2019 Running Back (RB) Red Zone Rushes

For a running back, getting touches inside the red zone is an important factor in scoring touchdowns, or generating fantasy points. A starting running back who sees touches between the 20’s may not see touches inside the red zone. Bigger goal-line backs will take over that role, leading to more touchdowns than the possible starting back. With touchdowns being the ultimate goal, finding backs who rack up red zone rushing attempts is where we need to start. We can look at it on a week-to-week basis, a weekly average, or in a season total. Backs who see over two red zone attempts a week will often be at the top of the charts for touchdowns. Anything higher, you are looking at elite backs in elite offenses. Anything less, you are looking at backs involved in poorer offenses, or are not build to be a goal-line back.
