Is it finally time to part with Le’Veon Bell?

The fantasy football playoffs are inching closer, so the moves you make now could decide if you’re taking home some postseason hardware.

Here is a look at the waiver wire moves to make heading into Week 11.

Adds

Titans WR Corey Davis

Remember when the Titans couldn’t even move the ball? They’ve looked like a different team in back-to-back impressive wins at Dallas and at home vs. New England. A big part of that has been Corey Davis, who has a combined 20 targets over the past two games while grabbing 13 balls for 181 yards and a score. That’s after catching eight passes for 83 yards over his previous three games. With Davis and Marcus Mariota now in sync, the second-year receiver is worth picking up.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny

It appears Seattle is finally giving their first-round pick a chance to shine, and he’s running with it. Against the Rams, Rashaad Penny ran for 108 yards and a score on just 12 carries. That should earn him more carries going forward, and if he keeps performing like this, you could be landing a major steal this week.

Bears WR Allen Robinson

The old Allen Robinson was on full display against the Lions, as he torched them for 133 yards and two scores on six catches (8 targets). It was his first 100-yard game since 2016 with the Jaguars, back when he was a viable fantasy option. After his ACL tear wiped out his 2017 season, Robinson is rounding back into form, making him a great addition if you need fantasy help at receiver.

Jets RB Elijah McGuire

It’s tough sledding to find a capable running back this late in the fantasy season, but Elijah McGuire is now someone to watch for. After coming off injured reserve, McGuire is slowly earning more touches with the Jets. He’s now ran for 60 yards on 13 carries to go with six catches for 64 yards over the last two games. With the Jets in a full rebuild, he could see his touches increase, so if you’re in desperate need of running back help, he’s someone to keep in mind.

Drop

Steelers RB Le’Veon Ball

Assuming you’re in a league where waivers aren’t completed until Wednesday, you’ve still got time to see if Le’Veon Bell reports to the Steelers and is eligible to play this season. Bell must report to Pittsburgh by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, and if he’s not there, you need to drop Bell in all leagues outside of keeper leagues.

This will go down as one of, if not the biggest fantasy bust of all time if Bell doesn’t play in 2018 after being drafted in the top three of just about every fantasy league.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams

With Aaron Jones taking control of the Packers’ backfield, Jamaal Williams is barely seeing the field these days. He’s got just 16 touches over his last three games, including three rushes for three yards against the Dolphins on Sunday. Williams can be safely dropped.
