College Fantasy Football 2019 Running Back Rankings

When doing your research on college fantasy running backs for this upcoming season, there are two things you need to consider:

1. It is an incredibly deep crop of rushers this season, so don't be afraid to wait on one until later in your fantasy draft.

2. There does not seem to be general consensus among experts as to who the top running back is in CFF in 2019, and the league scoring settings must be considered if debating to select one in the first round.

Utilizing the scoring system below, Arizona State's Eno Benjamin gets the nod and is our projected No. 1 running back overall. Should you play in a league that does not have tally PPR, both Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor and Clemson's Travis Etienne are each worthy of first-round consideration.
