Running Back Rankings Week 6

Is T.J. Yeldon a top-10 starting option with Leonard Fournette sidelined?

Heading into Week 6 of the fantasy football season the running back injuries are starting to pile up and that means lots of opportunities for players to step up.


But which players are actually worth starting this week? Is T.J. Yeldon a top-10 ranked running back this week? What about the Patriots' running backs? Who has more value this week, Sony Michel or James White?


And as happy as Mark Ingram owners were to get him back this past week, he and his tag-team partner Alvin Kamara, along with Detroit rookie Kerryon Johnson (as well as LeGarrette Blount) are all on bye in Week 6. That means the talent pool at the position is even more diluted.


But fear not, answers can (hopefully) be found below in the Week 6 running back rankings.
