The running back position seems like it’s being devalued in the NFL, and that’s almost reflective of how things have been turning out in fantasy football. No, we still have to start two per week, and they still get drafted highly. But, there are less and less automatic fantasy RB1s available, and more committees to sift through.
That’s why stalwarts like Christian McCaffrey, Austin Ekeler and Nick Chubb are so valuable in our game. While McCaffrey is the unanimous top-ranked running back this season, there’s a debate who should be next off the board.
We also have some fresh faces like Bijan Robinson in the fold, a talented young back who’s set for a big workload in his respective backfield. Some are even calling Robinson the second coming of Saquon Barkley — but maybe even better.
