Editor’s Note: Welcome to Week 8! How many running backs can you really trust to have a big game this week? Go through the rankings right now and run through them right now; I think I count seven. Maybe you call it eight, between Alvin Kamara or Latavius Murray if Kamara can’t play. For as much as running back has dominated this Fantasy season, there are still a ton of question marks around the position.
Of course, there are a lot more starting running back spots available, and plenty of running backs who should be good, even if you don’t necessarily trust them — your Devonta Freeman, Aaron Jones, and Sony Michel types can get you through the top-18 or so at the position where you aren’t really making a start or sit decision.
After that, things get truly dice-y. What should you do with Arizona’s backfield? What about San Francisco’s? Or Denver’s? And what about those waiver wire adds you made this week? Can you trust Ty Johnson to get 15 touches? Will the Dolphins move the ball enough to make Mark Walton relevant? There are as almost as many unanswered questions at the position as there are starting spots to fill.
That’s what Jamey Eisenberg is here to help you with. Dive into Jamey’s Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em running backs here for help on those tough lineup questions, and then check out Heath Cummings’ RB preview for projections, numbers to know, and more. Come back later in the day for the rest of the positions for Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em.
