Stop us if you’ve heard this one before — Peyton Hillis is practicing and hoping for the bulk of Cleveland’s rushing attempts this week. Hillis sat out last week’s game against Seattle while Montario Hardesty picked up 33 carries for 95 yards. This has been one of the more confounding fantasy backfields this season because when Hillis has either been out (strep throat, hamstring) or he’s underperformed (averaging 9.7 fantasy points per game). So should you ride with Hillis or Hardesty this week against San Francisco? Actually, neither… if you can help it. The 49ers have allowed the fewest points per game to fantasy running backs. If you have any other viable options this week, leave the Browns bunch alone.
