Here as a continuation from the last post of on quarterbacks we are running with these running backs for all sites as of friday night, even though injury news needs to be clarified for many players as game time decisions. Manage your teams wisely. projected to being behind in the game especially on the road is a bit dicey, more so then playing a good defense.
- C-MAC 22.3 PROJ on Draftkings.
Despite what they say, that this is a tough matchup, the 49ers are beatable and other running backs have gotten yards on them in past matchups. Still a must start for the points.
2. Saquon Barkley 20.2 PROJ on DK
Barkley’s team should also be behind in the game on the road, however the projected total here is at 49 points currently. These first 2 backs are workhorses not only in the running game but get heavy passing work as well.
3. Leonard Fournette 19 PROJ on DK
This guy is in a smash spot as you need him in your lineups. At the same time, he does not get the touchdowns you would expect from a guy that gets as many carries and targets as he does, comparable to the top 2 dudes. Great game script at home and favored in the game.
4. Chris Carson 18.7 PROJ on DK
Carson being on the road, favored, and in a high over/under of 53.5 with Atlanta looking like the worst team in the league has this guy in the next smash spot. Try everything to get him in your lineups unless you fit all three guys above, (not likely anywhere you play)
5. Josh Jacobs 13.6 PROJ on DK
The next guy up as a possibility on your cash roster is a guy who should also be behind in the game, however the total being 51.5 is almost the most massive on the slate as the Raiders don’t have many other options to roll out as he gets over 20 touches a game usually with a team that’s usually behind in games anyway.
6. Derrick Henry 14.9 PROJ
It looks as if the Titans are taking a balanced approach with their offense which will work just fine in the at home and favored scenario. Tannehill is not taking any redzone work away from him. Good upside.
7. Le’Veon Bell 18.3 PROJ
This is about as far as I’ll go as I prioritize RB’s as Bell is a decent play, usually they are behind and still feature him in their passing game too.
