Division Round – RB Rankings

Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs @ Packers -

Hopefully, you watched the Giants play against the Falcons on Sunday, because Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs put together one of the better games, I’ve seen from them in years. When this duo is at its best, you can see them feeding off the others play, running tough and fighting for every last yard. This was the type of effort that has NFL experts talking about the possibility of the Giants making a Super Bowl run.

Why not, as the Packers have struggled to stop the run this year, and if the Giants defense can build off their late-season play, keeping the game close, I have all the confidence in the world in New York’s running game, to play ball control and win a close contest in Green Bay. Bradshaw is the top running back to start in this contest, as the Giants will use him in the passing game, and if this should turn into a pass heavy game, he would stay on the field. Both are respectable plays this week, but obviously beating the Packers will be no small task, so if you receive bonus points for players who advance, keep that in mind.

Stevan Ridley vs. Broncos –

In recent weeks Stevan Ridley has been the Patriots top running back, and Ridley should be the back drawing the start and leading the team in carries this week. Fellow running backs BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead have their roles in the offense and because BGE will get looks at the goal-line and Woodhead racks up most of the reception opportunities; Ridley is more valuable in ESPN leagues if you’re looking to buy low on your RB-2 as his price is four dollars and eighty cents this week.

Last week, the Steelers found success in the running game, particularly on the right side of the offensive line as Isaac Redman broke off a few big runs on his way to 121 yards on the ground on 17 carries. Ridley had success against the Broncos week fifteen with 65 yards on 11 carries, so expect New England to keep Ridley active throughout the game.
