In a league that is dominated by high-powered passing offenses, only two running backs eclipsed the 100-yard mark in Week 1: Lamar Miller and DeAngelo Williams. Even with teams continuing to air it out, I fully expect multiple rushers to hit the century mark this week. Although in fantasy football, we don't discriminate against all-purpose yardage from the running back position, and we'll gladly take a few less yards for a touchdown or two... It's just the matter of pinpointing who is in the best position to succeed in terms of fake football.
As we head into the second week of NFL action, here are my top 50 running backs in standard leagues:
With so many injuries and situations to monitor, be sure to check back throughout the week as I'll continue to update my RB rankings until Sunday's 1:00 game slate kicks off.
Good luck this week!
