After losing touches to Tim Hightower in the red zone, Mark Ingram made a strong case this weekend that he deserved the looks from in close.

Red Zone Watch: Week 15

Ty Montgomery's emergence as a legitimate red-zone rushing option has given the Packers a dimension they have struggled to use in recent weeks, and it could hurt the receivers' fantasy value.

Red Zone Watch: Week 14

With Matt Forte looking likely to miss time with a knee injury, Bilal Powell becomes the most attractive red-zone option for the Jets.

Red Zone Watch: Week 13

LeSean McCoy had another big fantasy performance Sunday against the Raiders, but he missed out on a potentially explosive day thanks to Mike Gillislee vulturing two short TDs.

Despite Cam Newton rushing for a touchdown early in Sunday's game against the Raiders, running back Jonathan Stewart scored two short TDs and lead the league in red-zone carries.

Red Zone Watch: Week 11

Thomas Rawls' return from injury went about as expected, and with C.J. Prosise likely out for the rest of the season, Rawls should have no backfield competition in the red zone.

Red Zone Watch: Week 10

Jordan Reed had the third-most red-zone receiving touchdowns last season, but with quarterback Kirk Cousins looking for others inside the 20 this year, Reed hasn't been nearly as productive for fantasy owners.

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman keeps getting opportunities in the red zone, but unless he starts converting more, the team could rely more on Matt Ryan's arm when they are in close.

Drew Brees has completed nearly 90 percent of his passes inside the 10-yard line, as the Saints continue to ride his arm near the goal line.

Red Zone Watch: Week 5

DeMarco Murray continues to carry the load for the Titans, but will quarterback Marcus Mariota start chipping away at his goal-line looks?

Washington's Kirk Cousins has the worst red-zone completion rate of any QB with at least 10 attempts, and if his struggles continue, the team may have to turn to running back Matt Jones from in close.

Red Zone Watch: Zeke's Getting Pulled

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 30 times for 140 yards Sunday against the Bears, but three other Dallas players scored rushing touchdowns, making the rookie's fantasy owners panic.
