Running Back Rankings for All 10 Teams
We all know that as the running back position goes, typically, the team goes. So for this week’s edition for Frank’s Power Rankings I will be diving into each teams running back room* as well as adding my overall power rankings as I always do.
*This does not include players on IR
1.) The Cum Rivers – At first glance the Cum Rivers seem to be lacking the big name guy to carry a team to a championship, however, they do have depth and great young players who will continue to blossom this season. There is not a team in the league that can trot out a better starting three running backs than Chris Carson, Kareem Hunt and Josh Jacobs. If someone can emerge at WR for Ryan he could make a push inside, oops I mean at, a Naomi this year.
2.) Jafars – Take everything I said about the Cum Rivers and flip in and reverse it Missy Elliott style because Jason trots out a true workhouse back in Zeke and a touchdown hungry Todd Gurley. Beyond those two it looks bleak but those guys provide the talent to keep him up high.
3.) Mayback’s Boy – Donald is always trying to keep up with the Jones’s. With Ronald Jones emergence and Aaron Jones steady volume alongside key contributions from Mostert and oh did I forget the two former top 10 backs with new teams on his bench? With plenty of shiny new toys to play with Donald should be able to find a combo that works and works well.
4.) Busy Lawyer Boy – Josh is another player whos strength is in numbers. He has 4-5 guys who can contribute at a flex or RB2 level. Problem is he is the worst coach of all time (aside from Keegan) and he simply will not play the correct guy. Sucks.
5.) The Mahomies – With a swift pick up of Mike Davis Zeglen has actually secured a nice little squad to choose from. Tractorcito and Jerrick Mckinnon are in line to continue to get a large workload and until CMC is doing his steed shit again it looks like Mike Davis will continue to be a volume machine all over the field.
6.) Sad Boy Greg – I mean he must have really pissed off the fantasy gods. His team on paper is a playoff caliber team and as we sit here today he simply can’t put it together. If I rattled off Kenyan Drake, Darrel Henderson, David Johnson, CEH, and Devin Singletary I don’t think many people would say no to that. I don’t even know what to say, poor guy.
7.) Injury Bug Don – The surprise of all surprises, Don Eaves is so low for one reason only. Injuries. With Mixon, Chubb and Sanders healthy he is a no brainer top 3 guy at the RB position but that is not the case. His only real hope while he waits out the ouchies is that Chase Edmonds will go X-Games mode again.
8.) Frank and his Firesale – Getting Dalvin back will be huge but while we wait I may have something in DJ Swift, if only Jordan had accepted the trade for him, or Keegan for that matter. Dalvin, Swift and Montgomery is a mixed match group of idiots but they are my idiots so back off!
9.) Josh Allen’s Personal Cum Guzzler – Alvin Kamara puts this group on his back, too bad Gordon had to hit the bottle and drag race to Boulder. With Gordon in this is a top 5 unit but who knows what happens with that buffoon. No one else is worth mentioning. All Hail Alvin.
10.) Jordan – Sorry I have no clever nickname because simply put, the team is filled with dudes who would lose to Jason in a race. It is pathetic, not even sad. Someone pissed on Jordan’s Menorah this year for sure.
2.) Don Eaves
4.) The Keegan
