Fantasy Football: Ask Athlon Week 1

Beware of RBs that face Pittsburgh and the Jets on multiple occasions

Never bench your studs. Yeah, right. Just because you drafted a running back in the first round, don't think you can just set him in the starting lineup and not have to worry about him falling on his face.

Case in point is Week 1 and Baltimore's Ray Rice. If you're in a non-PPR sit him. If you're in a league without a flex position, sit him. And if you're in a PPR league with a flex position, really consider going somewhere else this week if you have better options/matchups.

Fantasy Football Running Backs: Workload Watch

Which backs have collected the most touches the last few seasons?

Athlon Sports takes a look at which running backs have touched the ball the most per game over the last three years and over the last two years. This gives you an idea of both which backs have been given the most opportunities, while at the same time lets you know which backs might be wearing down.

It's interesting to note that Arian Foster, having played just one full season, already ranks eighth in touches per game in both charts.

St. Louis Rams 2011 NFL Team Preview

We look at the Rams chances of making the playoffs this year.
<p> We look at the Rams chances of making the playoffs this year.</p>

The Rams haven’t had a winning season since 2003, and haven’t made the playoffs since 2004, when they squeaked in as an 8–8 wild card. Is this the year the team finally gets over the hump? In a still-weak NFC West, 9–7 almost surely wins the division; even 8–8 might do. Heck, Seattle became the first 7–9 division champion in NFL history a year ago.
