Mikel Leshoure, Lions
We're not picking on the Lions, promise. But the matchup for Leshoure in Week 7 is concerning, to say the least. Chicago is the No. 4 defense against opposing running backs this season, and no back has found the end zone on the Bears since Week 1. Leshoure will get the lion's share of carries Monday night, but the production will likely be minimal.
Shonn Greene, New York Jets
Don't be fooled by Greene's 161-yard, three-touchdown outburst in Week 6. In his previous four games, Greene had rushing totals of 23, 40, 34 and 26 with zero touchdowns. You just can't trust the guy. New England has actually been very good against opposing running backs, allowing under 10 fantasy points a game to the position this season. Don't get burned by Greene again in Week 7.
Steven Jackson, St. Louis Rams
The carries are slowly starting to erode for Jackson, who is splitting the Rams backfield with rookie Daryl Richardson these days. He'll still get 10-15 touches most weeks, but Jackson simply hasn't done a lot with the opportunities this season. He's failed to crack 80 yards or find the end zone in six games in 2012. Start him with caution, especially considering the explosive Packers are coming to St. Louis in Week 7.
Benjarvus Green-Ellis, Cincinnati Bengals
The Steelers defense isn't the same cement wall it has been in year's past, but this is still a unit that has kept opposing running backs under 100 yards in four of five games season. Green-Ellis hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire recently, either. The Lawfirm has failed to go over seven fantasy points in four-straight weeks, so temper your expectations for him in Week 7.
