Grab a Helmet

Cordarrelle Patterson

Cordarrelle Patterson vs CHI

C-Patt has only seen 18 carries in the two games since his return, but he should be the offensive focus against a Chicago defense getting gashed on the ground. After trading away two of their defensive stalwarts, the Bears are giving up 142 rushing yards a game, 5th worst in the NFL.

Brian Robinson Jr. @ HOU

We saw the Commander blueprint for success on Monday night against the Eagles. Control the line of scrimmage with a bruising running game, and harass the opposing offense with an endless parade of defensive lineman. Robinson hasnít been very efficient this season, as his 3.3 yards-per-carry average can attest, but he runs hard and should get most of the goal line opportunities. He returns much less value in PPR leagues, but should be a strong play against Houstonís bottom tier run defense.

Kenyan Drake vs CAR

With full control of the backfield in Week 9, Drake piled up a 24-93-2 line in a Monday night win. The 24 attempts were the most by Drake in several years, and the most by a single Baltimore running back in several years. With Edwards expected back, Drake wonít hit 24 attempts again, but he still should lead the backfield in touches against a poor Carolina defense.

Grab Some Pine

James Conner vs SF

A two-touchdown day and a surprisingly competent offense helped Conner to a solid Week 10. With prime backup Eno Benjamin jettisoned earlier this week, nothing stands in the way of a monster workload for Conner here on out. Unfortunately, the Week 11 matchup against the Niners and the leagueís best run defense is ugly. If you can pivot to a higher floor play do it, but it could be tough going to rely on Conner this week.

Rams RBS @ NO

With no offensive line, and no Copper Kupp to attract attention, this Rams offense is going to be tough to watch. LA has tried a constant rotation of backs to try and jumpstart the run game, no one has been able to get a stranglehold. Maybe rookie Kyren Williams is it, but Iím certainly not taking a chance on anyone as we approach the stretch run of the fantasy regular season.

D'Onta Foreman @ BAL

Talent was never a question with Foreman, it’s always been health and opportunity. Now that the two have meshed, Foreman has piled up three 100+ yard games and four touchdowns over the last four weeks. Despite the hot streak, Foreman faces a Baltimore defense rounding into form and limiting opposing run games to only 92 yards-per-game. There’s a very good chance the game script gets out of hand, making Foreman a risky play.
