2015 Fantasy Football: Running Backs Matchup Chart

Follow @walterfootball for updates.

Each week, I will provide our loyal readers with a matchup chart for each NFL position.

Check out the other positions: Quarterback | Wide Receiver | Tight End

My method is usually to rank each defense in different categories and then average those rankings into a single ranking. Rather than using just rankings and their averages this week, I’m giving the actual stats allowed due to the small amount of games. They are sorted by fantasy points allowed
