What We Learned in 2018: Running Back

A look back at what we learned at the running back position in 2018

The 2018 fantasy season was full of ups and downs at running back, often connected to and even setting each other in motion. The turns of fortune made a top five pick worthless and late round pick a top five producer before the season even started. Fantasy players who heavily value elite running backs and those that spend lightly at the position both found reasons to double down on those strategies in 2019. Let’s review what we learned at the running back position.

Maybe don’t fade the holdout

Le’Veon Bell seemed to act and talk the same way he did in 2017 throughout the 2018 offseason, but when it came time to report, the results were very different. He didn’t play and took the holdout over the cliff, crushing teams that spent a barely discounted ADP (even after the threat of the holdout took on more gravity as the season approached), and taking teams that spend a pick on James Conner to the playoffs. With a labor situation looming in 2021, perhaps we could see another mutually assured destruction scenario or two in upcoming years.
