Put Em In – Edwards

Week 1 Repeat?

1.Arian Foster – At the beginning of the season, Foster torched the Colts for over 200 yards on the ground. His opponent this week? The Colts. I doubt he can replicate that kind of success but look for the former Volunteer to rack up the fantasy points.

2.Darren McFadden – Run DMC had a break-out fantasy game last week against the Broncos, scoring four touchdowns. This type of play is what the Raiders envisioned when selecting him in the Top 10 in ’08. I expect McFadden to have a strong game this week against the Seahawks. Start him with confidence.

3.Ryan Torain – Torain has put together back to back 100-yard games and should continue the streak against the Lions average-at-best run defense. Expect Torain to make it rain…that just happened.

Leave Em Out

1.Cedric Benson – I can’t say this enough so I’ll say it again, I’m not a fan of Benson. *cough…overrated…cough* On top of that he has continuously faced tough defenses this season and faces the stingy Dolphins D this week. Sit him if you can.

2.Brandon Jackson – Jackson has shown some signs of fantasy life recently but I don’t expect much against an excellent Jets defense. Look for another option.

3.Beanie Wells – Wells has taken over the lion-share of carries in Arizona and has run well. Unfortunately for Wells, his QB play has been horrible. With that said, look for the Buccaneers to put eight in the box and force the concussed Max Hall to beat them through the air. This doesn’t add up to great fantasy numbers for Wells. Search the waiver wire if you can.

Sleeper

I will, hit you!

LeGarrette Blount – I can’t believe I’m even typing his name but Blount has somehow not only played his way into the Tampa rotation but also taken over the bulk of the carries. I’m hesitant to promote any fantasy stability here but if you’re desperate this week give him a look.
