Running Back (RB) Receptions 2020-2021

A breed of running backs came about over the last seven-eight years or so, racking up more receptions than a normal running back would. There are over ten running backs averaging over four catches per game so far this season, and there is actually a high amount of touchdown production coming with them. Christian McCaffrey has been the standout PPR back already, averaging the highest receptions per game. We don’t always see starting running backs on this list, as guys like Alvin Kamara, Duke Johnson, and Andre Ellington have worked in unison with their starters. The third down back role has been crucial for offenses, and has been crucial for us in the fantasy world. We need to keep track of who gets the third down work and passing-game work, because it isn’t always who you think. That is our job here, and everything from weekly receptions to touchdowns is covered.
