7. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Lacy finally lived up to his expectations by pounding the Minnesota Vikings for 132 total yards and a pair of touchdowns. That gives him three scores in the past two games. He’ll try to stay hot against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have allowed 107.3 rushing yards per game.
.
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.
.
9. Lamar Miller, Miami Dolphins
Miller has averaged 99.5 yards and a touchdown the past two weeks. He should stay hot against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have allowed 163 yards and 1.2 touchdowns per game.
.
10. Frank Gore, San Francisco 49ers
Gore recorded his second-straight 100-yard game last week against the Kansas City Chiefs. He’s now averaging 86.6 total yards and 0.4 touchdowns per game. He should roll on the Rams.
.
11. Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals
Ellington is averaging 100 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He faces the Washington Redskins.
.
12. Andre Williams, New York Giants
Assuming Rashad Jennings is unable to go due to a knee injury, Williams becomes a strong replacement this week against the Eagles. He has averaged 74.5 total yards and a touchdown in the past two games. Philly has allowed 132 rushing yards per game.
.
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.
.
14. Ronnie Hillman, Denver Broncos
Hillman had 64 yards last week after Montee Ball went out with a groin injury. He has a good chance to establish himself as the lead back against the Jets.
.
15. Alfred Morris, Washington Redskins
Morris is averaging 69 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He has another tough matchup against the Cardinals.
