A lot of awesome running backs in the AFC West

Take a moment to consider who will be the probable running backs for the AFC West teams this weekend. Darren McFadden, Thomas Jones, Laurence Maroney and Mike Tolbert. Somebody please explain to me why Jamaal Charles is sitting on the bench?

Oh that’s right, Chiefs coach Todd Haley hates your fantasy team.

Dave Dameshek, Michelle Beisner and I will be along later to grouse about Charles, but otherwise there is some slim pickings among the AFC West backs. As evidenced by the fact that Michael Fabiano was scurrying to pick up Maroney for his 10 fantasy teams while the rest of us were hard at work in the studio.

The news continues to get worse in San Diego as Tolbert figures to start this week, especially after Ryan Mathews was withheld from practice on Friday according to the San Diego Union-Tribune (via Twitter). Unfortunately, he has likely been picked clean off the waiver wire by now.

Oh well, I suppose it will be fun starting BenJarvus Green-Ellis this week.
