Projected Finish Name Team Notes RB1 Christian McCaffrey SF Week off should help production even against top-five rush defense in Jags, should see normal volume and at least 1 TD RB2 Jonathan Taylor IND Tied for season-high in carries with 18 even though he gained less than 50 yards, dual-threat ability keeps him as a top option each week RB3 Breece Hall NYJ Rushing efficiency has taken a hit last three weeks, but still piling up receptions and should pile up points vs. Raiders and their 4.5 YPC and 10 TDs allowed RB4 Alvin Kamara NO Had worst game of season vs. Bears and losing touches to Taysom Hill, but has nice matchup vs. surprising defense of Vikings RB5 Travis Etienne JAC Had monster game last week and has tough game vs. Niners coming up, but bye week after means Jags can really lean into run game RB6 Tony Pollard DAL Needs to get unlocked in both phases this week and if he can't beast vs. the Giants and 13 TDs allowed to RBs, he might be in trouble RB7 Bijan Robinson ATL Only eight yards through the air combined last three games, but nothing better to remedy that than Cardinals who give up third most rush yards to RBs RB8 Derrick Henry TEN Three straight weeks of solid production has him back on track and nothing should change vs. Buccs despite their 3.8 YPC and only four TDs allowed RB9 Saquon Barkley NYG Barkley has been on fire lately, but runs into stout Cowboys' D that only allows 4 YPC and seven TDs on season plus likely negative game script RB10 Kenneth Walker SEA B2B weeks of under 10 carries means he's losing touches to the rookie, but should bounce back in a big way at home vs. leaky Commanders RB11 Josh Jacobs LV Had best game of season vs. Giants, but will face stiffer task vs. Jets who are more of a run funnel due to elite pass D RB12 Joe Mixon CIN At least three grabs in four straight games boosts value, but will need to finish vs. Texans who've allowed 10 TDs, but only 3.5 YPC RB13 Aaron Jones GB It's taken Jones half the season to heal from his hamstring injury, but he was finally unleashed last week and that should continue vs. the Steelers RB14 Austin Ekeler LAC Ekeler hasn't look right since Week 1 and he has to take a bump in the rankings until he proves he can still run the ball down a team's throat RB15 Rhamondre Stevenson NE Stevenson hasn't had more than 10 carries in five weeks, but still racked up over 120 all purpose yards week, this should be his time vs. Colts and 15 TDs allowed RB16 David Montgomery DET He's missed last four weeks, but previous was a bye, so he should be all systems go to smash Chargers D RB17 Javonte Williams DEN Finally heating up with B2B 80 yards rushing weeks and now he gets Bills who are on the ropes giving up 4.9 YPC RB18 Rachaad White TB White will need to thrive in the passing game to keep up his production as he won't find many holes vs. Titans elite front RB19 Gus Edwards BAL Only saw five carries with emergence of Keaton Mitchell, but will need all the volume he can muster vs. Brown historic D RB20 D'Onta Foreman CHI Smash spot vs. Panthers and 14 TDs allowed, but lots of uncertainty with Justin Fields potential return RB21 Brian Robinson WAS Volume is stable, but Seahawks rush D comes and goes from week to week, solid RB2 this week with decent floor RB22 James Cook BUF Bloom is off the rose, but get-right game vs. Broncos who allow league-worst 5.4 YPC RB23 Alexander Mattison MIN Is back to being bell cow back with Cam Akers out for year, but everything in flux on this banged up Vikings team RB24 Chuba Hubbard CAR Low-end RB2 with solid volume and low upside, but Bears are elite rush D and more of a pass funnel with awful secondary RB25 Jerome Ford CLE 20 carries last week is great, but only 44 yards is not and Ravens only allowed three TDs all season to RBs RB26 Jahmyr Gibbs DET 26 carries last will be cut in half at best with DM back in the fold, still a start this week vs. Chargers, but temper expectations RB27 Najee Harris PIT Finally played well for first time in ages and even scored, hard to trust this week vs. Packers though RB28 Zach Moss IND Carries keep dwindling and only seven last week, no longer must-start, but still elite handcuff in case JT gets hurt again RB29 AJ Dillon GB Had a nice run while Jones was getting ramped up, but now that he's back, Dillon will have to settle for scraps and goal-line carries, back to bench for fantasy RB30 Kareen Hunt CLE B2B weeks with 14 carries is a good sign, but Ravens D won't be a cakewalk RB31 Tyler Allgeiers ATL Last week before bye, but while he scored last week, his ceiling is close to his floor and isn't trustworthy to even score 10 points on any given week RB32 Devin Singletary HOU Season-high 13 carries, but also historic game from QB, with Dameon Pierce banged up, might get RB1 touches for another week in solid matchup RB33 Jamaal Williams NO Hasn't scored yet and doesn't look great, but still he led league in TDs last season and that guy is still in there somewhere RB34 Jaylen Warren PIT Outperformed Harris again last week and it's only a matter of time before he is unleashed, elite stash and low-end RB play for deeper leagues RB35 Ezekiel Elliot NE TD or bust each week and the Pats don't score many to make it a worthwhile gamble RB36 Zach Charbonnet SEA Looked mortal after busting out a week ago, not the week to try and hope he smashes again RB37 Jaleel McLaughlin DEN Big play back only needs limited touches to produce, will have a nice oppurtunity to succeed vs. Bills team that gives up gash runs frequently RB38 Tyjae Spears TEN Put on backburner with DH chugging along, still elite stash, but chances of it paying off are going down each week RB39 Keaton Mitchell BAL Blow up player of the week looked explosive, lets see if it was a fluke or not, low-end play until backfield sorts itself out RB40 Miles Sanders CAR Left for dead, showed signs of life last week, not to be trusted
