Running Back 

Eddie Lacy, @CAR (73%, 10) – Finally found the end zone last week and put up a double-digit fantasy line for the first time in over a month. Lacy looked healthy last week and I think he’ll start getting closer to his usual amount of touches this week. Starks will still steal some of his carries, but I expect Lacy to get enough to surpass 10 fantasy points easy.

Danny Woodhead, CHI (59%, 9) – The Bears have struggled stopping RBs catching passes out of the backfield which happens to be Woodhead’s strength. I think he’ll have a solid fantasy line this week in PPR leagues.

Ronnie Hillman, @IND (47%, 10) – The Broncos time-share hurts the fantasy value of both Hillman and CJ Anderson, but the Colts have struggled to stop the run this year and both players should be worth starting this week.

Duke Johnson, @CIN (27%, 6) – The Browns coaches are saying all the right things about Johnson this week and he has a shot to put up a solid fantasy line if they follow through and actually give him more touches.  He’s by far the most dynamic back on the Browns roster and they need all the help they can get with Johnny Manziel at QB this week.

Antonio Andrews, @NO (20%, 10) – The Titans new coach is saying that Andrews is their work horse RB, which should lead to 15-20 touches and fantasy relevancy.

DeAngelo Williams, OAK (16%, 12) – Is taking over for Le’Veon Bell as the lead RB in a high-octane offense. Williams is an every week start moving forward.

Jeremy Langford, @SD (7%, 12) – The rookie gets a chance to show what he can do with Matt Forte injured. Langford flashed both power and break-away speed in the preseason and could have a huge fantasy game in the Bears run-heavy scheme.
