Jamaal Charles, Chiefs –
Though Todd Haley continues to give Thomas Jones carries, Charles continues to shine with whatever workload he's handed. An incredibly favorable schedule has KC facing five straight bottom-feeding run defenses heading into the fantasy postseason, so enjoy the ride.
LeGarrette Blount, Buccaneers –
Blount Part Deaux was a tremendous success—and that playoff finish against Detroit and Seattle sure looks nice on his schedule.
Ryan Torain, Redskins –
Torain made the mistake of getting hurt, opening the door for another Mike Shanahan find. On the bright side, the next month of matchups make any Redskins back a risky start anyway.
Michael Bush, Raiders –
It's still the Darren McFadden show, but Bush remains in the picture as a junior partner in the committee. Now if the McFadden/Bush ticket can get Marcel Reese to stop stealing touches...
Felix Jones, Cowboys –
It was all set up for Jones to shine: at home, with a backup quarterback, against a soft run defense. And Jones dribbled it right down his leg. Can it be long before Tashard Choice is getting the meaningful touches?
Carnell Williams, Buccaneers –
Looks like Williams might not even be clinging to third-down duty; as JUMbo pointed out, Blount was on the field for most of those snaps as well.
Darren Sproles, Chargers –
Sproles continues to horn in on the Mathews/Tolbert tandem, as he's the most effective back in the passing game the Chargers are relying on so heavily. In larger PPR leagues, Sproles might just be approaching every-week starter status.
Jonathan Stewart, Panthers –
Laying an egg with DeAngelo Williams on the bench is one thing; blaming your offensive line for your failures is another. A good carpenter doesn't blame his tools. At this point, once Williams returns Stewart is droppable.
