17 Boston Scott Eagles vs Buccaneers $5,200
18 Tony Pollard Cowboys vs 49ers $5,400
19 Jordan Howard Eagles vs Buccaneers $4,400

Barring any injuries, these are the 19 running backs who I believe could be fantasy relevant.

Running Back Rankings

  • Elijah Mitchell is severely underpriced considering when he’s healthy, he’s one of the best fantasy backs out there. In the 10 games he played this season, he’s averaged 21 touches and 101 yards per game. There’s no safer running back play this week in my eyes than Mitchell.
  • Don’t get too overconfident with Cam Akers. Neither him nor Sony Michel played very well against the 49ers last week, but he’s still only about 6 months removed from an achilles tear, so Sony Michel should still be the lead back.
  • CEH will be back this week, which means Darrel Williams loses that 15-20 point upside he has without Clyde in the lineup. Both backs will be used in rotation.
