Running Back

DeAngelo Williams, PIT (25%) – With Le’Veon Bell out for the season, Williams is the new starting RB for the Steelers and is a must start for fantasy purposes. Use as much of your FAAB budget as it takes to add Williams.

Jeremy Langford, CHI (9%) – Matt Forte is rumored to be out for at least two weeks, which moves Langford into the starting role on a run-heavy Bears squad. Langford has shown flashes of both power and speed so far this season and could put up starter caliber fantasy numbers for the next few weeks.

Duke Johnson, CLE (52%) –  Had been averaging 6-7 targets per game before last week’s 2 catches, but Duke did take one of those for 52 yards. The Browns coaching staff has vowed to get the explosive Johnson the ball more often and he could be a quality RB2/Flex in PPR leagues during the 2nd half of the season.

Matt Jones, WAS (32%) – Alfred Morris hasn’t had a useful fantasy line in almost two months and it’s just a matter of time until Jones starts getting the bulk of the carries. Grab him now while you still can.

Charles Sims, TB (33%) – Doug Martin is the main guy in Tampa, but Sims is getting 10+ touches per week and that number should increase as the season goes on and the Bucs want to get a better look at Sims.

Antonio Andrews, TEN (33%) – His carries have increased in each of the last three games and Andrews is getting the goal-line work the rare times the Titans get there.
