Fantasy Football: Top 50 RBs (41-50)


Top 50 RBs For PPR Leagues (41-50)

I want to take some time and give you my top 50 RBs for the 2015 season. I prefer to play in more PPR (point-per-reception) leagues and want to put out a bit more detailed look at some early rankings that are certainly subject to change as things shape up now that OTAs are happening across the league. These rankings will be primarily for PPR leagues, but I would use them in half-PPR and I like them for standard leagues to a degree even though there are some backs I prefer to own or not based on the type of league.

50. DeAngelo WilliamsWilliams is now the backup to Le’Veon Bell in Pittsburgh. I don’t know if he will actually beat out Dri Archer though when all is said and done. With the suspension of Bell one of these two guys will start the season with a lot more value and could be worth drafting quite a bit higher, but barring an injury to Bell once he returns both will be useless.

49. Denard RobinsonRobinson stepped up and filled the void at RB pretty nicely for the Jaguars. He is a pretty good pass-catching back and would likely have more value in PPR leagues. With the addition of T.J. Yeldon he will likely be in a back-up and change of pace role for the Jags.

48. Jerrick McKinnon: Here is a guy that could stand to gain a lot of value for 2015 or lose a lot based on what happens with the Adrian Peterson drama. As for now keep your hopes for him low.

47. Reggie BushBush finished last season as quite a disappointment. I expect that Joique Bell should continue to get the bulk of the carries for the Lions and Bush will continue to be a low usage back for them.

46. Darren Sproles: There have been a ton of changes and additions to the backfield in Philadelphia. However I expect that Sproles should still have some kind fo role for 2015 as the Eagles seemed to like him quite a bit last season.

45. Knile DavisYou draft Davis a little bit earlier than this if you own Jamaal Charles. Davis shown that he was pretty much a top ten caliber back when Charles was out. He is a very worthy lottery ticket type of player.

44. Fred JacksonI am beginning to think that Fred Jackson may never go away. He may be our modern-day Energizer bunny. Draft him as insurance for newly acquired LeSean McCoy and he could also possibly steal some reps and passing down work.

  • 43. Andre WilliamsWe all thought Williams was going to be the man in New York last year. Things sure do change quickly especially with you know who as the head coach there.

    42. Terrance WestWest will most likely start the season as the backup to Isaiah Crowell. He could have some fantasy relevance and will likely be a solid RB2 if he won the starting job or Crowell was injured.

    41. Montee BallHere is even more proof of how one season can rapidly change the value and outlook of a player. With that said it could go back the other way just as quickly, although I certainly don’t expect that C.J. Anderson loses the job in Denver.
