Week 15 Fantasy Rankings: Running back

For fantasy owners with Ezekiel Elliott, it may feel like a near-lock win with his return, but for everyone else, our Week 16 RB rankings sort out start-sit decisions to help fantasy owners create their own near-lock feeling for the fantasy football championship .

Throwback games from Kareem Hunt and Jordan Howard might have been too little, too late for some, but the "re-emergence" of both, mixed with the continued breakouts of Jamaal Williams, Mike Davis, and Alex Collins, makes our Week 15 fantasy RB rankings look even more stacked than usual. However, several injuries (Joe Mixon, Alvin Kamara, Adrian Peterson, Ameer Abdullah) and committees will have fantasy owners guessing right up until finalizing their start-sit decisions.

We're banking on Mixon (concussion) and Kamara (concussion) both returning this week, but nothing is set in stone. Likewise, Peterson (neck) and Abdullah (neck) aren't in our rankings yet, but both could easily suit up. Their replacements have looked good in their absences, but if Peterson and Abdullah return, it might actually muddy the waters for fantasy owners.

Further muddying things are the committees in Minnesota, Carolina, Tampa, Denver, New York (x2), and maybe even Philadelphia and Dallas. Tennessee is never fun to deal with either, but with a matchup against San Francisco this week, both Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray can eat. Favorable matchups for the Panthers (vs. Packers), Broncos (@ Colts) and Eagles (@ Giants) should keep all of their main backs in play, but as we saw with Jonathan Stewart's three-TD Week 14, anything can happen in these backfields.

WEEK 15 RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Reminder: We'll update our rankings throughout the week and add player analysis, so please check back often. And here's how you could lose in fantasy in Week 15.
