Week 7 Leaders

No stat correlates more closely with Fantasy scoring at the RB position than snap rate.

A player's route involvement rate simply represents the percentage of the team's total dropbacks on which that player ran a route. So, the running backs listed above ran a route on at least 56 percent of their team's dropbacks. Running routes is the first step towards drawing targets, which is key to unlocking Fantasy upside at the RB position.

Let's dig into the full data on Week 7 usage rates.

So which running backs were leaned on in the red zone in Week 7? And what do you need to know about how every running back was used in the passing game this past week? ...
