Backfield Breakdown: Week 6 Recap & Week 7 Sleepers

Backfield Breakdown: Week 6 Recap & Week 7 Sleepers

This article is part of our Backfield Breakdown series.

I had an issue with a stat provider this week, so our leaderboards and game-by-game breakdowns look a little different from usual. Apart from that, it's the same deal as ever, including recommendations for adds, drops and sleepers. Week 7 should be messy, to say the least, with four top running backs now on injured reserve and six teams going on bye.
