Top 3 Fantasy Football Starts at Running Back Position


1. Arian Foster at Denver

Is there a steadier fantasy running back than Arian Foster? If so, drop a line in the comments section. I can’t find one.

Dating back to mid-October of last year, he’s only had one game in which he didn’t eclipse 75 total yards or didn’t score a touchdown.

The guy’s money.

2. C.J. Spiller at Cleveland

The Bills are 1-1. Spiller is 2-0.

He’s looking like the Clemson stud Buffalo drafted in the first round of the 2010 draft, demonstrating a tremendous initial burst that’s complemented by improved vision and decisiveness.

More importantly, Chan Gailey is utilizing the speedy runner out of the spread offense, and the Bills offensive line is severely underrated. Therefore, Spiller is seeing some gaping holes in front of him and has the skill set to make the most of them.

The Browns defense is developing into a sound unit, but they did allow LeSean McCoy, a guy with similar abilities to that of Spiller, to run for 5.5 yards per carry in Week 1.

3. Maurice Jones-Drew at Indianapolis


Well, kind of.

He actually received fewer carries and was not as productive in Week 2 as he was in Week 1, but not to worry.

Jones-Drew is again the featured runner in Jacksonville’s offense with Rashad Jennings nursing a knee injury.

In a game that should be tightly contested, look for Mike Mularkey to lean on the veteran bruiser.
