Fantasy Football Running Back Quick Picks for NFL Week 14

The Must-Starts are, as follows, but the last two require some caveats attached:

  • Arian Foster of the Houston Texans
  • Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns
  • Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings
  • Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens
  • Rashard Mendenhall of the Pittsburgh Steelers. With injuries to the offensive line, he’s been in decline and falling into RB2 status, with lesser amount of touches.
  • Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans. With the Titans offense in flux, he is the only safe and relatively dependable start, but his value has been decreasing and falling into RB2 status, with lesser amount of touches and yardage gained.

Now to the rest of this week’s schedule:

Donald Brown/Mike Hart (Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans): RB3 or flex, at best, even against this inconsistent defense.

Matt Forte (Chicago vs. New England): Low-end RB2.

Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders vs. Jacksonville Jaguars): Solid RB2.

Maurice Jones-Drew (Jacksonville vs. Oakland): Solid RB1.

LeGarrette Blount (Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Washington Redskins): High-end RB2.

Keiland Williams/James Davis (Washington vs. Tampa Bay): High-end RB2.

Michael Turner (Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers): High-end RB1.

Jonathan Stewart (Carolina vs. Atlanta): High-end RB2.

Darren McFadden (Oakland Raiders vs. Jacksonville Jaguars): High-end RB2, but the Raiders offense and defense has been unpredictable.

Maurice Jones-Drew (Jacksonville vs. Oakland): Solid RB1.

Marshawn Lynch (Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers): Solid RB2, based on last week’s performance, but I would still hold my breath.

Brian Westbrook (San Francisco vs. Seattle): Solid RB2.

Steven Jackson (St. Louis Rams vs. New Orleans Saints): Solid RB2.

Chris Ivory (New Orleans vs. St. Louis): Low-end RB1.

Ronnie Brown/Ricky Williams (Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets): RB3s.

LaDanian Tomlinson (New York vs. Miami): Low-end RB2.

Knoshown Moreno (Denver Broncos vs. Arizona Cardinals): Solid RB1, the only consistent part of this offense ironically enough.

Tim Hightower (Arizona vs. Denver): High-end RB2.

Jamaal Charles (Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Diego Chargers): RB2.

Mike Tolbert (San Diego vs. Kansas City): RB2.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (New England Patriots vs. Chicago Bears): High-end RB2.

Matt Forte (Chicago vs. New England): High-end RB2.

LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys): Low-end RB1.

Tashard Choice/ Felix Jones (Dallas vs. Philadelphia): ¬†Solid RB2s, if the Cowboys decide to focus on the running game to keep the game out of the Jon Kitna’s hands.
