Aaron Jones

It’s about time! The Packers finally realized that Aaron Jones is their best RB. Jamaal Williams only received 3 touches in Week 10. Jones has taken over the backfield and I expect it to stay that way for the remainder of the season. Have it be known that Jones did average a whopping 9.7 yards per rush last week en route to racking up 145 yards rushing and 2 TD’s.  It is highly unlikely that he repeats that against a Seattle but he can come close. Seattle is 29th in the league giving up 5 yards per rush. Aaron Rodgers is a big fan of the work Aaron Jones has been putting in.  Aaron Rodgers told reporters that the Packers “just need to continue to give him more opportunities,” referring to Aaron Jones. Jones is a RB2 the rest of the season with RB1 upside.

 

Leonard Fournette

What if I told you a man that has not played a game since Week 4, received 29 touches in Week 10? You’d think that may be crazy not to ease a player back in but for the Jags, they need to win now. Their offense has been struggling and the best way to get back on track is to get the ball to their most talented offensive player, by far. He faces a tougher task against the Steelers defense who are 4th best in the league only giving up 90.1 rush yards per game. Ultimately, the volume Fournette receives is too good not to see him as a top fantasy RB. Fournette owners who have waited for this should have a big smile on their face. Assuming Fournette stays healthy, he is a clear cut RB1 and has potential to win you a league.

Wendell Smallwood

Smallwood had 2 carries for 4 yards in Week 10. He was passed on the depth chart by Josh Adams. Corey Clement will hold on to the role as the pass-catching while Adams will get most of the early down work. Adams has averaged 6.25 yards per carry over the last three games, but he only has 20 attempts over that span including just seven against the Cowboys on Sunday night. Doug Peterson has confirmed that Adams will get more touches going forward. This makes Smallwood fantasy irrelevant and he should be dropped in all formats.

 

Carlos Hyde

Simple as this, Leonard Fournette is healthy. Hyde went from being a fantasy RB1 leading the Browns backfield to being irrelevant in fantasy. He is just Fournette’s handcuff at this point. Even if Fournette misses time again, T.J. Yeldon is likely to split carries with Hyde. Plus, the Browns I’m sure don’t miss Hyde much. Nick Chubb is the future and the future is now. I feel comfortable dropping Hyde in all formats.
