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. We’re on to what for most of you will be the semifinals of your fantasy playoffs. If you’ve made it this far, you’ve probably got a pretty good running back or two on your roster already. If you need a one-week fill-in (maybe one of those RBs was Alvin Kamara, who despite expressing optimism about his availability is still no sure thing to play), then this is the article for you. We’ll go through some usage notes from last week, then take a close look at RB schedules across the league for the final two weeks.
