Murray is averaging 158.8 yards and 1.2 touchdowns per game. He has at least 100 yards in every game this year, and last week was the first that he didn’t score a touchdown. He has a tough matchup against the Seahawks, but the Cowboys’ offensive line has been dominant.
.
7. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers

8. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
Shady is averaging 68.4 total yards with just one score. He only had 81 yards against a St. Louis Rams team that is allowing 152.5 rushing yards per game. McCoy only has 69 receiving yards. It’s getting hard to recommend him as an RB1, especially this week against the surging New York Giants.

.
13. Branden Oliver, San Diego Chargers
Oliver racked up 182 total yards and a pair of touchdowns last week against the New York Jets as Donald Brown left with a concussion. He should produce again this week against the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders have allowed 158.3 yards and a touchdown per game.
.

.
11. Arian Foster, Houston Texans
Foster is averaging 110.3 total yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game. As long as his hamstring doesn’t give him issues, Foster is a solid RB1 against the Cowboys.

.
2. DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys
Murray is averaging 149 total yards and a touchdown per game. He faces the New Orleans Saints in what should be a shootout. The Saints have allowed 101.3 rushing yards per game despite facing the Atlanta Falcons and the Minnesota Vikings sans Adrian Peterson.

.
5. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
Shady is averaging 79.7 yards with just one touchdown through three games. He hasn’t exactly lived up to his expectations. With a date with the San Francisco 49ers on the horizon, your expectations for McCoy should be lowered. That said, he’s still a must-start.
.
6. Rashad Jennings, New York Giants
Jennings is averaging 127 total yards and 0.7 touchdowns through three games. The Washington Redskins have been tough against the run, but Jennings can produce in the passing game as well.
.
7. Arian Foster, Houston Texans
Foster has 270 total yards and a touchdown, but a hamstring injury forced him to miss last week. If he’s healthy he should roll be effective against the Buffalo Bills. Just have a backup plan in place.
.
8. Knile Davis, Kansas City Chiefs
Davis has 237 total yards and three touchdowns over the past two weeks while filling in for Jamaal Charles. As long as Charles’ ankle keeps him out again, Davis should be solid against the New England Patriots.

.
12. Khiry Robinson, New Orleans Saints
Robinson had 69 yards last week as the lead back last week against the Vikings. He should have a solid game against the Cowboys. They have allowed 110 rushing yards per game.
.
13. C.J. Spiller, Buffalo Bills
Spiller is averaging 68 total yards and 0.7 touchdowns. He faces the Houston Texans. Spiller is due for a big game.
.
14. Ahmad Bradshaw, Indianapolis Colts
Bradshaw is averaging 88 total yards and a touchdown per game. He faces the Tennessee Titans. The Titans have allowed 134.3 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game. Bradshaw has been extremely effective in the passing game.

11. Frank Gore, San Francisco 49ers
Gore shared the load with Carlos Hyde last week, but still managed 66 yards. Look for Gore to do the early damage against the Chicago Bears. The Bears allowed 193 rushing yards last week.
.
12. Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins
Morris had 91 yards last week against the Houston Texans. This week he plays the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags gave up 145 yards last week.
.
13.  Chris Johnson, New York Jets
Chris Johnson had 91 total yards and a touchdown last week.  He faces a Green Bay Packers defense that was shredded for 207 rushing yards last week.
.
14. Knowshon Moreno, Miami Dolphins
Moreno ran for 134 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots. He faces the Buffalo Bills this week. They gave up 86 rushing yards last week at 4.8 yards per carry.
.
15. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Lacy will have to get cleared from last week’s concussion, but if he does he should be a solid RB2 option against the Jets.
.
16. Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals
Ellington had 80 total yards despite the injury scare. He’s a solid RB2 option against the New York Giants. The G-Men allowed a pair of rushing touchdowns last week.
.
17. C.J. Spiller, Buffalo Bills
Spiller had 64 total yards and a touchdown last week against the Bears. He keeps losing production to Fred Jackson, but has big-play potential against the Miami Dolphins.
.
18. Zac Stacy, St. Louis Rams
Stacy had 51 total yards against the Vikings last week. He should be more productive against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs gave up 113 rushing yards last week.
.
19. Rashard Jennings, New York Giants
Jennings had 96 total yards and a touchdown in his Giants’ debut. He has a tough draw against the Cardinals, but does enough in the passing game to be a solid RB2.
