Running Back Rankings Week 7

Ezekiel Elliott will play this week and he's in a good matchup against San Francisco

Jerick McKinnon: Running Back Rankings Week 7

When it comes to the fantasy running back rankings for Week 7 it’s best to start with what we do know. We do know that Ezekiel Elliot will play against San Francisco, although the legal saga surrounding his six-game suspension is far from over, unfortunately. While Elliott has not been nearly as productive as he was to this point last season, he’s still a top-10 fantasy RB and in a good matchup against a 49ers’ defense that’s giving up the third-most fantasy points to the position.


As for the rest of the league, we also know that neither Lamar Miller nor Ameer Abdullah nor another Houston or Detroit running back is playing this week because of a bye. How much that impacts your fantasy team is debatable. As is how much you should trust Week 6 studs Mark Ingram and Jerick McKinnon. And are you buying Adrian Peterson’s resurrection in Arizona?
