Marshawn Lynch. Knowshon Moreno. Frank Gore. LeGarrette Blount.
All are star running backs that carry the rock and make their teams roll! Some say the NFL has turned into a passing league but it's no coincidence that all four teams in Sunday's Conference Championship games have powerful running games.
Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks
Lynch went full “beast mode” last week, tallying 26 fantasy points and franchise playoff record 140 yards rushing and two TDs. During the regular season Lynch rushed for 1,257 yards and scored 14 TDs.
Knowshon Moreno – Denver Broncos
Moreno helps keep opposing defenses guessing as they contend with the Broncos potent passing attack. He scored 15 fantasy points last week and rushed for 1,038 yards and 13 TDs during the regular season.
Frank Gore – San Francisco 49ers
Gore garnered eight hard-fought fantasy points against the tough Panthers defense last week and he will be relied on heavily as the 49ers face their division rival Seattle Seahawks. His regular season totals were 1,128 yards rushing and 9 TDs.
LeGarrette Blount – New England Patriots
Blount burst onto the playoff scene last week, rushing for 166 yards and four TDs while on his way to a whopping 40 fantasy points!
So, now all you have to do is choose one of these guys for your playoff fantasy football team. Who's it going to be???
