This may be the final game of Marshawn's career, and while the Chargers have been hot lately, they still can't defend the run. He should see 20+, maybe even 25+ touches again this week so he is a fringe RB1.

The Chargers are just 20th against fantasy running backs, Lynch will close the season as a mid-tier RB2. 
Mike Tagliere

 This is one where I'm going to have to bite the bullet, as Henry didn't get the role I expected him to against the 49ers last week. Instead, the Titans decided to ride their 29-year-old running back, giving him 19 touches, which was more than double Henry's touch count. They appear content with mediocrity, so why should we assume it changes now? The Rams have been a matchup to target most of the year, though volume has been hard to come by, as three of their last four opponents ran the ball 20 or fewer times, so it's not shocking to see they're in the top-12 for fewest rushing attempts allowed. They have allowed a massive 4.61 yards per attempt on the year (third-most) with 11 touchdowns (seventh-most), so the hope is there for both Titans running backs.
