FANTASY FOOTBALL: PPR RUNNING BACK RANKINGS
When it comes to redraft fantasy football leagues getting your pre-draft rankings correct can be the difference between ending the season a winner or playing the “what if” game. PPR running back rankings mean that we see a boost for those receivers that regularly catch passes. However, while running backs that do not regularly catch passes take a downgrade, volume of carries is still generally king when it comes to the top of the rankings.
Those rankings make decisions on draft day easier, especially if you decide to use a tiers system. It then becomes easy to scan across all of the positions and determine which position is the one you need to take with each selection before the next drop off in talent occurs. If there are still five players left in your tier of quarterbacks and you have four selections between you and your next pick, you can look somewhere else, knowing that a player of equal talent will still be available at your next pick.
The 2020 PPR redraft running back rankings below are based off of a standard league set up of:
- 1 point per reception
- 6 points per rushing or receiving touchdown
- 0.1 points per rushing or receiving yard
