Running Back Rankings Week 7: Tevin Coleman

It’s Week 7 of the fantasy football season and this week the big news is that the Falcons have put Devonta Freeman on injured reserve, which basically makes him irrelevant for fantasy purposes for the rest of the season.

So where does Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith rank this week? Are they both ranked inside the top 24? And what other running backs should you play closer attention to with James Conner, Marshawn Lynch, Chris Carson and Aaron Jones (among others) all on bye?

Positional Rankings: QB I RB I WR I TE I DST I K I Flex

Teams on bye: Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle
