In fantasy football, running backs are still king, especially as we head into December (unless of course global warming keeps those winter temps up).

There are 5 teams that have allowed double digit rushing touchdowns: Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders, and the St. Louis Rams. This means Shonn Greene, Steven Jackson, Jamaal Charles, and at least one New Orleans Saints running back has a good chance of scoring this weekend.

Look deeper and you’ll notice that the following teams have given up 9 rushing touchdowns thus far: Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, and the Atlanta Falcons.

More good matchups for the likes of Stevan Ridley, La’Rod Stephens-Howling, and again take your pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers roulette of running backs.
