Running Back Rankings Week 15: Derrick Henry

For most fantasy football leagues, Week 15 is semifinals week, and hopefully your team made it. For those few leagues that play through Week 17, this is the start of your fantasy postseason. Either way, all teams that are still alive need to make the right decisions.

That is especially the case at running back, as you don't want to be the owner who has a guy that goes off for 200-plus yards and/or four touchdowns sitting on your bench (or worse, the waiver wire). Sound familiar to anyone?

So should you trust Derrick Henry this week or what about Gus Edwards, Tevin Coleman or Kenyan Drake? That's what these running back rankings are here for – to help you sort through your options and (hopefully) make the best decision.
