Fantasy Football: Old Faces, New Places: Running Backs

Fantasy Football: Old Faces, New Places: Running Backs More than a dozen running backs will put on a new NFL jersey this season, and that's not including the future talent that will be drafted next week. There are still a couple of impactful running backs available on the free agent market, such as DeMarco Murray and the recently released C.J. Anderson to keep an eye on. Some who signed landed in better fantasy football environments, while others are likely to provide a fantasy hit to their stock or new teammates. The…

Fantasy Football: Week 17 Running Back Matchup Report

Todd Gurley and Kareem Hunt have led many fantasy owners to the brink of a championship in 2017. However, they will be both unavailable in Week 17, as they are resting for the NFL playoffs. Needless to say, this will present quite a challenge for fantasy owners who have ridden them to this point. Owners may be forced to bench players or scour the waiver wire for some Week 17 fill-ins. Conversely, Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone has stated that he will not bench his starters, despite their seed already being set in stone.…

Fantasy Football: Week 14 Recap

They might…

Fantasy Football: Week 4 Running Back Matchup Report

What will happen in Week 4? It was another strong week for the running back position in Week 3. Once again, there were 21 running backs who scored at least 10 fantasy points in standard scoring. Four of the top seven running backs in Week 2 (Todd Gurley, Kareem Hunt, Chris Thompson, and Devonta Freeman) repeated the feat in Week 3. Hunt and Gurley are the only backs to be an RB1 in each of the first three weeks of the 2017 season. Le’Veon Bell, Ezekiel Elliott, and Jordan Howard showed that rumors of their demises have been…

Fantasy Football: Week 3 Running Back Matchup Report

To illustrate just how quickly things can change in fantasy football, one just needs to view the current running back landscape compared to a few short weeks ago. In standard scoring leagues, there are two (TWO!) Baltimore Ravens currently performing as RB1s, neither of which is Danny Woodhead. PPR flier Chris Thompson is the overall RB6 in standard scoring, and four of the top seven NFL rushing leaders are rookies, including one who is still listed fourth on his own team’s depth chart! Another NFC rookie currently ranks as…
