Jonathan Ward
Running BackRB
Central Michigan Chippewas
2019 Fantasy Outlook
After topping 1,000 yards with 10 touchdowns in 2017 and catching 48 passes, Ward missed a few games due to injury last year and fell to the background in the Chippewas' backfield mix (76 carries for 212 yards and one touchdown, eight catches for 41 yards). Romello Ross and Kumehnnu Gwilly remain in the mix this year, in what looks to be a three-man committee to frustrate fantasy owners looking for a deep sleeper. Read Past Outlooks
Tops 160 total yards vs. NM State

October 12, 2019
Ward had 18 carries for 131 yards with a 75-yard touchdown, along with four catches for 36 yards, against New Mexico State on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Ward has broken a long touchdown run in each of the last two games, with four total touchdowns in that span. He will look to make it four straight 100-yard rushing games next week against Bowling Green.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Ward's phenomenal end to the season, highlighted by 71 carries for 528 yards and five scores in four November games, gives a glimpse at what he can do as the featured back. He also has very little competition for carries; no other CMU back had more than 54 rushes last year and neither of the other 50-plus-carry rushers averaged 4.0 YPC. Ward has speed unlike most other MAC backs with an array of moves to make defenders look foolish, and he'll be running behind an experienced line. His combination of skill and team context makes him a worthwhile target.
