LeSean McCoy, EaglesMoving Up
Shady is the centerpiece of Chip Kelly's uptempo offense and looks like he'll have the opportunity to post career numbers.

Ray Rice, RavensMoving Down
Rice looked sluggish in the opener, then grabbed his hip in another down showing against the Browns in Week 2. With Bernard Pierce looming, Rice can't afford to look so ordinary.

Darren McFadden, RaidersMoving Up
Don't look know, but McFadden is healthy and pounding the ball in a read-option offense. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Ahmad Bradshaw, ColtsMoving Up
Bradshaw is hardly reliable; note the inclusion of the pedestrian Donald Brown to this list as a handcuff. But he'll get the touches in what the Colts want to be a run-heavy offense, so as long as he holds up he's golden.

Maurice Jones-Drew, JaguarsMoving Down
If you thought last year was a lost season for MJD, wait until you get a load of his 2013! Same shaky QB, same lowball contract, and now another injury.

Knowshon Moreno, BroncosMoving Up
A wise, wise man once set the RB value opportunity multiplier at 2, and Moreno is living proof. His blocking keeps him on the field, and Denver's offense is allowing him to outkick his coverage fantasy-wise.

Brandon Jacobs, GiantsMoving Up
It took multiple attempts and an official who apparently had him on his fantasy team, but Jacobs found the end zone for a shorty in his return to the League. He'll keep getting those shots, because the Giants simply don't have anybody else.

Andre Ellington, CardinalsMoving Up
He's already carved out a role in the passing game--which, for Bruce Arians, is the majority of the offense. And with only Rashard Mendenhall standing in front of him for even more touches, you have to like Ellington's chances.
