Fantasy Football 2016 Running Back Rankings: Week 11

Le'Veon Bell gets the luxury of facing the Browns this week

With David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, Ezekiel Elliot and DeMarco Murray all playing so well, trying to figure out which one will be the No. 1 fantasy running back for Week 11 is rather tricky. It really boils down to matchups, and since Bell is playing against Cleveland, he gets the nod. But Murray, Johnson and Elliott aren’t too far behind.


The Monday night matchup in Mexico City also should be a good one for RBs, particularly Lamar Miller and Latavius Murray. Elsewhere, backfield situations worth keeping an eye on Sunday include Baltimore (Terrance West, Kenneth Dixon); Jacksonville (Chris Ivory, T.J. Yeldon), New York Giants (Rashad Jennings, Paul Perkins); Philadelphia (Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles); Seattle (C.J. Prosise, Thomas Rawls); and Washington (Robert Kelley, Chris Thompson). How the touches are distributed could help determine the outlook for these teams and/or players as we get closer to the fantasy playoffs.
