Running Back (RB) Rush Attempts 2020-21

Volume is everything when it comes to running backs, even if they have subpar stats to go with it. This year has been a focal point for running backs with getting bigger touches, as we have five running backs averaging over 20 rushing attempts per game. There should be no surprise that they also sit high in fantasy scoring on a week-to-week basis. Rush% is a good column to show off their percentage of the team rushing attempts. This helps separate the bell-cow backs from the committee backfields that are so often frowned upon. When injuries occur, it is easy to spot the amount of production that will be up for grabs by the next in line. We have seen that a few times already this year, which is something that happens annually. Breaking things down based on rushing attempts is quick and simple, which makes finding the top used backs a breeze.
