Running Back

Christine Michael, DAL (42%) – The uber-athletic Michael is finally going to get a chance to be a lead back this week for the Cowboys. Dallas is unhappy with the production from Joseph Randle and Michael could be an impact fantasy player the rest of the year running behind an elite O-line. Michael should be your top waiver add this week.

James Starks, GB (21%) – What’s going on with Eddie Lacy? Starks has been getting more touches the last two weeks and looked very good. It sounds like the Packers are going to ride the hot hand which could mean more big games in the future for Starks.

Theo Riddick, DET (21%) – Two of the Lions RBs are injured (Bell, Zenner) and a third has a fumbling problem (Abdullah). That leaves Riddick as possibly the main back for the Lions this week and he has been productive in the past when given a chance.

Charles Sims, TB (25%) – Doug Martin has been relevant in fantasy again over the last two weeks, but I’m not buying it. Sims has been a big part of the offense despite Martin’s resurgence and could take over a bigger share of the offensive snaps if/when Martin struggles.

Knile Davis, KC (44%) – The first week post-Charles was a disappointment for both of his replacements. It’s too early to give up on either back though and I would still try and stash Davis if he’s available in your league.
