Assume a .5PPR scoring format. Which of the following RBs are most likely to finish ahead of the pack at the end of the season? Small writeup on each.
Burkhead - Lead NFL in pts/route last season, goal line monster, contending with Sony Michel for touches
Anderson - 270 touches last season w/ the Broncos, now competing with CMC. JStew in the same role amassed 210 touches. Due for more goal line work?
Thompson - Guice isn’t going to take away 3rd down snaps. CT was extremely efficient last year, just couldn’t withstand the volume. Alex Smith has spent his entire career dropping off passes to good RBs. Bonus?
Kerryon - Mixed bag of competition. Blount at the GL, Riddick on 3rd down. Abdullah? Probably not, but maybe. Kerryon profiles as a workhorse back and the offense should be great, but a lot of chefs in that kitchen. Especially for a rookie.
- Rex Burkhead
- CJ Anderson
- Chris Thompson
- Kerryon Johnson
