Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Running Back Rankings Week 16

LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy

Over the past four weeks, LeSean McCoy has been a top-three fantasy running back with four straight games of more than 100 yards from scrimmage. He’s rushed for 100 in three of those and has scored a total of five touchdowns during that span as well. This Sunday, he faces Miami and those fantasy owners that started Bilal Powell in Week 15 know that you can run on the Dolphins, especially if you are a running back that catches passes too. McCoy may get a few touchdowns vultured by Mike Gillislee, but his volume and recent production almost makes up for it.

Todd Gurley makes a return to the top 10 this week. He faces San Francisco, and if there was ever a time to have a good week, it should be in Week 16, against the defense that allows the most fantasy points to opposing running backs.  Gurley just may redeem his season in Week 16 – although it's likely too late for his frustrated fantasy owners.
