Adrian Peterson: OK, so you should start Adrian Peterson no matter what. But this week you should really start Adrian Peterson. Seriously, try and petition to get to start him twice. He will tear apart 29th ranked rush defense. All Day will do whatever he wants...all day.
LaDainian Tomlinson: The Jets will get back to their ground and pound ways this week after forgetting their identity briefly against the Green Bay Packers when they threw the ball 38 times and only gave Tomlinson and Shonn Greene 22 combined carries. Tomlinson's tirade will come at the expense of the Detroit Lions 27th ranked run defense.
Michael Turner: As mentioned previously, the Falcons will most likely attack the Buccaneers on the ground. This will bode well for Turner, who should easily get over 20 carries.
Cedric Benson: The Steelers may be vulnerable against the pass, but they are stout against the run. It is important to note that defensive lineman Aaron Smith is out, so there may just be more room for Benson to run free. But it's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to running backs playing against the Steelers.
Darren McFadden: The Kansas City Chiefs boast the NFL's seventh ranked run defense. They will also be keying in on McFadden, the Raiders most dangerous weapon. If any Oakland running back is going to have success in a game that should be a grind-it-out defensive struggle, it may be Michael Bush.
Ahmad Bradshaw: Playing on the road in Seattle is never an easy task. The Seahawks also have a stout run defense (ranked 10th in the league). Avoid Bradshaw, as the Giants will most likely attack the Seahawks 29th ranked pass defense.
