Welcome to the Week 11 Running Back Rankings. Both of tonight’s backs are stable options. You pretty much know what you’re getting in terms of their roles. Bell plays nearly 100 percent of his team’s snaps and Murray gives up about 33 percent of the action to Derrick Henry.

I’ll be back in a little bit with the wide receivers and the tight ends.

These rankings will be updated on Saturday.

Bye teams:

  • Colts
  • Jets
  • 49ers
  • Panthers

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.  

Rank PLAYER TEAM Cost Matchup PPG THE SKINNY
1 Kareem Hunt KC 8000 KC@NYG 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 21.344 Feels like a get well game to me. The Chiefs had Week 10 off so they should come out fresh and ready.
2 Todd Gurley II LAR 8400 LAR@MIN 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 24.556 He’s produced in a lot of different matchups because he’s been good as a runner and as a receiver. He had 68 yards as both a runner and receiver last week.
3 Mark Ingram NO 8100 WAS@NO 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 18.378 Splitting snaps with Kamara but they run a lot so both backs are getting optimal workloads. Ingram’s a solid RB1 … and so is Kamara.
4 LeSean McCoy BUF 7800 BUF@LAC 11/19/2017 04:05PM ET 16.533 He’s had two tough weeks in succession but you have to assume that they’ll lean on him this week with Peterman making his first NFL start.
5 Alvin Kamara NO 7500 WAS@NO 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 17.778 Should be in the same role we’ve seen in recent weeks and he’s producing very consistently. His versatility makes him close to matchup-proof.
6 Tevin Coleman ATL 5800 ATL@SEA 11/20/2017 08:30PM ET 11.267 Freeman is out so Coleman is a RB1 and a very nice play on DraftKings.
7 Melvin Gordon LAC 7600 BUF@LAC 11/19/2017 04:05PM ET 18.811 Giving up work to Ekeler so no longer a lock for big weekly volume.
8 Jordan Howard CHI 6200 DET@CHI 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 13.911 He should get his 25 carries in this one.
9 Leonard Fournette JAX 8200 JAX@CLE 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 20.829 Keep your head on a swivel here. He’s listed as questionable. Could be anywhere from out to starting.
10 Jay Ajayi PHI 5300 PHI@DAL 11/19/2017 08:30PM ET 10.738 He’s very tough to value because his role is up in the air. I’m playing him as a RB2 with the potential to do just about anything.
11 Adrian Peterson ARI 6000 ARI@HOU 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 8.513 The volume is going to be there.
12 Chris Thompson WAS 5400 WAS@NO 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 16.567 The TDs have dried up in recent weeks but he’s got a steady role. Could easily score a few times in this game.
13 Jamaal Williams GB 4900 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 2.844 Should be the man this week with Jones out and TyMo likely out.
14 Jerick McKinnon MIN 5700 LAR@MIN 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 11.967 The Vikings are always jerking this guy around. This backfield is tough to read right now. There’s a shared approach on early downs and McKinnon should handle most of the passing downs.
15 Lamar Miller HOU 5000 ARI@HOU 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 13.833 He’s getting steady work regardless of game flow. A stable RB2 option.
16 Rex Burkhead NE 3600 NE@OAK 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 10.5 Looking very good now that he’s fully healthy. Seems to have his hands in both the ground game and pass game. Sort of the in-between Pats RB. His versatility was on full display last week in Denver.
17 Orleans Darkwa NYG 4800 KC@NYG 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 8.913 He’s the early down runner now and you have to think he’ll get a chance to set the tone early. If he runs well, he could be in for 20 carries or so.
18 Alfred Morris DAL 4500 PHI@DAL 11/19/2017 08:30PM ET 2.35 Tough matchup on the ground.
19 Marshawn Lynch OAK 4300 NE@OAK 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 8.338 He’s a TD-dependent RB2 right now.
20 Dion Lewis NE 4200 NE@OAK 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 8.044 Getting a solid amount of the early down work. A sldi RB2 play right now.
21 Isaiah Crowell CLE 4100 JAX@CLE 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 10.2 He’s settled in a bit and has been effective the last five weeks or so. He’s scored one in each of the last two weeks. Have to think they will lead with him in this game.
22 Joe Mixon CIN 4000 CIN@DEN 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 10.089
23 Alex Collins BAL 3900 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 7.425
24 Doug Martin TB 4500 TB@MIA 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 9.15 He’s caught in a struggling offense. Just a RB2 right now and it’s tough to predict what this team will do week to week. They are a Fitzmagic team for now.
25 Kenyan Drake MIA 4800 TB@MIA 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 4.533
26 Latavius Murray MIN 4000 LAR@MIN 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 6.267 He’s getting carries every game and looking very ordinary in the process, but it’s predictable production and he scores here and there.
27 Ameer Abdullah DET 4200 DET@CHI 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 9.778
28 Duke Johnson Jr. CLE 4400 JAX@CLE 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 13.2
29 Austin Ekeler LAC 4500 BUF@LAC 11/19/2017 04:05PM ET 8.033
30 James White NE 4700 NE@OAK 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 12.033
31 Samaje Perine WAS 3800 WAS@NO 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 4.167 Will handle Kelley’s role now.
32 C.J. Anderson DEN 4000 CIN@DEN 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 10.089
33 Eddie Lacy SEA 3500 ATL@SEA 11/20/2017 08:30PM ET 3.167
34 Theo Riddick DET 4100 DET@CHI 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 9.156
35 Damien Williams MIA 4500 TB@MIA 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 4.467
36 Javorius Allen BAL 4400 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 12.622 Should be squeezed out this week … if Woodhead plays.
37 Jamaal Charles DEN 4000 CIN@DEN 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 5.722
38 Danny Woodhead BAL 4400 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 6.7 It sounds lied he will play but it’s unclear as to how the Ravens will split the time. Alex Collins should handle early downs but Woodhead and Allen will split the passing situations in some way.

