Charcandrick West
Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West rushes past the Tennessee Titans defense in 2015."

Darren McFadden (Dallas Cowboys): With the return of Tony Romo, Darren McFadden may be in for one of his biggest games yet. Romo will force this defense to protect against the pass and deep throws allowing McFadden more room to run. Instead of defenses stacking the box against McFadden they will have to stay honest and player different coverage's. McFadden should have one of his best games as the Dolphins have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs all season.

Marshawn Lynch (Seattle Seahawks): San Francisco has given up the 7th most fantasy points to running backs all season long and it doesn't hurt that Lynch had them for lunch the last time these two teams went toe to toe. The last time these two teams played Lynch had his best game of the season so fireworks again would not be surprising. Lynch ran for 122 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries in week 7 against the 49ers so expect a similar plan of attack. Lynch could be in for his second big game of the season.

Charcandrick West (Kansas City Chiefs): The Chargers have given up the most fantasy points to running backs in 2015 and they are facing a red hot Charcandrick West. He has averaged over 20 carries for the last 3 games and has seen the end zone in each. West should be a threat on the ground and catching the ball out of the backfield making him an extremely difficult player for the Chargers to cover. West is a high end RB1 this week.

Devonta Freeman (Atlanta Falcons): A friendly matchup for an offense that is looking to get back on track. The last game Freeman played in he only had 12 rushing yards and the same amount of carries. He has not had 12 rushing attempts since week 2 so expect Dan Quinn to get the Falcons back to running the football heavily.
