RB Rankings Week 6 (updated Saturday)

Welcome to the Week 6 RB Rankings!

Yikes.  It’s sort of ugly out there for running backs.  The Saints took two of the top 12 guys with them on their bye week.  We’re missing several more to injury and the NFL is throwing the ball a ton.  It’s tough sledding if you are searching for options.  I’ll be working on the backs more than any other position between now and the update and I’ll try to find better answers with the guys between 20 and 50 in these rankings.

For DFF this week, I want to pay up for Gurley if I can find a budgetary path to him.  I’m also liking Melvin Gordon, James Conner, Mixon, and TJ Yeldon to name a few.  Bilal Powell and Tevin Coleman look like potential money-savers depending on how the injury situations play out on their teams.  I’ll get deep into this stuff on Saturday’s DFF podcast.

I’ll be back in a bit with the TEs.

Bye teams: Saints & Lions.
