Ray Rice, RavensMoving Down
Baltimore's offense looked so horrible Monday night Rice had to take a hit. Him putting the ball on the ground didn't help.

Darren McFadden, RaidersMoving Down
There's that old injury bugaboo again. The Raiders are saying everything is okay, but when I hear "mid-foot sprain" I hear "Lisfranc" and begin to panic.

Chris Johnson, Titans Moving Down
Looked worse than utterly ordinary against a Texans team he traditionally torches. He's forfeited the "elite back" card; lucky for him he has a favorable matchup with the Colts this week to help stop the bleeding.

Ryan Torain, RedskinsMoving Up
With Tim Hightower down for the year Torain will be Mike Shanahan's feature back, until his next injury or Shanny's next whim. O/U set at 3.5 weeks.

DeMarco Murray, CowboysMoving Up
Capitalized on an opportunity and a great matchup. May wind up sharing carries, but has demonstrated he's the most electric back the 'Boys have.

Chris Wells, CardinalsMoving Down
Just when even cynics like me were hopping on board the bandwagon, Wells blows another tire. He's not exactly the fastest healer, so Alfonso Smith must be rostered by Wells owners.

Willis McGahee, BroncosMoving Down
Knowshon Moreno, BroncosMoving Up
McGahee's busted hand opens the door for Moreno once again. He's as likely to slam it on his toe as he is to bust through it, but hey it's an opportunity.

Pierre Thomas, SaintsMoving Up
Mark Ingram's bruised heel should give Thomas a few extra carries for the next couple of weeks, then it's back to third wheel in the committee. Take advantage while you can.

Peyton Hillis, BrownsMoving Down
Not that Montario Hardesty looked all that great, but the Browns are likely to use a committee approach to their backfield. A, they're not a good enough offense to warrant starting a committee member and B, Hillis is the kind of back that needs volume touches to be a fantasy factor.
