Bryce Brown, RB Phi – Brown is likely going to get the starting nod this week against Dallas as LeSean McCoy has not been cleared to practice this week. Brown ran for 178 yards and two scores Monday night as he tore up a porous Panthers’ run defense. He did fumble twice and ball security is always an issue with rookies being grated playing time, but he should continue to receive the lion’s share of touches this week. If he’s still available, consider him a RB2 or flex option this week against the Cowboys.
David Wilson, RB NYG – Fellow running back Andre Brown has been placed on IR and Wilson will step up as the number two back behind the injury prone Ahmad Bradshaw. Added coach Tom Coughlin, “It’s his time.” The rookie first round pick has struggled to remain consistent this season when spelling Bradshaw, as turnovers have limited his opportunities. He should see 10-12 touches a game and his a home run threat with the ball in space. If you have roster space or need a handcuff for Bradshaw going into the fantasy playoffs, he’s worth a look.
Colin Kaepernick, QB SF – Head coach Jim Harbaugh announced Wednesday that Kapernick will start again this Sunday against the Rams. This is a great matchup for the dual threat QB as the Rams have allowed 14 rushing touchdowns and 13 passing touchdowns on the season. After beating both the Bears and Saints, look for Harbaugh to stick with the hot hand moving forward. The 49ers have favorable matchups against the Dolphins (week 14), Patriots (week 15), and Cardinals (week 17) remaining on their schedule.
Knowshon Moreno, RB Den – Inactive since week two, Moreno got the unexpected start over Ronnie Hillman Sunday against the Chiefs. He carried the rock 20 times for 85 yards and the starting job looks to be his to lose. As always, the backfield is crowded in Denver with Hillman and Lance Ball stealing touches, but consider Moreno a decent flex play this week or a low end RB2 in deeper formats.Tags: Ahmad Bradshaw, Andre Brown, Bryce Brown, Colin Kaepernick, David Wilson, Fantasy Football, Jim Harbaugh, Knowshon Moreno, Lance Ball, LeSean McCoy, NFL, Ronnie Hillman
