Running Back

David Johnson, @PHI (72%, 13) – Has looked good as the Cards starter the last two weeks. Johnson is the only decent Cards RB healthy right now, and he’s a dangerous receiver out of the backfield. I think he’s a lock for 15 fantasy points this week.

Jeremy Hill, @SF (67%, 10) – I got burned on Hill last week, but with A.J. McCarron at QB and the Bengals facing one of the worst run Ds in football… It’s a safe bet that they lean heavily on Hill this week.

Javoris Allen, KC (44%, 10) – Struggled against the Seahawks D last week, but is still the Ravens lead back and should have a little easier sledding against the Chiefs. Allen has proven to be a solid option out of the backfield as well which makes him a must start at least in PPR leagues.

Tim Hightower, DET (42%, 10) – Got almost all of the carries last week with Mark Ingram out and should see the majority again against the Lions. He’s not flashy, but Hightower runs hard and should see all the red zone work in what could be a high-scoring game.

Brandon Bolden, TEN (18%, 11) – With Blount and Lewis officially out for the year, it’s either Bolden or the inexperienced James White as the Pats lead back. Common sense says it will be Bolden, but beware of trusting Belichick in the fantasy playoffs. If I see Jonas Gray on the sidelines, I’m pulling Bolden immediately.

Bryce Brown, CLE (18%, 7) – I am still a fan of Brown’s for that two game stretch with the Eagles in 2012 when he carried my fantasy squad with 4 TDs, but he really hasn’t done much of anything since. Brown will get a chance this week as the Seahawks primary RB against a bad Browns run D.
