Fantasy Football Week 6 Running Back Rankings



To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on my 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 running back 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.

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


2013 Fantasy Football Weekly Rankings: QB | RB | WR | TE | DEF


2013 Fantasy Football Weekly Rankings - PPR: RB | WR | TE




Updated 10/10 - Follow @walterfootball for updates.
  1. Adrian Peterson, RB, Vikings (vs. Panthers) - 22 Points
    150 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Pro Bowl fullback Jerome Felton is back, so Adrian Peterson should be back to 2012 form.


  2. Jamaal Charles, RB, Chiefs (vs. Raiders) - 20 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 7 Catches, 80 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Raiders are a surprising 11th against the run, but Jamaal Charles will do most of his damage via receiving yardage.


  3. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seahawks (vs. Titans) - 18 Points
    100 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Titans have surrendered at least 100 rushing yards to three of their four previous opponents.


  4. LeSean McCoy, RB, Eagles (at Bucs) - 17 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Buccaneers have limited three of four opponents to 75 rushing yards or fewer.


  5. Reggie Bush, RB, Lions (at Browns) - 17 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 60 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Reggie Bush has a tough matchup against the Browns, but having Calvin Johnson back will help open things up for him.


  6. Doug Martin, RB, Bucs (vs. Eagles) - 16 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Eagles are 21st against the run.


  7. Matt Forte, RB, Bears (vs. Giants) - 15 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 40 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Giants actually aren't that bad against the run, but Matt Forte will be a big part of the passing game.


  8. Ray Rice, RB, Ravens (vs. Packers) - 15 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Dolphins are tough to run against, but Ray Rice should get receptions this week.


  9. Alfred Morris, RB, Redskins (at Cowboys) - 15 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Cowboys stink against the pass, but they're just average versus the run.


  10. Fred Jackson, RB, Bills (vs. Bengals) - 14 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Fred Jackson had a solid Thursday night despite spraining his MCL. The extra time off can only help.




  11. Marcel Reece, RB, Raiders (at Chiefs) - 14 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Marcel Reece could receive most of the workload.


  12. Darren Sproles, RB, Saints (at Patriots) - 14 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 7 Catches, 60 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.


  13. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers (vs. Cardinals) - 13 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    The Cardinals are fourth against the run, but Frank Gore should still be treated like an RB2.


  14. Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos (vs. Jaguars) - 13 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Knowshon Moreno is the lead dog in the backfield, but the Broncos have shown that they'll test out Montee Ball in a blowout.


  15. DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys (vs. Redskins) - 13 Points
    80 Rushing Yards, 6 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards.
    Washington ranks 30th against the run.


  16. Trent Richardson, RB, Colts (at Chargers) - 12 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Regardless of whether or not Ahmad Bradshaw is in the lineup, Trent Richardson will always be a threat to score.


  17. Arian Foster, RB, Texans (vs. Rams) - 12 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Arian Foster has actually looked pretty decent the past couple of weeks.


  18. Danny Woodhead, RB, Chargers (vs. Colts) - 9 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 7 Catches, 60 Receiving Yards.


  19. C.J. Spiller, RB, Bills (vs. Bengals) - 8 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.
    C.J. Spiller's not fully healthy. He's a low-end RB2 at best.


  20. Bilal Powell, RB, Jets (vs. Steelers) - 8 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.
    Now entrenched as the primary ball-carrier.




  21. Giovani Bernard, RB, Bengals (at Bills) - 7 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    The Bills are decent against the run, so Giovani Bernard will have to do most of his damage as a receiver out of the backfield.


  22. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Panthers (at Vikings) - 7 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.


  23. Le'Veon Bell, RB, Steelers (at Jets) - 7 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    New York has the No. 2 rush defense in the NFL.


  24. Andre Ellington, RB, Cardinals (at 49ers) - 6 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.
    Andre Ellington's role will continue to increase.


  25. Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Jaguars (at Broncos) - 6 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.
    The Jaguars will have to abandon the running game early on.


