What Running Backs Are Good For Your Lineup Week 14
Perhaps you have made it to the coveted second round of your fantasy playoffs? Continue your playoff run, and take it to the next level by making all of the right calls!
Darren McFadden is scheduled to make his return to the Raider's starting line-up. Back up tailback, Michael Goodson should be back, also. What does this mean? There will be very few touches for Marcel Reece who was doing a great job bearing the load in Oakland.
Next, be sure to get C.J. Spiller in your lineup, if you have him. This Bill's running back has been seeing fewer carries because of the presence of a healthy Fred Jackson. However, like the new hybrid-style running back, Jamaal Charles, he knows exactly how to get large chunks of yards per carry. Also. With Bill's receiverStevie Johnson out with a strained hamstring, look for the Bill's to try to use Spiller in the screen game.
A surprising start on our list is Ahmad Bradshaw. The fiesty Giant's running back has only had a few breakout moments this season. However, after coming off a heartbreaking Monday night loss vs. the Redskins, Bradshaw will have a chance to gash the run-friendly N.O. Saints this week!
Who should you think twice before starting?
Although Dolphin's running back, Reggie Bush has had what some would call a fantastic year, he is facing a very stout San Francisco defense. This is one of the top run-defending defenses, and they are coming off a shocking overtime upset vs. St. Louis. Look for the 49'ers to load the box on Bush.
New England sensation, Stevan Ridley has had an outstanding season. We know the Texans are looking to make a statement game against the powerful New England offnese. J.J. Watt, and Brooks Reid are talented enough to contain the explosive Ridley from making long runs.
Abandon all hope you had leading up to the season that Ryan Matthews would have an amazing season. He has fallen far short of expectations this year. The Charger's are now relying on Philip River's arm to get them through the game.
