Chet Gresham's Week 7 Fantasy Football RB Rankings -Traditional

by Chet Gresham - on Twitter

To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on Walt's Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em page, you can check out the Weekly Fantasy Football Rankings, so you can figure out whom to start between Player X and Player Y.

Below are my fantasy RB rankings and a set of links for my positional Weekly NFL Fantasy Football Rankings. Keep in mind that this list is for this week only; not the entire rest of the season. If you don't like my rankings, check out Walter's fantasy football rankings.

The rankings are based on a Traditional scoring system. Each player has's projected stats and standard scoring points.

But who do I start...

Updated - Follow @ChetGresham for updates.
  1. Todd Gurley, RB, Rams (at 49ers)
    The 49ers' run defense is good but Todd Gurley is better.

  2. Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants (at Falcons)
    Barkley is the premier play this week for upside, as this Falcons run defense has collapsed.

  3. Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers (vs. Titans)
    The Titans have yet to face a top running back, yet have still allowed over 100 yards rushing at 4.2 yards per carry. Gordon should do his usual damage.

  4. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys (at Redskins)
    Elliott just ran all over the Jaguars and has shown well despite the Cowboys' passing game being subpar this year. Washington is a middling run defense that Elliott can beat.

  5. Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs (vs. Bengals)
    This is a strong matchup for Hunt, as Cincinnati has allowed 102.5 rushing yards at 4.85 yards per carry and 6.3 receptions for 50.8 yards per game to running backs.

  6. Joe Mixon, RB, Bengals (at Chiefs)
    Kansas City allows the third-most total yards and second-most fantasy points to running backs, and Mixon is used as the every down back with a strong 4.7 yards per carry so far.

  7. David Johnson, RB, Cardinals (vs. Broncos)
    Denver has allowed back-to-back 200-yard rushers for the first time in recorded history, and this week, the Broncos will head to Arizona to take on David Johnson, who has been just okay compared to his elite fantasy standing in the past. Still, Johnson has played well enough for you to be excited to start him against what is currently the worst run defense in the league, statistically.

  8. Alvin Kamara, RB, Saints (at Ravens)
    The Ravens' defense is good enough that the Saints will likely need some Kamara magic in this one. I expect a big target afternoon for him, and you know what he can do with those targets.

  9. Sony Michel, RB, Patriots (at Bears)
    This Bears/Patriots game is a tough one to map out, but the ageless wonder Frank Gore just went for 100 yards on the ground against the Bears. Michel can do as well if given the chance.

  10. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers (at Eagles)
    This is not a great matchup for McCaffrey, but he remains a must-start due to his usage and ability as a receiver.

  11. Carlos Hyde, RB, Browns (at Buccaneers)

  12. Mark Ingram, RB, Saints (at Ravens)

  13. Adrian Peterson, RB, Redskins (vs. Cowboys)

  14. James White, RB, Patriots (at Bears)

  15. LeSean McCoy, RB, Bills (at Colts)

  16. Jordan Howard, RB, Bears (vs. Patriots)

  18. Phillip Lindsay, RB, Broncos (at Cardinals)

  19. Tarik Cohen, RB, Bears (vs. Patriots)

  20. Alex Collins, RB, Ravens (vs. Saints)
