So maybe for some reason last week didn't work out for you and you didn't win the million dollars. And maybe it REALLY didn't work out for you and you didn't win anything. No problem! You've got another chance to make up for it this Sunday. And if you've waited to fill your running back spot with your last pick, you've still got some options under $3800.
Bernard Pierce $3200
All you need to know about Pierce for this Sunday is that he is playing the Atlanta Falcons. While it looks like Justin Forsett has taken over starting running back duties for the Ravens, Pierce should get some meaningful work. Last week he got 15 touches. While he was only able to get 32 yards, he did score. That's likely what you're counting on here, but the good news is that the Falcons are the worst team against opposing running backs.
Jonathan Stewart $3700
Somebody has to run the ball for the Carolina Panthers right? After a few weeks off with a lingering injury (there seems to always be a lingering injury for Stewart), he looks good to go for this Sunday's game against Green Bay. The Packers are 23rd against opposing running backs and have already given up some nice stats to those RB's. The fear here is not that another running back will take over the carries from Stewart, but that Cam Newton will not only be the best quarterback for the Panthers, but also the best running back for them.
While the matchup for the Ravens is a good one, at this price range I'm more comfortable with Stewart. The Panthers and Newton look so much better when Newton runs the ball, but as long as they can get a run game going it doesn't matter if it's Newton or Stewart. The Panthers are also smart enough to not run their QB into the ground if they don't have to. When Stewart is healthy he is a good running back that can do some positive things. Get him in your lineup and get a weeks worth of use out of him.
