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.
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.
