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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Cowboys (vs. Redskins) - 13 Points
80 Rushing Yards, 6 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards.
Washington ranks 30th against the run.
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.
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.
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.
Bilal Powell, RB, Jets (vs. Steelers) - 8 Points
60 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.
Now entrenched as the primary ball-carrier.
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.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
