Running Back

Latavius Murray, GB (67%, 13) – Has struggled lately and is averaging less than 50 rushing yards per game over his last five. It could be a matter of Murray wearing down or more to do with the recent struggles of the Raiders offense, but either way I don’t trust him this week.

Darren McFadden, NYJ (59%, 11) – The Cowboys offense is just really bad with Cassell at QB. Defenses can load the box on McFadden and he’s not explosive enough to do anything about it. The Jets have a fierce front four and I could see them holding DMC to under 50 yards this week.

DeMarco Murray, AZ (52%, 10) – With his playing time not a sure thing, it’s way to risky to start Murray in a playoff match-up.

Charcandrick West, @BAL (51%, 15) – If Spencer Ware is ruled out than maybe West has a shot at 15 fantasy points, but it still seems high to me against one of the best run defenses in football. If Ware is active, West is on my bench for sure.

C.J. Anderson, @PIT (44%, 10) – He’s banged up and even if he plays will be splitting carries with Ronnie Hillman. Anderson has been too inconsistent for me to use in the fantasy playoffs. The way my seasons have been going, he’ll probably have a huge game on my bench, but I’m going with a safer option anyway.

Jeremy Langford, @MIN (22%, 11) – The rookie has been impressive, but he’s in a time-share with Matt Forte and they are both facing a very stout Vikings defense this week. I don’t feel great about either of them reaching double-digit fantasy points. It depends who gets the red-zone carries and last week it was Forte.
