Fantasy football is a beautiful game, but it’s also been a very cruel one thus far if you took a running back high in your league’s draft. If you were one of the guys (like me) unfortunate enough to draft the Baltimore Ravens; Ray Rice, Jacksonville Jaguars Maurice Jones-Drew, Miami Dolphins Lamar Miller or the Cleveland Browns’ Trent Richardson.

Through two games, here is the top-10 backs in terms of rushing statistics go:
