Running Back

Darren McFadden (14%) – With the explosive Christine Michael expected to take over as the Cowboys RB1 last week, no one was talking about DMC but he had his best game since his time with the Raiders (152 yards, 1 TD). Dallas still has a great O-line and DMC should see plenty of carries the rest of the way, until he gets hurt at least.

Alfred Blue (18%) – The loss of Arian Foster for the season makes Blue relevant in fantasy again. Besides one big game, Blue didn’t do much when given a chance and will most likely be splitting touches with Polk and Grimes.

Duke Johnson (48%) – Is stuck in a RBBC with the Browns but has proven to be their best receiver out of the backfield. With the Browns usually trailing in the 2nd half, Johnson should continue to get 6-8 targets per week making him worth owning in PPR leagues as a poor man’s Danny Woodhead.

Charles Sims (33%) – Doug Martin’s unlikely resurgence continued for another week, but Sims is still getting plenty of snaps. He’s had over 10 carries in consecutive games and even got a red zone touch last week (he was stuffed). Eventually Martin is going to turn back into a pumpkin and Sims will take over. It might be a few weeks before it happens, but he is worth stashing.

Antonio Andrews (15%) – The Titans haven’t been able to establish a running game all season, but Andrews got double-digit carries last week for the 2nd time this season and has been the primary goal-line back.
