BLAST FROM THE PAST - WEEK 6 - Backup Running Back Value


Week six started out with a bang on Thursday, with the Indianapolis Colts squeezing by the Houston Texans 33-28.  The game featured plenty of big plays, including 4 TDs from the running backs. One of those touchdowns belonged to Ahmad Bradshaw, who at the beginning of the season, was not expected to contribute much in the fantasy world, but now has been an every week start in many leagues. With so many starting running backs out or injured in 2014 (Peterson, Ball, Jennings, Mathews, etc.), it is now prudent to find backup/RBBC running backs that can be used regularly in fantasy football.  We found an interesting phenomenon in week 6 of 2013, in that there were 10 backups/RBBC RBs that produced like starters, including Brandon Jacobs who exploded for nearly 24 points.  2014 is no different right now, with guys like Brandon Oliver, Matt Asiata, and Andre Williams producing.  So, when analyzing your RB2 and Flex position options, be sure to consider backup running backs as a viable option. You'll be happy you did.
