Maurice Jones-Drew, JAC
Maurice is getting hot and finally justifying his top-five draft pick.
MJD ran for 133 yards and broke the goal line once while hauling in three catches for 87 yards.
One of his receptions was a screen play where he essentially embarrassed the entire Browns' defense.
This is the third straight 100-yard rushing performance by Jones-Drew and he has a tasty fantasy playoff schedule.
If you patiently held onto Maurice through his rough start, congratulations. You should be in for a wild ride down the stretch.
Fred Jackson, BUF
Fred is getting the lion's share of carries, and he's making the most of them.
Jackson broke the century mark and recorded two touchdowns for the second straight week.
He has a tough schedule remaining, but as a focal point of the Bills' offense, he'll continue to get plenty of touches to produce.
Cedric Benson, CIN
Cedric recorded his second 100-plus rushing yard performance of the season. He ran for 124 yards and a touchdown with three receptions going for 22 yards.
While the Bengals' season is essentially over, Benson is playing for that next big pay day. He may not have an easy schedule, but you know he'll continue to run hard.
Thomas Jones, KC
After a pathetic performance last week in which he piled up 22 total yards from scrimmage, Jones bounced back with a huge effort against the Cardinals.
Thomas ran for 71 yards and reached the end zone twice.
The Chiefs are a run -team and they have a favorable schedule coming up. Play him with confidence.
Michael Turner, ATL
After getting completely shut down by the Ravens defense last week, Turner went berserk against the Rams.
Michael ran for 131 yards and a touchdown.
With the exception of a matchup against Green Bay next week, Atlanta has a soft schedule the rest of the way. Expect more performances like he had on Sunday.
Matt Forte, CHI
From week to week, you never really know what you'll get out of Forte.
At least this past Sunday, he exceeded expectations and ran for 97 yards and a touchdown.
He has a tough schedule coming up, but his 25 carries is a good sign for his future prospects, especially since he received some goal-line work.
Danny Woodhead, NE
The diminutive running back-wide receiver hybrid continues to be a steady source of production.
Danny piled up 90 total yards from scrimmage and he pulled off a ridiculous 36-yard scamper for a score against the Colts.
Mike Goodson, CAR
Goodson appears to have the running back position in Carolina all to himself with DeAngelo Williams out for the year and Jonathan Stewart hobbled.
Against the Ravens' defense, Goodson practically made up the entire Panthers offense, rushing for 120 yards.
This is his second-straight 100-plus rushing yard performance.
Frank Gore, SF
Gore was abysmal against Tampa Bay and its horrendous rush defense.
He managed only 23 rushing yards on 12 attempts, with five receptions going for 37 yards.
Not really sure what to make of this performance since he's been on a hot streak with four straight productive games.
Next week's matchup with Arizona should cure his troubles.
Felix Jones, DAL
After a strong game against the New York Giants, Felix was expected to run wild against the Detroit Lions.
Well, he was a massive disappointment, getting only 86 total yards from scrimmage with a fumble lost.
Adrian Peterson, MIN
For the second week in a row, Adrian was held to a sub-73-yard rushing performance and failed to get into the end zone.
Washington and Buffalo are up next, but he has a tough schedule for the fantasy playoffs.
Owners can only hope that Brett Favre finds his form and eases the constant seven-and-eight-man fronts Peterson sees on a weekly basis.
