Are you ready for a thrilling list of RBs who are going to win you a 2020 fantasy football championship?!?
Well, sorry. That’s not what you’re about to find.
What you will find below, though, is a group of RBs with chances to play prominent receiving roles -- the kind that leave you surprised at the end of the season by just how high they finished.
Duke Johnson disappointed vs. expectation in 2019, but his 44-410-3 receiving line pushed him to RB35 in PPR, despite Johnson ranking just 49th among RBs in carries.
Royce Freeman delivered 4 half-PPR starter weeks and topped 11 PPR points 7 times thanks largely to his 43 receptions. He caught 4+ passes in 7 contests.
James White has finished 23rd and 7th among PPR backs the past 2 years, despite not reaching 100 carries in either campaign.
None of those 3 guys shows up in the list below. But you can find similar players with receiving profiles that present upside well beyond their draft prices.
Matt Breida, Dolphins
ADP: 8.10 (RB43)
