Justin Forsett ($6200) – Jeremy Hill looked great against Oakland last week and Justin Forsett has a bigger role in his offense. Joe Flacco desperately needs playmakers and he won’t be afraid to continue using Forsett out of the backfield. Double digit targets is possible if the game is close. If it is a blow out, Forsett gets all the carries. He is in a win-win situation.
Mark Ingram ($5900) – If C.J. Spiller (questionable) doesn’t play, Mark Ingram will continue to see lots of targets in the pass game. Even if Spiller returns, which would lower Ingram’s ownership, Mark Ingram will feast on Tampa Bay’s defense. The Saints will be up big (10 point favorites) and Ingram will get tons of carries in the second half to put the icing on the cake.
Lamar Miller ($5500) – The Miami Dolphins played in a weird game last week where they ran 14 less plays than the Redskins. Lamar Miller didn’t get the volume he usually gets, but that will change this week. The Dolphins are big favorites against the Jaguars, who have actually been holding quarterbacks in the past few weeks. Game flow and volume should put Lamar Miller back on the low-end RB1 map.
Ameer Abdullah ($4500) – After seeing what Carlos Hyde did against the Vikings, we all should be licking our chops about Abdullah this week. Despite seeing only 28 snaps last week, Ameer wend for 19.4 fantasy points. His share of touches should go up every week. His ceiling is through the roof.
Shane Vereen ($4200) – The Falcons defense looks improved, but Vereen is in a great spot as the passing back in week 2. With OBJ having a tough matchup against top 10 CB Desmond Trufant, Eli Manning will look elsewhere to move the chains. Vereen could get extra looks if the Falcons jump out to an early lead similarly like they did on MNF against the Eagles. The Falcons linebackers aren’t too intimidating either.
Danny Woodhead ($4000) – Woodhead is one season removed from being the RB12 in PPR. The Chargers don’t have complete faith in Melvin Gordon yet and solely rely on Woodhead both on 3rd down and in the Red Zone (8 touches to Melvin’s 0) giving Woodhead TD upside.
