Running Back Carousel Continues

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.