64 Terrance West BAL 3200 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 5.82 Questionable and may not have a role.
65 Wendell Smallwood PHI 3200 PHI@DAL 11/19/2017 08:30PM ET 5.814
66 Alfred Blue HOU 3700 ARI@HOU 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 0.717
67 Darren McFadden DAL 4300 PHI@DAL 11/19/2017 08:30PM ET -0.2

69 Lance Dunbar LAR 3000 LAR@MIN 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 3.1
70 Mike Gillislee NE 3600 NE@OAK 11/19/2017 04:25PM ET 7.313 Seems likely to be inactive
71 Ty Montgomery GB 5200 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 11.45 Ruled out. (ribs)
72 Aaron Jones GB 4600 BAL@GB 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 8.825 OUT (MCL)
73 Ezekiel Elliott DAL 7700 PHI@DAL 11/19/2017 08:30PM ET 22.913 Suspended
74 Devonta Freeman ATL 5500 ATL@SEA 11/20/2017 08:30PM ET 13.022 Ruled out (concussion)
75 Dwayne Washington DET 3600 DET@CHI 11/19/2017 01:00PM ET 1.56 Out. (hip)
76 Le'Veon Bell PIT 9400 TEN@PIT 11/16/2017 08:25PM ET 20.789 (ALREADY PLAYED) He’ll keep grinding it out. Bell gets almost every snap every week so you have a floor to work with. His lack of explosion plays and touchdowns relates to the way the offense as a whole has slowed down.
77 James Conner PIT 4500 TEN@PIT 11/16/2017 08:25PM ET 1.122 (ALREADY PLAYED)
78 DeMarco Murray TEN 4800 TEN@PIT 11/16/2017 08:25PM ET 12.644 (ALREADY PLAYED) They seem to be back to a 2 to 1 ratio (snaps) for Murray and Henry.
79 Derrick Henry TEN 4900 TEN@PIT 11/16/2017 08:25PM ET 8.044 (ALREADY PLAYED) Has big game potential but also has bagel potential.
