Kenneth Walker III Scores Twice Against Detroit

Monday, September 18, 6:24 AM

Kenneth Walker III led the Seattle Seahawks running back room in touches once again, albeit without his trademark efficiency. Walker carried the ball 17 times for 43 yards and caught one pass for another 11 yards in Seattle's Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions. His 2.5 yards per carry on Sunday pales in comparison to the 4.6 YPC he posted in his rookie season last year, but two of his rushing attempts resulted in a touchdown. Seattle's other active running backs, Zach Charbonnet and DeeJay Dallas, combined for just five carries. Walker seems to have a firm grip on his place at the top of the Seahawks' depth chart. He will face the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.

James Cook Churns Out 159 Yards In Week 2 Rout

Monday, September 18, 1:32 AM

Buffalo Bills running back James Cook rushed 17 times for 123 yards with four receptions for 36 yards in the Sunday's 38-10 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. As expected, the 23-year-old started the contest but continued to miss out on quite a few high-value touches despite clearly running as the most explosive backfield option. Latavius Murray punched it in for a touchdown on Buffalo's first-quarter drive while Damien Harris hit paydirt on a one-yard plunge in the final period. Cook surely had a big day, but it could have been a monster one with the Bills marching up and down the field early and often. If this form of usage persists, the dynamic Cook could remain relegated to mid-tier RB2 territory for however long he doesn't seize the bulk of the red zone work. Nevertheless, he will be a good bet for 15+ touches in Week 3's visit with the Washington Commanders, where Buffalo could play with a lead once again.
