I'm in a couple PPR leagues who foolishly relied on Ronnie Hillman, expecting big numbers from him in place of Willis McGahee, but got next to nothing thanks to Knowshon Moreno. How would you rank the following RBs for not just this coming week, but for the rest of the season too up to week 16? In parenthesis is the opposing defense's rank in terms of points allowed to the running back position (1st being most points allowed, 32nd being least allowed).
- Knowshon Moreno (Den): Week 13: vs TB (12th), 14: @ Oak (1st), 15: @ Bal (15th), 16: vs Cle (8th)
- Marcel Reece (Oak): vs Cle (8th), vs Den (17th), vs KC (9th), @ Car (5th)
- Michael Bush (Chi): vs Sea (24th), @ Min (16th), vs GB (23rd), @ Ari (27th)
- Jonathan Stewart (Car): @ KC (9th), vs Atl (14th), @ SD (13th), vs Oak (1st)
- Rashad Jennings (Jac): @ Buf (6th), vs NYJ (18th), @ Mia (26th), vs NE (11th)

Moreno, Bush, Reece, then the rest. Moreno is going to continue to start, even if he runs poorly due to the fact they trust him the most in pass blocking. I was just as shocked as everyone else when Hillman still had the same tiny offensive role, but it does make sense. Gotta keep Peyton upright and if Moreno is the best back for that task then so be it. Bush is a goal line beast but a clear second RB when Forte is healthy. If Forte sits the rest of the year I would move Bush to number 1 out of these backs. Reece has been serviceable and will still have a role as the fullback when DMC comes back. If he continues to suck they might let Reece finish out as the starter to keep DMC healthy.
I think u have to put Moreno at 1 because hes got most upside as long term starter in Denver, Hillman obviously isnt challenging him yet. DMC and Forte are both injured so i think u rank reece 2nd then bush 3rd. i wouldnt start jennings or stewart for any reason

i choose the season off matchups
i choose the season and week 13 off of this:
overall skill is better as a RB reece has only been good a couple weeks as he starts since mcfadden has been out and he is coming back. As for stewart i just hate their line although watching him now he had a couple good runs. I dont think moreno has much skill compared to the others overall.......
