Chet Gresham's Week 3 Fantasy Football RB Rankings



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 scoring system. Each player has Walterfootball.com's projected stats and standard scoring points.

But who do I start...

Updated 9/20 - Follow @walterfootball for updates.
  1. Le'Veon Bell, RB, Steelers (at Bears)- 18 Points
    95 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 28 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    Chicago can stop the run, but with so little offense, I expect the Steelers to have an imposing lead, which will lead to Bell seeing plenty of opportunities, which will eventually lead to a big day.

  2. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys (at Cardinals)- 14 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 18 Receiving Yards, 1 TD.
    I expect we'll see a bounceback performance from Elliott this week. It may not be a huge game, but this week isn't full of easy running back matchups for studs.

  3. Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers (vs. Chiefs)- 14 Points
    95 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 50 Receiving Yards.
    Gordon's usage at the goal line and in the passing game give him an extremely high floor each week, even in a tough matchup.

  4. Todd Gurley, RB, Rams (at 49ers)- 13 Points
    95 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 38 Receiving Yards.
    Gurley played better last week than I've seen him play in a long while. As long as he's getting good usage like he has been, I expect his floor is much higher than it has been in over a year.

  5. Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs (at Chargers)- 12 Points
    86 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 42 Receiving Yards.
    Hunt has been unstoppable so far, and despite not allowing a touchdown to a running back yet, the Chargers have allowed 120 yards rushing per game.

  6. Jay Ajayi, RB, Dolphins (at Jets)- 12 Points
    90 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 36 Receiving Yards.
    The Jets have allowed the second-most rushing yards to running backs, and Ajayi just piled up 122 yards rushing against a tough Chargers defense.



  7. Carlos Hyde, RB, 49ers (vs. Rams)- 11 Points
    84 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 27 Receiving Yards.
    Hyde has been defying his overall offense by putting up good numbers, and the Rams aren't better than the Seahawks or Panthers, who Hyde had success against.

  8. C.J. Anderson, RB, Broncos (at Bills)- 11 Points
    85 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 26 Receiving Yards.
    Anderson showed that he's healthy last week by running all over the Cowboys, and now he gets a nice matchup against the Bills.

  9. Ty Montgomery, RB, Packers (vs. Bengals)- 10 Points
    72 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 37 Receiving Yards.
    The Bengals have allowed the third-most rushing yards this season, and Montgomery has been on fire, playing all downs and most snaps. Keep rolling him out there.

  10. Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons (at Lions)- 10 Points
    70 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 34 Receiving Yards.
    The Lions did a good job stopping David Johnson in Week 1 and had little trouble with the Giants' running game last week, so I do worry about Freeman's upside. But as the goal-line back, he always has upside in this offense.

  11. Lesean McCoy, RB, Bills (vs. Broncos)- 10 Points
    78 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 26 Receiving Yards.
    McCoy was shut down by the Panthers last week and gets another painful matchup this week, but the Bills do play better at home. I expect we'll see a better game from Shady this week.

  12. Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings (vs. Buccaneers)- 10 Points
    71 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 31 Receiving Yards.
    Tampa Bay has only faced a Bears team who was behind early, so the stats against the run are pretty stout, as they probably will be even against better offenses. Cook, however, has shown enough for me to keep him as a RB1, though he does need Sam Bradford back.

  13. Isaiah Crowell, RB, Browns (at Colts)- 10 Points
    65 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 36 Receiving Yards.
    Crowell has done nothing this season, but has also faced two strong run defenses. He should have a better shot at 15+ carries in this game and could easily put up top numbers against the Colts' weak defense.

  14. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers (vs. Saints)- 9 Points
    40 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 55 Receiving Yards.


  15. Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars (vs. Ravens)- 9 Points
    61 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 33 Receiving Yards.


  16. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Raiders (at Redskins)- 9 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 32 Receiving Yards.


  17. Samaje Perine, RB, Redskins (vs. Raiders)- 8 Points
    74 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 13 Receiving Yards.


  18. Lamar Miller, RB, Texans (at Patriots)- 8 Points
    65 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 19 Receiving Yards.


  19. Ameer Abdullah, RB, Lions (vs. Falcons)- 8 Points
    58 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 26 Receiving Yards.


  20. Frank Gore, RB, Colts (vs. Browns)- 8 Points
    60 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 23 Receiving Yards.


  21. Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers (vs. Saints)- 8 Points
    61 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 20 Receiving Yards.


  22. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Bucs (at Vikings)- 7 Points
    64 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 15 Receiving Yards.


  23. Javorius Allen, RB, Ravens (at Jaguars)- 7 Points
    52 Rushing Yards, 3 Catches, 25 Receiving Yards.


  24. Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks (at Titans)- 7 Points
    53 Rushing Yards, 2 Catches, 23 Receiving Yards.


  25. Charles Sims, RB, Bucs (at Vikings)- 7 Points
    42 Rushing Yards, 4 Catches, 33 Receiving Yards.

    22 Rushing Yards, 5 Catches, 53 Receiving Yards.
