When people say, this running back has receiving upside, and that one doesn't.

What does that mean to me?

People say I'm low on Nick Chubb. I projected out his 2020 workload for 17 games and:

275 carries. 1,400 yards. 14 TDs. 25 catches. 200 receiving yards. 0 Rec TDs. 4 Fumbles. 261 fantasy points.

That seems good, however I can see a lot of other backs passing that up.
Here's what I think of DeAndre Swift, getting used like Alvin Kamara/Austin Ekeler:

200 carries. 1,000 rushing yards. 10 Rush TDs. 65 catches. 500 receiving yards. 4 receiving TDs. 4 Fumbles. 291 fantasy points.

30 more points than Chubb. More catches, and more receiving yards

Derrick Henry is a very good running back who is getting drafted No. 3 overall in most PPR drafts.

That is way too high.

Derrick Henry is coming off of a 2,000+ yard season. That's a huge season and will likely stand as the best season of his career. Why? Let's take a look at every other previous 2,000 yards rusher and what the season after their 2,000 yard season looked like.
1973 O.J. Simpson. 2,003 Yards. - in 14 games.

1974 O.J. Simpson. 1,125 Yards.

Not much changed for Simpson from one year to the next, he wasn't as efficient and didn't get as many carries. The few years after he did well again though.
