Philadelphia Eagles RB Josh Adams
Earlier this season, fantasy football analysts were pounding the drum incessantly for Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones, who consistently averaged six yards per carry, only to lose touches to Jamaal Williams for some frustrating reason.
It took Packers head coach Mike McCarthy far too long to finally ride Jones, who has now become one of fantasy footballs biggest stars. Hopefully, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is quicker to the punch with running back Josh Adams, because he seems like the obvious answer to what ails the Eagles offense on the ground.
Without Frank Reich on the coaching staff, the Eagles offense has struggled after being a revelation in their Super Bowl-winning 2017 campaign. Adams, however, has emerged as a bright spot, and he is coming off of his best game of the season with 53 rushing yards on seven carries with a touchdown to boot.
Adams needs to have at least double those carries. While Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement aren’t necessarily bad players as Adams’s backup, they clearly don’t offer the upside that Adams, who has averaged 6.1 yards per carry this season, does.
An undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, Adams needs to be owned in all leagues and legitimately looks like the most dangerous player in the Eagles offense, besides tight end Zach Ertz, right now.
