Week 2 Running Back Rankings: Tier 3

Week 2 Running Back Rankings - Clyde Edwards-Helaire
  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire vs. Los Angeles Chargers
  • Darrell Henderson Jr. vs. Atlanta Falcons – Week 1 usage was tops in the league, but I am not convinced we see the touch gap shrink between Henderson and Akers in week 2. It is a juicy matchup and Henderson is the only one of the two startable this week, but I am not as excited as consensus.
