Running Back Rankings Week 15

Jonathan Stewart exploded for three touchdowns last week. Can he keep it going?

Kenyan Drake: Running Back Rankings Week 15

For most leagues, Week 15 is fantasy football semifinals week, and hopefully, your team(s) made it. For those strange leagues that play into Week 17, this is week one of the fantasy football playoffs.


Either way, hopefully your march towards a fantasy football championship is well on its way, but you still need to make the right decisions. And while every position this time of the season is important, the right (or wrong) decisions at running back could end up being the difference between making a run at a title or coming up painfully short.


So in Week 15 should you start an upstart like Kenyan Drake (above, right) or a savvy veteran like Carlos Hyde or DeMarco Murray or maybe Dion Lewis? At least you know what to do if you are fortunate enough to own Le’Veon Bell, LeSean McCoy, Todd Gurley or one of the Saints’ RBs (assuming Alvin Kamara clears the concussion protocol).
