Wildcard Round vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Kenneth Dixon had some big plays against the Browns, helping him gain 117 yards on 12 carries in the season finale. Dixon averages 11 touches per game this year, making him a quality change-of-pace option in deeper fantasy leagues. His upside is limited by a crowded backfield however, making him risky to trust in any given week.
Dixon managed only 48 yards from scrimmage against the Chargers just two weeks ago, but Los Angeles allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs this year, giving him a little upside in deep formats. In most leagues however, with quality running backs available throughout the wildcard round, Dixon should be considered a lower-tier option. His workload is too uncertain to bank on.
