I’m pretty sure you’re going to be able to pay up for RB – especially if you’re running Summers at QB on Fanduel. I think Ervin is the elite play. Booker is elite too and is available on FD. There’s a couple of solid backs with less than ideal matchups – I think if you’re willing to roll the dice, you can give Cook and Collins a look if you feel like gambling on guys that might have slightly lower than normal usage because of the difficult matchups.

Tyler Ervin – San Jose State
Unreal type production from Ervin this season. Faces a UNLV team giving up 5 yards per carry and 190 yards per game.
Devontae Booker – Utah
Good matchup, and Utah might want to play ball control against a high powered Cal offense.
DeMario Richard – ASU
Kind of a sweet-spot price for Richard this week, so I’d expect fairly healthy usage. This season Coloroado has given up 4.6 yards per carry and 190 yards per game.
Jeremy McNichols – Boise State
McNichols is fairly steady 20 touches type player. Has some upside when he gets more involved in the passing game. CSU has given up 4.8 yards per carry and 193 yards per game.
Derrick Henry – Alabama
Not ideal matchup, but he’s a good player obv.
Keith Whitely – UNLV
Might be an interesting play, but risky. He’s really only about 15 touch RB, but this is a great matchup. San Jose State is terrible stopping the run, teams have averaged 5.4 yards per carry and 235 rushing yards per game. The team has also given up 16 rushing TDs!
