College Fantasy Football 2020 Running Back Rankings

It should come as no surprise that Oklahoma State's Chuba Hubbard is the No. 1 college fantasy running back is entering 2020. The Cowboys star led the nation last season with 2,094 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns on a whopping 328 carries. There are truly only two choices at the top of any CFF draft this year — if Justin Fields goes first overall, Hubbard is the next man up, and vice versa.

Any college fantasy draft this season truly starts at pick No. 3, and if you decide running back is the direction to go, you have three options from which to choose from after Hubbard — Memphis' Kenneth Gainwell, Clemson's Travis Etienne, and Buffalo's Jaret Patterson. I've personally maintained throughout the offseason that you are splitting hairs between the trio in terms of a pecking order, and all three make for outstanding first-round selections.
