Use these player salaries as context for building your Week 1 OwnersBox lineups. There is some great value at the running back position. With salaries being set weeks in advance they cannot be changed. Injuries and depth chart movement has impacted the value of these players salary significantly.

Running Back Rankings

  • James Robinson is in a terrific matchup against Houston in Week 1 and without Travis Etienne alongside him he has top 10 upside.
  • Chase Edmonds has begun to assert himself as the leader in the backfield and has another great matchup with the Titans leaky defense.
  • The uncertainty of Carson Wentz and Quenton Nelson could lead to a difficult matchup for the high priced Jonathan Taylor against Seattle
