Quarterbacks will dictate how your fantasy football team fares in Week 11 of the NFL season, according to Jim Cramer.
In the spotlight will be Green Bay Packers (6-3) quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who Cramer predicts is going to have a fantastic game at home when his team faces the Philadelphia Eagles (7-2) on Sunday. He says anyone that goes up against Rodgers or Denver Broncos (7-2) quarterback Peyton Manning will be in trouble. However, Cramer believes this weekend we'll see a Manning that looks different from the one we've seen all season when the Broncos take on the St. Louis Rams (3-6).
"People don't realize the St. Louis D has been a quarterback stopper," he said. "I think Peyton is going to look a little bit more like the way he did in the Super Bowl this weekend. It's going to surprise people who want to own Peyton this weekend. Of course you have to play him. To not play Peyton is ridiculous."
So with hot commodities like Rodgers and Manning already taken across fantasy leagues, who should fantasy owners look to pick up off the waiver wires to beef up their teams? Here are Jim Cramer's top waiver wire picks for Week 11.
QUARTERBACK: RYAN MALLETT
The Houston Texans (4-5) announced Ryan Fitzpatrick will be benched, giving Ryan Mallett his first start against the Cleveland Browns (6-3) on Sunday.
Cramer says: "I think the Texans were bad because of Fitz. Let's see what happens with a real quarterback."
