Running back is often the toughest position for fantasy football owners. Draft a running back too early and that guy ends up being a bust? Your team is toast (see: Christian McCaffrey, 2020 season). Subscribe to the zero running back theory? Sometimes it works when you hit on a guy that will come through for you, and other times your late-round guys end up being bench fodder by the middle of the season. Regardless of what you are looking for, the running back tiers should provide some guidance for draft day.
