Running Back Rankings Week 4

Brees-1024x638 Running Back Rankings Week 4

DraftKings Start of the Week
Mark Ingram – NO @ SD ($5,900)

Ingram is yet to score a rushing TD this season, and he’s yet to receive over 15 carries in a game, I get it. He’s also averaging 4.4 yards per carry, the Saints offensive line has played well, and is facing a Chargers defense which has allowed the 9th most fantasy points to opposing RBs. He’s also been involved in the passing game, which bodes well against a Chargers defense allowing an average of 76 receiving yards to opposing RBs. Oh, and in the Saints two games home games, they’ve averaged 33 points, and 400 passing yards. In their one game outside of the dome, they put up 13 points, and 263 passing yards. We’ll see if that trend continues, but either way, I like the value here on Ingram. He’s due for a big day.

Sit of the Week
Christine Michael – SEA @ NYJ

Don’t let last week’s 20 carry, 106 yard, 2 TD game fool you into starting Michael this week. The 49ers defense was on the field for 36 mins, 60% of the game, and I feel that had more to do with his performance than any other factor. Seattle’s offensive line is still struggling, and the Jets defensive line isn’t. They’ve allowed 3.3 yards per carry, and the 4th fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs.
