance as he received 10 carries and caught three passes. The Patriots are clearly committed to getting Burkhead involved in the offense, and that makes him a worthwhile fantasy addition moving forward.

4. Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (4.1% Ownership)

A.J. Green obviously gets a majority of the targets in this offense, but LaFell finally emerged as the clear secondary option for Andy Dalton against the Titans. He pulled down 6 catches for 95 yards and a touchdown and he would have been the leading receiver for the Bengals if A.J. Green didn’t rip off a 70 yard receiving touchdown late. LaFell is a player to add and keep an eye on in the coming weeks.

5. Browns WR Corey Coleman (11% Ownership)

This is a stash add, as Coleman is just now making his return from the IR. The talented Browns wide receiver flashed his potential in the first game of the year, scoring a touchdown and putting up 11 fantasy points. Coleman should immediately become the top receiver on the Browns when he gets back, and that makes him worth the speculative add. #Aj Green
