Fantasy Football: Bobby Sylvester’s Running Back Rankings with Notes
Fantasy drafts are just a month away in most cases so it is time to kick our research into gear and begin prepping for another run at the championship. In recent weeks, I broke down the quarterbacks, tight ends and even defenses/kickers so today we’ll turn our attention to running backs before closing out the series with wide receivers later this week.
My primary goal in attacking this position is to snag 2 of the top 18 backs, as there is a substantial drop-off into the next tier. Ideally, it would be Todd Gurley and Dalvin Cook at the turn, but I certainly wouldn’t oppose Christian McCaffrey and Aaron Jones in the 1st and 3rd round. After securing my starters, Latavius Murray and often times James White join my squad as my 3rd and 4th options. Then it is all upside with Justice Hill, Damien Harris and even Bruce Anderson as a few of my favorite late-round targets. Now let’s get to my top 80 half-PPR fantasy running backs with notes on the first 60.
