Finding a good "sleeper" usually means fantasy football owners doing a little research and watching the NFL injury report. For owners looking for a little help with roster decisions this weekend, here is a look at the top sleepers at running back.
Alfred Morris entered the year as a sixth round rookie just looking to make the Washington Redskins roster. Last week the youngster carried the ball 28 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns and if Mike Shanahan can be trusted, Morris should remain the starter for at least this week's game against St Louis.
The Kansas City Chiefs added Peyton Hillis this off-season for insurance and goal-line scoring opportunities. Last week the Chiefs fell behind early and abandoned the run, but this week against Buffalo the game should be closer and Hillis could finally get some touches and possibly a touchdown.
This week is make or break for several NFL running backs and another poor performance could see them riding the pine on their team and in fantasy football leagues, but players like Chris Johnson and LeSean McCoy should bounce back nicely and score some good points for owners.
