I might have been a bit too conservative with these selections – but I really wanted to focus on the guys with a good matchup. It’s a limited list of guys, but I think you can roll comfortably with these guys and sometimes less is more.
Wisconsin – MELVIN GORDON
Great matchup this week. Only real issue is his price.
Minnesota – DAVID COBB
Comes off a bye-week and has back-2-back 30+ carry games.
Marshall – DEVON JOHNSON
Love the matchup against Middle Tennessee St and he’s been playing well recently too.
MIAMI – DUKE JOHNSON
Faces a Cincinnati team who struggles against the run.
UTEP – AARON JONES
His carries have come down but he’s an effective player who faces an Old Dominion team that has struggled against the run at times this season.
Auburn – CAMERON ARTIS-PAYNE
Not the best matchup but he’s a 20+ carry game so it doesn’t matter too much.
Georgia – NICK CHUBB
Looks like he’s the guy this week with Gurley, Marshall and Michel likely OUT this game.
West Virginia – RUSHEL SHELL
Faces a Texas Tech team who has given up 257.4 yards per game and 17 rushing TD’s to teams through 5 games.
Toledo – TERRY SWANSON
If Kareem Hunt (doubtful) misses the game, you could roll with Swanson who has proven himself over the last few games and is pretty cheap. Iowa St. is not a very good run D as well.
Hawaii – STEVEN LAKALAKA
A mid-priced option that should get plenty of touches. Has real upside if he can score a TD, but that’s been rare for him.
Colorado State – DEE HART
Not a volume guy, but makes the most of his touches usually. Faces a Nevada team that has given up 5.0 yards per carry, which plays into Hart’s big-play running style.
