Running Back Edmonton Eskimos

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Van rushed seven times for 29 yards and a touchdown, posted three receptions for 11 yards and another score, tallied 50 yards on three punt returns and compiled 126 yards on five kickoff returns in Saturday's 34-26 loss to the Argonauts.
Van was making his return after a six-game stay on the injured list due to a shoulder ailment and had an immediate impact. The 26-year-old tailback split backfield work with Pascal Lochard, who saw five carries. However, it was also encouraging to see him jump right back into full-time return duties, which served as a sizable supplement to his overall fantasy production. Van should see more work in Week 15 against the Blue Bombers if the game script allows, and a bye week in Week 14 should provide him with more time to reintegrate into the Eskimos' offense.
