Running Back Usage Report: Week 4

NFL depth charts are always changing, whether it’s due to injuries, coaching decisions, or performance-related issues. The running back position, in particular, can be tough to stay on top of throughout the season, as the vast majority of teams have gone with some sort of committee approach, featuring two and sometimes even three backs.

Below is a breakdown of each team’s backfield to help us determine offenses that are using a single workhorse, committees, and situations to avoid for fantasy. I’ll use this space each week to track the numbers and provide some thoughts.

All snap counts and touches are compiled from Pro Football Focus and Pro Football Reference. Opportunities refers to the running back’s combined carries and targets.

ARIZONA CARDINALS

James Conner (Week 1: 72% snaps, 15 opportunities; Week 2: 21%, 11; Week 3: 60%, 18; Week 4: 66%, 18)

Eno Benjamin (Week 1: 34% snaps, 7 opportunities; Week 2: 43%, 12; Week 3: 27%, 9; Week 4: 14%, 6)

Darrel Williams (Week 1: DNP; Week 2: 46% snaps, 11 opportunities; Week 3: 17%, 2; Week 4: 21%, 5)

Red-Zone Carries: Conner (7), Benjamin (5), Kyler Murray (4), Williams (1)

Inside-The-Five Carries: Conner (3), Murray (2), Williams (1)

Pass Routes: Conner (77), Benjamin (48), Williams (38)

Notes: Conner remains a buy-low based on his dominating playing time and backfield touches, but it’s pretty evident he’s not going to reach his peak from last year. This offense just seems broken, and Conner isn’t getting the amount of looks at the goal line and therefore not converting them at the rate he did in 2021. Conner is still an every-week RB2.

ATLANTA FALCONS

Cordarrelle Patterson (Week 1: 65% snaps, 27 opportunities; Week 2: 59%, 11; Week 3: 61%, 18; Week 4: 29%, 9)

Tyler Allgeier (Week 1: DNP; Week 2: 31% snaps, 10 opportunities; Week 3: 37%, 7; Week 4: 44%, 11)

Caleb Huntley (Week 4: 22% snaps, 10 opportunities)

Red-Zone Carries: Patterson (10), Marcus Mariota (8), Allgeier (4), Huntley (4)
