Running Back

Jonathan Stewart,@TEN (69%, 10) – The Titans have been a top three D against fantasy RBs this year, but it’s a somewhat misleading stat. They are just in the middle of the pack in rushing yards allowed and half the teams they’ve played this year have bottom 10 rush offenses. The Panthers lead the NFL is rushing yards per game and Stewart should be able to rack up double-digit fantasy points if he plays (questionable) this week.

LeGarrette Blont, @NYG (64%, 11) – The loss of Dion Lewis could lead to more touches for Blount. He had a season high 29 carries last week when Lewis got hurt.

Jeremy Langford, @STL (57% 10) – Tough match-up for the rookie, but he proved he can handle the lead RB role for the Bears while Forte is out and I think he’ll see enough touches to be worth a spot in your starting lineup. If Forte plays, then obviously this pick is void.

T.J. Yeldon, @BAL (50%, 10) – The clear-cut RB1 for the Jags and has put up double-digit fantasy points in four straight games. The match-up isn’t great, but Yeldon should get enough touches to put up a solid fantasy line.

Antonio Andrews, CAR (33%, 9) – The new Titans coaching staff leaned on Andrews last week with a season-high 19 carries and he produced with over 100 total yards on the day. I think they will go back to Andrews again this week and he’s got a good shot at beating his projected point total.

Duke Johnson Jr, @PIT (25%, 7) – He’s on this list every week for PPR leagues and he’s consistently out-produced his projected total. Eventually the Browns will realize that Johnson is their best RB and give him more touches. Make sure he’s in your lineup when that happens.

Matt Jones, NO (11%, 10) – This could be the week that the Skins give up on Alf Morris and give Jones 20+ touches. He won’t need that many to put up a good fantasy line against the Saints porous defense.

James White, @NYG (1%, 5) – I try to avoid relying on Belichick in fantasy, but the injury to Dion Lewis potentially leaves White as the Pats receiving back. They have been throwing to throwing to Lewis often this year and if White gets those same looks, he could be a beast. I’d hold on starting White in non-PPR formats until we see how he’s used, but I’d roll the dice in .5 or more PPR formats.
