By Sgt. Alexander Martinez (15th Wing) [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsWith so much volatility around the NFL given the recent string of injuries, especially to running backs, there have been a lot of changes already with the backfields of many NFL teams.

Running backs are a critical component and core building block for all fantasy football teams, so it's important to stay on top of the running back situations and any depth chart changes throughout each week of the fantasy football season.

Due to the nature of the NFL, running back is one of the most volatile positions in fantasy football, and one of the highest turnover positions in the NFL year-to-year and week-to-week. By staying on top of all the running back changes and in-season position battles, you can adjust your rosters off the waiver wire, find sleepers or potential breakouts, and dominate your fantasy football leagues.
