News:Tre Mason ran for 82 yards against Alabama on Saturday, giving him 1,002 yards (5.9 YPC) and eight touchdowns as a runner in 2012.
Analysis: A new coaching staff for 2013 leaves Tre Mason's value a bit uncertain heading into the offseason, but his strong 2012 season generally gives him the right to head into next year as Auburn's top running back. He showed both explosiveness and dependability this year, averaging nearly six yards per carry while going over the 15-carry mark five times despite not clearly earning the starting role until mid-October or so.
News:Tre Mason ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries against Alabama A&M on Saturday.
Analysis: While Tre Mason quietly had himself a nice 2012, running for 920 yards and eight touchdowns, he's unlikely to do well against Alabama.
News:Tre Mason ran for 152 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries against New Mexico State on Saturday.
Analysis:Tre Mason has decisively established himself as the Auburn running back of the foreseeable future. He's a risky start against Georgia outside of SEC-only leagues, however.
News:Tre Mason ran for 80 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries against Texas A&M on Saturday.
Analysis:Tre Mason has been very steady lately, and he should have a big game in store when he takes on New Mexico State this week.
News:Tre Mason ran for 85 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries against Vanderbilt on Saturday.
Analysis: It's Tre Mason's second game with over 80 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He has looked good when given the opportunity this year, and he certainly needs to be owned in SEC-only leagues.
News:Tre Mason ran for 82 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries against Mississippi on Saturday.
Analysis: Auburn finally gave Tre Mason a chance to carry the load, and he came through. We don't feel comfortable saying this will happen weekly, but if it does, Mason would become valuable in many or most formats.
News:Tre Mason ran for 32 yards on six carries against Arkansas on Saturday while Mike Blakely ran for 38 yards on seven carries and Onterio McCalebb ran for 24 yards on seven carries.
Analysis: No runner at Auburn is consistently getting enough touches to be a fantasy factor.
News:Tre Mason ran for 90 yards and a touchdown against Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday while catching a 34-yard pass.
Analysis:Tre Mason looks like a pretty good player and Auburn seems likely to give him more carries than any other runner, but between Auburn's bad offense and Mason's shaky workload, he's best left on waivers outside of SEC-only leagues in most cases.
News:Tre Mason carried the ball just eight times for 25 yards against Mississippi State on Saturday.
Analysis: After a strong Week 1, Tre Mason gave way to Mike Blakely as the most active Auburn rusher. Blakely had 11 carries for 42 yards. It's a situation to avoid for now.
News:Tre Mason led Auburn with 14 carries for 106 yards against Clemson on Saturday.
Analysis: Considering Auburn's offense was quite dysfunctional Saturday, Tre Mason's numbers are rather encouraging. He's a must-own in SEC leagues right now.
News:Tre Mason is on Auburn's two-deep at running back and has increased his weight to over 200 pounds, Al.com reports.
Analysis: We'll be moving Tre Mason's projections up in light of this. Auburn needs someone to run inside now that Michael Dyer is gone, and Onterio McCalebb is too light to do it on any consistent basis.
News: Auburn head coach Gene Chizik will finally have to put to rest his hopes that Florida transfer Mike Blakely could line up for the Tigers this season.
Analysis: Blakely is very talented but with Onterio McCalebb, Michael Dyer, and Tre Mason around, it is best that he takes a redshirt.
News: Despite not having been at practice or signing scholarship papers, head coach Gene Chizik is not willing to say that running back Mike Blakely is lost for this season.
Analysis: Even if Blakely were to somehow see the field, the carries would be hard to come by with Michael Dyer, Onterio McCalebb, and Tre Mason around.
News: Auburn running back Tre Mason has been declared academically eligible and is now practicing with the team.
Analysis: Without a doubt Michael Dyer and Onterio McCalebb will demand the bulk of the carries, but Mason could see the field early.
