Week 18 Running Back Rankings for Fantasy Football: Cam Akers, Jerick McKinnon, David Montgomery, Rachaad White, Zack Moss

D'Andre Swift - Fantasy Football Rankings, NFL DFS Lineup Picks

Week 18 of the NFL season is always difficult to analyze for fantasy and DFS because there will be some teams playing all their starters, some teams pulling starters early, and a handful of teams not playing any starters at all. However, that's just part of the season we have to navigate for fantasy leagues that extend to the final week of the NFL's regular season. Our updated Week 18 fantasy football running back rankings, as of January 4th will help you sort through all the variables. Our goal is to help you set those winning lineups, so let's see where key running backs like Cam Akers, Jerick McKinnon, David Montgomery, Rachaad White, and Zack Moss rank, among others.

Our running back fantasy football rankings are put together by Nick Mariano, Brandon Murchison and Andersen Pickard. In addition to our staff rankings, below you will also find a summary of the important fantasy football injury news for this week. There are always key injuries to keep track of, so be sure to check back until kickoff.

You should also bookmark our fantasy football rankings portal and check back regularly for updates. In addition to these RB rankings, read our fantasy football articles and analysis - our NFL team discusses lineup sleepers, busts, NFL players to start and sit, waiver wire pickups and so much more. Most importantly, our brand new free mobile app is a must-have - download it and configure your notifications. We deliver all the top NFL news, injuries, and fantasy analysis 24x7 with our free push notification alerts!
