[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The 2020 running back position returns 4 of the top 7 fantasy performers from 2019, so the top of the list is predictable.

We lost some consistent players over the years in classic running back-friendly offenses – Jonathan Taylor (Wisc), JK Dobbins (OHST), LeVante Bellamy (WMich), and Zack Moss (Utah) to name a few.

Annually RB is a position with fantasy production that is most evenly spread between classes. It’s the position you can wait on during drafts and find a Freshman or Sophomore gem. Here’s a look at our 2018 data for the class distribution of top 75 fantasy RB:

Total Points PPG Count of Sr Count of Jr Count of So Count of Fr
Top 75 RB 15,341 18.04 22 25 18 10

 

Our list will certainly change over time, but here’s a look at our pre-season Top 30![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

  1. Hey Brian! I noticed a huge drop off from 5 to 6 and below. I also see tier 1 being 1-4 and tier 2 almost stuck at Najee alone. I also see Henderson at #6. Any specific reason for that? Thanks for the insights
