The Bears allowed 258 rushing yards to the Rams last week. Peterson could legitimately reach that total by himself on Sunday.
Charles carved up the Chargers as expected and is one of the top options at the position, as always, this week. It'll be interesting to see if the Chiefs have any new offensive wrinkles in thier second matchup in three weeks against the Broncos.
Gore should be in for a huge day against a St. Louis defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Murray played well in a tough matchup last week, running for 86 yards on 14 carries. Start him with confidence on Thanksgiving.
Brown ran for 127 yards against the Cowboys last week and is a strong RB2 against a Washington defense that allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Forte had 117 total yards against the Rams last week and is as strong a play as there is for Week 13 against a Minnesota defense allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Lynch could be in line for a big game against a Saints defense that allows 4.8 yards per carry.
Morris is having an absolutely fantastic season amidst all the drama in Washington. He's a RB1 every single week.
Jennings will start for the third consecutive game this week. He's a great play against a Dallas defense allowing the most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Bush totaled 102 yards from scrimmage last week, and is a strong play, as always, this week.
Bernard should be started this week, despite the Chargers being better than average against running backs this year.
I love Brown this week in an extremely favorable matchup. The Titans allow the fifth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Bell racked up 98 yards from scrimmage last week, but the Ravens have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Jackson had his best game as a Falcon last week, running for 63 yards and a touchdown. He's a low-end RB2 against a Buffalo defense allowing the second-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
McCoy is a must-start in all formats, but know that the Cardinals have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Stacy may miss this week's game with a head injury. We'll update his status later in the week.
The Bengals allow the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, making Mathews a low-end RB2 this week.
Johnson picked up 74 yards on 13 carries in relief of Ben Tate last week. He's hard to start this week, but could be a guy who swings fantasy titles if he gets a shot to be the feature back.
Stop me if you've heard this before, but Ellington outgained Rashard Mendenhall in fewer carries last week. He's a solid RB3.
Moreno had 79 yards on 27 carries in the Broncos' first game against the Chiefs. The matchup is tough, but he remains an RB1 if he's healthy enough to start.
Miller could get an uptick in touches with Daniel Thomas injured, but the Jets allow the second-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Rice predictably struggled against the Jets, though his prospects are much improved against a Pittsburgh team allowing the 10th-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Jones-Drew ran well against a tough Houston run defense, picking up 84 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. He's a solid RB2 this week.
Thanks to his prowess as a pass catcher, Vereen is the only running back on the Patriots you can trust for fantasy purposes. I have him as a low-end RB2 this week.
Bolden could benefit greatly from the recurring fumbling issues of Stevan Ridley and LeGarrette Blount. Since this is New England, though, we can never be sure.
Jackson should be considered a low-end RB2 against an Atlanta defense that allows the ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
It's too big a stretch to consider Williams anything more than a low-end RB3 so long as he's in a 50/50 timeshare with Jonathan Stewart.
Lacy had a huge game against Minnesota's terrible run defense last week, but his task is much tougher on Thanksgiving. The Lions allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Consider Spiller a low-end RB2 against an Atlanta defense that allows the ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Johnson totaled 81 yards from scrimmage against the Raiders last week. He burned the Colts for 86 yards and two touchdowns two weeks ago, though nearly all that damage was done in the first quarter.
Ogbonnaya failed to deliver on the bit of sleeper hype he generated last week. He remains a guy worth rostering, but you cant possibly start him on Sunday.
Ivory ran for just 35 yards last week and got two fewer carries than Bilal Powell. Ivory's injured ankle could mean even more carries for Powell this week. It's shaping up as a situation to avoid
Woodhead is an RB3/4 against a Cincinnati defense allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Green-Ellis is a low-end RB3 against a San Diego defense that has been better than average against running backs this year.
Powell had 11 carries to Chris Ivory's nine last week, and there's simply no telling who will lead the backfield from week to week.
Rainey had 35 yards on 18 carries last week; his task gets no easier in Carolina. He's a weak RB3 option.
Rodgers remains in a bit part in a struggling offense. That's a bad combo for fantasy owners.
Stewart got just seven carries a week ago. Until his workload increases, he can't be considered a solid fantasy starter.
Mendenhall retains a large enough role in the Arizona offense to warrant consideration as an RB3 this week.
If you own him, you're starting him. He's been the Saints most consistent back all season.
Bell should be stashed on your bench now that bye weeks are behind us.
Ball succumbed to the fumbling beast last week, and that could nip his fantasy value in the bud once again.
Sproles looks like he'll be able to return after missing last week's game with Atlanta.
Tolbert's role in the Carolina offense isn't large enough to consider him a starter in fantasy leagues.
Richardson had seven carries for 15 yards last week. He should be glued to your bench. Donald Brown is the back to own here.
Tate got benched for Dennis Johnson last week, and though Gary Kubiak insists he'll remain the starter, he is no more than a RB3 because of the uncertainty.
Ridley fumbled early in the game against Denver last week and never saw the field again. There's no telling if Bill Belichick will trust him this week, and that makes him a risk.
Pierce got 11 carries a week ago, his largest workload since Week 5, but turned them into just 30 yards. There is no reason to start him this week.
Leonard got just one carry for three yards last week. After a brief chance at fantasy relevance, he should be completely off your radar.
Ingram's fantasy value is nil, even in a good matchup. This happens to be a terrible one.
McGahee got just four carries a week ago and has fallen completely off the fantasy radar.
