Less than 24hours and football season is officially back. With fantasy football will coming also. As the running back was one of the most important position should fill. The running backs are the one who runs the ball most in red zones. Each team picks that position in the first round.
Every team manager set them as RB1. With one more slot available or make it two with the flex. It’s hard who is best and fits in every match. One bad decision at the position can ruin your chance of winning.
Here is the best for week one who can help your team.
Philip Lindsay/ Royce Freeman
The easiest to put in your roster as these two was a 1-2 punch in the field. Last season it was Lindsay who gets more of the workload. However, Freeman is still up there who can give you a 100 yeard per game if he gets enough snaps. Also, the schedule played a big part as they facing the worst defense in the NFL. Oakland allowed last in points and 26th in yards given up.
Duke Johnson Jr
The former Cleveland Browns running back demand a trade. As he’s playing behind Nick Chubb. He is now a Texan and the best second option because of Lamar Miller’s injury. He was limited to 2 starts last season. Expects him to bounce back as he is a dual-threat. Johnson scored three touchdowns as a receiver.
The Buccaneers will face the Niners defense who gave up 27 points per game last season. With Barber as a team starting back, he’s predicted to continue what he did last time. He just ran for below 1000 yards but scored 5 touchdowns. He also scored a touchdown as a receiver. With more touch that numbers will rise up.
