With Week 11 of the fantasy football season bearing down on us like Evel Knievel, it’s time to hit that waiver wire harder than a ramp over the Grand Canyon.

Leagues are won and lost on the fantasy waiver wire, and just because the playoffs are around the corner doesn’t mean you can relax and stop patrolling waivers and free agency.

The following stars not only deserve to be picked up on waivers, they could very well end up in your lineup as a starter this week.

Which Player is the Best Long-Term Investment?

Lance Ball—The Denver Broncos haven’t adapted a run-first offense, they have turned into a run-only offense and Lance Ball is the benefactor.

With Knowshon Moreno going on injured reserve and Willis McGahee battling a hamstring injury and a broken hand, Ball will carry the workload for the Broncos.

Ball saw 30 carries last week, and as good as the New York Jets are on defense, you would be a fool not to start him in your fantasy leagues.

Laurent Robinson—While three catches is very disappointing from the man who was supposed to be the successor of Miles Austin, the fact that two of them were for touchdowns makes it a bit more bearable.

It’s abundantly clear that Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff trust Robinson in the red zone almost more than anyone else.

With four touchdowns in his last three games, Robinson is one of the hottest commodities in fantasy football and a must-own.

Damian WilliamsThe Tennessee Titans have been looking for a solid No. 2 wide receiver since the injury to Kenny Britt forced Nate Washington to become the top guy.

They have found that No. 2 guy with Damian Williams and he is running with it.

With at least four catches each of the last three games, his 200 yards and two touchdowns make him a solid add via waivers and his matchup against Atlanta is beatable this week.
