Sometimes, you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of Lester's Legends under-the-radar players who could possibly pull out a win for you this week.

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins

Kirk Cousins replaced Robert Griffin III and threw for 381 yards and three touchdowns last week against the Atlanta Falcons. There are plenty of reasons to trot him out there against the Dallas Cowboys this week. The Boys have allowed a league-high 297.4 yards per game and 2.1 touchdowns.

Bobby Rainey, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bobby Rainey is averaging 80.3 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in his past six games. He faces the St. Louis Rams. The Rams have allowed 105.4 yards and 1.1 touchdowns per game.

Michael Crabtree, WR, San Francisco 49ers

Michael Crabtree is averaging 51 yards since his return. He scored his first touchdown last week. Crabtree should be a solid play against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed 254.9 yards and two touchdowns per game.

Brian Hartline, WR, Miami Dolphins

Brian Hartline is averaging 81.5 yards and 0.5 touchdowns in the past four games. He had 69 yards in the first meeting with Buffalo.
