Inside the numbers:

  • Mojo remained on fire, posting his sixth straight 100+ yard day. He faces the Colts this week, who he has only averaged 128.2 total yards with 11 touchdowns in nine career games against them.
  • Run DMC has 336 total yards and four touchdowns in  his past two games. He should destroy Denver, a team he had 196 total yards and four touchdowns against earlier this season.
  • Michael Turner quietly has six touchdowns in his past four games and ten touchdowns in his past seven games. Good luck Seattle.
  • Peyton Hillis has lost five fumbles this year. A stat that keeps him out of the top five ranking this week.
  • With the Vikings in complete disarray, it’s hard to consider Adrian Peterson a RB1 against a Bears team that is coming off an embarrassing defeat.
  • LeGarrette Blount did not meet expectations against Washington, but should bounce back against Detroit.
  • Felix Jones, Tim Hightower, and Jonathan Stewart should continue to produce while Thomas Jones and LaDainian Tomlinson continue to slide.
  • Ronnie Brown actually  makes a RB2 option this week against Buffalo, who is allowing 165.8 yards per game on the ground.
