Salvon Ahmed

If Week 10 left you scraping at the bottom of the barrel for running backs, there’s a good chance you pulled Salvon Ahmed from the depths, and started him against the Los Angeles Chargers.

With Myles Gaskin landing on IR (knee) in Week 8, fantasy managers began wondering who would be responsible for the work load going forward. While it was Jordan Howard who led the team in rushes in Week 9 (10/19/0), it was Ahmed’s performance (7/38/0) that put him in line to start in Week 10.

In short, Ahmed delivered.

The rookie running back totaled 21 carries for the Fish in Week 10, rumbling for 85 yards and a score.

In the red zone, Ahmed dominated in opportunities as well, seeing eight opportunities (league-high) and turning them into 10.1 PPR. On the day, Ahmed finished with 16.0 PPR, and was the RB14 for the week.
