Fantasy Football Week 11 RB Rankings: Salvon Ahmed Emerges, McCaffrey Out Again?

Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings Week 11

Getty Salvon Ahmed #26 of the Miami Dolphins.

Welcome to our Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings for Week 11 of the 2020 NFL regular season. This week we welcome back Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley and Clyde Edwards-Helaire from byes. Christian McCaffrey looks unlikely to suit up once again. Plus, are we witnessing a change of the guards in the Miami backfield? Let’s take a look.

Running Back Outlook Week 11

Christian McCaffrey is unlikely to play in Week 11 due to a lingering shoulder injury, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. This means more Mike Davis (RB19) in the Panthers backfield. From Week 3 through Week 5, only Alvin Kamara averaged more ppg than Davis (25.0) from the RB position. However, since then, Davis has seen his fantasy star not only dim but essentially disintegrate.  Davis has failed to eclipse 8.7 points in four consecutive games.

Furthermore, his QB Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a knee injury, putting his playing status up in the air against Detroit. With that said, there’s still a glimmer of hope. Three of the past four starting RBs to face off against the Lions have had multi-TD outings.

While I’m not ready to anoint Salvon Ahmed (RB16) the new RB1 in Miami, let’s just say as a Myles Gaskin owner, I’m closely monitoring. Ahmed carried the ball 21 times in Week 10, a number that Gaskin has exceeded just once over his 14-game career. Ahmed not only manned 84 percent of the team’s rushing attempts in Week 10, he also ran 15 pass routes, per John Daigle of Rotoworld. No other Dolphins RB logged a single route on the evening.

Ahmed will look to keep his production going in Week 11 against a Denver Broncos team that was just shredded by not one, but two Las Vegas Raiders RBs. Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker each recorded at least 80 rushing yards, a 5.0 ypc average and two TDs apiece vs. Denver. Over the last three weeks, the Broncos have allowed the third-most points and rushing yards to the position, as well as three red zone targets (t-2nd-most in NFL).
