We are reaching the final stretch of games in the fantasy football world before the playoffs begin.

At this point, the majority of the sleepers for the season have been picked up. Now it's time to just sit back and see who is going to perform.

Here are projections for the three running backs sure to dominate opponents this weekend.


3. LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia)

The Philadelphia Eagles season has been a major disappointment for fans in the city of brotherly love.

However, there has been a bright spot at the running back position. LeSean McCoy has shown us this year that he has potential to be the greatest player at his position in the history of the Eagles.

He has been the one player fans could count on all year. They will need to count on him again this weekend, especially if Vick is out.

McCoy ran for 128 yards and a touchdown the first time Philadelphia played the Giants.


2. Matt Forte (Chicago)

The Chicago Bears may not be having as poor of a season as the Philadelphia Eagles.

However, the majority of their offense has come at the running back position as well. Matt Forte has really carried this team.

He is currently third in the league in rushing yards at 869.

This weekend the Bears take on a struggling San Diego team. The Chargers have struggled recently stopping the run.


1. Adrian Peterson (Minnesota)

LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson may have burst onto the scene this year as the top two rushers in terms of yards.

Adrian Peterson is still the best running back in the league. This weekend he is in for a treat against the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland may be leading the AFC West, but they haven't done it due to their impressive play against the run. They are allowing 5.2 yards per carry, which is tied for the worst in the league.
