This week has matchups made for running backs.
Your running back will more than likely produce the majority of your points for you this week.
Here are the three top running backs to start.
Ryan Torain had a great Week 4 game for the Redskins and then his team had a bye. Is he going to do it again?
The answer is yes. He is coming up against the worst defense at defending the run in the NFL.
The Philadelphia Eagles have given up the most fantasy points to running backs this season, and Torain will be getting a lot of carries against them this weekend.
Darren McFadden has been arguably the best running back this season.
He has had many great showings so far this season, and he is going to run rampant on the Browns on Sunday.
The Raiders are playing their first game at home after the passing of Al Davis, and this is going to be an emotionally-charged matchup to watch.
Davis was a big advocate for McFadden, and McFadden will pay tribute to the late, great Al Davis.
Cedric Benson and the Bengals have not done too much this season, and it has been hard for some to want to take a chance on a back who is part of an offense that has not been spending much time in possession.
Benson is coming up against the Colts, who are allowing the seventh most fantasy points to running backs this season.
Everything for Indianapolis seems to be imploding this season, and the Bengals will capitalize on the chance to grab a victory.
With the Bengals and Benson capitalizing, you must take this opportunity to use him and get a win for yourself.
