2019 Fantasy Football Week 1 Rankings

The Fantasy Six Pack Hour is back. We are back this week to continue our 2018 Fantasy Football previews.

A.J. Applegarth is not with us again this week as he welcomed his daughter into the world this past week. Congrats to him and his wife. We hope to have him back next week.

This week to help with the running back landscape is Fantasy Six Pack writer, Jonathan Chan. He wrote the position preview, bust and sleeper article for the running back position for the site. Be sure to follow him on Twitter @JChan_811.

Draft Strategy

Jonathan discusses how he is attacking the running back strategy in the majority of his drafts. Find out if he is following the trend of going running back early or if he will buck the trend.

Hot Topics/Questions

Jonathan helps me answer the following questions

  • Can David Johnson be the dominant player we saw in 2016?
  • How will Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram perform this season, especially with Ingrams four-game suspension?
  • Which running back is the one to own in Green Bay?
  • Forget what is going on with LeSean McCoy, if he does indeed play this season, can he be trusted as a reliable fantasy running back?

Bros in Different Area Codes

There was plenty of movement this offseason with running backs. Most notably we saw Jerick McKinnon and Dion Lewis sign elsewhere. Carlos Hyde, Isaiah Crowell, Doug Martin, C.J. Anderson, LeGarrette Blount, Frank Gore, and Jonathan Stewart all moved teams as well.

Jonathan tells us which back he likes best, which he is avoiding and more.


We have had some good rookie running backs in years past. However, this year might be the best we've had.

Between Saquon Barkley, Derrius Guice, Rashaad Penny, Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Ronald Jones II and more, it truly can be special.

Which of these rookies does Jonathan like? Who does he want to avoid? Find that out and more.

Reaches and Steals

We finish the running back preview with each of us giving one reach and one steal in drafts.
