With salaries being set each Monday, they cannot be changed. Injuries and depth chart movement has impacted the value of these players salary significantly.
- For as long as Kareem Hunt is out, Nick Chubb will serve as the workhorse back in Cleveland. We saw last week that D’ernest Johnson took a back seat to Chubb, only registering 5 touches, while Chubb had 24. He was still only on the field for 57% of snaps, but he got the ball over half the time he was in on a play. Whenever you give a back like Chubb that much control over a backfield, big things can happen. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a blowup game for Chubb.
- Price wise, there’s a tier of running backs in the low 6000’s that I will be hammering in OwnersBox contests. Darrell Henderson, AJ Dillon, David Montgomery and James Robinson are all great plays this week. All of them will have workhorse roles in favorable matchups and can still save you some money at the running back position. These guys are being severely underrated, make sure they’re in your lineup in all formats.
- With Michael Carter out this week, look towards Ty Johnson as a great value play. The Jets get the Texans in the tank bowl of all tank bowls. The upside with Johnson comes in the receiving game, we didn’t see it last week, but he’s still had 5+ receptions in 3 of his past 5 games. Tevin Coleman will likely come in and split touches, but Johnson should still be the lead back. If you’re struggling at running back this week, don’t hesitate to throw Johnson in your lineup.
