2019 Target-Avoid Fantasy Football Running Backs

Outlining the running backs to target and avoid in fantasy football drafts in 2019

The NFL preseason is in full force and the 2019 fantasy football season is right around the corner. One of the big advantages of Footballguys.com is a large database of staff rankings. This series looks at the difference between the collaborative Footballguys staff rankings and myfantasyleague.com positional ADP (Average Draft Position) at the skill positions. In this edition: running backs.


Joe Mixon

  • RB7 Ranking
  • RB11 ADP
  • Why: Mixon was RB11 in aWORP (Adjusted Wins Over Replacement Player, which accounts for start rate in fantasy leagues as well) and is priced at his finish with his positional ADP. Mixon enters Year 3 with an elite breakout season in play as a back with high-level receiving upside plus double-digit touchdowns as his upside. A.J. Green's injury to begin the season only aids Mixon's offensive involvement.
