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 10/23/2019 - Follow @ChetGresham for updates.
  1. Dalvin Cook, RB, Vikings (vs. Redskins)
    Washington likely won't be able to put up many points in Minnesota, so Cook will get all the work he needs to put up another big game.

  2. Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants (at Lions)
    Barkley gets a great matchup against a run defense that continues to give up big numbers to opposing backs, allowing the most fantasy points per touch to the position.

  3. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers (at 49ers)
    McCaffrey goes from Tampa Bay to San Francisco, which is not the schedule you would hope for, but he gets the damn thing done each week.

  4. James Conner, RB, Steelers (vs. Dolphins)
    Conner should be good to go, but keep an eye on practice reports. The Dolphins have allowed the most fantasy points per game to running backs.

  5. Latavius Murray, RB, Saints (vs. Cardinals)

  6. Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks (at Falcons)
    The Falcons run defense has been good this season but their awful pass defense gives running backs chances to score and Carson has played well enough to beat any defense this year.

  7. Aaron Jones, RB, Packers (at Chiefs)
    Kansas City has given up 94 or more total yards to six different running backs and this week they'll have trouble putting up points with Matt Moore under center, giving the Packers more reason to run with a probable lead.

  8. Todd Gurley, RB, Rams (vs. Bengals)
    Gurley's usage isn't what we'd like, but this matchup and his touchdown upside are too good not to go all-in.

  9. Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars (vs. Jets)
    The Jets run defense isn't as bad as the fantasy points they've allowed makes them look, but Fournette is a usage giant and will find a way to accumulate fantasy points.

  10. Le'Veon Bell, RB, Jets (at Jaguars)
    Bell was the only positive in their cataclysmic loss to New England on Monday night and this week he gets a much better matchup against the Jaguars, who rank 27th in run defense DVOA.

  11. Derrick Henry, RB, Titans (vs. Buccaneers)

  12. Sony Michel, RB, Patriots (vs. Browns)

  13. Austin Ekeler, RB, Chargers (at Bears)
