Weekly Fantasy Football – Week 1 Running Back Picks

The biggest advantage of weekly fantasy football leagues is you can draft players based on matchups, which is a huge advantage with running backs. Generally, you want to stay away from the Jets and Steelers defenses and take advantage of the Bills and Bengals.

Week 1:

1. Chris Johnson

There has been a small backlash against Johnson because of his contract ลิ้งค์ทางเข้า ufabet holdout. I do not expect him to miss a beat. Matt Hasselbeck will be good enough to keep Jacksonville’s defense honest, but he knows Johnson is the playmaker and will lean on him heavily. Also, with the Jags cutting ties with David Garrard and counting on Luke McCown, their offense will struggle big time, which should give Tennessee plenty of opportunities to put up points.

2. Jamaal Charles

Charles is a great back, but I believe he and the Chiefs will regress from last year. However, they will have no trouble this week with Buffalo. The Bills had the worst rush defense in the league last year, and Charles should easily put up over 100 yards and a couple TD’s this week.

3. Adrian Peterson

Similar to Tennessee, the Vikings brought in a new, veteran quarterback who will do a lot of handing off to Peterson while he gets acclimated with the offense. I also expect Peterson to get more receiving yards since McNabb will check down to him more often as he gets comfortable with his new receiving corps.
