RB Super Chart: Week 6 (Fantasy Football)

Oct 11, 2018

Welcome to the Week 6 Fantasy Football Super Chart series of the 2018 NFL season, covering the running back position. The Super Chart is an all-in-one spreadsheet that breaks down significant stats, trends, and numbers from the previous week and year-to-date. The main purpose of the Super Chart is to help you determine your starting lineup, waiver wire pickups, and much more by using various forms of stat-driven data. Tracking critical information such as backfield shares and touches, fantasy points per touch, and weekly matchups can help you identify breakout candidates by noticing trends before other managers in your league.

Before we get to the good part, please take a moment to review each category and what it means. If you are already familiar with all of the terms and categories, feel free to skip ahead to view the Super Chart for Week 6.

Weekly Fantasy Points/Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG)
The first stat that we track is simple, yet important. The Super Chart is sorted by Fantasy Points Per Game, but also includes fantasy point totals from the previous week.

Weekly Touches/Weekly Touch %
This is one of the most underrated aspects of fantasy football. As mentioned earlier, studying the percentage of touches for each backfield can help you determine potential breakout and bust candidates in advance.

YTD Touches/YTD Touch %
We not only track weekly touch percentages but also year-to-date touches. Any running back hovering around that 75-80 percent range should be considered a workhorse.

Weekly/YTD Receptions
PPR formats have taken over the fantasy football landscape and tracking receptions is a vital part of finding consistent success. Running backs that don’t catch many passes are usually touchdown-dependent and are more likely to struggle with consistency.

Next Week Opponent
This is pretty self-explanatory. It’s a look ahead to the upcoming matchup with the opposition’s rank against the run in fantasy. The 32nd ranked fantasy defense is a favorable matchup, while the 1st ranked defense is the most difficult.

# of 100 Yard Games
Some leagues offer bonus points at 100 yards rushing, and it’s also a great way to track rushing consistency.

Fantasy Points Per Touch
Lastly, fantasy points per touch can help you identify explosive players who can put up big numbers with more opportunity.

The Super Chart is packed with so much information that we can only fit so much into the article. To view the Super Chart in its entirety, please click here.

Quick Hits

  • Is it time for Alvin Kamara owners to panic? Mark Ingram scored 21.3 fantasy points in his first game back, while Kamara scored just 6.9. Despite the letdown, Kamara still leads all RBs with 28.6 FPPG.
  • Don’t look now, but Alfred Blue amassed the most touches in Week 5 with 28. He handled 100 percent of Houston’s backfield touches with Lamar Miller sitting out.
  • James Conner and Ezekiel Elliott continue to dominate touches, as both players are tied for the league-lead with a 91 percent share of their respective team’s backfield touches.
  • Todd Gurley, Kareem Hunt, Saquon Barkley, and Christian McCaffrey are the only other RBs to handle an 80 percent share or greater, which is the cut-off percentage I like to use to determine workhorse RBs.
  • James White has established himself as an RB1 in PPR formats. His 10 receptions in Week 5 bumped him up to 32 on the season, which trails only Alvin Kamara (38). White is currently ninth in FPPG.
  • Kyle Juszczyk is averaging a league-leading 2.73 fantasy points per touch. Nick Chubb, James White, and Austin Ekeler are next in line. Get these guys more touches!
  • Peyton Barber, Derrick Henry, and Doug Martin are among the least productive RBs in the league, averaging 0.42 fantasy points per touch or lower through the first five weeks of the season.
