The waiver wire is calling your name once again. Some key injuries the past few weeks have opened the door for a few young running backs. With fantasy playoffs just around the corner, the right pickup now could change your season...

Mike Goodson, RBCarolina Panthers (33 percent owned)

Back to back weeks with a 100-yard rusher is nothing new for the Carolina Panthers—doing that without their top two backs is.  

After a solid game at Tampa that was attributed to a soft matchup, Goodson impressed everyone with a 150 total yards (120 rushing) against the Ravens in Week 11.  

Goodson will get another full workload this weekend against Cleveland, which should translate into 100-plus all purpose yards.  He’s a great flex play in all leagues, and a potential RB2 in yardage-heavy leagues.

Keiland Williams, RBWashington Redskins (38 percent owned)

It’s always dangerous playing with a Shanahan backfield.  But with injuries limiting Clinton Portis and Ryan Torain, it appears that Williams is in line to get the bulk of work in Week 12 against Minnesota.  

The Vikings run defense is not what it once was, and a full day of work is more than you can count on for a lot of running backs these days.  

Williams is a solid flex play this week against Minnesota, and should contribute down the stretch with solid matchups against Tampa and Dallas in the weeks to follow.
