Tevin Coleman

Coleman has always had the talent to become a great fantasy Running Back. It was only a matter of him getting enough volume to produce to his full potential, which he now has. It’s long been a staple of the Atlanta offense to feature two running backs, and with Freeman on IR, Ito Smith should continue to factor into the game plan. Coleman isn’t really built to handle 20+ rushing attempts anyway. But if he can see consistent passing game usage, it will solidify his RB2 floor and allow for more explosive RB1 weeks like the one we just saw. Coleman has a great matchup this week vs Cleveland. Over the last four weeks, the Browns have allowed an average of 5.4 yards per rush. Plug Coleman in your lineup and expect great production.

Mike Davis

With Chris Carson leaving the game this past week at halftime, it was time for Davis to handle the bulk of the workload in the Seattle backfield. He did not disappoint as he racked up seven catches for 45 yards to go along with his 15 carries for 62 yards. Davis is great in the passing game which is nice for fantasy owners to hear because regardless of the score, he will be getting touches. With his efficiency, now it’s about his volume. Well, the Seahawks are the only team in the NFL that has thrown the ball on fewer than half their offensive plays. They are also third in the league with 137.1 yards per game on the ground. Davis will be up against The Rams in Week 10. The Rams have allowed five touchdowns to running backs in their past two games against Green Bay and New Orleans. Seattle also has at least one running back either scoring or gaining at least 100 total yards in five of the past six games. Mike Davis is a top 20 RB as long as Carson is missing time.


Trending Down

Kerryon Johnson

This past week Johnson had his worst performance since Week 1. He had 12 carries for 37 yards, as well as three catches for 7 yards on five targets. He should perform better this week at Chicago, but it might not be by much. Keep in mind that Johnson has just one touchdown on the season, which was in Week 4 at Dallas. And the Bears have yet to allow a touchdown to a running back on the ground this year. Chicago also has allowed just one running back to gain more than 60 rushing yards this season, which was Frank Gore in Week 6. Johnson is a flex option at best this week.

Corey Clement

Clement was a hot waiver-wire add a few weeks back, but he’s seen just 32 percent of the snaps and has averaged fewer touches per game than Wendell Smallwood since Week 6. This past week he had a total of three yards on four touches in the first half, and he was limited to one carry in the second half. With Josh Adams looking good and taking on a bigger role, it would not be surprising to see Clement fall out of the rotation. Eagles Running Backs draw a tough matchup against the Cowboys this week. Clement is a hard sell as even a flex starter.
