Pick at least one running back from each subset you prefer to target and fade (so four selections total) for Week 11:
Christian McCaffrey (vs. Atlanta)
Dalvin Cook (vs. Denver)
Ezekiel Elliott (at Detroit)
Josh Jacobs (vs. Cincinnati)
J.D. McKissic (vs. Dallas)
Miles Sanders (vs. New England)
Kalen Ballage (vs. Buffalo)
Target: Christian McCaffrey (vs. Atlanta) – I think just like Lamar Jackson at quarterback you almost just have to force in McCaffrey and build your roster around him no matter the cost. The amount of volume and production that he is seeing right now is ridiculous and it is almost equivalent to two or three players combined. Through nine games, McCaffrey is averaging 25.9 touches, 153.9 yards, and 1.6 touchdowns per game. It will be hard to ignore him this week against the Falcons at home regardless of his price tag.
Fade: Ezekiel Elliott (at Detroit) – Fade for now as the Vikings showed on Sunday night if you can focus on shutting down Elliott and take your chances of Prescott and the passing offense beating you that it is worth it. Elliott seems to keep having so-so type of games at a high DFS salary and just doesn’t have the production to pay it off.
Fade: Kalen Ballage (vs. Buffalo) – I am taking a hard stance on fading all Dolphins players for the rest of the season. They continue to send off their talented players with trades or injuries and the remaining product is one of the most watered-down offenses we have seen in a long time. The matchup against the Bills is one that does not benefit the Dolphins running game either.
