Match ups I Like:
Eddie Lacy (PHI): Lacy has scored double-digit fantasy points in three straight games, and five times of his last six contests. In Green Bay against a Mark Sanchez-led Philly team I expect Lacy to have another solid game.
Alfred Morris (TB): Tampa Bay has proven to be a vulnerable defense, giving up big games to Julio Jones, Justin Forsett, and two from Steven Jackson. Coming off the bye with RGII at quarterback, Morris should be able to get across the goal line this weekend.
Jerrick McKinnon (@CHI): The Bears defense has completely lost the ability to stop the run. I would start any Viking I got this weekend.
Match ups I Don’t Like:
C.J Anderson (@ST. Louis): In recent weeks the Rams defense has stifled top running backs holding them to a small yards-per-carry average (Week 6, Frank Gore: 2.4 yards per carry; Week 7, Marshawn Lynch: 2.9 yards per carry; Week 9, Gore: 3.5 yards per carry; Week 10, Andre Ellington 1.3 yards per carry). After Ellington ran the ball 18 times for just 23 yards last week, I’m skeptical of starting Anderson in St. Louis this weeken.
Tre Mason (Denver): The Broncos are the best team in the league at stopping the run, holding teams to just 67 rushing yards per game (1st in the NFL). The team has given up just three runs of over 20 yards and with Shaun Hill coming in at quarterback I expect few running lanes for Tre Mason this week.
