2011 FANTASY FOOTBALL UPDATED RUNNING BACK RANKINGS


Time for our first in-season look at the updated fantasy football running backs.  As always this position is always changing due to injuries and such.  Mauricg different this season as well so lets see where they all currently sit.

1.  Adrian Peterson
2.  Ray Rice
3.  Darren McFadden
4.  Chris Johnson
5.  LeSean McCoy
6.  Michael Turner
7.  Matt Forte
8.  Maurice Jones-Drew
9.  Arian Foster
10. Fred Jackson
11. Peyton Hillis
12. Frank Gore
13. Ahmad Bradshaw
14. Rashard Mendenhall
15. LeGarrette Blount
16. Felix Jones
17. James Starks
18. Daniel Thomas
19. Beanie Wells
20. Mark Ingram

-Injuries and ineffectiveness have ravaged the top of the rankings.  Arian Foster has been a bust due to his bum hammy and Chris Johnson has been invisible due to his long holdout costing him practice time.  Old reliable Adrian Peterson thus deserves the top spot and a very hot Ray Rice is a close second. 
-Darren McFadden has been unbelievable and he basically has been a contributor across the board.  Just stay on the field bro.
-How about the start Matt Forte has had?  He is playing the Marshall Faulk role in the Mike Martz offense which almost guarantees top level production.  A gem in PPR leagues at the very least.
-Daniel Thomas and Roy Helu need to be watched for big showings going forward.  They seem to be nudging the veterans Reggie Bush and Tim Hightower to the side and thus the ceiling is very high for these two guys.
-Frank Gore and Maurice Jones-Drew are two vets off to quiet starts.  Thats what happens when you O-line stinks and you face 8-man fronts due to horrible QB play.  Lets hope it gets better  for these two.

Thats how I see things at this point in the season.  Lets hear what you think about this.
