Justin: Danny Woodhead, RB, San Diego Chargers
Woodhead has not been the recipient of too many carries this season. Ryan Mathews still gets the bulk of the early-down workload. But on third downs, its all Woodhead. The former Patriot currently ranks 3rd among running backs in receptions with 17. Philip Rivers enjoys dumping it down to Woodhead. The small, elusive back has racked up almost half of his yardage after making the catch. He should see plenty of opportunities to catch passes against the Cowboys, who currently rank 22nd in the league at defending the pass.
David: Brian Hartline @ New Orleans Saints
While Mike Wallace gets all of the attention from defenses, Hartline quietly leads the team with 28 targets. Second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill is progressing immensely, gaining confidence in both his arm and ability to win close games. The Saints will score plenty of points at home, forcing the Dolphins to air it out. Look for Hartline to have plenty of targets in a true barn-burner of a game.
Matt: Matt Forte, RB, Chicago Bears
Forte has averaged five receptions per game against the Detroit Lions over his career and is tied with Jamaal Charles for the NFL lead among running backs with 18 receptions. Look for Forte to be a beast just like he’s been all season so far.
