Fantasy Football: Week 5 Running Back Rankings
Ranking the top running backs week to week is a bit more difficult than ranking signal-callers.
Especially when there are certain running back by committee situations to keep an eye on, such as the San Diego Chargers situation. Ryan Mathews is clearly the most talented back on the roster, but Jackie Battle is listed as the starter on the Chargers depth chart.
Should make for a very interesting Sunday of football.
Anyway, the show must go on. So let’s take a look at my top 30 running backs for this week’s action.
