2. Maurice Jones-Drew:  263 total yards and 3 TDs vs. Indy last year.
3. Arian Foster:  Favorable match-up against Oakland.
4. Frank Gore:  Will new OC get things going for San Fran offense?

7. LeSean McCoy:  101 total yards vs. Skins at home last year.
8. Rashard Mendenhall:  Tough draw against Baltimore.
9. Cedric Benson:  Strong play against Cleveland.
10. Darren McFadden:  Run DMC continues to shed the bust label vs. HOU.

13. DeAngelo Williams:  149 yards and 2 TDs last time he played Saints.
14. Clinton Portis:  McNabb will need his new friends to beat his old ones.

16. Beanie Wells:  Nice play if he can stay healthy vs. SD.

25. Jonathan Stewart:  163 total yards and TD in 2 games vs. NO last year.
26. Ricky Williams:  Fins will try to control clock to keep Brady watching.
27.  John Kuhn:  Good chance to score vs. Detroit
28. Marshawn Lynch:  Top choice of an ugly three-headed RB set.
29. BenJarvus Green-Ellis:  Law firm will move up ranks if Fred Taylor is out.
