1

Detroit Lions RB Adrian Peterson (21.3% ESPN Ownership)

After being dropped by Washington, Peterson was immediately picked up by the Lions. Peterson was used heavily on Sunday, carrying the ball 14 times for 93 yards, and adding 3 catches for 21 yards. He scored 11.4 fantasy points on those touches, good for 20th among running backs in standard leagues for week 1. He'll continue to have a role in the Lions offense, moving forward, and is a worthy addition.

2

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (7.9% ESPN Ownership)

Most fantasy owners expected Cam Akers to step into the starting running back job, but Brown was far more effective in week 1. He turned 18 carries into 79 yards and two touchdowns and finished the fantasy week with the fourth-most points among all running backs. Brown should be added in all leagues after his week 1 performance, especially considering his role within a run-heavy offense.
