NFL Week 10 Running Back Sit/Start Report


Mark Ingram should put up impressive numbers against a faltering Redskins run defense

Start – Mark Ingram:  There was plenty of talk a few weeks ago that Mark Ingram’s great season would start to fizzle out during the second half of the season. He did stumble last week against a pillow soft Titans run defense, but should have a big bounce back game against a Redskins team that specializes in allowing backs to soar past the 100-yard mark. New Orleans has a soft schedule up ahead and Ingram should be able to cash in.

Start – Lamar Miller:  There is a great deal of fear and trepidation for Lamar Miller owners as Miami travels to Philadelphia to take on a rugged Eagles run defense. I believe these fears are unwarranted and that Miller will not only find the end zone but rack up some nice RB1 yardage as well. His only clunker since the bye week was against the Patriots who jumped out to a HUGE lead and limited his usage. Start him with confidence against Eagles.

Sit – Chris Johnson:  There’s been no shortage of rushing attempts for Chris Johnson this season, but what’s he’s accomplished with these opportunities has been all over the board. But one thing has remained consistent, when he faces a stout run defense – he goes NOWHERE. The Cardinals will be in Seattle Sunday Night to face a stifling Seahawks run defense that will leave Johnson running in place. Don’t let the 109 yards he gained last week against the Browns fool you, he never found the end zone and fumbled twice. He is NOT a good option for Week 10.

Sit – Jonathan Stewart:  Like Chris Johnson, Jonathan Stewart is seeing a monster workload averaging 22 carries per game over the course of the Panthers last four weeks. But he’s had only mixed results like last week against the Packers when he managed only 66 yards on 20 attempts and no touchdowns. Carolina is on the road this week to face a stout Titans run defense. Stewart will get the carries, but unless he finds a way into the end zone, fantasy owners will be disappointed with him at the end of the day.
