Fantasy Football: RBs That Could Get off to a Fast Start
Each week I'll try and give everyone a little help in turning in their lineup. In this week's edition I'm giving you 4 running backs that could score big in the first 3 weeks of the season.
RB, Jacquizz Rodgers - Tampa Bay
Jacquizz opens the season as the starting running back with Doug Martin suspended for 3 games. Rogers faces 3 low level run defenses from last in those first 3 games. Miami ranked #30, Chicago #27 and the Vikings #20.
RB, Melvin Gordon - LA Chargers
Gordon and the Chargers open the season against 3 teams that struggled against the run last season and Gordon isn't expected to share carries. He faces Denver #28, Miami #30 and Kansas City #26.
RB, Jonathan Stewart/Christian McCaffrey - Carolina
The Panthers open the season against 3 sub-par defenses. San Francisco was 32nd against the run last season, Buffalo was 29th and New Orleans was #14. The Saints were 32nd against the pass which may help McCaffrey.
