Running Back Outlook Week 7

Sorry Leonard Fournette truthers, the Buccaneers backfield officially belongs to Ronald Jones (RB7). While Fournette should see some touches once back to full strength, Tampa would simply be idiotic to eat into Jones’ touches after the former USC standout has ripped off three consecutive 100-plus yard performances.

Seemingly avoidable in most leagues just a month ago, Jones has suddenly catapulted himself into a must-start, ranking as the RB3 in fantasy since Week 4 (20.1 ppg). Not to mention he’s touched the ball a hefty 71 times over that span.

If that wasn’t enough to sell you on RoJo, the fact that his opponents, the Las Vegas Raiders, have allowed an opposing RB to score two-plus TDs on three separate occasions this season should do the trick.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen has reported that the Eagles expect to be without Miles Sanders this Thursday night due to a knee injury. If this holds true expect Boston Scott (RB21) to lead the charge in Philly’s backfield, with Corey Clement (RB44) sprinkled in here and there. Scott disappointed in his lone start this season, but does have upside in PPR formats. Scott will take on a New York Giants defense who, while stingy, did allow 10 receptions to Washington RBs last week.
