The Ultimate Zero RB Watch List provides analysis for Zero RB and RB-heavy owners alike. Blair Andrews examines the running back workloads for every AFC backfield from Week 4. Check out Shawn Siegele’s companion piece on NFC backfields.
Almost every fantasy team can use a breakout RB, whether they were drafted as a Zero-RB squad or not. The Ultimate Zero RB Watch List helps to find these breakout stars before they hit. But it also helps you understand which of the high-profile backs you should be buying and selling based on workload shifts.
We’ll use the RotoViz tools to dive deep into the Week 4 advanced stats for every AFC backfield, focusing on expected points (EP), fantasy points over expectations (FPOE), and opportunity (snaps, targets, and carries).
Mark Ingram trailed all Baltimore RBs in snaps. In fact, it was the second week in a row in which J.K. Dobbins was on the field for more snaps than Ingram. Dobbins also led the way in targets for the second straight week. He now has a 12% target share over the last two games. Unfortunately, we’re still talking about the Ravens — that amounts to only six total targets.
