Week 1 Running Back Snap Shares and Usage for NFL DFS + Fantasy Football

Avatar

Published

on

Zach Brunner takes a look back at NFL Week 1 and notes running back snap shares and usage, using this to project fantasy football value.

In football, opportunity is everything. These players are fighting for their opportunity to play in the NFL, and we as fantasy owners are basing much of our perceived value of these players on the amount of opportunity they are given. This opportunity, of course, can often be measured by snaps and what the player is doing on these snaps. Let’s take a look back at NFL Week 1 at each team’s running back snap shares and usage, using this as a basis of measuring current and future value.

The following will go game by game in NFL Week 1, making note of the running back snap shares and usage from each team’s backfield. While we are not specifically looking at stats like yards and touchdowns, we can assume opportunity will lead to productivity more often than not.
