Week 11 Fantasy Football Market Share Report: T.Y. Hilton Is Back in Business
Running Back Market Shares
1. Gus Edwards Introduces Himself
Gus Edwards introduced himself to the fantasy world to the tune of 17 carries for 115 yards and 1 touchdown. His emergence just happened to coincide with the first career start for Baltimore Ravens rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Despite 27 rushing attempts going to Jackson, Edwards saw 17 touches after seeing 16 combined for the entire season and a 31.4 percent rushing market share.
The incumbent Alex Collins, saw only seven touches, and Javorius Allen one. There’s a new offensive backfield in town, and Edwards should continue to see the majority share after his outburst on Sunday. Consider Edwards a risky but high-ceiling RB2 against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
2. Peyton Barber Carries the Load Again
With a struggling offense in the midst of upheaval, Peyton Barber's 18-carry, 106-yard and 1-touchdown day was all the more impressive.
Barber’s grasp of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' running back job has been tenuous to say the least this season. But the time to get hot is now. And Barber is set for a tasty Week 12 matchup, with nobody in the way of his strong market share.
Since Week 6, Barber has seen 15.6 touches, which culminated in a 20-touch Week 11 effort. His highest touch count of the season was good enough for a 60 percent market share of Tampa Bay's rushes.
Barber also saw the only two running back targets in the passing game. He is a back-end RB2 in a nice matchup versus the San Francisco 49ers this coming week.
