2022 Running Back (RB) Red Zone Receptions

Running back red zone catches are one of less frequent stats in the game, but are still notable with some of these backs being a bigger part of the passing game. You can see that by no running back climbing over 1.5 red zone catches per game this season. The touches are more of an indicator for usage within the red zone among running backs in correlation to fantasy points. There are some exceptions, like the Saints have used both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara in a heavy red zone role with the passing game, and more so than any other team. If you are pairing up matchups against teams that struggle in the passing game, then red zone running backs used in the passing game are threats to consider. While you may see a lot of zeros and ones in this chart, this can be useful for finding that potential touchdown threat in the red zone.
