6 of 8

Running Back

Eddie Lacy, @AZ (73%, 10) – In his last four games he has 20 points in two of them but two or less in the other two. He’s a huge gamble to play during your playoffs as I learned the hard way two weeks ago. Start Lacy at your own risk, but I wouldn’t.

Frank Gore, @MIA (68%, 12) – Has a good match-up, but has less than eight points in four of his last five starts. Gore is banged up and has 60 yards or less in each of his last five starts.

DeMarco Murray, @WAS (49% 9) – With the uncertainty over the carry distribution in Philly, it’s way too risky to start Murray in the playoffs. It’s been five weeks since Murray has had a useful fantasy game.

CJ Anderson, CIN (40%, 8) – Is questionable to play anyway, but even if he does, Anderson has had only one good game in the last seven weeks. If you are still alive in the fantasy playoffs you can’t risk getting a sub five pointer again from Anderson this week.

Jeremy Langford, @TB (24%, 11) – Has plenty of talent and the ability to put up a big fantasy line, but will most likely be splitting carries with Matt Forte again, limiting both of their fantasy values.
