QB | Jay Cutler | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
The Chicago Bears had success with designed rollouts in Week 1, and they likely will continue to move QB Jay Cutler out of the pocket when warranted, according to ChicagoBears.com. "It's game-by-game," Cutler said. "It just depends what the ends are doing; if they're getting up field or if they're crashing down. A lot of that is going to play in to if we can move the pocket or not." The Bears figure it's more difficult for opposing defensive linemen to rush the quarterback when they don't know where Cutler will be when he sets up to throw.

QB | Joe Flacco | Baltimore Ravens | Fantasy
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco must continue to work on his mechanics, according to Mike Preston, of The Baltimore Sun.

Running Back

RB | Adrian Peterson | Minnesota Vikings | Fantasy
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson expects to have more than the 19 total touches he had in Week 1, according to Tom Pelissero, of 1500ESPN.com. In fact, Peterson added he'd be happy with 40 to 50 carries a game. "Yeah, about 40 or 50 carries, that would be lovely," Peterson said. "I would love that ... I definitely know we are going to come out running the ball and establish the run. As for the offense, that's something that we, in our minds, want to do. We'll see how the games playing and if they call my number I'll be ready to carry the load."

RB | Jerome Harrison | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Cleveland Browns RB Jerome Harrison is looking for more carries in Week 2, according to Tony Grossi, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Harrison carried the ball nine times for 52 yards against in Week 1. "I can only control what I can control," Harrison said. "I'm a player, not the coach. If I was coaching, I'd give myself the ball damn near every play. Because I believe in myself like that ... All I can do is hope things change. If I feel like I need to say something, I will, if it gets to that point. But I'm hoping it never does." Head coach Eric Mangini said that Harrison and FB Peyton Hillis will continue to share the rushing load. Ideally, Harrison would like 20 to 30 carries a game. "Twenty carries allows you to get in a rhythm and get a feel for a defense," Harrison said. "Most big runs come later on after you've got a good feel and figure out what they're doing."

RB | Toby Gerhart | Minnesota Vikings | Injury
Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart (knee) will play in Week 2, according to head coach Brad Childress, report Jeremy Fowler and Brian Murphy, of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

RB | Chester Taylor | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
The Chicago Bears have been happy so far with the play of RB Chester Taylor, who has served as a perfect complement to RB Matt Forte, according to ChicagoBears.com. Taylor generated 73 yards on 12 touches (nine rushes and three receptions) in Week 1. "We had a chance to play against Chester a lot of years and really looked up to his football game," head coach Lovie Smith said. "We felt like he could give us what he's given us. Exactly what we thought he would be, we've seen, whether it's in pass protection or catching the ball out of the backfield."

RB | Laurence Maroney | Denver Broncos | Injury, Fantasy
Denver Broncos RB Laurence Maroney (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 16, reports Danny O'Neil, of The Seattle Times.

RB | Brandon Jackson | Green Bay Packers | Fantasy
Green Bay Packers RB Brandon Jackson said he has been preparing to be the team's starting running back for the last three years, reports Greg A. Bedard, of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I'm ready," Jackson said. Jackson was the starter for the first three games of the 2007 season before a shin injury sidelined him and opened the door for RB Ryan Grant to seize hold of the starter's job and never let go. Head coach Mike McCarthy said the team is going to move on and continue to run their offense the way they typically do. McCarthy noted losing Grant (ankle) hasn't made their job any more difficult, but he believes it is important to use his players to their skill set.

RB | Frank Gore | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy
In four career Monday night games, San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore has rushed for 393 yards and two touchdowns, reports SF49ers.com. Gore said the games get him hyped up and excited. "You get a chance to show everybody in the world how good of a player you are," Gore said.

RB | Jahvid Best | Detroit Lions | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Lions rookie RB Jahvid Best (toe) practiced in full for a second consecutive day Thursday, Sept. 16.

RB | Leon Washington | Seattle Seahawks | Fantasy
The Seattle Seahawks did not have much of a running game during Week 1, managing just 77 yards on the ground, reports Danny O'Neil, of The Seattle Times. The majority of that came after the game was in hand late, as the Seahawks had just 10 yards rushing five minutes into the second half. RB Leon Washington said it is tough to put the blame on one specific area, saying sometimes the backs have missed their reads, other the offensive line, receivers and tight ends haven't done their job the best they could. He noted they have to collectively do their jobs in order for the team to have a good running game.

RB | Marshawn Lynch | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Buffalo Bills RB Marshawn Lynch said he is not worried about the trade rumors because there is nothing he can do if the team does want to trade him, reports Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com. "No, because if it's going to happen then it's going to happen," Lynch said. "What will I be able to do about it? If they say I've got to go then what am I going to do, tell them no? If they say I'm going to stay, I'm here, if they say I'm not going nowhere then let's continue to build on this thing and get better."

RB | Fred Taylor | New England Patriots | Injury, Fantasy

RB | LeGarrette Blount | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Fantasy
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers feel RB LeGarrette Blount needs more time to learn their system, reports Stephen Holder, of The St. Petersburg Times. The offense is quite different than ones he has played in previously, and he does not come from a system that used similar terminology. As a result, the Bucs are going to give Blount more time to learn before they insert him into their offense. The team feels he can give their offense a different dimension eventually due to his physical running style. He could start to be worked in following the team's Week 4 bye.

RB | Kregg Lumpkin | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Depth Chart Tidbit
Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Greg Olson indicated the team may start involving backup RB Kregg Lumpkin in their game plan as early as Week 2, reports Stephen Holder, of The St. Petersburg Times. The Buccaneers have a lot of options in their backfield, so the coaching staff will have to determine how they want to move forward with sharing the football amongst the backs.

RB | C.J. Spiller | Buffalo Bills | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
Continuing an ongoing storyline, Buffalo Bills RB Marshawn Lynch remains in the picture in Buffalo despite tons of speculation that he could be traded to another team, reports Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com. The Bills have remained steadfast in their comments that they want Lynch on roster, and head coach Chan Gailey reiterated Wednesday, Sept. 15, that he wants to keep Lynch, Fred Jackson and rookie C.J. Spiller.

WR | Devin Hester | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
Chicago Bears WR Devin Hester caught only one pass in Week 1 because he faced double-coverage for most of the game, according to wide receivers coach Darryl Drake, reports Jeff Dickerson, of ESPNChicago.com. "There were some times he wasn't open," Drake said. "They had bracket coverage over there a lot of the times to take him away. They would also roll a corner up on him with a safety. If that happens, you are going to go to the other side. That's why D.A. (WR Devin Aromashodu) had so many opportunities coming to him, because he had one-on-one matchups. Devin, a couple times, may have been a step off from where he needed to be. That's being in those proper spots. We''ll get better at it and a lot of it too was probably some of me. They played some different looks that they have not shown, (and) I got to do a better job coaching and preparing them versus every look you can possibly see."

Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team really does not know if Harvin will be available for Week 2, calling it a wait and see situation.

WR | Brandon Lloyd | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
