Fantasy Football 2015 Running Back Rankings: Week 15

It’s fantasy semifinals week! At least it is for most leagues unless you play in one of those leagues that all the way through Week 17. By now you should have a pretty good feel for what to do with your lineup. But in those cases where it’s basically a coin toss, hopefully you will consider using Athlon's positional rankings to make an informed and educated decision.

Along those lines, Week 14 was another tough one for the running backs. Between more injuries to guys like Thomas Rawls (ankle, done for the season), T.J. Yeldon (sprained knee, likely out at least Week 15) and LeGarrette Blount (hip, also done for season), while typical scoring options like Devonta Freeman, DeMarco Murray and Latavius Murray failed to produce, it's fair to assume many a matchup was won or lost last week because of the RB position.
