Running Back Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 8

Kenneth Walker III is a solid RB1 for Week 8.

The fantasy running back landscape has changed a bit since Week 1. Christian McCaffrey is now on the San Francisco 49ers, and while he didn't play as much in Week 7, he should be on the field much more this coming Sunday. Expect to see him on third downs this week, and he is a solid RB1 (until he gets injured).

Kenneth Walker III put on a show in Week 7 and is an RB1 for Week 8. He had 168 yards and two touchdowns, and he should continue to be a focal point of Seattle's offense. Keep in mind that DK Metcalf will likely be out, so the running game might be an even bigger part of the game plan against the New York Giants.
