Fantasy Football 2015 Running Back Rankings: Week 2

Carlos Hyde exploded for 168 yards rushing and 2 TDs on "Monday Night Football" against the Vikings

Week 1 of the NFL regular season and fantasy season and fantasy season is in the books and now that the dust has settled some interesting conclusions could be made...


Maybe Adrian Peterson is a little bit rusty after a year off (and maybe a little slower too?)


Alfred Morris isn’t going anywhere (sorry all you Matt Jones fanboys)


Bishop Sankey isn’t Bishop Stankey (at least for one week)


Jonathan Stewart didn’t get hurt (yet)


Carlos Hyde looked pretty good Monday night (can he keep it up?)


Doug Martin is still Doug Martin (enough said)


Let’s look ahead to this week and see who projects to be the best bet for your Week 2 lineups.
