Running Back Rankings Week 8

LeSean McCoy looks to build off of his best game of the season (122 total yards, 2 TDs)

Ezekiel Elliott: Running Back Rankings Week 8

Once again as it relates to fantasy running back rankings for Week 8, it’s best to stick to things that we know. First things first, Ezekiel Elliott will play in Week 8, so no worries on that front — until next week. However, Marshawn Lynch will not play this week as he’s suspended, which brings Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington into the forefront.


We also know that six teams are on bye, which means you will see some unfamiliar names in unfamiliar places in this week’s rankings. 


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


Teams on bye: Arizona, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Tennessee
