2019-2020 Running Back (RB) Red Zone Touches

Red zone touches for running backs correlate strongly with scoring touchdowns, as you can see when sorting by averages. Le’Veon Bell and Todd Gurley both were among the tops in red zone touches, which translated to scoring double-digit touchdowns. Red zone touches create scoring opportunities, and in the grand scheme of things volume and opportunity is what you want to look for, and then comes looking for efficiency. One of the more frustrating parts of fantasy football is the red zone backs that takeaway from the backs who march it all the way down the field. Keep an eye out for those backs like LeGarrette Blount who make their living inside the ten. The grid style here will showcase some potential changes within teams if injuries occur, or backs start to struggle. This is an important area to find scoring production for running backs, so the more opportunity the more chance to score.
