Week 13 Ride ‘Em Or Hide ‘Em RBs
You don’t need me to tell you to start Arian Foster, Ray Rice, or Adrian Peterson…my mom could figure that out. Let’s look at some other matchups that could be favorable this week:
Juan’s Running The Rock With
Jamaal Charles vs Car
The Panthers run D was trashed by the speedy Brown last week and this week faces another back that they will be chasing all day. The Chiefs need to get him 20 touches this week and JC Superstar should have a monster game.
Trent Richardson @ Oak
Oakland’s D won’t be any tackling clinics this offseason and Richardson is one of the hardest guys to tackle in he NFL, so good luck Oak.
Bryce Brown @ Dal
Dallas is better against the pass than run and the Eagles want to keep the ball out of Foles hands. Brown is explosive and could be in line for another big game.
Mikel Leshoure vs Ind
Leshoure is not really that special, but he is getting the job done over the last 4 weeks. The Colts have allowed 100 yards rushing in 8 of 11 games, so there is a good bet Mikel gets to triple digits rushing.
Beanie Wells @ NYJ
Wells looked decent on his return running the ball, but did manage to get into the endzone 2 times last week. The Jets have struggled big time against opposing RBs, so Wells has a good chance to score double digit points this week.
Jonathan Dwyer @ Bal
The Ravens are still struggling against the run and Dwyer is looking ‘the guy’ in he Steelers backfield. I have a feeling he gets it going this week.
Mike Tolbert @ KC
D-Will has looked like crap this season and with J-Stew out, I like Tolbert to be the best fantasy option this week. Deep sleeper.
Marcel Reece vs Cle
Reece has been really good as the starter in Oak and will remain the lead back even with DMC returning. A sneaky start in PPR leagues.
DeAngelo Williams @ KC
As stated above, D-Will is no longer the guy who went nuts a few years back. He looks sluggish and no where near a guy I want in my lineup even in a favorable matchup.
Darren McFadden vs Cle
DMC will most likely be eased back into the lineup and Reece will remain the lead back for Oak. I want to see him perform before I feel good about putting him back in my lineup.
Ryan Mathews vs Cin
Mathews has been a major disappointment this season and the Bengals D has been very good as of late. He should be benched if you have to better options.
Knowshon Moreno vs TB
Knowshon did pretty good last week, but the Bucs have been pretty good against opposing RBs. The Broncos only have 1 rushing TD in their last 4 games and this game could be all Peyton.
