    Although it should have happened about a month and a half ago, Tre Mason will finally rise above the 60-percent threshold this week. Bout time. What’s wrong with people?… Some may be surprised to see Latavius Murray so low in the Week 13 waiver wire POWER RANKS but I assure you, there’s good reason. And it’s not just the concussion he suffered Thursday night, that shouldn’t hinder his status Sunday in Houston with a full 10 days to heal. No, it’s partly about his remaining schedule: at STL, vs SF, at KC and vs BUF; the Niners and Bills rank inside the Top 10 in rush DVOA for the season, making up two-thirds of Murray’s playoff matchups. Plus, while it did seem like Oakland would have given him more carries had he not been forced from the game, Thursday night was only the second time all season Raiders RBs breached 20 carries as a unit. He’s worth an add, no doubt, but thinking he’s a savior to your Fantasy roster is foolish… Now, Dan “BOOM BABY BOOM” Herron, he looks like he’ll produce around 80-percent of what Ahmad Bradshaw was providing on a week-to-week basis. Herron out gained Trent Richardson on the ground (not a huge accomplishment) and was utilized far more in the passing game, seeing five targets to T Rich’s one. Expect low end RB2 production from Herron the rest of the season in PPR formats… No idea if Jonas Gray – THE SNORLAX!!! – will remain in Bill Belichick’s dog house beyond this week but, for the moment, newly signed LeGarrette Blount has more value after his two TD rumbles against the Lions. If you’re the sort of masochist that enjoys owning New England RBs, he’s the guy, after Shane Vereen. Myself, I’m going to continue avoiding the situation completely; that much Tylenol would drain my bank account… Doug Martin was not only in uniform for the Bucs, he led the team in carries. Why?????? Uhhhhhh, maybe Lovie Smith’s unstable? With Martin healthy and getting the plurality of touches, there’s no Tampa RB worth owning… Juwan Thompson is one injury away from securing the safest RB job in football. If I needed a back to start immediately, of course Thompson wouldn’t be the guy; as a pickup to throw on my bench for upside, Juwanna Man morphs into a Top 10 option should any tragedy befall C.J. Anderson… Ryan Mathews is the lead clear lead back in San Diego and even avoided a shoulder scare against the Rams, yet Branden Oliver holds value in deeper PPR leagues. He’s Danny Woodhead-lite.
