Sorry for no RBs picks last week … but I think this might make up for it. There are some GREAT plays this week, I really don’t think you can go wrong in some of these spots. I’ve got a mix of the high-priced running backs, and I’ve slipped in a few that should be below average price, so if you need to save some money with upside we’ve got those guys too.
Here are week 14 QB Picks if you need them.
And here are the WR Picks for this week too.
Bishop Sankey vs Washington State
Pretty good matchup for Sankey coming off a week where he had 3 TDs. A consistent 20+ carry guy.
Ka’Deem Carey at Arizona State
Okay, so we thought he had a tough matchup last week (against Oregon) and he BEASTED. This week, AZ State is a huge rivalry game, so the kids should be a bit nervous to start. Their run D isn’t all that bad, and they’ve faced some decent teams. Carey’s team is a 10 point dog in this one.
Andre Williams at Syracuse
With all the Heisman rumors swirling around this guy, you have to expect the coach will give him every opportunity in this game & feed him the ball since the trophy would do more for BC recruiting than Williams’ NFL draft stock. Syracuse is a decent run D, and this is basically a pick-em game in Vegas.
Tevin Coleman vs Purdue
This is BUTTER if he can play. Purdue sucks against the run. You’ll want to dig around on twitter or google to see if he’s playing … he’s been out a few weeks. You could even risk playing Stephen Houston … who’s done well against sorry teams if Coleman is out.
Charles Sims vs Iowa State
A GREAT matchup here … Iowa State is one of the worst run Ds in all of College football … How bad? 31 TDs in 11 weeks bad. WV is only a 7 point favorite and the O/U is 54. I bet lots of grinders have Sims in because he’s a mid-priced guy with huge upside based on this matchup.
Marion Grice vs Arizona
AZ is an ok run defense, that has held teams out of the endzone on the ground most of the year. Only has 2 TDs in the last 4 weeks, and they were both in the same game. His reception totals do help in PPR leagues and he had 7 last week.
Todd Gurley at Georgia Tech
Interesting matchup here, Gurley’s QB is now done … and GT actually has a decent run defense. They should be trying to run most of the game so he should get looks. Essentially a pick-em Vegas game with a 57 O/U.
De’Anthony Thomas vs Oregon State
With Byron Marshall possibly out, or at least limited in this game, Thomas might see a fuller work load against a team that isn’t all that great at stopping the run. Another mid-priced option with upside.
Javorius Allen vs UCLA
Faces off against a cross-town rival that isn’t all that great at stopping the run, but they’ve seen some of the better RBs this season in Westwood. Should be a close game, Allen will be a big part of what USC does if they want to win. Has 10 TDs in the last 4 weeks.
James White vs Penn State
Has 9 games in a row with at least 1 TD. His team is a 24 point favorite which is kinda cupcake given that this week has many close rivalry matchups. Penn State is ok against the run.
Tyler Gaffney vs Notre Dame
I’m not really sure how I feel about Gaffney this week, he has scored 8 weeks in a row, but kinda got put on ice while the QB put on a show last week. I think the Cardinal will get back to the run this week though NDs not the best run D.
Jeremy Langford vs Minnesota
The Vegas O/U is only 40.5 in this one and Langford’s team is a 14 point favorite. The O/U has me a little concerned but Langford has been doing well and Minnesota is only an OK run D that can give yards up in chunks.
Carlos Hyde at Michigan
Goes into the big house and his team is a 16 point favorite. Michigan is a pretty good run D, and they’ve only given up 9 TDs all season. Hyde has been doing well the last 2 games.
Henry Josey vs Texas A&M
Faces one of the worst run Ds in college football this week and Josey is hot, with 5 TDs over the last 2 weeks. He’s going to be a low priced guy with upside based on the matchup this week.
Terry Baggett at Hawaii
Goes against a really sucky run D, and he’s torched those types of teams. Could be a high-risk/high-reward type play this week. He’s had a game with 300+ rushing yards already this season.
