Fournette should not even be on the list as he is not playing. I think these ranks are silly in-season as it will change every week

Use it for gauging trades, is how I see it.

STANDARD TOP 30

 

Tier 1 - league winners

1. Todd Gurley - no explanation needed

2. Alvin Kamara - even with Ingram I don't see him declining much if at all as goalline TDs aren't the source of his production

3. Saquon Barkley - talent + usage, he seems incredibly safe

4. Ezekial Elliot - despite the early hiccups he's still RB9 and his workload isnt going anywhere

5. Melvin Gordon - 3 down back on an elite offense

 

Tier 2 - RB1s

6. Leonard Fournette - looks like he's coming back soon and he's in the perfect situation for RB production

7. Kareem Hunt - efficiency and touches are down but solid floor in standard scoring as the RB for the best offense in the NFL

8. Joe Mixon - injury still scares me but all reports are very positive and he has the upside of reaching the tier 1 with his talent + usage + improved offense

9. Dalvin Cook - great talent + productive offense. Lat Murray doesnt scare me that much but the injury does

10. Christian McCaffery - don't totally believe in his usage from last week but offers an awesome floor every week

 

Tier 3 - Solid RB2s

11. James Conner - as long as he plays he's in the high end of Tier 2 but the risk of Bell is still there

12. David Johnson - offense is so awful but usage keeps him here

13. Jordan Howard - usage will keep him here in standard

14. Mark Ingram - upside to be higher but track record isn't good of older players coming back from PED suspensions

 

Tier 4 - Giant Glob of RB2s/RB3s

15. Tevin Coleman - like Conner he's Tier 2 as long as he plays, the Freeman injury scares me so big upside present + even if Freeman returns he's still a solid flex

16. Kenyan Drake - I'm buying him still as last week was an incredibly odd game for the entire offense

17. Lamar Miller - low upside but safe workload

18. Carlos Hyde - huge workload but presence of Chubb and Duke still scares me and dont totally trust 2 down RB on CLE

19. LeSean McCoy - the offense showed some life last week and the talent is still there

20. Sony Michel - huge upside with Burkhead gone

21. Kerryon Johnson - awesome talent but don't think DET stops using Blount and Riddick, limiting Kerryon to b/w the 20s

22. Devonta Freeman - just get a bad feeling about him this year

23. Alex Collins - looks great but BAL hasn't seemed committed until this past week

24. Jay Ajayi - injuries are already starting

25. Marshawn Lynch - has looked great but TD dependent and age still scares me

26. Matt Breida - losing Jimmy G hurts a lot but still the main RB w/ Shanahan and Hyde still produced last year w/o Jimmy G

27. LeVeon Bell - worth the risk at this spot for me but seriously doubt whether he plays this year

28. Chris Carson - potentially taking over the lead spot but don't think SEA totally abandons their 1st round pick

29. Adrian Peterson - I don't trust him to stay healthy + game script dependent

30. Phillip Lindsay - best RB on Denver

Curious as to how people have the top 10 RB's ranked in PPR.  Here are mine

 

1- Todd Gurley

2- Alvin Kamara(Could drop depending on Ingram usage, particularly red zone usage)

3- Melvin Gordon

4- Saquon Barkley

5- CMC

6- Zeke(still scared of that offense, can increase if he shows this past game wasn't a fluke)

7- Kareem Hunt

8- David Johnson(Another that can move up, but that offense is really bad)

9- Joe Mixon(Coming off injury, can move up if he continues what he was doing)

10- Le'Veon Bell(Weirdest player to rank imo)

 

Thoughts? What are your rankings?

Don't know where i"d rank him right now... but people scoffing at CT need a reality check. He's been an RB1 for a while now in PPR, and an RB2 in Standard.

Don't think he's an RB1, but I'd say hes a solid RB2.

I'd say hes RB15 or around abouts.  Still would rather have Bell, Freeman and such, but he's 100% way better than most people have given him credit for.

In PPR or Standard? In PPR I think CT will finish as an RB1 if he plays 16 games. That If is the biggest issue

Sure. But the question between him and a Mixon or Hunt is highly debatable. CTs last year+ of production are no joke.

I agree with most of it. Only issue I have is Coleman seems a bit too high with Ito Smith looking like the GL back. I'd have James White and Cook in that final tier as well.
