Since 1950, only eight running backs have had more non-PPR fantasy points through five games: Eric Dickerson (132.7), Billy Sims (112.6), Adrian Peterson (106.2), Marcus Allen (106.2), Gale Sayers (104.4), Kareem Hunt (99.9, though he plays his fifth game on Sunday Night Football), Marshall Faulk (99.3) and Joe Cribbs (97.1). Nine have had more using PPR scoring: Dickerson (150.7), Allen (127.2), Sims (123.6), Sayers (119.4), Cribbs (119.1), Faulk (116.3), Peterson (116.2), Hunt (112.9, pending Sunday night’s game) and Curt Warner (110.1).
