Running Backs

Javonte Williams: With Melvin Gordon out with a hip injury, Williams received the majority of the touches for the first time in his career. Williams capitalized on the opportunity turning in a stunning fantasy performance. Scoring 29.8 points off of 178 total yards, six receptions, and a receiving touchdown. If Gordon continues to miss time, Williams is an RB2 in a run-heavy offense.

David Montgomery: Montgomery has been irrelevant in fantasy this year as the Bears have struggled on offense and he has struggled with injuries. However, he turned in his best performance of the season with 28.1 points in the Bears’ loss. Montgomery finished the game with a total of 141 yards, eight receptions, and a rushing touchdown against a tough Cardinals’ defense.

Jonathan Taylor: Taylor has continued to dominate as the league’s rushing leader this year, turning in a 24.3 point performance against the Texans. Receiving a whopping 32 carries, Taylor was able to rush for 143 yards and two touchdowns against the weak Texans’ defense. After a bye week, Taylor and the Colts head into a tough matchup against the Patriots, however, he is still an RB1 as he is the focal point of the Colts’ offense.

Josh Jacobs: Jacobs had his best game of the season in the Raiders’ two-point loss to the Football Team. With a total of 90 yards, nine receptions, and a rushing touchdown, Jacobs finished the game with a total of 24.0 points. Jacobs is heading into a good matchup with the Chiefs, making him a solid RB2 next week.

Leonard Fournette: Fournette built off a strong performance last week, topping 20 points for just the fourth time this season. With a total of 92 yards, seven receptions, and a receiving touchdown Fournette had a total of 22.2 points. The Buccaneers and Fournette have a tough matchup against the Bills that could limit Fournette’s fantasy production.

Antonio Gibson: Gibson capitalized on the absence of J.D. McKissic posting a total of 22.1 points. Gibson finished with a total of 111 yards, five receptions, and a receiving touchdown in Washington’s victory over the Raiders. Gibson has turned his season around in the last few weeks and should be valued as an RB2 heading into a decent matchup with the Cowboys.
