Waiver wire players to consider with Robert Woods inactive

The Robert Woods news is unexpected. We’ve got a list of alternatives to consider in fantasy football.

The Los Angeles Rams stunned all of us on Sunday when they announced that Robert Woods is inactive for Week 11 Sunday Night Football. The team announced he is dealing with a personal issue, and it leaves fantasy football owners scrambling late Sunday.

If you were planning on starting Woods today, there are limited options remaining to replace him. Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson tonight are all owned, while Tyreek Hill, Keenan Allen and Mike Williams won’t be available for you tomorrow. Instead, you need to find players owned in less than 50 percent of fantasy leagues.

Some players to consider for the four teams left to play:

Bears: Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller

Rams: Josh Reynolds, Mike Thomas

Chiefs: Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson

Chargers: Andre Patton

Of those names, Reynolds, Gabriel, Hardman, and Robinson are the best options. I would argue Reynolds is the best option with Woods and Brandin Cooks both inactive. Of the Chiefs receivers, I’d lean Hardman a little over Robinson.
