Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorers

1. David Johnson (ARI) @ BUF

2. DeAngelo Williams (PIT) @ PHI

Tier 2 – RB1s

3. Lamar Miller (HOU) @ NE

4. C.J. Anderson (DEN) @ CIN

5. Ezekiel Elliott (DAL) vs. CHI

6. Todd Gurley (LA) @ TB

15. Spencer Ware (KC) vs. NYJ

16. Eddie Lacy (GB) vs. DET – Update – The team has stated numerous times they will feed Eddie the rock more often this Sunday.  We can consider this a real measuring stick game for the rest of Lacy’s 2016.

17. Christine Michael (SEA) vs. SF  – Update – Pete Carroll has said Michael’s on track for 20+ carries against a soft San Fran defense, giving him a real shot at 100+ yards and a TD.

Tier 4 – Remaining RB2s

18. Frank Gore (IND) vs. SD

19. Tevin Coleman (ATL) vs. HOU

20. Latavius Murray (OAK) @ TEN

21. Ryan Mathews (PHI) vs. PIT

22. Isaiah Crowell (CLE) @ MIA

23. Jeremy Langford (CHI) @ DAL

24. LeGarrette Blount (CHI) @ DAL

Tier 5 – RB3s

25. Jerick McKinnon (MIN) @ CAR

26. Rashad Jennings (NYG) vs. WAS

27. Matt Jones (WAS) @ NYG

28. Giovani Bernard (CIN) vs. DEN

29. Duke Johnson (CLE) @ MIA

30. Carlos Hyde (SF) @ SEA

Tier 6 – If you’re desperate…

31. Shane Vereen (NYG) vs. WAS

32. Matt Asiata (MIN) @ CAR

33. Derrick Henry (TEN) vs. OAK

34. Justin Forsett (BAL) @ JAC

35. Jeremy Hill (CIN) vs. DEN

36. Dwayne Washington (DET) @ GB

37. Darren Sproles (PHI) vs. PIT

38. Jay Ajayi (MIA) vs. CLE

39. James White (NE) vs. HOU

40. Fozzy Whittaker (CAR) vs. MIN)

Tier 7 – Why?

41. UPDATE Chris Ivory (JAC) vs. BAL – Ivory’s set to return after practicing two straight days. If you’re digging down this deep, a legit shot at a TD is all you can hope for, and the Jaguars offense should give him at least a 40% shot.

42. Kenyan Drake (MIA) vs. CLE

43. Terrance West (BAL) @ JAC

44. UPDATE T.J. Yeldon (JAC) vs. BAL – With Chris Ivory looking set to return and own the stripe, Yeldon loses any starter appeal. Maybe he’ll get 10 carries for 20 yards and a couple cheap catches, but hopefully you have better

45.  Jordan Howard (CHI) @ DAL

46. Josh Ferguson (IND) vs. SD

47. Chris Thompson (WAS) @ NYG

48. Alfred Morris (DAL) vs. CHI

49. Jacquizz Rodgers (TB) vs. LA

50. Dexter McCluster (SD)  @ IND

51. Jalen Richard (OAK) @ TEN

52. Charcandrick West (KC) vs. NYJ
