Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Running Back Rankings Week 14

It’s Week 14 of the fantasy season and there’s a familiar sight at the top of the running back rankings. By now it should come as no surprise that David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliot are the top three (in some order), but things really get interesting after that.

DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy and Melvin Gordon all have great matchups this week and should see a lot of work, so they could easily outscore Elliot, who is playing on the road against a tough Giants defense.

But what about guys like Thomas Rawls and Latavius Murray, who both scored two touchdowns last week? Are they top-10 material? See for yourself below.
