Sean Cummings, Pittsburgh: I need a big game from one of my running backs this week to make the playoffs, and I already have Deuce McAllister and Domanick Davis. I also need to decide on who to play between Kevin Jones and Nick Goings.

Engel: Goings has already proved he is a quality fantasy starter with two consecutive quality performances. Jones is coming on as well. Yet the fact that Goings faces the awful Saints defense makes him the clear choice here. Jones faces Arizona, which is also a vulnerable unit, but even the Cardinals seem more sturdy up front than New Orleans.
