Week 1 RB Recap

Justin Forsett was explosive for the Ravens in week one against the Bengals. Bernard Pierce had 6 carries for 14 yards and 1 fumble lost while Forsett had 11 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown. Forsett also had 5 receptions on 6 targets. Ray Rice will be out another week and it will be interesting to see how Baltimore uses Forsett Thursday night against the Steelers.

Knowshon Moreno carried the rock 24 times for 134 yards and a touchdown. He is available in up to 4% of fantasy leagues. Lamar Miller is more widely available in the 4-12% range. Miller carried the ball 11 times and had 4 receptions with a touchdown. In total, Lamar Miller had 15 touches for 78 yards. He is a factor at this point.

Shonn Greene led the Titans with 15 carries. Dexter McCluster had 9 and Bishop Sankey had 6 totes. Greene had a solid 71 rushing yards on those 15 carries although he was not targeted in the passing game. Shonn is available in 10-45% of fantasy leagues. He should be owned and is a RB3/Flex option at this point. He does have the weak Dallas D at home in week two.
