Jerome Ford Week 3 Outlook - Titans at Browns

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Ford will be one of the top waiver wire pickups this week. The news of Nick Chubb's injury is devastating. With Chubb lost for the season, Ford takes over as the team's starting do-it-all back. He played 49% of the snaps, finishing with 19 touches and 131 total yards as the RB6 in Week 2. Ford is a talented player, ranking sixth in yards after contact per attempt and 17th in elusive rating. Ford only had a 25% route per team dropback rate in the fourth quarter of Week 2 (Pierre Strong 15%), so he might not be the undisputed passing down back in Week 3. Tennesse's run defense remains an elite unit. They have the third-highest stuff rate, second-lowest rate of runs of 5-plus yards, sixth-lowest missed tackles, and third-lowest yards after contact per attempt allowed. Keep expectations in check for Ford this week. Week 3 Positional Value: volume-based RB2/high-end RB3
