Darren McFadden, Raiders – Moving Up
Was McFadden's four-TD monster in Denver him finally living up to first-round expectations... or just him cramming all his productivity into a short run of healthy games in between injuries?

Ray Rice, Ravens – Moving Down
So... Willis McGahee is starting? Rice is okay with sharing carries? He's already ceding goal line looks and Baltimore isn't as run-centric as they've been in the past; in other words, Rice is trending the wrong way.

Knowshon Moreno, Broncos – Moving Up
Another back with tremendous potential and a penchant for injury, Moreno still has that favorable fantasy playoff stretch ahead of him—if he can stay healthy that long. His value also gets a bump from a pair of receiving TDs and the fact that neither of his backups even saw the field last week.

Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks – Moving Up
Lynch is running hard and looking good in doing so. He's also claimed the lead dog role in Seattle's RBBC and appears to be the favorite in the red zone as well. And the Seahawks' schedule against the run isn't particularly taxing the rest of the way, either.

Ryan Mathews, Chargers – Moving Down
The rookie is on pace to fall almost 100 touches shy of the 290 Norv Turner predicted for him in the preseason, and he didn't even see the field in the second half as the Chargers played catch-up. Oh, and Mike Tolbert is still swiping goal line looks.

LeGarrette Blount, Buccaneers – Moving Up
After a failed first attempt, Blount was significantly more effective when given another shot at first-team carries. Cadillac Williams is still involved, but the Bucs love what Blount brings to the table, and he'll see more touches.

Joseph Addai, Colts – Moving Down
News that Addai could miss another month with his shoulder injury sent fantasy owners scurrying for Donald Brown and Mike Hart, both of whom saw their rankings jump accordingly.

Reggie Bush, Saints – Moving Up
Bush probably won't be back this week—and against the Steelers it would be a tough fantasy start anyway—but he's been cleared to take part in practice and could be a factor as soon as Week 9. He may also see an increased workload if Pierre Thomas remains out and Chris Ivory remains inconsistent.
