2012 Fantasy Football Running Back Projections
August 28, 2012 | Jeff
08/28 Update: Tons of running back updates below, including…you guessed it…the Redskins!
Maurice Jones-Drew: MJD is still holding out, and Rashad Jennings has been named the week 1 starter whether MJD is back or not. I am not willing to completely dump MJD’s projection yet, but both his and Jennings’ numbers were slightly adjusted.
Green Bay Packers: James Starks is done. Finished. Starks is still battling turf toe, and now has Cedric Benson in town in addition to Alex Green. Don’t count on a single thing from Starks, as it appears that Benson will get the bulk of Green Bay’s carries. All three backs received adjustments. It was a good run James…
Pittsburgh Steelers: Dinged Redman a bit more this time around. I am getting less excited about him by the minute. Dwyer rises slightly.
Stevan Ridley: Ridley has looked great this preseason while Vereen has not. Ridley is rising, so go get him!
Washington Redskins: Alfred Morris is now the lead back in Washington. Trust me, I am more sick of this than you. 1a) Morris 1b) Royster 2) Helu Outhouse) Hightower
Vick Ballard: Looks like Ballard may be creeping in on Donald Brown and Delone Carter in Indy. Nothing too fancy, but he enters the table below.
More updates to come…
