He was so impressive in Week 1 that he's the favorite for most running back fantasy points in Week 2.
Odds to Score Most #NFL @FanDuel Fantasy Points by RB Position in Week 2 via @FDSportsbook— TheDuel (@TheDuelSports) September 14, 2018
Alvin Kamara +400
Todd Gurley +500
David Johnson +550
Melvin Gordon +750
Ezekiel Elliott +1000
Kareem Hunt +1400
Saquon Barkley +1400
Dalvin Cook +1600
James Connor +2500
Kamara might be the favorite, but Gurley is close behind after his 108 yards rushing, 39 yards receiving and a touchdown in Monday's game against the Raiders. Kamara and the Saints take on the Cleveland Browns this week while Gurley matches up with the Arizona Cardinals, who just got gashed by Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.
There are plenty of other big names here too. Johnson will be on the opposite sideline of Gurley on Sunday; Melvin Gordon gets to run all over the Buffalo Bills; and Elliott will look to improve off a poor Week 1 against the Giants on Sunday night. Meanwhile, Week 1 standout James Conner is listed at +2500, despite putting up 135 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns with a similarly nice matchup against the Chiefs defense this week.
Pretty much any name on that list could finish the week as the running back fantasy points leader, so it might just be time to go with your gut and hope for the best.
