Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 10

In PPR leagues, Jaylen Samuels is an RB2 as he is heavily involved in the passing game

Tevin Coleman came back down to earth in Week 9 after his four-touchdown performance in Week 8, much to the chagrin of his fantasy owners. He had a pedestrian 23 rushing yards and 13 receiving yards and now faces the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. He's ranked No. 18. Kenyan Drake put up a surprising performance in Week 9 (110 rushing yards, 52 receiving yards and a touchdown) but he is unlikely to repeat that in Week 10. He's ranked No. 25 as the Cardinals take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

 

Before Week 9, the biggest waiver wire add should have been Jaylen Samuels. James Conner was dealing with an injury, and even though it was a tough matchup, based on the volume, Samuels was an RB2. He exceeded expectations in PPR formats where he caught all 13 of his targets (that's 13 fantasy points right there!) for 73 yards. He didn't do much as a runner, so even if Conner returns this week, in PPR formats, Samuels should be started as an RB2. He is ranked No. 20.
