Zach Charbonnet, RB (Seattle Seahawks)

Zach Charbonnet was one of the running backs I mentioned that was worth stashing on your bench ahead of Week 11. If Kenneth Walker III were to suffer an injury, Charbonnet would be in line for a big workload in the Seahawks offense.

Unfortunately, it appears that might be the case as Walker left the game against the Rams with an oblique injury. After the game, Pete Carroll described the injury as "legit" and with the Seahawks playing on Thursday night, it would appear there is a good chance he misses the game this week.

Charbonnet had a career high 15 carries against the Rams and was able to pick up 47 rushing ayrds. He also was a big part of the passing game with six receptions and this will be a big boost in PPR leagues.

The matchup is not great as the Seahawks play a tough 49ers defense but he is probably an RB2 based strictly on the expected workload he would get if Walker misses this week.
