Running Back Rankings Week 11: David Johnson

Welcome to Week 11 of the fantasy football season where now more than ever it’s time to make the right decisions when it comes to choosing which running backs to start if you want to have any chance of making the playoffs in your league.

If you are trying to decide whether or not guys like Alex Collins, Adrian Peterson and Tarik Cohen are worth starting (or using as flex options), hopefully these rankings can help you come to the right decision. (Don't forget our separate flex rankings either.)

The good news is that other than James White, Sony Michel, Nick Chubb and Matt Breida, the bye-week impact for Week 11 is not as significant compared to some previous weeks.
