Seems like the running back landscape continues to change. Carlos Hyde was dealt to the Jacksonville Jaguars, effectively squashing his fantasy value. Here are some players on the rise.
.
Doug Martin, Oakland Raiders – With Marshawn Lynch out a month with a groin injury, the veteran takes over. He hasn’t done much year to date, but Martin has a nice track record.
.
Raheem Mostert, San Francisco 49ers – Another Bay Area Back that is trending upward. Matt Brieda is hobbled. Mostert has averaged 82.5 total yards the past two games. Seems like he should get more touches.
.
Marlon Mack, Indianapolis Colts – Mack followed up a decent effort in Week 6 with a gem against the lowly Buffalo Bills. He’ll come back to Earth, but he has established himself as the Colts’ lead back.
.
Chris Ivory, Buffalo Bills – Speaking on the lowly Bills, Ivory would be worth a shot if LeSean McCoy missed any action.
.
Kenjon Barner, New England Patriots – If Sony Michel misses any time, Barner could see some touches. Then again, New England could reinvent their offense.
.
LeGarrette Blount, RB, Detroit Lions – Particularly for touchdown heavy leagues.
