LIZA LOZA: Well, I want to talk about a running back. For weeks, Andy and I discussed it, in fact, on the Yahoo fantasy football forecast podcast. Todd Gurley has been usurped by Ito Smith. We've seen it coming. Finally, after he just carried the ball three times, where he and Morris made it official after last week. And it was Ito Smith who is now the lead back.

Also worth noting that Smith last week drew three targets, no Julio Jones in that game, no Julio Jones again in this game. He's facing the Chiefs. We've talked about all season that the Chiefs are a defense that will let you run on them. They're giving up the 10th most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and they're also allowing an average of 4.6 yards per carry to opposing rushers.

I think Ito Smith is in line for at least-- I'd take the over on 85 scrimmage yards here.
