Week 5: Top 24 Runningbacks

A bunch of backs are coming off bye weeks.  Matt Asiata looked great and rookie teammate Jerick McKinnon did too.  They hit the road on a short week with a banged up rookie QB.  I don’t expect a repeat of week 4.

1.   LeVeon Bell @ Jacksonville

2.   Marshawn Lynch vs Washington

3.   Matt Forte @ Carolina

4.   Rashad Jennings vs Atlanta

5.   DeMarco Murray vs Houston

6.   Andre Ellington @ Denver

7.   Reggie Bush vs Buffalo

8.   Jamaal Charles @ San Francisco

9. Giovanni Bernard @ New England

10. Zac Stacy @ Philadelphia

11. Lesean McCoy vs St. Louis

12. Justin Forsett @ Indianapolis

13. CJ Spiller @ Detroit

14 Chris Ivory @ San Diego

15. Montee Ball vs Arizona

16. Fred Jackson @ Detroit

17. Frank Gore vs Kansas City

18. Chris Johnson @ San Diego

19. Khiry Robinson vs Tampa bay

20. Doug Martin @ New Orleans

21. Isaiah Crowell @ Tennessee

22. Stevan Ridley vs Cincinnati

23. Jeremy Hill @ New England

24. Trent Richardson vs Baltimore

Thursday games

9. Lacy

24. Asiata

I don’t like Donald Brown this week. Jeremy Hill and Blount could be nice flex plays this week.  I’m not very high on Minnesota this Thursday.  Arian Foster is a real wild card.  The hamstring seems like it’s going to linger.  If Blue is the Starter, I would put him in the lower end of this list.  I like Crowell to be the guy who comes out on top of the rotation this week.
