Running Backs Who Helped Managers Reach The Semi-Finals
It was produce-or-go-home and these running backs, some known, and some who were rookies or failed to produce for most of the season, came through for fantasy managers during the first week of the playoffs.
Derrick Henry produces in December. Period. He was given 26 carries against the Jaguars and he destroyed them, rushing for 215 yards and 2 touchdowns while adding 2 receptions for 7 yards. He finished the day with 35.2 fantasy points which were his third-best performance of the year. Fantasy managers need this to continue with hopes of a championship.
