Sometimes, when all seems lost, when you forgot to pick up that can't-miss waiver wire option or your fantasy team is either awful or injured, you must resort to desperate measures.

Fortunately for you, there are still some under-the-radar players who can help you in Week 11, whether it's a running back being given more opportunities or a wide receiver coming back from injury.

Here's a look at three under-the-radar players who will make your trust in them pay off in Week 11.


Marcel Reece, RB, Oakland Raiders

With Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson "long shots" to play in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints (per Steve Corkran of Sporting News), Marcel Reece has another opportunity to help fantasy owners.

Reese had nine fantasy points last week in Baltimore (ESPN standard leagues), accumulating 104 total yards. 

Now Reese faces a Saints run defense that has allowed 5.1 yards per carry (31st in the NFL) and nine rushing touchdowns (tied for 22nd) this season.

The 27-year-old isn't a bad fantasy play if you need help.


Brian Hartline, WR, Miami Dolphins

The knock on Brian Hartline is that he has only scored one touchdown this season, but he's unquestionably the Dolphins' No. 1 receiver and he faces the Buffalo Bills in Week 11, a team that has allowed 18 passing touchdowns this season (tied for 27th in the NFL).

Hartline has 741 receiving yards this season, 10th among all receivers. If he can find a way to score against the Bills, he should reward fantasy owners handsomely. 


Danny Amendola, WR, St. Louis Rams

Anyone who has followed Danny Amendola knows he's a warrior.

Amendola suffered a scary clavicle injury in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, only to come back last week and explode for 102 yards on 11 catches against the San Francisco 49ers.

Now the fiery 27-year-old faces a New York Jets pass defense that hasn't been the same without Darrelle Revis.  

Something tells me Amendola will make an impact on the game.
