Analysis:Walter Kazee received eight more carries than teammate Adam Muema, but it was Muema who scored two touchdowns. San Diego State loves to run the ball, so Kazee is worth an add against bad run defenses. The Aztecs are on a bye next week, so wait to add him to your line-up.

News:Walter Kazee rushed for 95 yards on 14 carries in a 38-14 win over Colorado State on Saturday.

News: San Diego State starting running back Ronnie Hillman sprained his ankle against Colorado State on Saturday. To make matters worse, back up Walter Kazee sprained his right knee and is out for the season.
Analysis: Hillman's status against Boise State won't be known until later in the week. Fantasy owners should look for a replacement as he probably won't be 100 percent.
News:Ronnie Hillman kept his good performances of late rolling with 141 yards on 29 carries and one score in the win over New Mexico.
Analysis: Strange to think that Walter Kazee poached three scores from Hillman, including the game's first two. Fortunately, one of the nation's best running backs delivered in the end.
News: San Diego State running back Ronnie Hillman may have had 189 yards rushing in the season opener, but he feels he left a lot of yards out there. Hillman suffered from leg cramps throughout the game and had to come out multiple times. In his stead, Walter Kazee had 15 rushes for 82 yards.
Analysis: Hillman said he "shouldn't have to leave the game for cramps or anything." Hillman said he felt like he let his team down to a certain extent and said he'll do the things necessary to stay on the field in the future. Hillman is being a bit tough on himself, but it gives you a glimpse into the drive that has made him one of the nation's best.
News: San Diego State got a little help in the running game as Walter Kazee delivered 89 yards on the ground for the Aztecs. He also caught one pass in the win.
Analysis: With 16 total touches (15 rush, 1 pass), Kazee certainly got quality action in the game, though he got a decent action. It will be interesting to see if he continues to get touches in the 10 to 15 a game range or if this was a product of playing Cal-Poly. If he does, he will have a game or two more like this one.

News: Kazee carried seven times for 26 yards and a touchdown in San Diego State's 27-24 loss to Missouri Saturday night.

Kazee Makes an Impact in San Diego State's Opening Win
News: Kazee finished with six carries for 74 yards and a touchdown in San Diego State's rout Saturday.
Analysis: The Aztecs would love a big-play threat at running back, and it could come from Kazee. The rotation in the backfield means his fantasy value is somewhat limited.

Analysis: Kazee topped the 100-yard mark for the first time in Week 6, but he was held in check by the BYU defense. San Diego St.'s running back situation is a bit of a mess right now, so it's probably best to avoid any Aztec running back until one of them secures the starting spot and becomes a consistent producer.
News: Kazee had 22 carries for 101 yards and one touchdown as San Diego State took care of business against New Mexico State 34-17.

Analysis: Kazee did not travel with the team to play Air Force this past Saturday due to a concussion suffered in practice last week.
News: Kazee had four carries for 12 yards in San Diego St.'s loss to Idaho last Saturday.
Analysis: Kazee should see more carries in Week 4 with starting running back Brandon Sullivan (knee) unable to play.
