Le'Veon Bell: Running Back Rankings Week 6

Running back is a funny, and equally frustrating, position for fantasy football owners. When someone is in a good spot (like Le'Veon Bell and Todd Gurley last week), often times they fall flat and fail to meet expectations.

Then there are players that no one rostered like Marlon Mack, or even Aaron Jones, who on any given Sunday can blow up and have huge fantasy days. Making them instant waiver wire must-adds.

Thus is life in fantasy football and this is why weekly rankings like what you will find below are so important. This is especially the case when byes are in effect, as this week there’s no Ezekiel Elliott, LeSean McCoy, Joe Mixon or any other Bengals, Bills, Cowboys or Seahawks RB.
