Ultimate Zero RB Watchlist: NFC Week 11

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. Week 10 brought with it a few unfortunate injuries. However, these injuries have potentially opened up pathways to playing time for a few of our favorite backups. Some other backfields have interesting usage changes worth noting as well. I’ll go through each of these situations in detail to give you some early guidance on how to approach them as we near the fantasy playoffs. For ease of use, I’ve broken the data tables out into two—one for Week 10, and one for the entire season. Find them at the end of the article.
