Fantasy RB Week 16 PPR Rankings

Last week was not as disastrous as it could have been at running back. It wasn’t great, injuries and COVID issues still caused a lot of headaches on the squad, but there weren’t many studs from unexpectedly affected studs. More havoc is most likely in the second round of the fantasy football playoffs, so expect many updates to our Week 16 fantasy RB PPR rankings throughout the week.

Ideally, matchups would be the biggest concern, and there are definitely some that could see some regular starters end up on the bench. The toughest decisions in the PPR leagues will be Chase Edmonds (vs. Colts) and Myles Gaskin (@ Saints). They both face brutal opponents, but their high-aim ways generally keep them in the PPR lineups. However, they both struggled last week, and while we can attribute some of that to both of them “returning” to their respective lineups, it still gives us a hiatus this week. Also, in win-or-go-home scenarios like most of those faced now, it’s fair to ask whether a high ceiling or high floor is more valuable. Most of the time, it all comes down to your specific match.

Field marshal | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

James Conner (vs. Colts), Myles Gaskin (@ Saints), Devonta Freeman (@ Bengals), Chuba Hubbard (vs. Buccaneers), D’Onta Foreman (vs. 49ers) and Devin Singletary (@ Patriots) are also in tough spots this week. . Conner could be TD-or-bust in PPR as he doesn’t think he sees that many targets with Edmonds back, but his upside TD is too high to ignore. Foreman is also difficult to sit up, as he gets the vast majority of Tennessee carries, but he’s not sure either. The rest are probably better suited for benches depending on your other options, although some of these opponents (Bengals, Bucs, Pats) give up a fair amount of catches to the RBs. The backs those teams face are simply not reliable enough to produce. That could also be true for Ronald Jones (@ Panthers) if he starts in place of Leonard Fournette (hamstring), as a Conner-like profile would.

If you’re looking for sleepers, the wives of Darrel Williams (vs. Steelers), Sony Michel (@ Vikings), Jordan Howard (@ Giants), and Rex Burkhead (vs. Chargers) have more advantages than usual. Michel and Howard won’t catch a lot of passes, so they are also TDs or bankruptcy, which could make them too risky in PPR formats, but Williams and Burkhead generally get a few catches. In their highly favorable matchups, they could easily pass.

The “frontiers” running backs with the best matchups are Darrell Henderson (@ Vikings), Michael Carter (vs. Jaguars), Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams (@ Raiders), Clyde Edwards-Helaire (vs. Steelers), Miles Sanders (@ Giants)) and Detroit starter (@ Falcons), who is likely Jamaal Williams. They should all be played this week in 12-team leagues, as all are capable of catching at least a handful of passes to accompany what should be solid days on the ground.

As we said before, there will be a lot of changes throughout the week in these rankings, so be sure to handcuff your best RBs. It wouldn’t hurt to handcuff your handcuffs if you have enough space on your list. It’s going to be a crazy last two weeks (Craig Reynolds and Duke Johnson, anyone?), So be prepared if you’re still alive for your fantasy title.

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