Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 15

Michael Carter, New York Jets

Fantasy managers are hoping Michael Carter returns in Week 15

It's playoff week and fantasy managers are going to have some tough decisions to make. Darrell Henderson Jr. is currently on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and also could still be dealing with the lingering effects of his thigh injury. His uncertain status (and the performance of Sony Michel in his stead) is why Henderson didn't make these rankings, but that doesn't mean he won't end up playing. Michael Carter is still on injured reserve, but it's possible he's activated and reclaims his spot near, if not at, the top of the Jets' backfield rotation. He's ranked as an RB4.

Also, be aware of the COVID-19 outbreak that is making its way through the NFL. Each day more and more players are placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Often that means they will miss the next game just because of the time needed in order to clear the protocols. The Browns and the Rams in particular are dealing with a large number of cases. Keep your eye on your players to make sure they are active.
