Welcome to the Ultimate Zero RB Watchlist. The goal of this piece is to help you find RB targets for your Zero-RB teams before anyone else even knows about them. We know that startable RB weeks can come from almost anywhere in the NFL. By being aware of depth charts that could yield surprising weekly starters, we put ourselves in position to grab the next breakout RB before he breaks out. We’ll take a close look at depth charts around the league in order to find the next-man-up situations that nobody is talking about . . . yet. Throughout the season we’ll monitor playing time and usage to identify exploitable, under-the-radar trends that have the potential to pay off with league-winning upside. Be sure to check out Cort Smith’s companion piece on the AFC. This week, we’re once again going to focus on the most interesting and actionable situations in the NFC. There have been a few notable changes in playing time and workload distribution around the league, so we’ll take an in-depth look at the backfields most affected by these sorts of changes. Snap shares, expected points, and PPR points for Week 9 and for the 2017 season appear in a table at the bottom of the article.
