Running Back

Jeremy Hill, @DEN (70%, 8) -With a back-up starting at QB, potential bad weather in Denver, and facing one of the best pass defenses in the league, the Bengals are going to be leaning on Hill a lot this week.

Charcandrick West, CLE (64%, 11) – Managed to hit what I thought was a lofty 15 point projections last week and is facing a bad Browns run defense this week. The Chiefs will continue to spread the ball around, but West should see more than enough touches to put up double-digit fantasy points.

Tim Hightower, JAX (53%, 9) – Has ran with authority between the tackles the last two weeks and has shown more burst on the outside than expected as well. The Saints are using Hightower as their primary back and if he gets 15-20 touches he could have a big game against a mediocre Jags run D.

Ameer Abdullah, SF (29%, 7) – If this guy could hold on to the ball he may be averaging close to 10o total yards per game, but fumbles continue to plague Abdullah and keep him on the bench for long stretches. He has over 60 yards rushing in three of the last four games and if he can hold on to the ball, he could have a huge game against one of the worst rush Ds in football.

Antonio Andrews, HOU (12%, 8) – With Marcus Mariota out for the rest of the year, the Titans may look to estabilsh their running game more than usual by feeding the ball to Andrews early and often. He’s not the most explosive RB in the league, but has good power and if he can get some red zone snaps Andrews could put up some significant fantasy stats this week. I think he’s a solid Flex start.
