Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 17

Sony Michel, Los Angeles Rams

With Darrell Henderson Jr. out, Sony Michel should be an RB1 in Week 17

In Week 17, fantasy managers need to win to get their championship. If you were relying on Darrell Henderson Jr. this week, you are in trouble as he was just put on injured reserve. Instead, Sony Michel is now ranked as an RB1. The Rams face the Ravens in Week 17 and Michel should be given plenty of work (even if Cam Akers returns for the game). 

For Philadelphia, fantasy managers that drafted Miles Sanders need to find a replacement (again) as he's out for Week 17. Jordan Howard is ranked as an RB2 and Boston Scott is an RB3. The Eagles face Washington, and if either Howard or Scott was dropped because Sanders came back, grab them from the waiver wire.
