The game of fantasy football has changed in many ways over recent years in correlation with changes to the National Football League. Long gone are the days where a majority of teams use a bell-cow running back as a feature of their offense. More and more we’re seeing specialist running backs that focus in a specific area, goal-line work, first- and second-down rushers, third-down and pass-catching specialists. This has resulted in a changing landscape of fantasy running backs, and owners need to approach the position differently than they have in the past.

We’ve recently released our deep dive into running backs via our podcast, where we go over 30+ running backs and how to navigate the position in general. Beyond that, our own Mike Tagliere (@MikeTagliereNFL) brings you his five running backs that you need to own this fantasy football season.
