The top five remain unchanged from last week and after his Big 10 POW against Michigan last week, Scott Tolzien moves up to #6.  Pryor and Forcier's numbers are surprisingly comparable across the board. 

Running Backs

National POW: Toby Gerhart, Stanford vs USC +8 (169 yds, 3 TD)
Big 10 POW: Evan Royster, Penn St vs Indiana +7 (134 combined yds, 2 TD)

Dan Herron Ohio State 8 -2.0 -1.3 14 54 0.9 3.8

A lot of movement at the top this week.  Royster jumps up to #1 after a big week and John Clay falls to #3 since Michigan's weak rush defense negated a lot of his value last Saturday.  The Buckeyes carries are relatively split, with no one back controlling a large share of the carries or value.

Keith Smith drops back into a virtual tie with Eric Decker and there are still no Wolverines on the list.  Posey and Sanzenbacher from OSU both make the list, with Posey coming in 4th in the Big 10.

Never would have thought I'd see a day where no player from Michigan would be represented on the WR list while three MSU players do.

Posey has become Pryor's favorite target. It was Sanzenbacher earlier this season, but Posey has gotten more looks lately. Just can't leave anybody open deep. Pryor makes a living off those.
