RB Rankings Week 16 (updated Saturday)

Welcome to the Week 16 Running Back Rankings!

The top 24 or so options are looking pretty strong this week, so hopefully you can work within that grouping, but I will continue to scan the wires for good info on the RB3/flex range guys to see if we can gain any edges when we set our lineups for the big games this weekend.




For DFS purposes, there is a lot to like.  Here are the backs that I am looking at for my Week 16 DFS rosters.

  • Zeke Elliott
  • Christian McCaffrey
  • Saquon Barkley
  • Nick Chubb
  • Derrick Henry
  • Joe Mixon
  • Marlon Mack
  • Dalvin Cook
  • Tarik Cohen
  • Jamaal Williams
  • Tevin Coleman
  • Damien Williams

I’ll be shaving this group down considerably between now and when I record the DFS pod tomorrow afternoon.  A lot of good choices.

I’ll be back in a bit with the tight ends.

This article will be updated on Saturday.


Week 16 Rankings:


***UPDATE***  Spencer Ware is now doubtful, so bump Damien Williams up a slot or two and get ready to play without Ware.  The Saturday update will reflect this in the rankings.


Lastly, you will notice that I’ve added the “DONATE” button at  the top of the right hand column of the home page.

For those who’ve benefitted from Rotobahn, a donation would be greatly appreciated as it will fuel our future.  As I said back in August, we want to prove ourselves rather than sell you with a flashy sales pitch.

I hope we have.

All Rotobahn rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.
