September 5, 2013

See the Latest Odds


It’s officially time for our Week 1 batch of fantasy football rankings, and in this edition we’re looking at running backs. Outside of the top dozen or so names here, RB will be a difficult position to nail down. There’s a lot of uncertainty lying within the lower rankings, so several mid-to-low-end flex plays will likely end up as leaps of faith. That said, let’s take a look at our top 40 RB rankings based on the matchups for Week 1. Don’t forget to check up on any injury concerns before kickoff.
