Peyton Hillis, Browns –
Any lingering doubters had to be convinced by Hillis' effort against the league's top run defense. Now the only question is, how do the Browns manage to screw this up before next year?
Knowshon Moreno, Broncos –
Even though Tim Tebow is stealing his goal line looks and his last three touchdowns have come via the pass, Moreno is getting enough looks—and facing such a favorable schedule—that so long as his hammy doesn't give out he's an every-week starter the rest of the way.
Shonn Greene, Jets –
Rex Ryan said he wanted a more equitable backfield split, and now Greene is getting 20 carries to LT's 15. You remember what his fresh legs did in the playoffs last season; maybe this year he's getting an earlier start.
Jahvid Best, Lions –
The touchdown drought stands at two months and counting. Maybe that toe injury is more of an issue than he's been letting on.
Fred Jackson, Bills –
First Lynch gets traded, now Spiller pulls a hammy... Jackson's line hasn't gotten any better, but at least now he's getting all the carries.
Ryan Torain, Redskins –
Torain broke from the peloton to take the yellow jersey, which may have been a big help in your fantasy Tour de France league but did you no good on Monday night. Meanwhile, Keiland Williams just stole his job.
Felix Jones, Cowboys –
Do you think at any point during Jason Garrett's interview Jerry Jones mentioned how much he'd enjoy seeing Jones play a bigger role in the offense?
Danny Woodhead, Patriots –
For all the throwing Tom Brady has been doing, surprisingly little of it is ending up with Woodhead. Then you've got BenJarvus Green-Ellis taking carries, Sammy Morris back in the mix, and Fred Taylor getting healthy.
Donald Brown, Colts –
Brown should be the guy taking advantage of Joseph Addai's injury; instead, first it was Mike Hart and now Javarris James. Eventually Addai is probably going to get healthy, but even if he doesn't it may not matter as Brown is contributing next to nothing fantasy-wise.
