Top 15 Fantasy Football RBs For Week 15
Who Makes The Top 15?
The 2012 fantasy football season is nearing its conclusion in the next couple weeks with most leagues already to their semifinal games. It is the time of year where decisions need to be made on who to start and who to sit for the final few weeks. A lot of these decisions seem harder than they really are especially at the running back position where finding a good one is easier said than done.
There are only a few really elite running backs out there in 2012 and as long as you have one of the top 10 to star for your team, you are in good shape. I have put together the top 15 running backs for Week 15 and my predictions on how they will do this week. There are players that could still be on the waiver wire while most are picked up already.
Here are my selections for the top 15 for Week 15 and hopefully each of these running backs can help you this week and then again next week as you try to win your fantasy football championship. It is obvious that some of these players could be a lot better than what I’m predicting but this should be at least be a baseline for you in projecting where each of these players will be after Week 15 gets over with on Monday night. I wish you good luck in this week’s matchup and be sure to put the right running backs into your starting lineup.
