Jordan Howard won’t play. Miles Sanders will get the lead role again with Boston Scott mixing in against Washington.
Josh Jacobs plans to play against the jaguars. If he does, he’s still a start against their awful run defense even though he won’t be 100 percent.
Derrick Henry didn’t practice this week but Henry and his coach says he will play. Dion Lewis would get the start if Henry ends up being unable to go.
James Conner appears ready to return this week but he might not be in store for his usual workload, as his shoulder injury is more of a pain management problem at this point and they may try to use him selectively. Benny Snell should continue to see work but the situation is extremely tough for fantasy.
Alexander Mattison is out. Mike Boone will get the majority of his work behind Dalvin Cook.
Bo Scarbrough doesn’t look likely to play with the Lions calling up Wes Hills. This is a situation to avoid completely.
Week 15 is here and that means playoffs. PLAYOFFS? Yes, playoffs. There aren’t a ton of smash plays this week, so you’ll likely need to ride the studs that brought you here. Let’s check them out.
Derrius Guice was put on I.R once again. Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson will take over.
James Conner is expected to practice this week but there is no guarantee he will play.
Derrick Henry will continue to have his snaps managed, but he still saw 18 touches for 103 yards and two touchdowns with his snaps at a season-low.
RB Ranking Tiers
Christian McCaffrey has had down games for him the last two weeks but continues to see good usage and Seattle isn’t an imposing draw.
Chris Carson will be the focal point in a good matchup with the Panthers this week.
Phillip Lindsay faces a poor run defense in Kansas City and should continue to see the bulk of the snaps.
If Josh Jacobs can’t play this week, DeAndre Washington looked good in relief and gets a better matchup this week against the Jaguars.
Raheem Mostert isn’t getting huge touches but he leads the 49ers committee and has put up huge numbers on his touches. He should keep his lead job against Atlanta.
