Giovani Bernard looks to regain traction

Hallelujah, finally a week without a RB1 succumbing to injury, but many questions still remain on the running back landscape: Is Demarco Murray on the outs in Philadelphia? Is there a more frustrating running back by committee other than the New York Giants? Is the depth chart shake up in Houston temporary? We tackle these questions and search for running back lineup solutions entering Week 1 of the fantasy playoffs.

Kansas City Chiefs – Ware stays involved in West’s return

It is a privilege to serve as the starting running back for Andy Reid. He truly understands the mechanics of utilizing the running back position to its full potential. Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware have made seamless transitions from no-named back-up to starter and have returned elite results.

Since the season-ending injury to Jamaal Charles during Week 5, West went from zero career carries to the overall RB6 in standard formats leading up to his own hamstring injury sustained during Week 11. Enter Spencer Ware, who possessed slightly more experience (9 career carries) before taking over the starting spot in relief of West and is tied for the overall RB3 during Weeks 11-13.

  • What about CJ Spiller vs Tim Hightower?
