Week 3: Runningbacks

LeVeon Bell is returning.  Lynch should go beastmode and Lacy’s health is in question.

Lynch and Seattle should win easy this week.  Bell’s return will only diversify the offense.  Jamaal Charles has had a week and a half to put those two fumbles behind him. The Chargers come in to Minnesota giving up 122.0 yards on the ground.  Peterson should have a breakout game. Forte is going to have to be involved a lot.  Especially in the passing game.

Forsett ran for an average of 69 yards in two games against Cincinnati last year while catching 8 passes.  He scored a TD in the opener last year.  Cincy is giving up 97 yards per game on the ground.  Forsett should be a solid start.  Oakland’s offense opened up last week.  Murray faces a league worst Browns rush defense (160.0 YPG).  Blount barely touched the field in his return.  I think he’ll get a lot more work in week 3 grinding the clock.  Both Redskins runningbacks will get work Thursday night.  Jones may be the more talented back.  But Morris is pretty steady.
