Here are my top five fantasy running backs going into the 2019-2020 NFL season.
5.Alvin Kamara,New Orleans Saints
Kamara is dangerous both out of the backfield and in the slot. Kamara is a very productive player that will make you happy that you drafted him in your fantasy league.
4.Melvin Gordon,Los Angeles Chargers
Gordon has the second most rushing touchdowns over the past three seasons (Todd Gurley only has more). Despite being on contract holdout, if Gordon is playing, he will be a fantasy star again in 2019-2020.
3.Christian McCaffrey,Carolina Panthers
The former Stanford standout has continued his success in the NFL. McCaffrey has given QB Cam Newton another option in the passing game and has not let up running the football.
2.Saquon Barkley,New York Giants
These top two running backs are like 1A and 1B. Barkley led all NFL running backs in scrimmage yards in his rookie season and will be a fantasy star for years to come. Barkley is a young guy that will keep New York football watchable as he continues to grow as a player.
1.Ezekiel Elliott,Dallas Cowboys
Zeke became a pass target in 2018-19, being targeted ninety-five times last season. Elliott’s rushing numbers should improve from last season, making him the sure fire top back headed into the 2019-2020 season.
