Fantasy football owners are looking for last-minute sleepers at the running back position in the fantasy playoffs, and while nobody can give an owner the boost Derrick Henry did, there are still a few solid options that may be available.
One of these running backs could be the difference between a win and a loss as the fantasy football playoffs get underway.
Derrick Henry set the fantasy football world ablaze to begin Week 14, trampling the Jacksonville Jaguars defense in a 30-9 blowout win on Thursday Night Football that helps push the Tennessee Titans one step closer to another playoff appearance. It was a career performance from Henry, who put up 238 rushing yards and four touchdowns, including a historic 99-yard score.
Only a few fantasy owners were lucky enough to take advantage of Henry’s monster day, and it’s impossible to expect anyone else to score that many points in Week 14 (47.8).
However, there are some sleepers worth looking at this week, especially with key starters like Matt Breida, Melvin Gordon, and Kerryon Johnson out with injuries.
In Week 13, we saw Chicago Bears standout Tarik Cohen catch 12 passes for 156 yards – and throw a touchdown – to finish as fantasy’s highest-scoring back, with Arizona Cardinals backup Chase Edmonds shocking everyone en route to a two-touchdown, 20-point display.
There are sleepers everywhere, and here’s a look at 10 possible sleepers at the running back position for Week 14.
