Fantasy Football Week 9: Start’em / Sit’em

6 of 8

Running Back 

Darren McFadden, PHI (62%, 14) – Should  get plenty of touches, but the Eagles have been stingy against the run this season and will most likely stack the box against an anemic Cowboys passing attack. I think DMC will struggle to crack double-digit fantasy points.

Melvin Gordon, CHI (44%, 10) – Hasn’t lived up to the hype so far. The 1st round pick has talent, but has struggled to hold on the ball and is losing snaps to Woodhead. The Bears run defense has been better than expected, giving up the 8th fewest fantasy points to RBs.

Rashad Jennings, @TB (32%, 8) – Has put up under 10 fantasy points in each of the last 5 games and is facing a defense ranked in the top 10 in fantasy points allowed to RBs. I would avoid the Ginats backfield all together if you can.

Alfred Morris, @NE (17%, 6) – Done. Morris hasn’t cracked 5 fantasy points in the last three games and looks washed up to me.

Isaiah Crowell, @CIN (15%, 6) – Hasn’t taken advantage of the lead RB role for the Browns and is losing carries to Robert Turbin and Duke Johnson.
