Charles racked up 120 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown against the Broncos last week. Washington allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to running backs this year.
The Bears would have trouble stopping just about any back who has ever played in the NFL at this point. Murray should be in for a huge game.
The Lions are tough against running backs, allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position, but McCoy is a strong play as always.
Bush had a monster Thanksgiving, totaling 182 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.
Gore disappointed with a great matchup, running for just 42 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries against the Rams. You're starting him no matter what, but the Seahawks allow the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Bell had a huge game against the Ravens before leaving late with a concussion. He's expected to play and will be a RB1 against a Miami defense that allows the eighth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Brown ran for just 35 yards on 14 carries last week, though he hit paydirt twice. Consider him an RB2 against the Chargers this week.
Rice has been successful with good matchups this season, and the Vikings present one for him. They've allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Tate had one carry for seven yards against Jacksonville in Week 12, but ran for 102 yards and three scores on 22 carries last week against the Patriots. I think he's a strong play against a defense that allows the ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Morris finally had a down game, running for 26 yards on 11 carries. It would figure that he would find the end zone in a game like that. You have to start him, even in this tough matchup.
If there were ever a time to predict a running back would run for 200 yards, it was Peterson going up against the Bears last week. He did just that, picking up 211 yards on 35 carries in the win.
Forte had 151 total yards last week and should keep it rolling against a Dallas team that allows the most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Jackson ran for 84 yards and two scores on 23 carries last week, giving him two straight productive games. The Packers allow the 11th-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Vereen is the only New England back I'd trust as a starter this week. He had 15 touches for 75 yards and a score a week ago.
Jones-Drew ran for 84 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting between these teams. Start him with confidence this week.
Lacy continues to struggle with Aaron Rodgers on the shelf. He had just 16 yards on 10 carries last week. This is a prime matchup, so hopefully he can get back on track.
The Colts have been surprisingly effective against running backs this year, but that shouldn't stop you from playing Bernard.
The Giants allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs this year, making Mathews a low-end RB2 this week.
Moreno ran for just 18 yards on 15 carries, but had four catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. Start him as usual this week.
Ball ran for 117 yards on 13 carries last week and could be a key player in the 2013 fantasy playoffs.
Jackson took a back seat to C.J. Spiller last week, and while that may be a theme for the rest of the season, he still has low-end RB2 value.
Andre Ellington is likely to return from a knee injury this week, but Mendenhall should get the lion's share of the touches. That's great news given that the Rams allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Ivory was back on top of the totem pole last week, running for 61 yards on 12 carries. This situation is still too muddy to trust him or Bilal Powell.
Green-Ellis racked up 92 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries last week. Consider him an RB3 this week.
Woodhead is hard to trust against a Giants defense that allows the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
All things considered, Miller's 72 yards on 22 carries against the Jets weren't that bad. They had surrendered just 2.9 yards per carry heading into the game.
Spiller's owners were rewarded for their patience last week as he ran for 149 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. He's a strong play this week, though the Bucs have allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Sproles caught seven of his eight targets for 32 yards last week. Consider him an RB3 this week.
Owners start Lynch every single week, but this is a tough matchup in San Francisco.
Rainey ran for 63 yards on 17 carries agianst the Panthers last week. The Bills have not been bad against the run, making Rainey a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 this week.
Blount will benefit if Stevan Ridley is inactive again, but the New England backfield is a total crapshoot.
Ellington is likely to make his return from a knee injury on Sunday. The matchup with the Rams is great, but he's a risky play given that we can't know how large a role he will have coming off an injury.
Johnson had 101 total yards on 24 touches last week. The Broncos allow the 12th-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
Jennings figures to dominate the touches out of the backfield again. He got just 35 yards last week, but scored two touchdowns. The Jets allow 2.9 yards per carry.
Ogbonnaya took a back seat to Willis McGahee last week, but he could be more of a factor if the Browns are forced to throw a bunch to try to keep up with New England.
Stewart didn't take advantage of the absence of DeAngelo Williams last week, but he could be a solid play this week if Williams sits again. The Saints allow 4.6 yards per carry.
Brown salvaged his day with a late four-yard TD plunge last week. He's a fringe option at best against the stout Cincinnati run defense.
Thomas got just four carries a week ago, totaling exactly zero yards. This matchup isn't much better, but the bet here is that the Saints won't be getting blown out. That would be good for Thomas' stock.
Rodgers got just five touches last week. He's not a fantasy option this week, or any.
Stacy was able to play last week despite suffering a concussion two weeks ago. The Cardinals allow the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, but I'm still starting him.
McFadden had five carries in his return a week ago. He is not an advisable play this week since he's just there to give Jennings a breather when needed.
Powell ceded the top spot back to Chris Ivory last week, but this situation is still too muddled to trust either of them.
Tolbert remains far more valuable to the Panthers than to fantasy owners.
Bell had a huge game last week, but don't count on him getting 19 carries again. That was dictated by game situation.
Bolden's role should remain the same this week, but the New England backfield is way too much of a crapshoot to trust anyone other than Shane Vereen.
Pierce had nine carries for 35 yards. This game will have to be a blowout for him to hold any fantasy value.
After creating some buzz with his performance against the Jags, Johnson got just three carries last week while Ben Tate had three touchdowns. Move along.
McGahee ran for 57 yards and a score on 14 carries last week. He's still no better than a low-end RB3.
Richardson has solidified Bust of the Year status. No one else comes close.
Ingram ran for 22 yards on eight carries last week. He cannot be deployed against a Carolina team that allows the third-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.
Ridley was a healthy scratch last week and should not be played in fantasy leagues even if he is active this week.
Williams missed last week's game because of a quad injury. He's expected to be available this week.
