Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 1

Damien Williams drops in the rankings with the addition of LeSean McCoy

Fantasy football season is here, and Week 1 should be the easiest week to figure out which players to start, especially at running back. However, holdouts from Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon have made this difficult. For the sake of these rankings, Elliott is ranked and Gordon is not, based on the latest reports.

 

In addition, Damien Williams has dropped way down in the rankings. With the addition of LeSean McCoy, it seems that Williams is no longer the high RB2 that he may have been drafted as. In Buffalo, Frank Gore is the highest-ranked running back. Devin Singletary jumps up to an RB3/flex play.

 

When trying to decide between two running backs, just go to the rankings. Either start the one you feel strongly about or start the one that is higher in the rankings.
