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.
A bunch of backs are coming off bye weeks. Matt Asiata looked great and rookie teammate Jerick McKinnon did too. They hit the road on a short week with a banged up rookie QB. I don’t expect a repeat of week 4.
Peterson didn’t play week 2. Then he was going to play week 3, now he isn’t. Hopefully you kept Matt Asiata. Jamaal Charles went down. Let’s take a look at this weeks backs.
