2019 Zero RB Candidates Countdown: No. 15 to No. 11

Welcome to the 2019 Zero RB target list where we help you find inexpensive RBs to destroy your league. The list isn't just for Zero RB owners. You can use the list to construct a Zero RB squad, to fill out your 1-Elite-RB roster, or to build Flex upside into a RB-heavy start.

With his 2018 picks hitting at a high rate, Shawn won his 11th high-stakes league at the Main Event level or higher and added to his double-digit totals in top-15 national finishes. The Zero RB selections also helped him snag his third MFL10 of Death title in four years. 

Today, he begins the Zero RB countdown for 2019.

We’ve had a lot of great Zero RB content this offseason.

We also know that 1-Elite-RB is a perfect approach for 2019, which means we can build an unstoppable juggernaut if we can snag a second elite RB in the later rounds.

But now it’s time to answer the question everyone really cares about: Who are the next RB stars for the approach?

The Zero RB target list has been extremely successful at nailing these players. In 2014 I explained the methodology I used from 2008 to 2013 to create outsized gains in high stakes formats. If you then used the list in 2015 through 2018, well, you're playing with house money this season.

  • 2015 – The target list included Devonta Freeman and Doug Martin. Martin went off the board at RB17 but finished as RB4. Freeman was selected outside the first 100 picks at RB29 but finished as the overall RB1.
  • 2016 – Melvin Gordon was my top breakout candidate and highest-owned player.
  • 2017 – Long before the Spencer Ware injury, we urged you to buy Kareem Hunt when he was still going outside the top 100. We also recommended Alvin Kamara, thus helping owners buy the No. 3 and No. 4 fantasy RBs on the season. With those results, the inclusion of Duke Johnson (RB11) and Chris Thompson (RB10 in PPG) almost seem like afterthoughts.

2018 may have been the best year for our RB selections. Phillip Lindsay made the Watch List. Top-30 RBs Matt Breida, Austin Ekeler, and Nyheim Hines all made the countdown. Top-15 finishers Chris Carson and Tarik Cohen were both primary recommendations, while top-10 finishers James White and James Conner appeared on the Zero RB list and the Handcuffs Who Could Be RB1s respectively.

Zero RB works. The evidence is unequivocal. But RotoViz users benefit from not only a deeper understanding of the strategy but from the time and research we put into RB selection. This season writers like Ryan Collinsworth, Cort Smith, and Blair Andrews have continued to build on our understanding of the RB templates that yield outsized results. We'll look at their work and more as I present the RBs I'm drafting in 2019.

Is Stefon Diggs scoring more points than expected based on game situation? How difficult is Matt Ryan's upcoming schedule? Is Lamar Jackson targeting Marquise Brown deep down the field?

WEEKLY GLSP PROJECTIONS

 

How many points will Nick Chubb score this week? 10, 15, 20? Wouldn't it be great to have an idea of what a poor, average, or strong performance would look like? Better yet, why not get a sense of how players similar to Chubb have fared when playing defenses similar to the one he will oppose? 

The RotoViz WEEKLY GLSP PROJECTIONS do just that. You select a player and the tool finds instances in which similar players faced defenses similar to his current week matchup. The tool then summarizes the results of these matchups -- generating an average stat line and fantasy point range of outcomes. Quickly export the entire set of projections, draw conclusions based on the included graphs, and compare specific players.
