The fantasy football postseason is just one week away and I know you’re going to need every bit of advice to streak into the playoffs. So, lucky for you I have my Week 14 top-60 RB rankings for you. I want to make this week easy and stress-free for you. Trust me, you don’t want your season to end early because you started Ezekiel Elliott at Pittsburgh.
Running Back Notes
- Let’s start with Ezekiel Elliott as my RB29. I know he looks tempting to start this week as Rhamondre Stevenson could be out this week. But, even when Elliott has got playing time, he has not shown up this season. He only has two touchdowns on the season and those games were in Weeks 6 and 7. His two fantasy highs are 11.4 and 11.2. He has not scored over in the double-digits besides those two games. Elliott also has a tough matchup against the Steelers this week. I know they just gave up over 100 yards to James Conner. But, before that the Steelers shut down the Packers, Browns and Bengals run game.
- Let’s talk about Rachaad White, as he is my RB11 this week. Now he does have a tough matchup against the Falcons this week, but White has been hot since Week 7. He’s averaged 16.4 fantasy points per game since Week 7. He also has the second-most total fantasy points in that stretch just behind Christian McCaffrey. White is clearly the workhorse and is a high-end RB2 this week.
- Next, I have De’Von Achane as my RB15 against the Titans. Achane beat out Raheem Mostert in carries last week 17 to 11. Which led Achane to score two touchdowns for 73 yards. Mostert also had a touchdown but only put up 43 yards. It is clear the Dolphins are going to use both these backs, but now it looks like Achane is fully healthy and will be the more explosive running back.
- Lastly, I have Austin Ekeler as my RB8. Ekeler has been terrible as of late scoring 6, 6.9, and 3.7 fantasy points in his last three games. But, this week he has the Broncos defense. The Broncos defense is giving up the most fantasy points per game to running backs this season in 26.4. So, this is the time for Ekeler to show up. The Chargers are still in the playoff hunt, so this is the time when their veteran players need to show up. Trust Ekeler this week against the Broncos.
