Ahmad Bradshaw, GiantsMoving Up
Bradshaw restaked his claim to the bulk of the Giants' workload with a stellar performance against the Browns. Doesn't hurt that Andre Brown can't pass block and David Wilson can't hold on to the football.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, BengalsMoving Down
On the bright side, BJGE didn't fumble this week and it looks like Bernard Scott won't threaten his workload after suffering a knee injury. So he's got that going for him, which is nice.

Rashard Mendenhall, SteelersMoving Up
After seeing Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson excel so quickly after knee surgery it shouldn't have come as a surprise that Mendenhall looked good in his first game back. But it did, as it took him just 10 carries to become the team's leading rusher for the season.

Cedric Benson, PackersMoving Down
Benson went down with an ankle injury, and Alex Green looked pretty good in his place. Even if, as Benson says, the injury isn't significant, Green has likely earned a few more touches.

Ben Tate, TexansMoving Down
He's nicked, and Gary Kubiak is just crazy enough to give Arian Foster 400 carries this season. That's going to come directly out of Tate's workload.

Jahvid Best, LionsMoving Up
Purely speculative, but the Lions are talking like Best could be activated by the end of the month. Of course he has to pass the concussion tests, but he's had a year to study.
