Rakeem Boyd
Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Boyd was arguably the lone bright spot for Arkansas in 2019, rushing for 1,133 yards and eight touchdowns on 184 carries. He's back for his senior year and will be playing in a revamped offense under coach Sam Pittman and offensive coordinator Kendal Briles. Pittman figures to get the offensive line in gear and Briles is an accomplished play caller and designer, so things are looking up for Boyd compared to last season when he still managed to post some of the best numbers in the SEC.

Coming back for senior season
December 24, 2019
Boyd announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he'll return to Arkansas for his senior season.
ANALYSIS
Boyd could have entered the 2020 NFL Draft and may have been a mid-round selection, but a new coaching staff and the potential for an improved offense was enough for him to play for the Hogs for one more year. He will be one of the top backs in the SEC for fantasy purposes in 2020 after racking up 1,133 yards and eight touchdowns for an otherwise anemic Arkansas offense in 2019.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Boyd was one of the few silver linings for the Razorbacks in what was an absolutely abysmal 2018 campaign. Boyd seized the opportunity at running back due to injuries, averaging six yards per carry en route to 734 yards on the ground to lead the squad. Devwah Whaley and Chase Hayden should both be back and healthy for the 2019 season, though, meaning competition could be fierce for touches. However, the quarterback position should be in much more capable hands under the direction of graduate transfer Ben Hicks, so the running game may find a bit more room to breathe. It remains to be seen how the carries will be divvied up, but Boyd figures to remain in the mix in some way, shape or form.
