Brian Hill will fill in as the Falcons' starting running back and has a good matchup in Week 11
Derrick Henry has quietly been giving fantasy owners decent numbers this fantasy season. In Week 10, he had his best game with 188 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He's had more than 75 rushing yards in seven out of 10 games so far this season and has 10 total touchdowns. Those aren't quite Aaron Jones numbers, but they'll work. However, both Henry and Jones are on a bye so the touchdowns are going to have to come from someone else in Week 11.
When looking to the waiver wire, fantasy owners should look at Brian Hill this week. Devonta Freeman has been struggling (zero rushing touchdowns, three receiving touchdowns, zero 100-yard rushing games) and he injured his foot in Week 10. With Ito Smith already on injured reserve., the next man up is Hill. He's ranked No. 14 for Week 11 against a Panthers run defense that allows the third-most fantasy points to running backs. Hill is a solid RB2 for this week.
Teams on bye: Green Bay, New York Giants, Seattle, Tennessee
