Sleeper alert: Packers RB James Starks

Having trouble finding a running back during these lean times? Tell me about it. Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is going to start on one of my teams.

Finding a running back this late in the season is akin to finding a Raiders fan who does not wear spiked shoulder pads. Sure they exist, you just need to know where to look.

Torain could be next great find by Shanahan

One player I’m very intrigued by right now is Ryan Torain in Washington.

Torain looks even better now

Make your waiver claim for Redskins RB Ryan Torain right now — assuming your league still as the NFL.com default on Wednesday night. Because coach Mike Shanahan just announced that Clinton Portis is out for an expected four-to-six weeks with a groin separation.

Portis forced out by groin injury

Clinton Portis is having a productive day at Lincoln Financial Field, but in the process he’s been forced to make several trips to the trainers trable during a rough game against the Eagles.

Portis has ‘no idea’ about role with Redskins

The underperforming running game of the Redskins is surrounded by more questions than answers.

We have a Ryan Torain sighting!

Ryan Torain could see his fantasy value rise if he continues to see carries for the Redskins.

Parker, Johnson could both be on Redskins’ bubble

One of the preseason rumors surrounding the Redskins’ backfield competition is that RB Willie Parker could be in danger of not making the final roster. The latest is that fellow veteran Larry Johnson might be in the same position.

Parker buried on Redskins’ depth chart

The Redskins were one of the teams to release training camp depth charts Monday, and with it may have revealed a few hints at where things stand at several positions.

Portis tops depth chart in Redskins’ backfield

Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan says Clinton Portis will be the starting running back when training camp opens.

Broncos’ backfield could limit Moreno’s fantasy value

Knowshon Moreno will be the first rookie taken in most fantasy football drafts. But as Michael Fabiano writes, the potential for a committee situation in Denver will keep him from being this season’s Matt Forte.

Broncos pull stunner by picking Georgia RB Moreno

Biggest need or best player available? You don’t have to wonder which school of thought to which the Broncos subscribe. Already brimming with running backs, Denver made a stunning selection by drafting Georgia RB Knowshon Moreno with the No. 12 overall selection.

Fantasy spin: Broncos add RBs Arrington, Jordan

If you are thinking of picking any Broncos in your fantasy draft, just stop right now. If you thought Mike Shanahan was bad, Josh McDaniels could be even worse for fantasy leaguers.

Some perspective on Shanahan’s firing

Fantasy football fanatics no doubt cheered the firing of Broncos coach Mike Shanahan this week. Those of you who kept Ryan Torain on your roster for half of the season — and 12 fantasy points — probably felt that Pat Bowlen‘s dismissal of his long-time coach and friend was justified.

But is this disdain from fantasy footballers justified?

Broncos thin in backfield after Torain injury

Broncos rookie Peyton Hillis should be added in all fantasy leagues after the knee injury sustained by Ryan Torain.

Broncos expected to lose another RB

For the fourth time this season, Denver is expected to place a running back on injured reserve.

This time, rookie running back Ryan Torain has been lost with what is thought to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Torain will undergo more testing this weekend but the prognosis is not good.
