NFL Running Back Workloads: Week 15
Mike Alexander takes a look at running back workloads from Week 15 of the NFL season and breaks down what it means going forward.
We’ve reached Week 16. If your league has any sense this is your Championship week. May the football gods favor your fake team. Here are some RB situations to monitor if you’re lucky enough to still be making lineup decisions.
Kenyan Drake , RB ARI - The Drake has taken over the Cardinals backfield. Even with David Johnson and Chase Edmunds getting healthier he dominated the snaps with 75% (46). That translated to four TDs. Four! Drake has always had big play ability. That seems like a perfect fit for uptempo Arizona.
Raheem Mostert , RB SF - Honey Mostert’s snaps backed off some with Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman taking 12 and 19, respectively. That isn’t unexpected. Neither Breida nor Coleman looked very good with their opportunities. Somehow Mostert is going to be the 49ers RB to own in 2020.
