Running Back

Doug Martin, DAL (76%, 13) – It was just a matter of time until Martin found his way back on this list. Over the last two weeks his numbers have gone back down to his normal 3ish YPC. I’ve been saying all year that the Bucs will eventually give a longer look at Charles Sims and this could be the week.

Latavius Murray, MIN (71%, 12) – The Vikes give up a decent YPC average (4.4), but have been stingy in the red zone giving up the 6th fewest points to fantasy RBs. Murray’s possible concussion symptoms could lead to a quick hook if he gets shaken up as well.

C.J. Anderson, KC (50%, 10) – Still dealing with a carry split with Hillman and also facing a solid Chiefs run D that has given up the 8th fewest fantasy points to RBs. Their pass defense is much worse and I think the Broncos will rely more on Manning’s arm than the ground game this week.

Rashad Jennings, NE (28% 10) – I’m not sure why fantasy players keep starting Jennings when he hasn’t had double-digit fantasy points in any of his last five games. You are better off just avoiding the Giants backfield in general.

Chris Johnson, @SEA (27%, 9) – Has been a surprise fantasy asset this season, but is facing arguably the best run defense in the league this week. Johnson should get enough carries to put up a decent line, but doesn’t have much upside.

Ryan Matthews, MIA (21%, 8) – Has scored the last two weeks, but is only averaging eight carries per game over the last two so if he doesn’t score a TD he’s probably worthless for fantasy purposes. The Dolphins run D has struggled but I’m expecting Murray to get most of the touches.

Alfred Morris, NO (20%, 7) – Twenty percent of all Yahoo fantasy players is a huge number. Can there really be that many people who have either already given up on their teams or are dumb enough to keep starting Morris? He’s washed up and shouldn’t even be on 20% of fantasy rosters.
