Running Back

T.J. Yeldon, @TB (56%, 11) – Is coming off his first 100-yard game and facing the 30th ranked run D in Tampa. I’m expecting another solid game from Yeldon.

Dion Lewis, @DAL (43%, 12) – I’m surprised to see Lewis being started in less than half of Yahoo leagues after three solid fantasy lines, especially against a Cowboys D giving up the 3rd most points to RBs.

Danny Woodhead, PIT (46%, 8) – The Steelers D has been solid against the run, but susceptible to backs catching passes out of the backfield which is Woodhead’s specialty. He’s getting slightly more snaps than Melvin Gordon and is the better option this week.

Todd Gurley, @GB (45%, 11) – Should be in your lineup every week from now on. Gurley showed glimpses of what he can do in the 2nd half last week and should be a fantasy beast the rest of the way.

Duke Johnson, @BAL (12%, 6) – PPR only. Last week Johnson got 10 targets in the passing game and if the Browns keep using him that way, he’s an every week starter.

Boobie Dixon, @TEN (1%, 4) – The odds are pretty good that both LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams will be out this week leaving the bulk of the carries for Dixon. He’s not flashy but a powerful inside runner who could put up useful stats with 15-20 carries.
