Here’s the LestersLegends Week 11 2011 fantasy football running back rankings:
1. Adrian Peterson vs. Oakland: The Raiders are giving up 132.4 yards per game on the ground at 5.2 yards per carry.
2. LeSean McCoy at New York Giants: He continues to produce despite the letdown the Eagles have been. The G-Men are giving up 121.6 YPG at 4.6 YPC.
3. DeMarco Murray at Washington: He is averaging 170.5 total yards over his past four games. The 'Skins are giving up 120.4 YPG.
4. Matt Forte vs. San Diego: He is averaging 145.3 total yards per game. The Chargers are giving up 127.9 YPG at 4.5 YPC.
5. Maurice Jones-Drew at Cleveland: He is averaging 106.9 total YPG. He has yet to turn in a poor performance. The Browns are giving up 142.8 YPG at 4.4 YPC.
6. Steven Jackson vs. Seattle: He’s had 140-plus total yards the past three games and averaged 136.4 over the past five.
7. Frank Gore vs. Arizona: Could be a light load for Gore, but the Niners are trying for home field. The Cardinals have allowed 12 rushing TDs and 123.1 YPG.
8. Michael Turner vs. Tennessee: He is averaging 92.3 yards over the past six games with six touchdowns. The Titans are giving up 125.2 YPG.
9. Fred Jackson at Miami: The Bills are fading, but Jackson is still producing. He hasn’t scored since Week 6 though, and has fumbled in his past two games.
10 Ray Rice vs. Cincinnati: He has one 100-yard rushing game since Week 2, but his total yardage is usually solid.
11. Marshawn Lynch at St. Louis: He has scored in five straight games that he’s played in and topped 100 yards in his past two. The Rams are dead last giving up 150.6 YPG at 5.1 YPC.
12. Michael Bush at Minnesota: The Vikings are good against the run, but Bush is moving the chains averaging 160.7 total yards over the past three games. His ranking is assuming McFadden is out again.
13. Reggie Bush vs. Buffalo: He is averaging 104.3 total yards and a touchdown the past three games. The Bills have allowed 125.4 YPG at 4.6 YPC and 11 TDs.
14. Chris Johnson at Atlanta: Atlanta is good against the run, but CJ is getting into a groove.
15. Shonn Greene at Denver: Green didn’t get much action last week as the Jets went to the air. He finished with 4.7 YPC, though.
16. BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs. Kansas City: He continues to flounder, but he’s played some tough defenses of late. He should get back on track against the Chiefs (134.0 YPG allowed).
17. Brandon Jacobs vs. Philadelphia: The Eagles have improved against the run, but his size will likely be an issue. His ranking is assuming Bradshaw is out again.
18. Ryan Mathews at Chicago: He will continue to share the load with Mike Tolbert. The Bears are playing inspired football further harming his value.
19. Willis McGahee vs. New York Jets: Looks like he'll start. He's banged up so he's a risk not to finish the game.
20. James Starks at Tampa Bay: The Bucs rank 29th against the run (138.2 YPG). This will still be the Aaron Rodgers Show, but Starks should have a solid showing.
21. Maurice Morris vs. Carolina: The Panthers rank 28th against the run (137.6 YPG). He’s only averaged 59.3 total YPG the past three games, but the matchup is favorable.
22. Cedric Benson at Baltimore: This should be a very physical game. Benson has been consistent this year. Unfortunately, he’s been consistently mediocre.
23. Jonathan Stewart at Detroit: The Lions are giving up 134.4 YPG so perhaps this is his chance.
24. Mike Tolbert at Chicago: The matchup isn’t favorable, but Tolbert should continue to see.
25. Jackie Battle at New England: The Patriots offense could take Battle out of the mix, but he’s averaging 73.2 YPG over his past five games.
26. Kendall Hunter vs. Arizona: If the Niners get up early, Hunter could close the game out.
27. Chris Ogbonnaya vs. Jacksonville: He has little competition for carries. The Jags are middle-of-the road against the run.
28. LeGarrett Blount at Green Bay: Stop me if you’ve heard this before. The Bucs get down and abandon the run. They are highly likely to repeat this against the Packers.
29. DeAngelo Williams at Detroit: He has only topped 50 yards twice this year. Perhaps a third?
30. Roy Helu vs. Dallas: Helu is the back that should be getting the ball. He’s not good enough to deal with the "Shanahanigans," though.
