Running back

Start: Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers (at Denver): If I have any Packers on my roster, I am playing them this week. The Broncos have been that bad. Jones has had a rough beginning to this season, rushing for just 59 yards to this point. But this is the spot for him to get things going in the right direction against the worst run defense in football.

Brian Robinson, Washington Commanders (at N.Y. Giants): The Giants are the second-to-last run defense in the league and Robinson still gets the majority of the rushing work in Washington. He's an easy plug and play here.

Sit: Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts (vs. Cleveland): The Colts have brought Taylor along slowly since he finally took the field this season two weeks ago, and he has just 37 yards rushing on 14 carries in two games. Don't look for that train to get rolling against this defense.

Sit: Arizona RBs (at Seattle): Last week, Emari Demercado and Keaontay Ingram were two of the top names on the waiver wire, but both will struggle to do much against this Seahawks defense on the road.

Sleeper: Jaleel McLaughlin, Denver Broncos (vs. Green Bay): Though he was undrafted, McLaughlin has been the most productive player on offense for the Broncos this season. If you need a player in a pinch, this is a good name to remember for the rest of the year.

Bust: Saquon Barkley, New York Giants (vs. Washington): Aside from two late runs on Sunday night against Buffalo, Barkley was held in check and that will likely continue to be the norm as this Giants offense is just in shambles and the offensive line is the main reason for that.
