Fantasy Football RB Rankings: Week 10

The running back group is thin this year, meaning you might be in a tough spot at times this season. The byes only make it worse. At least you have my rankings to help you out. I list the top 45, because beyond that, there aren't many players worth owning.

Byes: Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers & Washington Redskins

Last Update: Nov. 8

Other Rankings: QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF

Rank & Player Opponent Notes
1. DeMarco Murray, DAL @JAC Of course you're playing Murray.
2. Matt Forte, CHI @GB Four straight 20-plus point weeks? Yeah, I'd recommend playing Forte.
3. Marshawn Lynch, SEA NYG Lynch scored twice last week and has a good matchup.
4. LeSean McCoy, PHI CAR The touches and yards are there. Now just wait for the TDs.
5. Andre Ellington, ARI STL Ellington is a stud. Don't you dare sit him.
6. Jamaal Charles, KC @BUF Not an ideal matchup, but Charles is still a stud.
7. Le'Veon Bell, PIT @NYJ Bell has been killing it. Keep playing him, despite his mediocre matchup.
8. Eddie Lacy, GB @NO His usage isn't as high as it should be, but he's still worth starting.
9. Jeremy Hill, CIN CLE If Bernard can't go, Hill is a borderline RB1. UPDATE: Tough game for Hill and the Bengals.
10. Ronnie Hillman, DEN @OAK Hillman has played great in the absence of Montee Ball. He's got a great matchup this week.
11. Mark Ingram, NO SF Ingram has played great the past two weeks, but has a difficult matchup.
12. Bobby Rainey, TB ATL With Martin out, Rainey is a quality start.
13. Justin Forsett, BAL TEN Forsett looks like the Ravens' lead back.
14. Denard Robinson, JAC DAL I never thought I'd see Denard Robinson be a solid fantasy starter.
15. Lamar Miller, MIA @DET No Moreno is great for Miller, but this is a bad matchup.
16. Joique Bell, DET @ATL Bell has a terrible matchup this week.
17. Frank Gore, SF @NO Not a perfect matchup for Gore, who has struggled since Week 5.
18. Terrance West, CLE @CIN It appears that West has taken over as the starting RB in Cleveland. UPDATE: A solid 15 points for Cleveland's new starter.
19. Chris Ivory, NYJ PIT Ivory gets a sizable amount of touches, but he's a plodder who needs TDs to be an effective fantasy player.
20. Reggie Bush, DET MIA Bush should return this week, against his old team. However, the Dolphins stop the run well.
21. Steven Jackson, ATL @TB Jackson's value comes from touchdowns, but he has a solid matchup.
22. Darren McFadden, OAK DEN McFadden is the starter, but has a bad matchup.
23. Tre Mason, STL ARI I think Mason is the "No. 1" in St. Louis, but this is a tough matchup. He's the guy to own on the Rams, but don't play him.
24. Andre Williams, NYG @SEA Williams hasn't looked like more than a plodder and has a bad matchup.
25. Anthony Dixon, BUF KC Dixon got plenty of carries last time out, but didn't do much against a good Jets run defense. I wouldn't get my hopes up for a change against the Chiefs.
26. Bishop Sankey, TEN @BAL Sankey is getting the touches, but needs to start producing.
27. Darren Sproles, PHI CAR I don't think Sproles is 100 percent.
28. Lorenzo Taliaferro, BAL TEN Taliaferro is the Ravens' touchdown vulture.
29. Ben Tate, CLE @CIN It looks like Tate's poor play has cost him the starting job. UPDATE: A vultured touchdown helped give Tate owners a solid 11 points.
30. DeAngelo Williams, CAR @PHI Williams is the starter, but this isn't a great matchup.
31. Charles Sims, TB ATL Sims hasn't played yet, but he's worth monitoring.
32. Carlos Hyde, SF @NO Hyde has potential, but hasn't gotten the chance to capitalize on it.
33. Theo Riddick, DET MIA I'm not sure how high Riddick's value is with Bush likely returning.
34. Benny Cunningham, STL ARI Cunningham is the No. 2 back, but that doesn't mean much.
35. Isaiah Crowell, CLE @CIN Crowell is the No. 3 back in Cleveland. He's received just one carry in the past two weeks. UPDATE: All three Browns RBs put up at least 10 points. Wow.
36. Jonathan Stewart, CAR @PHI Stewart is the backup for Williams. He's barely worth owning, let along playing.
37. Chris Johnson, NYJ PIT Don't even think about it.
38. James Starks, GB CHI Starks' touches have dropped lately.
39. Bryce Brown, BUF KC He's worth monitoring, but not playing.
40. Khiry Robinson, NO SF With Ingram back, Robinson's value plummets.
41. Travaris Cadet, NO SF Cadet has passed Pierre Thomas as the Saints' go-to pass catching tailback. He is only worth a look in PPR formats though.
42. Zac Stacy, STL @ARI Feel free to cut Stacy. He didn't have a single carry last week.
43. Antone Smith, ATL @TB Despite being a big-play threat, Smith hasn't gotten enough touches.
44. Knile Davis, KC @BUF Even with Charles back, Davis is worth keeping. But don't play him.
45. Gio Bernard, CIN CLE Bernard is out Thursday night.
