Fantasy football: Bargain picks include running backs Alfred Morris, C.J. Spiller and Michael Bush

Once Ahmad Bradshaw returns for the Giants, Andre Brown's value will drop
by Michael Baldwin Published: September 17, 2012

Houston running back Ben Tate, if available, has some value. Arian Foster steals most of the carries, but Tate ran for 74 yards and two touchdowns in a win Sunday against Jacksonville.

St. Louis rookie running back Daryl Richardson played well after veteran Steven Jackson left with a groin injury. Richardson beat out Isaiah Pead but has little value if Jackson is healthy.

Don't get too excited about San Diego running back Jackie Battle following a 69-yard, two-TD performance against the Titans. Chargers starter Ryan Matthews is expected to return next week.

Survivor pick: (pool members pick a “lock” every week; eliminated with one loss; can use each team only once): DALLAS. The Cowboys should take care of business against Tampa Bay. Since Dallas begins a tougher portion of its schedule starting week 4, this is the week to use the Cowboys.
