2019 Running Back (RB) Snap Counts

As the NFL continues to change, committee backfields have come more frequent. A popular committee over the last couple of seasons has been Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman. There are a few bell-cow back situations, like Le’Veon Bell, who sucks up 90% of the team snaps. It takes us back to the days where running backs were the workhorses of the league. While we have seen a little more of that, teams are adding two styles of backs to make up one. Freeman and Coleman are a good example of two running backs that complement each other, but cut into each other’s workload. Snap counts can help decipher the RB1 and RB2 on a team. Their snap counts can be dictated based on game flow, which is something to analyze when building trends for players. Running back snaps fluctuate at a high amount, and the weekly breakdown can help you view who is the most consistent target.
