Sitting all the Chiefs running backs may be a wise fantasy football move for Week 1, says Neil Greenberg, with the help of TruMedia’s expected-points model:
LeSean McCoy, Damien Williams and Darwin Thompson, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: We don’t know which of these three running backs will get the majority of the workload in Week 1, but we do know that all three will be going up against a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that is expected to be the 11th best of 2019. Jacksonville’s defensive front stopped 22% of rushers at or behind the line of scrimmage in 2018 (the league average was 19%) and allowed eight fewer points per 100 rushing plays against than you would expect after taking into account the down, distance and field position of each play, per TruMedia. Only the Houston Texans (9.6 points saved per 100 rushing plays) were better at preventing points on the ground last season.
