Leveon is ready to go and has a great matchup in Cleveland. Which rookie runningbacks are worth the start? Which Patriots back could be worth a start? Week 1 you should start the players you know will get the best opportunity to get touches and playing time. Guys with questions or in a rotation should be considered more of a flex option until we see them in action.
If you’re drafting soon, here’s my top twelve fantasy picks. Based on a standard league. Not much would change in a PPR format here. Later rounds for sure. I really think you can’t go wrong with either of the top 3 guys here.
Adrian Peterson hasn’t been himself. Jamaal Charles continues to be a rock. Let’s check in on week 8 to see where they land in my top 24.
LeSean McCoy and Shane Vereen were the only two back to top 100 yards. Adrian Peterson scored 3 total TD’s. It was a disappointing week 1 overall for the runningbacks.
Some of the top guys in years past have slid a bit. Younger guys are making a push for top 15 spots. Many teammates will split carries.
Adrian Peterson put on another big performance last week. This week he has a tougher test.
The league’s rushing leader of week 13 and the season has a tough week 14 match up. He was able to rush for 108 yards against the same team a few weeks back. So he is a must start at home this week as always.
