Leonard Fournette, Tampa Bay Buccaneers | 44.1 Fantasy Points
Even though Jonathan Taylor played with his Indianapolis Colts against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, another running back came up strong — Leonard Fournette.
Three rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown set career bests for Fournette. With this performance, Fournette has once again underlined his status as the lead back for the Buccaneers.
Joe Mixon, Cincinnati Bengals | 32.3 Fantasy Points
28 rushes for 165 yards and two touchdowns set Joe Mixon's season-best. This could have been even better had he not scored negative yards on his two receptions. Still, six touchdowns in the last three games make Mixon an elite running back.
Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco 49ers | 27.8 Fantasy Points
The San Francisco 49ers rookie had his best performance of the season in the game against the Minnesota Vikings. Elijah Mitchell carried the ball 27 times for 133 yards and a touchdown.
In addition, he caught five of his six targets for 35 yards. 168 scrimmage yards thus naturally mark his career-best as well.
Aaron Jones, Green Bay Packers | 2.3 Fantasy Points
Aaron Jones had to sit out last week against the Minnesota Vikings due to a knee injury. While Jones did return against the Los Angeles Rams, he was unable to match his pre-injury performance. He ended up with 10 carries for just 23 yards.
Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns | 5.9 Fantasy Points
The Cleveland Browns offense is as easy to figure out as multiplication tables. With a quarterback that has been banged up for weeks, the focus is heavily on the running game.
This could be stopped perfectly by the Baltimore Ravens and Nick Chubb only came to eight carries for 16 yards - his weakest performance of the season so far.
Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers | 6.7 Fantasy Points
Najee Harris suffered from a disastrous game script for the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Cincinnati Bengals. As a result, Harris managed just 23 rushing yards on eight carries and 14 receiving yards on three receptions. He did not score a touchdown.
