Darren McFadden, RaidersMoving Up
Signs of life in his 98 yards from scrimmage and touchdown against the Falcons--30 touches, for starters, including 27 carries. Looks like the bye week helped Oakland remember where their offensive bread is buttered.

DeMarco Murray, CowboysMoving Down
No official word yet, and initial x-rays were negative, but too many times "foot sprain" means a date with that fickle beeyatch Liz Frank--and that's extremely bad news for a running back. If Liz takes up with DeMarco, give Felix Jones a goose upwards in the rankings.

Rashard Mendenhall, SteelersMoving Down
Maybe we were a tad hasty moving Mendy back up the charts; Thursday in Tennessee he looked less than stellar before exiting with an injury. Isaac Redman's third-down work suggest this could be back to a committee soon.

Daryl Richardson, RamsMoving Up
The breakdown of touches indicate Richardson is moving into a job share with Steven Jackson--and he's more productive as well.

Shonn Greene, JetsMoving Up
If the over/under on Greene TDs the rest of the way is set at three--the same number he fell into in Week 6--there would be a whole lot of play on the under. That said, his big game bought him a few more weeks of 2.9 yards per carry.

Brandon Bolden, PatriotsMoving Down
Hard to say if it was the knee injury or Bill Belichick's decision, but one way or another Bolden was back to junior partner duty and Stevan Ridley was getting the bulk of the workload.

Montario Hardesty, BrownsMoving Up
Trent Richardson left Cleveland's win over the Bengals with an injury, making Hardesty a speculative pickup. He's not particularly good, but he may be the only show in town.
