Week 16 is upon us and if you’re looking into getting in the championship round this week then this RB rankings list is for you. The RBs have been tough this year, but this week I have you set to win your second-round matchup.
Just as a reminder if you haven’t seen my other rankings, this list is based on half PPR scoring.
Running Back Notes:
- Austin Ekeler is one of my top running backs for this week. But, this week I have him back in the top three with his matchup against the Texans. Since Week 10 Ekeler has scored at least one touchdown. He has been one of the most consistent running backs this season and will continue that this week. This is not a player you will want to bench this week.
- Next, Cordarrelle Patterson is right outside the top five this week at RB 6. He had a rough week last week but has the Lions this week who are giving up over 22 fantasy points this season. Patterson has been the main part of the offense all season and is only averaging around 50% of the snap shares this season. But, even then he has finished in the top 10 four times this year. He has a great matchup this week and will show up.
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire is one of my favorite running backs this week. He has a great matchup against the Steelers this week. They are giving up over 21 fantasy points to running backs this season. Edwards-Helaire is one of those running backs you might be sure one, but trust me he will get you over double-digit points this week. Since coming back from his injury he has scored in double digits except for one week. This is the week he doesn’t disappoint. The Steelers are known for giving up lots of points to running backs.
