Arian Foster, Houston Texans +350
Foster put the Texans on his back when injuries plagued Houston's passing game. The do-it-all running back posted 1,224 yards on the ground, which was fifth in the NFL. Those numbers could drop with the Texans' passing game back at full strength.
Ray Rice, Baltimore Ravens +500
Rice rushed for 1,364 yards - second most in the NFL. Baltimore is using him more and more as a receiving option, totaling more than 700 yards and three receiving TDs last season.
Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville Jaguars +650
Football fans waiting for MJD to break down could be wasting their time. The Jags RB led the NFL in rushing yards last season, motoring for 1,606 yards. And you know he had himself in fantasy football, too.
LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles +1,000
McCoy had a breakout year in 2011, rushing for 1,309 yards, which was fourth in the league. At this price, McCoy could be the best value bet on the prop board.
Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers +1,000
Mathews had his first 1,000-yard season, rushing for 1,091 yards in 2011. Injuries have held Mathews back in his first two years in the league. It will be interesting to see what the Bolts RB can do when healthy.
Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs +1,600
Charles was one of the many members of the Chiefs to get bit by the injury bug. He is expected to be cleared for training camp after shredding his ACL two games into 2011.
Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans +1,600
Three seasons ago, Johnson broke the 2,000-yard mark and had a down year in 2011, rushing for 1,047 - a season 99 percent of running backs would love to have. If Johnson can find his form, he's easily the best rusher in the NFL.
Darren McFadden, Oakland Raiders +1,800
McFadden is a home-run hitter and can pile on the yardage with just a few big runs. However, Run DMC has to stay healthy to have a shot at the league's rushing title. He posted 614 yards in just seven games last year.
Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks +1,800
"Beast Mode" has a new contract in hand and the weight of the franchise on his shoulders. Lynch will eat his share of Skittles if he wins the rushing crown.
Trent Richardson, Cleveland Browns +1,800
The Alabama product is expected to get the majority of touches in Cleveland and could become the first rookie RB to win the rushing title since Edgerrin James in 1999.

This is a 1* Free Pick on the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
This game is being played on a neutral in Australia. I don’t think that this neutral playing site will benefit either team so I am going to exploit the head to head matchup here. Cal is a team that went 9-27 combined from 2012 to 2014 before winning 8 games last year, behind a QB (Goff) that got drafted in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. This is also a Cal team that has only been a favorite away from home 3 times in the last 4 years. Cal lost their top 6 receivers and 5 of their top 6 tacklers. While Cal will have a reliable QB in Davis Webb from Texas Tech, he doesn’t have a lot of talent around him and it will take time for Webb to get in sync with these new receivers. I will also note that Cal has a new offensive coordinator. While it’s still the ‘Air Raid’ offense, there are new schemes being installed and it will take time before the Bears are putting up 40+ points. With only 3 seniors starting on defense, I like Hawaii to score enough points to cover this spread. Hawaii is 5-0 ATS in Week 1 the last five years and are undervalued in this spot. There's a new Head Coach for Hawaii and he used to play for the Rainbow Warriors. Nick Rolovich was the QB for Hawaii and will have former teammate Brian SMith as the offensive coordinator and associate head coach. I think these two guys are going to gel great and Hawaii can only get better as a team. Rolovich was the OC at Nevada the last 4 years. Rolovich came to Nevada after a wildly productive four-year run at Hawaii, where he directed one of the top passing offenses in the nation. He was the quarterbacks coach all four seasons and spent the last two years as the Warriors' offensive coordinator.In Rolovich’s first game with Nevada in 2012, Rolovich beat Cal, 31-24, as a 12 point road dog, so their is some ‘deja vu’ here and a great storyline. Hawaii returns 9 players on offense (73 offensive line starts). Senior QB Woolsey should be able to lead the team on some scores against this soft Cal defense. While Hawaii’s weakness is their secondary, the Cal Bears passing game is not going to be up to full speed yet. I think Hawaii will be improved offensively from last year and Cal will struggle to score, especially touchdowns and the defense is not good enough to offset the offensive regression. Special Teams: Senior utility kicker Sanchez was one of only five kickers nationally to handle all duties. As a field goal kicker, he converted 8-of-11 attempts, including two from 47 yards and a long of 50 to earn all-Mountain West Honorable Mention. So we have a quality FG kicker on our side here as well. While we are looking for touchdowns, all scores will help and this game should have it’s fair share of field goal opportunities.
