UPDATE: Ronnie Hillman will be out at least two weeks with a midfoot sprain. This changes the pickup strategy on the Week 11 Waiver Wire, mainly because we don’t know the status of Montee Ball entering the Broncos’ matchup with the Rams. C.J. Anderson gains short term value for the next few weeks if you need a plug-and-play, but if Ball’s healthy and active this weekend, I’d wager Anderson’s splitting carries, at best. He’s worth an add, and if he plays well, could run away with the gig; however that’s a low probability outcome. In deeper leagues, you may as well snag Juwan Thompson for nothing with all the attention focused on Ball and Anderson. Thompson could sneak his way back into the mix too. Basically, Hillman’s absence gives Ball the opportunity to regain his former starting role and keep it. Wouldn’t it be dandy if your first round pick started delivering first round value? Even if it’s ten weeks after you actually needed it.

Ronnie Hillman injured his foot early, giving C.J. Anderson (not Juwan Thompson) enough leash to rush his way into the Broncos backfield conversation. As if it wasn’t confusing enough already. With the way the Denver/Oakland game got out of hand, it wasn’t surprising to see them rest Hillman, but a path for Montee Ball to regain his job has been forged. Until we get to witness how the touch distribution breaks down, I’d treat the Anderson breakout as nothing more than an aberration. Moving forward I’d want Hillman, Ball then Anderson, in that order. Anderson’s worth a spec add for deep leagues, but don’t pick him up thinking he’s a safe start… Fred Jackson was surprisingly in uniform for the Bills, but he was clearly on a limited snap count. His status must be monitored closely with Buffalo playing Thursday night; still, anticipate his touch total rising against the Dolphins. By how much? Look, if I was able to predict the future, I’d do something higher paying than a Fantasy Football analyst, and be right more often. Between Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown, neither should be considered a startable option, but Dixon looks like a better bet to see more carries of the duo. Brown ended up with 13 to Dixon’s 9 against the Chiefs, however a healthier Jackson means fewer snaps, and looks in the passing game, for Brown… Don’t forget about Jonas Gray coming off the bye. He’s averaged 14.5 carries over the Patriots’ last two… Ryan Mathews either. Expect Mathews to regain lead back status in San Diego and see 15-20 touches a game. Hold Branden Oliver if you can, though; as a wait-and-see precautionary move. It’d be nice to see how the touch distribution actually shakes out first… Tre Mason. Please, he’s getting the majority of carries for the Rams, pick him up. Mason’s awesome and no one’s seemed to notice. He’s going to matter in the Fantasy playoffs… Bishop Sankey is below the 60-percent ownership threshold for the first time this season. I find that confusing. While he hasn’t been good, Sankey’s past four weeks have been his most productive of the year. He’s averaging 17 touches a game in that span. And I guarantee Ponce de LeonWashington won’t steal his goal line touches on a regular basis. Sankey’s a solid depth RB with upside down the stretch… With the way that people were asking start/sit questions Sunday morning, you’d assume Charles Sims was already in the Hall of Fame. That, may take sometime. Now, there was good news, Sims saw the plurality of carries among Tampa RBs: eight; for an unimpressive 23 yards. Plus, he lost a fumble and got stuffed from the one. I see the upside with Sims, I do, just don’t go mental thinking he’s a game changer on the Week 11 waiver wire. Bobby Rainey is still going to be involved and persists as the better short term option… Carlos Hyde would have real value if Frank Gore went away. Problem is, Gore is a secret highlander, he’s basically immortal. Hyde found paydirt, but only had four carries; doesn’t sound like a wise investment. He’s nothing more than a handcuff. And, don’t discount the possibility that Gore simply convinces Hyde to quit football. He’s done it to every other backup he’s had… Lamar Miller fell on his already aggravated shoulder and only got a handful of touches after. Damien Williams received more of the work than Daniel Thomas, which is worth noting with the Dolphins having a quick turnaround, playing Thursday night. Williams looked better too… In the “praying the starter gets injured” power rankings, it goes Knile Davis > Joseph Randle > Alfred Blue > Carlos Hyde.
