The ever changing world of NFL running backs continues to run wild as we hit the quarter pole of the 2011 NFL season. The biggest story from last week was the emergence of the Dolphins' Daniel Thomas as a legitimate guy to have in your lineup on a weekly basis. How will the situation in Houston break down this week as coach Gary Kubiak seems to have given Arian Foster a vote of confidence for this week. Can Adrian Peterson and Darren McFadden continue their great starts? Will Chris Johnson and Rashard Mendenhall continue to struggle? How will Bernard Scott due in the absence of Cedric Benson in Cincinnati? Has Jahvid Best fallen out of favor with his fantasy owners? Look no further than Fantasy Alarm's rankings when you are setting your lineups each and every week.
Injuries and slow starts have blurred the pictures of the fantasy football running backs early on, as owners of Chris Johnson, Jamaal Charles, and Arian Foster are left wondering how their top picks went so wrong so quickly. Well, hopefully they drafted some depth and went with Beanie Wells, Ryan Mathews, and Fred Jackson. So, now the questions become what to expect from Daniel Thomas, Ben Tate, DeMarco Murray, and Roy Helu going forward? Which of these guys are the next to be in the top ten of these rankings? I guess you will have to read below to find out the answers to those questions.
How great was it to see football again last Sunday? Well, Sunday, Thursday, and Monday! There were a bunch of big disappointments led by Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, and Peyton Hillis, so what will we see in Week 2? Will Ray Rice put another great week up? Is Tim Hightower for real in Washington? What can we expect from Chris Johnson in Week 2? Is Arian Foster healthy enough to play on Sunday and can Beanie Wells put more stats on the board and continue his breakout season? You always have to be deep at running back because inevitably injuries are going to strike like they did for Steven Jackson and Knowshon Moreno, so be sure you pay attention to games on Sunday. When you are setting your lineups for the upcoming week be sure that you take a look at the following running back rankings.
