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 in early August.

COMMENTS
  Alvin Kamara, NO: Prime rebound candidate; same age as Zeke with 630 fewer touches.

  Josh Jacobs, LV: Team committed to involving him more often in the passing game in Year 2.

  Miles Sanders, PHI: Huge ceiling, but Eagles have shown no signs of moving away from RBBC.

  Jonathan Taylor, IND: See Miles Sanders; heavy college workload could easily make him a one-contract player.

  Austin Ekeler, LAC: Drop in reception totals almost guaranteed in transition from Philip Rivers to Tyrod Taylor.

  J.K. Dobbins, BAL: Only question seems to be when - not if - he makes Mark Ingram expendable.

  Chris Carson, SEA: Running style opens him up to injury, but few are better when he is healthy.

  Ronald Jones, TB: Threat of Ke'Shawn Vaughn looms, but not enough has been made of RoJo's improvement last year.

  AJ Dillon, GB: Does GB see a Derrick Henry clone here? Aaron Jones/Jamaal Williams set to hit FA market in 2021.

  Ryquell Armstead, JAC: Fournette could be in his last year with Jacksonville, leaving Armstead with big potential workload in 2021.

  Justin Jackson, LAC: Faces serious threat from Joshua Kelley, likely will split Melvin Gordon's old rushing workload.

  Antonio Gibson, WAS: Massive upside, but owners will likely need to exercise patience before seeing the payoff.

  Dare Ogunbowale, TB: Winner of pass-catching role in this offense should be a significant fantasy contributor.

  DeeJay Dallas, SEA: Shaping up to be the early-season complement to injury-prone Chris Carson.