  26. Eddie Lacy, RB, Packers (at Ravens) - 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch.
    Eddie Lacy looked solid in his return, but Baltimore is eighth versus the run.


  27. Stevan Ridley, RB, Patriots (vs. Saints) - 6 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.
    Stevan Ridley could be back next week.


  28. Brandon Bolden, RB, Patriots (vs. Saints) - 6 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  29. Zac Stacy, RB, Rams (at Texans) - 6 Points
    60 Rushing Yards.
    Zac Stacy is now the primary ball-carrier. Unfortunately, he has to battle Houston's 13th-ranked run defense.


  30. Chris Johnson, RB, Titans (at Seahawks) - 6 Points
    50 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.
    Chris Johnson has been a major disappointment. I'd sit him against the Seahawks.




  31. Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Cardinals (at 49ers) - 5 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.
    Rashard Mendenhall stinks, so his role will continue to be reduced.


  32. Ryan Mathews, RB, Chargers (vs. Colts) - 5 Points
    50 Rushing Yards.
    Suffered a concussion on Sunday night.


  33. Joique Bell, RB, Lions (at Browns) - 5 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 30 Receiving Yards.


  34. Ronnie Hillman, RB, Broncos (vs. Jaguars) - 4 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.


  35. Willis McGahee, RB, Browns (vs. Lions) - 4 Points
    40 Rushing Yards.


  36. Chris Ogbonnaya, RB, Browns (vs. Lions) - 4 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  37. Da'Rel Scott, RB, Giants (at Bears) - 4 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  38. Daryl Richardson, RB, Rams (at Texans) - 4 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  39. Bernard Pierce, RB, Ravens (vs. Packers) - 4 Points
    40 Rushing Yards.


  40. Pierre Thomas, RB, Saints (at Patriots) - 4 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.




  41. Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Steelers (at Jets) - 4 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.


  42. Ben Tate, RB, Texans (vs. Rams) - 4 Points
    30 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 10 Receiving Yards.
    Ben Tate is a better runner than Arian Foster. He needs more touches.


  43. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Bengals (at Bills) - 3 Points
    30 Rushing Yards.


  44. Brandon Jacobs, RB, Giants (at Bears) - 3 Points
    30 Rushing Yards.


  45. Mike Goodson, RB, Jets (vs. Steelers) - 3 Points
    20 Rushing Yards, 1 Catch, 10 Receiving Yards.


  46. LeGarrette Blount, RB, Patriots (vs. Saints) - 3 Points
    30 Rushing Yards.


  47. Khiry Robinson, RB, Saints (at Patriots) - 3 Points
    30 Rushing Yards.


  48. Montee Ball, RB, Broncos (vs. Jaguars) - 2 Points
    20 Rushing Yards.


  49. Chris Ivory, RB, Jets (vs. Steelers) - 2 Points
    20 Rushing Yards.


  50. Michael Bush, RB, Bears (vs. Giants) - 1 Points
    10 Rushing Yards.

    Ahmad Bradshaw will be out for a while.

All it took was one game for AP and your back on the bandwagon. I couldn't believe how low you ranked him before the season. He could still get hurt but so can everyone else. If you WATCHED the game hes not movin like he used to but its still better than most and very early. If people were smart and watched some of his rehab videos you took him in the 2nd or even late first in drafts(actually got him the 3rd in one league). At least you had an opinion and stuck with it... until week 1 was over, theres nothing like over reacting after week 1.

@ Keanun

Lol, you ungrateful troll. As if Walt could predict that Fred was going to go down with an injury. Remember, NO ONE can tell the future....it's his OPINION as to who will do well.

If your team did that well start posting your own rankings on your own site. Enjoy your day!

Walt...Emmitt...anybody...
I'm very limited in RB options in a non-PPR league. My choices for this week are Sproles, Ryan Mathews and Kevin Smith. Can anybody help me decide who to bench?

Sometimes your rankings just make no sense. You list Ced Benson as a sit and Peyton Hillis as a start in your Start em Sit em, yet you rank Benson higher. Which is it?
