Many backs disappointed last week. Oliver stepped up for the Chargers and Hopes to take advantage of the Raiders like so many have over the years.
Here’s my post Thursday night top 24 RB Ranks. Peterson started the week off with 2 Scores. Alfred Morris rumbled to 139 yards on 26 carries. Let’s look at the rest of the backs who haven’t played yet.
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.
Adrian Peterson will start his quest for 2,500 yards on Sunday in Detroit. I expect a solid day over all from a core group of the runningbacks.
