What we learned: Charles strong in losing effort
The key running backs, however, remained disappointing. I ranked Brandon Jacobs in my top 20 among running backs this week, and while he seemed to slash through the Eagles defense at times early in the game, he finished with a mere 60 rushing yards on 4 yards per carry, one touchdown and, thanks to a key fumble, only 10 fantasy points. Ahmad Bradshaw looked better, and actually had more fantasy points. LeSean McCoy was also the second-best running back on his own team despite getting more carries than Leonard Weaver. Now I'm wondering how far McCoy will drop in my rankings for Week 15, and if I should move up Bradshaw and Weaver.
