With the better half of the league's running backs watching football from wheelchairs and hospital beds, there were not many stellar RB performances in Week 13. Only one man eclipsed 20 standard fantasy points and nobody scored more than one touchdown. At this point in the season, most backfield situations have been sured up, leaving... Read More

As we near the conclusion of the fantasy football regular season, the running back pool has run thin amid a flurry of injuries and committees. Those of you wise and fortunate enough to have brandished top waiver wire priorities will have a shot to grab meaningful RB pieces to help propel your team over the... Read More

Now that all of the NFL bye weeks are in the past, it's time to get serious and look at the big picture for the remaining weeks of the regular season. Believe it or not, there is more than a handful of capable waiver wire options available across multiple league formats. The AFC East, for... Read More

Week 9 shall be dubbed the week of the handcuff. Two of the top three scorers this week were backup running backs just a week ago, thrust into prominence by injury or other circumstances. On the contrary some of the top scoring backs from this season took a step backwards in Week 9, particularly a... Read More

Week 8 was just awful. It was a gut-wrenching week for fantasy owners as a handful of key pieces were silenced by serious injuries. If you were fortunate enough to have a healthy roster by the end of this week's action, count your blessings. There was simply a shortage of dominant performances from RBs all... Read More

The NFL action in Week 7 was lacking something. What could it have been?... Oh! Three of the best five teams in the NFL didn't play. There were plenty of meaningless games, head-scratching blowouts, and devastating injuries in Week 7, leading to a ton of garbage time yardage and backups getting the chance to shine. Four...

Week 6 was odd. There's no other way to put it. Every RB in the AFC East (a division with historically poor running back play over the years) had a magnificent performance and seem poised for future success as well. On the contrary, Every back in the AFC West, which has purported impressive RB play... Read More

Week 5 of NFL action brought a lot of surprises and bad news for many. The most glaring concern is the injury to Chiefs star running back Jamaal Charles. The diagnosis of a torn ACL means that the oft-injured Charles is done for the season, opening up the door for two relatively-unproven half backs and... Read More

Week 4 is in the books and trends are starting to emerge in the NFL. The league's running back situation is surprising to say the least. Four of the top-10 fantasy RBs were assumed to be backups at the beginning of the year. Heck, some of them are still backups capitalizing on injuries in their... Read More

Week 2 was full of wacky and wild performances and the injury bug was in full contagion. For the most part, injuries were isolated to quarterbacks, defensive players and big men. Oddly enough, most running backs were spared. That didn't stop a handful of teams from completely changing their rushing attack over the course of... Read More

This may be an unpopular opinion, but the fantasy performances of Week 1 were largely uninspiring. Only four running backs surpassed 20 points in standard fantasy scoring, as nearly 75 percent of the top 30 ranked running backs failed to live up to Week 1 projections. Still, in the spirit of NFL unpredictability, two of... Read More

With the NFL season underway, it is time to take a close look at the landscape of the league and determine where true fantasy football value lies. Owning and starting the right running backs can be a big difference maker in your week to week matchups. We are here to help you plan your running backs strategy, and... Read More
