Fantasy Football playoffs are right around the corner and there could be some reinforcements coming soon for your team! Ahead of Week 11, a handful of RBs who have missed action could have a chance to return.
Chris Carson, Joe Mixon, Raheem Mostert and Austin Ekeler all will have a chance of playing this week, which would be huge for fantasy owners.
Mixon was held out of week 10 and boy could the Bengals used him. The Bengals play Washington this week, and it would be a great week for him to return if he is healthy. Washington allows 126 yards on the ground a game. That would not be a bad match-up for Mixon if he can in fact go. He will need to practice this week consistently before he is ruled a full go on Sunday.
Carson will face the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. That is if he can in fact go. The Seahawks are on a two game losing streak right now and they will face the Arizona Cardinals who are coming off a huge win against Buffalo. The Cardinals allow an average of 120.2 yards per game on the ground. So if Carson can go it would be a favorable play.
Austin Ekeler has missed the most time, but he posted a video on his social media running. This week the Chargers face the Jets. That would be a great match-up if Ekeler can in fact play. Ekeler has missed quite a bit of time but he looks to be on pace for this week. It would be a great gift for fantasy owners if he can play before week 12. Many thought he would have been out for multiple weeks.
The 49ers play the Rams, and JaMycal Hasty is the latest running back for the Niners who went down to injury. If Raheem Moster can in fact return this week it would give the Niners a big boost. The problem is they are playing the Rams. The Rams are only allowing 96.8 yards on the ground a game. Mostert may not be the best player to start in week 11. But he would be a good flex if he is healthy.
