It was a brutal week at the running back position. Todd Gurley, Matt Forte, Wendell Smallwood, Mark Ingram, Rashad Jennings, Kenneth Dixon, James Starks, Tim Hightower, Dion Lewis, and Theo Riddick all recorded fewer than five expected points in the running game (ruEP).

Miller was especially poor with -4.4 rushing fantasy points over expectation (ruFPOE). Let’s take a look at the news and usage surrounding fantasy-relevant backfields as we move into the playoffs.
