Here are my Top 10 Running Back Rankings for PPR Fantasy Football -
David Johnson is A Great Running Back, David Johnson was quoted saying that his goal is for 1,000 Rushing and 1,000 Recieving which his skill set could allow him to do, If you ask me I think a talent like that is a Better upside than Le’Veon Bell. Bell has proven he is a great running Back for multiple years now. Bell is a great running Back plays very smart and patient, when it comes to drafting there is a tier with DJ, Bell, Gurley who are all very good bets. My second tier is Kamara, Elliott, Gordon. Those three guys are unbelievable, In PPR it’s not going to be easy to beat Kamara, and with Ingram out he’ll get more ground carries after only 120 or so last season for 700 yards, he had 5 TDs in both Rushing and Recieving one of the only running backs to do so. Elliott will have a greater catching role this season with Dez gone their WR core is weak, they will do a lot more dump passes to Elliott this year and could jump up even higher in PPR to #1 or #2. Gordon’s pass catching is very underrated and he is a strong running Back who is underrated. He is unbelievable, if you have the chance to take him of those guys are off the board, take him... Period. Barkley, Hunt, Cook, Mcaffrey are my third tier. Barkley is a rookie that hard a hard time going up the middle at Penn State, granite the line wasn’t good at all, he could be one of the best in the game, one of the Best Running backs I’ve scoured, if the first 6 or off the board consider him because his skill set could make him to the next Best Running Back in the NFL. Hunt is a power back who Dosent go down easy and is fast he came of a season almost beating AP’s record for consecutive 100 yard rushing games, he has a great talent and upside. Cook if he didn’t get hurt he could have been the rushing leader he makes guys miss, fast and can catch well, he is very good and just because Murray had a good season don’t think Cook Dosent take carriers away from him this season. McCaffrey is a Pass Catcher, that’s his role on the team, although they said that the ideal role would also be to get him 20-25 carriers a game, which is amazing if he does.
