A look at which five running backs may put up the best stats on the ground this week.

1

David Johnson - Cardinals

The Arizona running back gets a good matchup here against a 49ers team giving up a good bit of fantasy points to running backs. Johnson needs a breakout game early in the season and this looks like as good a place as any to get one. Keep an eye on the Cardinals to take advantage of a hurting San Francisco team.

2

Todd Gurley - Rams

Gurley currently ranks second only to Ezekiel Elliott in total yards, with his 338 for the season. However, he's got double the touchdowns that Zeke does this season, so far, and zero fumbles. In Week 5, Gurley is against a Seattle Seahawks team ranked No. 27 in terms of total rushing yards allowed this season.
