Arian Foster ($8500) Texans @ Jaguars – Fosters price still sits up near the top of all running back’s despite him only playing in two games this year. Its hard to pay top dollar for someone that hasn’t really gotten going this season and plays on a bad team. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 3rd worst in all of football in fantasy points allowed to the RB position and have also allowed the most receiving yards to running backs. Foster is as much of a threat receiving as he is running and is coming off a game where he caught 9 passes. He is also starting to look like his groin is fully healed and displayed some of that burst against the Colts. This is setting up to be the perfect match up for Foster to get himself on track and fill up the stat sheet. Foster feels like a lock and load play and should have his way with the Jaguars.

Eddie Lacy ($7300) Packers vs Chargers – Lacy has been a downright disaster the past few weeks. After opening the season with a 17 point performance against the sad Bears defense, Lacy has not impressed and has been one of the bigger flops in all of fantasyland in regards to season long leagues. His price tag continues to plummet which typically is a time to start taking notice. The Packers will host the Chargers, a team that I continue to pick on with running back’s week in and week out. The Chargers have allowed the 2nd most points to the running back position this season and Lacy has a really strong chance to add to that total in a home matchup. The Packers and Aaron Rodgers play much better at home and I expect them to roll in this one with Lacy being a big reason why.

LeGarrette Blount ($6500) Patriots @ Colts – Dion Lewis is a solid play in this one as well as he will most likely be involved in the passing attack. The Patriots might take the air out of the ball in the second half and pound the ground with Blount being used in his typical “closer” role. If you remember the “Deflategate” game last year, Blount ran for 148 yards and 3 touchdown’s mostly all in the second half. Like I stated above, I really think the Patriots are going to show no mercy and run up the score. Blount will have a hard time not getting a TD or two in this game.

Others I Like – Matt Forte ($8400), Dion Lewis ($7200), Charcandrick West ($6200)
