Hidden Stat Line: Week 10 Backfield Breakdown

Hidden Stat Line: Week 10 Backfield Breakdown

This article is part of our Hidden Stat Line series.

Week 9 was noteworthy for the number of backfields utilizing a committee, with seven different teams splitting work between three running backs. Week 10 has been a different story, as four of the committee teams from last weekend — Detroit, Miami, Seattle, NY Giants — switched up their approach to hone in on a clear lead runner Sunday afternoon.

D'Andre Swift's three-down workload was arguably the biggest fantasy story of the weekend, and we also saw the likes of Kalen Ballage and Salvon Ahmed handling huge roles. Ballage and Ahmed may only be short-term commodities, but both happen to have favorable matchups around the corner in Week 11 (the former faces the Jets, while the latter faces the Broncos).
