Fantasy Football Waiver Wire, Week 11: Carson Palmer, Denarius Moore Good Pickups

The Oakland Raiders have been an inconsistent football team, so it's hard to believe you can actually rely on any of their offensive weapons as reliable options. They'll be facing a fairly solid Minnesota Vikings defense, so it could be tough sledding for anyone on the Raiders squad.

Jacoby Ford is out for a while with a foot sprain which means Carson Palmer is probably targeting Denarius Moore for the big plays in the wide receiving game. If somehos Moore is on the waiver wire, grab him. Moore has the ability to have a big game if he's the main focus for the Raiders against the Vikings defense. Palmer can also be a great pick-up if he's around because he'll get big yardage totals and TDs to offset his interceptions. It depends on how consistent you can believe the Raiders QB can be if the game becomes pass-oriented.

The Raiders defense is worth picking up against a sputtering Vikings offense that has been inconsistent since Christian Ponder took over. If you trust their front, there should be opportunities for sacks against a struggling Minnesota offensive line and interceptions if Ponder tries to force throws.
