Running Back

DeMarco Murray, NO (69%, 15) – Has had under 10 carries in two of his three games and until he starts getting closer to 15, I can’t justify starting him in leagues that I have a viable other option at RB.

C.J. Anderson, @OAK (63%, 12) – Is part of a time-share now with Ronnie Hillman, and has been the less productive of the two backs so far this season. I have a hunch that Gary Kubiak prefers Hillman, which could be disastrous for Anderson‘s fantasy value. I hope he bounces back this week, but until he does he’s riding the pine in the few leagues I have him.

Chris Johnson, @DET (42%, 9) – The Cards RB situation was murky enough with just the two Johnsons, but now with Andre Ellington back in the mix… I’m staying away from all three.

Rashad Jennings, SF (26%, 10) – Don’t let last week’s useful fantasy line fool you into playing Jennings this week, he’s part of a three man platoon and got less carries than Andre Williams again last week.
