Fantasy RB rankings for week 10

Things looked bleak at certain points last week, but then Christian McCaffrey and David Montgomery came back from the IR and we managed to get through the week with just a couple of notable new injuries. Sure, it’s a bummer to be without Derrick Henry (foot), but our Week 10 fantasy RB rankings still look pretty solid.

The four teams in goodbye – Bears, Texans, Giants, Bengals – do not have the strongest group of running backs. Joe Mixon will be missed, but fantasy owners are used to being without Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Montgomery. Khalil Herbert and Devontae Booker have certainly had their moments, but you can’t be too upset when players who were waived less than a month ago take the week off. And you can’t get angry when David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay say goodbye, either. If anything, be thankful that you don’t have to force one into your flex.

Even though the byes aren’t too harsh for idle RBs, they do eliminate some great matchups. The Texans, Giants and Bears were the top 10 in terms of fantasy points per game (FPPG) allowed to RBs heading into Week 9. That means fewer potential sleepers and / or high-level studs, which means a more likely to have to. take risks with your RB2 spot or use a WR on your flex.

The consequences of that can be seen in all the top backs who have tough matches this week. James Robinson (@ Colts), D’Andre Swift (@ Steelers), Damien Harris (vs. Browns), Darrell Henderson (@ 49ers) and Michael Carter (vs. Bills) are all difficult to bench because of their talents and roles. . but the sled will be more difficult for everyone. Carter is likely still in the early bubble, feel it, but his recent surge in volume and production, particularly in the passing game, should keep him in the lineups as at least a flex.

Not only does Antonio Gibson (vs. Bucs) have a brutal showdown, but questions remain about his health and use. Maybe after a goodbye, your shin will be better and you can handle a full series of taps, but considering Jaret Patterson beat him in Week 8 and JD McKissic has been more valuable overall the last two games, Gibson is, in the best, a push-up this week. The Titans ‘team, Adrian Peterson and Jeremy McNichols (against the Saints), and the Cardinals’ team, James Conner and Chase Edmonds (against the Panthers) are also in difficult situations. Peterson and Conner have more standard value thanks to their respective upside TD.

Very favorable matchups await the Bills duo of Zack Moss and Devin Singletary (@ Jets), the Broncos duo Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon (against Eagles), and a packed Ravens backfield led by Latavius ​​Murray. and Devonta Freeman (@ Dolphins). when everyone is healthy. Boston Scott and Jordan Howard (@ Broncos), Kenyan Drake (vs. Chiefs), Nyheim Hines (vs. Jaguars), and AJ Dillon (vs. Seahawks) are also in good places if you want to go a little deeper, but Drake and Hines are a better fit. to the PPR leagues.

There are still several hit backs that we will see this week. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee), Chris Carson (neck) and Kareem Hunt (calf) are eligible to exit the IR, but it is unclear if any have a real chance of being activated. Continue trading as if you didn’t have any available, and if they come back, you can adjust from there.

Overall, there are still plenty of good options despite some of the typical hurdles this week. Most importantly, at least a couple of injured stars are making a comeback. In some ways that makes navigating the position more difficult, but having multiple viable options is better than having a mediocre option.

Note: We will update these RB rankings throughout the week, so check back for the analysis and the latest player movement.
