I don't ever remember having such a long list of running backs this year but we'll definitely take it.
The Jaguars have not established a running game all season but after firing their offensive coordinator, they were able to get something going on the ground. Ivory looked sharp against a solid Chiefs defense and he is the running back to own on the Jaguars. Now it's important to note that TJ Yeldon and Ivory played well before they both lost costly fumbles in this game. However, the Ivory fumble was a questionable call and should have actually been ruled a touchdown. Yeldon worked in on a good amount of plays and won't be going away. Still... it was nice to see Jacksonville commit to the running game and I expect that to continue moving forward.
Doug Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers missed practice on Monday and Antone Smith is done for the year which means Barber is next in line to get injured... Shit, sorry! I meant Barber is next in line to get the start. If Martin and Rodgers miss another week then Barber will be a solid start based on volume.
Maybe this player will go back to being irrelevant in week 10 but he is still worth a stash. He got a lot of work early on and played a good game before Mark Ingram took over. Moving forward the Saints will likely use a committee approach. At the very least he will be a solid handcuff to Ingram.
Gary Kubiak said that Bibbs has earned more touches in the offense and he had a good enough outing against the Raiders to warrant an add to your roster. I can't recommend starting him in week 10 so just hold him for now and see how they use him.
It looks like the Seahawks aren't going to commit to Christine Michael or C.J. Prosise because they didn't seem to do that on Monday night. Prosise finished the game with a total of 4 touches while Michael finished with 5. The Seahawks need production from the running back position as soon as possible and once Rawls is healthy he will likely have a shot at taking over. Stash him now for the fantasy playoffs.
Another player that may not help you until the fantasy playoffs but has the high upside you are looking for is Lewis. He is getting healthier and may return in the next few weeks so he is worth a stash if you have the space for him. It's a good time to start thinking about the fantasy playoffs if your record is good enough.
I don't have much confidence in this player because there hasn't been much relevance at this position for the Giants all season. If you are in a deep league then he's worth a stash due to the increased playing time he has received but Perkins isn't a very talented player and the offense isn't efficient enough to produce points for you, especially with so many other running backs mixing in.
He got most of the work against the Saints and if Carlos Hyde misses another game then he should get most of the work again in week 10. The 49ers will face the Cardinals so even if Hyde is out, there may not be much relevance and he would only be useable if you are truly desperate.
