Fantasy Football 2016 Running Back Rankings: Week 10

David Johnson

Image placeholder title

There are some big-name running backs in great spots for Week 10 who could pay off handsomely for their fantasy owners. But none have a better matchup than David Johnson, who comes off of the bye week rested and gets another shot at San Francisco, far and away the worst rushing defense it the league thus far.

But what about guys like Melvin Gordon, Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliot? They also have great matchups, so where do they rank? And what about RBs such as Jordan Howard and Jay Ajayi, who a month ago weren’t even on the fantasy radar and now are producing in a major way?

Recommended Articles

Some guys who won’t be producing at all this week because they are on bye include LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and Latavius Murray.

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