Grab a Helmet

Devin Singletary

Devin Singletary vs ARI

Singletary enjoyed a career day last week against a usually stout Bengal defense, finishing with a 30-150-1 line. The 5í7íí scat-back seems to be a better fit in this new wide-open Texan offense. With Stroud pushing the ball downfield at a historic clip, Singletary should see more of the giant rushing lanes he had last week, especially against an Arizona defense yielding the 3rd most fantasy points to the position.

Tony Pollard @ CAR

By most measures Pollard has been a pretty big fantasy bust this season. Touchdowns seem to be the boogeyman (he hasnít scored since Week 1), and his lack of burst, and inconsistent deployment as a pass catcher has capped his ceiling. Despite being an offensive juggernaut at times, Dallas is 18th in the NFL in redone touchdown percentage. Iím betting on a positive regression in that area down the stretch, and Pollard should benefit from one of the worst rush defenses in the NFL.

Aaron Jones vs LAC

Jones and the Packer run game just havenít been able to find their footing this season. Jones has career low efficiency numbers as his current 3.7 yards-per-carry is by far the worst heís ever had. But with the tissue paper Charger defense coming to town, this could be the week to take advantage of. LA has given up the 2nd most receptions to backs (61) and the 9th most total fantasy points.

Grab Some Pine

Rachaad White @ SF

A brutal 3.3 yards per carry average limits his rushing ceiling, but White has made up the slack by averaging four receptions a game. The Niner defense is still one of the best in the league and fresh off dismantling the Jags. You need to keep rolling him out on a weekly basis, but without a touchdown there might not be much meat on the bone.

Chicago RBs @ DET

Not only could this backfield be a mess with the potential return of Khalil Herbert, but Detroit has really put the clamps on backs. The Lions have yet to allow a runner to pass 67 yards, and have given up the 7th fewest fantasy points to the position. Add in the Justin Fields vulture potential, and this is a backfield to avoid if you can swing it.

Jaleel McLaughlin vs MIN

For a few weeks it really looked like McLaughlin had played his way into a fair share of a committee role with Javonte Williams, but over the last two weeks Williams has been a workhorse, touching the ball a whopping 55 times. That volume has all but phased McLaughlin out of the offense except for a few meager scraps. With a 6-to-8 touch ceiling, McLaughlin is too risky a FLEX start for any format.
