The 2020 season is proving to be full of hard decisions in selecting the right waiver wire claims and knowing when to drop a player.

The running backs position continues to take hits from key injuries flipping the table on some running back committees. This could be the first time we see Le’Veon Bell in action as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs; D’Andre Swift could become a feature back. Also, Christian McCaffrey could come back at any time now.
So anything can happen. Start the wrong guy and it could be the difference of 20-30 points. Let’s see which ones do NOT look good for Week 7.
Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Talk about your rigid defenses, the Bucs are allowing a league-low 48.5 rushing yards per game. Melvin Gordon, Alvin Tamara, David Montgomery, and Aaron Jones were all held under 30 yards rushing. To hold that caliber of talent to under that minuscule amount of rushing yards is a great achievement by a defense.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that backs haven’t gotten fantasy points as four different backs have scored six touchdowns. But there’s certainly a ceiling on how big a day Jacobs can have when this defense is playing this well.
