Considerations for RB
  • Talent
  • Two years of solid (or better) production remaining
  • Age
  • Durability
  • Proven consistency
  • Age/skill of supporting cast
  • Coaching/scheme stability/situation
These rankings are for PPR leagues, where each touchdown is worth six points. I will release my next set of rankings after the NFL Draft.

COMMENTS
  Dalvin Cook, MIN: Probably needs only one fully healthy season to be considered a Tier 1 back.

  Austin Ekeler, LAC: Showed he could be a featured back for a month; will he get the chance to do it over a full season in 2020?

  Derrius Guice, WAS: Hard to imagine the football gods could curse him for a third straight season.

  Rashaad Penny, SEA: Faces the real possibility of starting the season on the PUP list after suffering torn ACL in early December.

  Raheem Mostert, SF: Easy player to root for, but age makes it hard to believe he's worth much of an investment in dynasty.

  David Johnson, ARI: Figures to get one more shot to prove his lack of explosion in 2019 was an anomoly.

  Justin Jackson, LAC: Couldn't seem to shake calf injury in 2019 but should enter 2020 as high-end handcuff to Ekeler.

  Boston Scott, PHI: A strong candidate to occupy Darren Sproles' old role in what should be a dynamic offense.

  Bryce Love, WAS: Favorite to inherit Chris Thompson role with the veteran headed for the open market.
