Running backs want the ball. They need the ball. But if they get the ball, you probably don’t want them. At not your fantasy team.
If you’re going to build a competitor and want to follow the advice of our Twitsperation here, you’ll want to avoid backs who get the ball a lot.
*To be fair, he’s probably talking about preseason carries – but it’s our Twitsperation nonetheless.
I don’t like my RBs with a lot of carries. I don’t care if I have a small sample size with which to judge them.

1) Arian FosterHe led the league in rushing attempts last season. All that did was help the Houston Texans into the playoffs for the second-consecutive year.
Yeah, you lost. How could you know though.
4) Doug MartinYes, that is a picture from the Pro Bowl. You know what that means. He’s terrible.
Remember when he did this? Maybe he needs a lot of carries after all.
Numerous examples here of why he probably shouldn’t get a lot of carries.
9) Shonn GreeneHe couldn’t even get the Jets to the playoffs. What? Don’t blame Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan!
10) Chris JohnsonHe doesn’t even need a chair.
