It’s tough to stumble upon a sure thing in fantasy football, but Week 10 of the NFL season offers a few running backs that will run up and down the field.

The league is full of superior athletes, but these three RBs are definitely among the quickest players in the league.

Here are the three players who will unload fantasy points in Week 10.


LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy is turning heads with runs like this.

He is, without a doubt, the brightest spot on the Philadelphia Eagles roster. If the Eagles could hold onto a lead in the fourth quarter, McCoy would be getting MVP consideration.

With the lowly Arizona Cardinals up next, McCoy will shine against their middle-of-the-pack run defense. If the Eagles offensive line continues to play well, McCoy will get even more touches. 


Maurice Jones-Drew

The Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off a bye week.

Maurice Jones-Drew got a chance to rest and will be a dominant figure on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts allow 146.1 yards per game, which is second-worst in the NFL.

MJD can also catch the ball in the backfield, but has only done so 12 times this season. If the Colts try to lock down Jones-Drew and the Jaguars running game, expect him to get some looks in the passing game.

Jones-Drew is the best offensive weapon on this Jaguars team. They’ll use him however they can.


Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries against the Green Bay Packers on Oct. 23. That performance included this run.

Who’s going to stop him this time? It's the Vikings' turn to travel to Green Bay, and they'll be hoping to give the Packers another run for their money on Monday Night Football.

Regardless of how close the game ends up being, Peterson will undoubtedly get his carries and yards.
