Matt Forte, ChicagoMoving Up
Maybe the Bears' banged up offensive line will actually be a benefit for Forte; he's churning out receiving yards on a pace that's ahead of Vincent Jackson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Andre Johnson..

Fred Jackson, BillsMoving Up
Jackson's a workhorse, and with Ryan Fitzpatrick occupying defenses via the air he's finding plenty of room to run between the tackles.

Chris Wells, CardinalsMoving Up
Beanie has already matched last season's touchdown total and is blowing his career yards-per-carry mark out of the water. Enjoy the run for at least another week; after that the schedule gets markedly more difficult.

Shonn Greene, JetsMoving Down
The loss of Nick Mangold for any length of time won't help Gang Green jump start their running game. And the longer Mark Sanchez thinks he's a downfield passer, the bigger hit Greene's fantsay value takes..

Willis McGahee, BroncosMoving Up
McGahee's goal-line/third down/change of pace role just got an upgrade.

James Starks, PackersMoving Up
Ryan Grant looks sluggish, and Starks has demonstrated enough that the Packers can live with his passing game learning curve. His only drawback is that John Kuhn continues to steal goal line looks.

Arian Foster, TexansMoving Down
Twang goes the hammy and we're back to a two-headed backfield monster in Houston. And the way Ben Tate is running, Foster may find himself with plenty of time to play "What the heck happened to my career?" with fellow deposed Texans feature back Steve Slaton. 

Ben Tate, TexansMoving Up
See above.

Felix Jones, CowboysMoving Down
Played through a separated shoulder last week, but he wasn't very effective. Value takes a hit until he proves healthy and/or able to play better with the bum wing. On the bright side, neither Tashard Choice nor DeMarco Murray looked ready, willing, and/or able to step up and claim the spot. 

DeAngelo Williams, PanthersMoving Down
If you're only going to give him 11 touches a game, why give him the big contract? Worse, Jonathan Stewart's 8-100 receiving suggests Williams isn't even cornering that market of the backfield work. Cam Newton giveth, and here he taketh away. 

Daniel Thomas, DolphinsMoving Up
After sitting out Week 1 Thomas made his NFL debut with a splash. Now we'll see how firm Tony Sparano is with that whole 20 touches thing for Reggie Bush.

Dexter McCluster, ChiefsMoving Up
What, the Chiefs are going to give more carries to Thomas Jones instead of their explosive, dynamic, play-making scatback? Oh, wiat, we've heard this before.

Knowshon Moreno, BroncosMoving Down
Who had Week 2 in the "When will No Show lose his starting gig?" pool?
