Fantasy Football: Dustin Whitehead’s top 100 RB’s in full point PPR scoring

Fantasy Football

Today, I’m going to tell you why drafting a handcuff is overrated. The handcuff is unlikely to get the same type of workload. One example of this is the Low Angeles Rams. Many people think if you draft Todd Gurley that you have to draft Darrell Henderson. However, the Rams brought back Malcolm Brown. If Gurley got injured, those two other RB’s would likely be in some committee. That’s why you have to be careful what handcuff you pick. Now say the off injured Dalvin Cook got hurt, it would be worth having his backup Alexander Mattison because he should get a full workload.

Ten guys to think about

Ezekial Elliott

Ezekial Elliott is likely the favorite to lead the league in rushing touchdowns. Receptions in a PPR format has always been the question regarding Elliott. Last season Elliott answered the question about his receiving ability. Elliott finished the 2018-2019 season with 77 receptions. More than doubling his previous career-high of 32 receptions. Even with those improvements, I’m unwilling to take Elliott over the other three top tier RB’s (Saquan Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, and Alvin Kamara) in a full PPR league.

Melvin Gordon

Many people have many different RB’s as there fifth overall RB. Melvin Gordon is my personal choice for that distinction. Gordan may not get the snaps of a bell cow, but he gets the carries of a bell cow RB. The only primary concern with Gordon is the random injuries. However, when Gordon is on the field, you can almost lock him in for 15 fantasy points a game.

David Johnson

Last season Davis Johnson was an overall disappointment. The Cardinal failed to use Johnson to the best of his ability. With new Head Coach, Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals Offense should be improved. Johnson Should have a great season. However, my bold prediction is that Todd Gurley will be a better Fantasy play, then David Johnson. People are overreacting about Todd Gurley’s arthritis, and not considering the risks of Johnson. Nobody knows if Kingsbury’s Offense will e successful in the NFL. We all know what the Rams Offense is capable of.

Nick Chubb

Nick Chubb has top-five RB upside. There’s just a lot of questions with his health. If Chubb can stay healthy, his ceiling is limitless. Chubb could lead the league in rushing touchdowns if given the opportunity. Chubb should get a lot of chances early in the season, but Kareem Hunt will eventually be coming back in the middle of the season. If Chubb can take care of business early in the season, he should have no problem holding off Hunt.

Damian Williams

Damian Williams did an excellent job replacing the previously mentioned Kareem Hunt at the end of last season. Willaims went from a career backup to a big-time contributor almost overnight. Williams will come with a lot of risks, but its a risk worth taking when you look at the Kansas City Chiefs Offense. Head Coach, Andy Reed has always used the RB well. Williams has RB1 upside if he can prove he wasn’t a fluke last season.

Kerryon Johnson

The Lions are projected to be a run-heavy offense. Kerryon Johnson has all the talent to be a solid fantasy contributor. With Johnson’s injury history, the Lions will likely try to keep Johnson around 15 carries per game. Last season Johnson did do a lot when he got 15 carries a game though. If Johnson is your RB2, you should be happy.

Aaron Jones

Aaron Jones continues to be the guy everyone wants to get the carries but keeps having to split carries. Jones showed everyone the ability he has when given the opportunity. Packers new head coach Matt LaFleur also has a history of using a committee during his time as an offensive coordinator. Jones might just be doomed, but is worth the risk if you’re confident that he will get 15-20 carries a game.

Derrick Henry

I’ve never been a fan of drafting Derrick Henry. Around half of his fantasy production in 2018-2019 came in two games. Dion Lewis should still get his fair share of playing time, especially in passing situations. Maybe Henry puts it all together; I’m just not buying it.

Kenyon Drake

Kenyon Drake has never been able to take full control of the Dolphins backfield. Drake has shown flashes but has left a lot to be desired. Once again, Drake will be given the opportunity to be the clear cut RB1 for the Dolphins. If Drake is your RB2, you could be in trouble. However, if Drake is your RB3, that’s a different story. You don’t want to have to rely on Drake as an RB2. Drake as a rotational flex could be valuable though.

Royce Freeman

A lot of people had high hopes for Royce Freeman as a rookie. Then all of a sudden Freeman lost the starting job to an undrafted free agent named Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay got hurt late last season, so this could be more of a 50/50 split this season. Lindsay is going between the third and fifth round. So Freeman could be a target later in the draft if you believe this backfield will be more of a split.
