Wild Card Weekend DFS: Who can you trust at running back?

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is running a $1.2M fantasy football league on Sunday. First place wins $100,000. Join now!

The running back options are poopy* this week. The Seahawks have announced today that Marshawn Lynch is out. That takes one of the best options off the board. DeAngelo Williams had already been ruled out. He would be the clear best option if he were playing. That leaves Adrian Peterson as the only true #1 this week, but he is in a terrible match-up and is the most expensive at $8,400.

But you gotta play someone. I actually like Christine Michael a little bit. The Seahawks are going to try to run the ball. C Mike finally showed some of the potential everyone has been talking about last week when he ran for 102 yards against the Cardinals. He is only $6,500 on FanDuel.

I love me some Eddie Lacy, but man it is hard to trust him this year.  I do think he will be the guy the Packers lean on in the playoffs, so there is some merit to using him.  He is only $6,000.

One of the Bengals and Chiefs running backs will have a good game.  I just don't have any idea which ones it will be.

I don't hate Fitzgerald Toussaint based on the match-up, but I have not idea if he is any good or not.

*Please excuse the use of the word "poopy." I have 3 kids under the age of 7.
