4. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Eddie Lacy is averaging 91.2 total yards and has scored a touchdown in five of his past seven games. He had a rough Thanksgiving but should bounce back against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have allowed 135.4 yards and 0.9 touchdowns per game.
5. DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys
DeMarco Murray is coming off a three-touchdown performance on Thanksgiving. He had extra time to rest up before facing the Chicago Bears. The Bears rank dead last in the NFL with 153.6 rushing yards allowed per game. They have also allowed 1.3 rushing touchdowns per game.
6. Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
Marshawn Lynch has a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, but he had 135 total yards and three touchdowns in the last meeting with them.

Ben Tate bounced back from a horrible performance with 102 yards and three touchdowns against the New England Patriots. He should have another strong showing against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags have allowed 130.4 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game.
9. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
LeSean McCoy is averaging 126.9 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He’s facing the Detroit Lions. The Lions are strong against the run, but Shady is a dual threat.
10. Reggie Bush, Detroit Lions
Reggie Bush is averaging 118.4 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game. He should be a force against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have allowed 115.5 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game.

Maurice Jones-Drew is averaging 84 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his past eight games. He faces the Houston Texans. The Texans have allowed 116 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game.
16. Ray Rice, Baltimore Ravens
Ray Rice just can’t get on track this year. He should be able to get the job done against the Minnesota Vikings, though. The Vikes have allowed 120.6 yards and 1.1 touchdowns per game.
17. Zac Stacy, St. Louis Rams
Zac Stacy is averaging 99.8 total yards and 0.5 touchdowns in his past eight games. He’s facing the Arizona Cardinals. The Cards have allowed just 83.3 yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game.
18. Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati Bengals
Giovani Bernard is averaging 72.9 total yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He should light up the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have yielded 128.6 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game.
19. Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans
Chris Johnson is averaging 86.8 total yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He’s facing the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have allowed 0.9 touchdowns per game. I expect Johnson to be active in the passing game in this one.
20. C.J. Spiller, Buffalo Bills
C.J. Spiller busted out last week against the Atlanta Falcons. He has a much more difficult matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but he is capable of a big game. The Bucs have allowed 106.8 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game.
