RB Super Chart: Week 7 (Fantasy Football)

Oct 17, 2018

Week 6 of the 2018 NFL season is in the books and to keep you up to date, we’ve put together an all-in-one spreadsheet filled with several fantasy-relevant statistics from last week and year to date. We call it the Super Chart and its purpose is to provide you with all of the data, stats, and fantasy information you need in one place. Our Super Chart can be used to help determine your starting lineups, waiver wire pickups, trade evaluations, 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 Week 7 edition of the Running Back Super Chart, 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.

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

  • Todd Gurley’s 36.5-point performance moved him ahead of Alvin Kamara for the number one spot in Fantasy Points Per Game (FPPG) with 29.3 on the season.
  • Christian McCaffrey, James Conner, and David Johnson were the only RBs to account for 90-plus percent of their respective team’s backfield touches.
  • Kenyan Drake continues to be in an almost even timeshare with veteran Frank Gore, as he handled just 52 percent of the backfield shares this past weekend, which is the same as his year-to-date total.
  • With Devonta Freeman landing on the IR, Ito Smith may be the back to own over Tevin Coleman. Smith out-touched Coleman 13 to 11, while averaging 1.07 fantasy points per touch to Coleman’s 0.8.
  • After posting nine receptions on Thursday night, Saquon Barkley now leads all RBs with 40 receptions on the year.
  • Kyle Juszczyk amazingly leads all RBs with 2.49 fantasy points per touch. The next closest is Nick Chubb with 1.83.
  • Perhaps to no one’s surprise, Derrick Henry is ranked last (min. 20 touches) in that same category with a lowly 0.39 FPPT.
  • There are only three RBs with three 100-yard performances on the ground this season: Todd Gurley, James Conner, and Ezekiel Elliott.
