Fantasy Check

Projection vs. Production: Week 2 RBs


You've seen the quarterbacks PvP list, so now it's on to running backs. As usual our projections come from the aggregate rankings on Fantasy Football Nerd.

As you may have guessed, Frank Gore and Chris Johnson far exceeded expectations, while Matt Forte continues to disappoint.

Right now Forte has to be the leading candidate for fantasy bust of the season, considering his average draft position was fourth overall as generated by Fantasy Football Calculator.

You'll notice Forte isn't on this list because he was rated the 39th best running back option this week with a projected eight points. He wasn't even that good, finishing with just five fantasy points in a standard-scoring format.
