If you have a little uncertainty at the running back position, you may need to search the waivers to see who is available for a plug and play. These are the top Week 11 fantasy football streamers at running back that may be available for a pickup.
Week 11 Fantasy Football Streamers at RB
Damien Harris, NE (at HOU)
Somehow, Damien Harris is still rostered in less than 60% of ESPN leagues. The offense ran through him last week against Baltimore. He had 22 carries for 121 yards. Harris had more carries than Newton had attempted passes. Rex Burkhead was the next closest New England running back to him in carries, with six. He has established himself as the dominant ball-carrier on this team. Harris looks explosive and decisive. Over the last four weeks, he is running at 5.68 yards/carry. He is a borderline must-start against Houston who is 30th in points given up to the running back position, making him the perfect streamer for your team.
Salvon Ahmed, MIA (at DEN)
It seems like the Dolphins have a similar mentality to the Steelers when it comes to running back usage — they make one player a workhorse. When Myles Gaskin was healthy, no other running back saw notable touches. Insert Salvon Ahmed. He had 21 carries for 85 yards against the Chargers, and he scored a touchdown. Gaskin remains on IR. The team just released Jordan Howard. Matt Breida is banged up. Breida may return this week, so that is something to monitor, but it should be Ahmed’s backfield.
The Dolphins take on the Broncos and, based on how these two teams are playing, the Dolphins could take an early lead like they seemingly do every week right now. That would make for a good game script for Ahmed to be among the top fantasy football streamers.

Kalen Ballage, LAC (vs. NYJ)
This one is hard to trust, but I’m just taking what the Chargers are giving me. The Chargers are showing us that if we need to put any of their RBs in our fantasy lineups, its Kalen Ballage right now. He had 18 carries last week and five receptions, playing on 73% of the snaps. This team doesn’t seem to trust Joshua Kelley enough to give him more touches. With Justin Jackson sidelined right now, Ballage is likely to get the majority of the carries again, making him a solid streamer this week.
