Use these player salaries as context for building your Week 3 OwnersBox lineups. There is some great value at the running back position. It’s difficult to predict a players performance in a single week. But some players have great matchups in Week 3 or are looking at a heavier workload.

Running Back


  • Saquon Barkley saw a significant increase in usage last week against the Football Team, with a better matchup against the Falcons expect him to get his fantasy season back on track in Week 3.
  • The Steelers are limiting opposing running backs to 3.4 yards per carry. Joe Mixon has already been struggling with efficiency through 2 weeks. This is a poor matchup for the Bengals top back.
  • The Kansas City Chiefs are the worst team against the run in the NFL so far, giving up 6.0 YPC. Austin Ekeler could be the top running back on the week.
