Target Karlos Williams for your playoff run

This is the second part of my article that ran last weekend, identifying which players have a strong schedule in the fantasy playoffs. This week I’m looking at the running backs, who might be the most important factor in your quest for a title. With so many injuries to the top runners, the quality has thinned out considerably and you’ll inevitably be stuck playing a guy you don’t have total confidence in. That’s why an external factor, such as opposition run defense, is important to consider when making roster decisions.

Before we get into that, however, a quick review of some articles you may have missed during the week:

Tyler Loechner’s trade value chart suggests there is value in the few elite tight end options and that they are worth pursuing. Michael Tagliere lists three buys and three sells, while Mike Clay uncovers some hidden regression candidates with his weekly OTD article.

Turning our attention to the running backs, we have a number of players that face promising playoff schedules.

    Would have been nice to have an article like this out before most league trade deadlines (typically 11/25 or earlier). Oh well.
