RB Rankings Week 8 (updated Saturday)

Welcome to the Week 8 Running Back Rankings!

No Zeke this week and no Mark Ingram either, but that’s par for bye week course.  We also have Kamara and David Johnson almost assuredly out due to injury.  That’s a solid chunk out of the usual top 15 running backs.

The good news is that, unlike with the receivers, we have a pretty good idea of where the volume will go with the players who remain.

My main regret in DFS this week is that Dalvin’s off the main slate.  I’d be playing him a lot if he was.  Consider him if you play the T-M slate.

For the main slate, there are plenty of good options at cost, like Latavius Murray and Chase Edmonds–assuming the starters remain out.  Ty Johnson is another solid cost-saver, so we have some ways to build cap space without sacrificing too much.

The bigger question is, how shall we apply our savings?  I’ll endeavor to answer that question on the DFS podcast.

I’ll be back in a bit with the tight ends.  And, they will be a little light on the commentary as well–until the updates.

Bye losses: Cowboys & Ravens.
