RB Super Chart: Week 10 (Fantasy Football)
Week 9 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 10 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.
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.

- The biggest surprise in Week 9 at the running back position had to be Duke Johnson. Johnson scored 29.6 fantasy points, which more than quadrupled his points per game average heading into last Sunday. He could have another spectacular performance in store this week against a 30th-ranked Atlanta run defense that particularly struggles against receiving backs.
- Le’Veon who? Ignore the noise about Bell potentially reporting soon. This is James Conner’s backfield, as he continues to dominate the competition. Conner ranks third in FPPG with 26.1 and has handled a league-high 91 percent of his team’s backfield shares.
- T.J. Yeldon stands out with his 16.6 FPPG, which puts him just inside the top 12. His numbers will drop with Leonard Fournette likely returning from injury this week, but it shows the upside a back can have in the Jacksonville offense. Yeldon could still have flex appeal in PPR formats, as he is expected to hold onto the third-down/receiving role.
- Alvin Kamara is back to his old ways after Mark Ingram caused a bit of a scare a few weeks ago when it looked like he would steal significant touches. Kamara’s 23 touches were tied for the second-most in Week 9, as he accounted for 68 percent of New Orleans’ backfield touches.
- Is there a safer PPR play in fantasy than James White? White now has 61 receptions on the season and is averaging an incredible 1.63 fantasy points per touch.
- Keep an eye on Elijah McGuire in New York. The second-year back secured 40 percent of New York’s backfield touches in his first game of the season. He is arguably their most exciting offensive player and should see an increased workload down the stretch.
