LeSean McCoy, Eagles – Moving Up
The Eagles drafted McCoy to replace Brian Westbrook; it didn't take last year, but this season McCoy has been everything Philly hoped for. He may trend back down if Michael Vick starts stealing goal line carries, but right now he's looking to be every bit as valuable as Westy used to be.

Matt Forte, Bears – Moving Up
It's unlikely the Bears will run the ball as successfully the rest of the season as they did last week against the Panthers. But Chicago demonstrated that if Jay Cutler goes down again, the offense will run through Forte. Don't be surprised if Cutler's check-downs to the back increase as well as a way to keep him from absorbing another nine sacks.

DeAngelo Williams, Panthers – Moving Down
You'd think with nothing working offensively the Panthers would give Williams a bunch of carries in hopes of kick-starting the attack. However, it doesn't appear as if that's the way John Fox is going to play this.

Thomas Jones, Chiefs – Moving Down
It only took a month, but Todd Haley finally figured out which of his backs was the more effective one and started giving him the larger share of the workload. Now we'll see if Jones settles into a niche role, i.e. goal line guy.

Felix Jones, Cowboys – Moving Up
What Jerry Jones wants, Jerry Jones usually gets. And Jerry wants fellow Arkansas alum Felix to get the larger share of the workload. Now if Felix can find some way to avoid the injury bug that usually takes a bite out of his season, he'll live up to the preseason fantasy hype.

Brandon Jacobs, Giants – Moving Up
Jacobs is still the junior partner in the Giants' backfield committee, but he seems to be getting his touches at the stripe. And then there's Ahmad Bradshaw's injury history...

Chris "Beanie" Wells, Cardinals – Moving Down
Another week in the wrong direction for Wells. Now he's getting carries, but with Max Hall under center teams don't respect the passing game and are ready for Wells; Arizona's offensive line isn't good enough to block that sort of play just yet.
