Unless any of those 3 guys can get healthy in time for this week’s game (unlikely), Owens will make his first NFL start with little to no competition for carries. His talent level is definitely a question, but feature backs are always a candidate to start in fantasy. QB Russell Wilson (Seattle) Percent owned (ESPN): 17.8% This rookie seems to have f...
