Forte, McFadden, Mendenhall. Mostly because Ronnie is the only one splitting carries. Baltimore is soft against the run so far this year, and New Jersey A is soft on passing RBs. I worry a bit about a letdown for Chicago on the short week though.

I wouldn't characterize Baltimore as soft against the run just quite yet, but I more or less agree. There are concerns for all four:

Forte hasn't been great running the ball and has gotten most of his value in the passing game.

McFadden may not get many touches if the Raiders are in a big hole early vs. Texans.

Mendenhall faces a historically tough Baltimore run D.

Ronnie Brown is splitting carries and also playing against an explosive offense.
