Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 16

Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles

Following a 100-yard performance in Week 15, Miles Sanders is back to RB2 status

For Week 16's fantasy rankings, both Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon are within the top 20. In Week 15, Jones had 13 carries for 58 yards and two receptions for 12 yards and a touchdown. Dillon had seven carries for 22 yards and a touchdown. He added a 13-yard reception. The Packers face the Cleveland Browns in Week 16, and both backs are likely going to be utilized. It is hard to predict exactly who will fare better, but they both eat into each other's value.

Meanwhile, Miles Sanders jumped into RB2 range following his performance in Week 15. He ran for 131 yards on an injured ankle. It seems that the ankle is no longer an issue, and Sanders is looking to reclaim his role as the lead back in Philadelphia. Boston Scott and Jordan Howard faded into the background in Week 15, and the rankings reflect that for Week 16 as well.
