Fantasy Football Running Back Quick Picks for Week 6

Justin Forsett/Marshawn Lynch (Seattle Seahawks vs. Chicago Bears): I would rank both of these RB2s for now. Whether one will help the other or become the primary back, it is best to wait and see.

Matt Forte (Chicago vs. Seattle): Even though he should be easily considered a RB1 in this situation, he has been too erratic as a fantasy football running back. He is realistically a RB3 or flex. High-risk gamble, high-risk reward should be his motto this season so far.

Ronnie Brown/Ricky Williams (Miami Dolphins vs. Green Bay Packers): The running game has been surprisingly anemic this season for the Miami Dolphins. They should be RB3s at this point.

Brandon Jackson/John Kuhn (Green Bay vs. Miami): Same here. They should be considered RB3s, not enough carries and touchdowns to be starters.

Ryan Mathews/Mike Tolbert (San Diego Chargers vs. St. Louis Rams): Ryan Mathews may have a tougher time than he thinks. Ryan is  a solid RB2 in my opinion.

Steven Jackson (St. Louis vs. San Diego): Tough sledding. Low-end RB1 at best, but realistically, a high-end RB2.

Javhid Best (Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants): Low-end RB1/high-end RB2. He’s getting better and far more productive than some of the other backs out there despite his turf toe.

Ahmad Bradshaw/Brandon Jacobs  (New York vs. Detroit): Both should be conisdered high-end RB2s, but Bradshaw can be considered a low-end RB1.

Chris Ivory/Ladell Betts/Etc. (New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers): This one is like picking the lottery, but both of them are playing injured. Low-end RB2s.

Cadillac Williams (Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans): He’s still on the waiver wire, right?

Ray Rice (Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots): Why are you asking? RB1, unless the Earth implodes.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis/Fred Taylor (New England vs. Baltimore): Solid RB2s so far,  in my opinion.

Michael Bush/Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders vs. San Francisco 49ers):  Both warrant a low-end RB1 status.

Frank Gore (San Francisco vs. Oakland):  RB1 in this matchup. He’s one of the few consistent players in this offense.

Peyton Hillis/Mike Bell (Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers):  Low-end RB2s at best.

Rashard Mendenhall (Pittsburgh vs. Cleveland):  Low-end RB1/solid RB2.

Arian Foster (Houston Texans vs. Kansas City Chiefs):  With this inconsistency, he should be a high-end RB2 at best.

Jamaal Charles  (Kansas City vs. Houston): RB2. Potential to be a low-end RB1.

LaDanian Tomlinson (New York Jets vs. Denver Broncos):  Always start him, even against this defense.

Keyshawn Moreno (Denver vs. New York): RB3 or flex…heck, just leave him on the wire since Kyle Orton is on the helm.

Felix Jones/Marion Barber (Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings):  Both solid RB2s.

Adrian Peterson (Minnesota vs. Dallas):  A must-start, after the Brett Favre tendonitis and Jenn Sterger debacles. AP should hope that Brett Favre is limited. It would give him more touches.

Joseph Addai/Mike Hart (Indianapolis Colts vs. Washington Redskins): Low-end RB2s/high-end RB3s.

Clinton Portis/Ryan Torain (Washington vs. Indianapolis): Solid RB2s.

Chris Johnson (Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars): Must-start.

Maurice Jones-Drew (Jacksonville vs. Tennessee): Solid RB2.
