It’s been a slow afternoon at work, so I devoted a little time comparing how our 2 headed monster at RB ranks against some of the others. All numbers are pulled from ESPN and are hopefully accurate.
Monty and Gibbs have more total yardage than any other RB combination in the league at 1,436. Gibbs has a combined 771 yards and Monty has 665 yards. The next closest duo is Raheem Mostert and De’Von Achane of Miami with 849 and 532 yards respectively for 1,398. If you want to count Deebo Samuel as a RB, then he has combined with McCaffrey to produce 1,707 total yards. I don’t count Samuel as a RB because he consistently gets more touches as a receiver, but I can see an argument that he should be considered the RB2 in San Fran. McCaffrey blows everyone away individually with 1,189 total yards as it is.
No major revelations here. I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate how well our new backfield has played this year. I suspect Mostert and Achane would have the most yards if Achane hadn’t missed half the season, but I’m not interested in any more asterisks.
