Todd Gurley: Running Back Rankings Week 4

Kareem Hunt: Flex Rankings Week 16

So when it comes to fantasyrunning back rankings one thing we know is that Kareem Hunt has become a must-start player who, apparently, is going to produce a long touchdown every week.

We also know that Paul Perkins, a sleeper candidate for many entering this season, is completely untrustworthy. That is, unless you’re in a 32-team league and even then it’s debatable.
