Running Backs

Start: Kyren Williams, Los Angeles Rams (at Cincinnati): With the Rams trading Akers away, there isn't much in the way of Williams getting a ton of work the rest of the way this year. He may not be the most dynamic option, but he's going to get opportunities and with a chance to touch the ball around 20 times a game, I'd be starting him unless I had exceptional options.

Start: D'Andre Swift, Philadelphia Eagles (at Tampa Bay): I know that being a Swift owner has likely been frustrating, but his time may be here. And as good as he was last week, I don't know how you could keep him on your bench.

Sit: Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers (at Las Vegas): It's hard to sit a guy with Harris' talent, but this Steelers offense is not one he is currently thriving in. In two games, his numbers are just depressing. He has seen just 16 carries and rushed for 74 yards on the year. He also has just three receptions for two yards. Until the Steelers start to make him more of a focal point, it's hard to play him.

Javonte Williams, Denver Broncos (at Miami): It's been good to see Williams back on the field after tearing his ACL last year, but this Broncos offense is one that is not putting up big numbers on the ground. In two games, Williams has 96 yards rushing and is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry. In a game that could turn into a shootout against Miami, Samaje Perine as a receiver may actually be the best Broncos RB this week.

Sleeper Alert: Josh Kelley, Los Angeles Chargers (at Minnesota): You'll have to monitor the status of Austin Ekeler, but it certainly seems that he is trending toward missing another game. The Vikings allowed Swift to gain 170 yards on the ground last week and Kelley could be the next guy to carve up their defense.

Bust Alert: James Conner, Arizona Cardinals (vs. Dallas): Conner has 168 yards rushing in two games and will get the lion's share of the workload pretty much all season for this Cardinals team. But this Cowboys defense is different. Temper your expectations of Conner in this one.
