What to do at running back in DFS?

It is amazing how hard it has been to pick a running back on FanDuel in the playoffs. Last week was impossible. This week is a little better because David Johnson is playing. He is pretty much a must play, even at the $8,500 price tag, but where do you go after that?

Marshawn Lynch is the contrarian play. People will be scared away from him because he is expensive, $7,800, coming off an injury and facing a tough match-up against the Panthers. He is obviously very talented, and you can get him at low ownership.

The guy I like is Fitzgerald Toussaint. He is only $6,200 and will benefit from Antonio Brown missing the game and Ben Roethlisberger being limited with a sore shoulder.

It is a crap shoot after that. Ronnie Hillman at $5,900 is a guy that has some upside because he is effective in the passing game.
