Kenneth Farrow Fantasy Football Profile

Melvin Gordon could miss Week 15 with a hip sprain and a knee sprain.

That’s why Fantasy Football players are asking, “Who is Kennth Farrow?”

Farrow is a 5-foot-10, 220-pound rookie who played his college ball at Houston. He was undrafted, and it was a long road for him to get this backup role in 2016. It took injuries to Danny WoodheadBrandon Oliver, Dexter McCluster, and Gordon to get a role.

Now, he has a role during the most important times of the Fantasy Football playoffs.

He was a capable dual-threat back during his time at Houston.

Season Rushing Yards Rushing TDs Receptions Receiving Yards Receiving TDs
2012 466 2 20 165 1
2013 514 6 24 113 1
2014 1,042 14 20 149 1
2015 958 12 10 119 0

At his Pro Day, he recorded a 40-yard dash time of 4.59. He also put up 23 bench reps.

When he was called into action in Week 14, Farrow carried the ball 16 times for 55 rushing yards. He had a 3.4 YPC average, and he caught six passes for 23 yards. However, those six receptions inflated his stats in PPR leagues.

As a receiver, he only averaged 1.3 Fantasy points per catch.

But the good news for Week 15 is the San Diego Chargers will play the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders are allowing the 10th-most Fantasy points per game to running backs this season.

According to the San Diego Tribune, the Chargers could use both Farrow and Ronnie Hillman in a committee. Hillman was claimed off of waivers on Nov. 22, but he’s yet to see the field as a Charger.
