RosterWatch Week 6 RB Touchdown Dependency
Byron Lambert, Rosterwatch.com
Interestingly, heading into Week 6, most of the Top 20 running backs are producing touchdowns at a relatively average pace. Average touchdown dependency metrics indicate that current levels of production are likely to continue.
The more touchdown dependent a player, the more likely we are to see a future reduction in their fantasy outputs. It may also be an indicator of week-to-week inconsistency. The opposite holds true for non-touchdown dependent players. They are likely to continue producing at their current levels – or possibly even increase.
