Tier 3 welcomes back Ray Rice, and says hello to Knownshon Moreno this week. The Ravens claim they need Rice to get more touches, which is reflected in his rankings this week. Moreno has separated himself as the number one back on a team that no one can stop from scoring.
Tier 4 and 5 are interesting this week. CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson continue to be ranked closely, Spiller winning out slightly this week. Eddie Lacy, DeAngelo Williams, Giovani Bernard and Le'Veon Bell have surpassed both Chris Johnson and Maurice Jones-Drew, who have been nothing but disappointing so far but still have a chance at producing RB2 numbers.
The drop off into Tier 6 is big. BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Joique Bell are second strings on their team, Stevan Ridley has yet to prove himself this year, and Zac Stacey is currently too much of an unknown.
