2016 Fantasy Football PPR Rankings: Week 11 Running Backs

Bunch of tough matchups for the upper-tier RB1s.

Week 11 is here, and so is crunch time. Many of us are in win-or-go-home mode, while others are fighting for the ever important Playoff Bye.  Make sure you’re rolling out the right guys with The Wolf’s PPR Rankings.

Tier 1 – Potential Top Scorers 

1) Le’Veon Bell (PIT) @ CLE

2) DeMarco Murray (TEN) @ IND

Tier 1.5

Normally shoe-ins with  Le’Veon at the top tier, but these matchups are brutal. 

3) David Johnson (ARI) @ MIN

4) Ezekiel Elliott (DAL) vs. BAL

5) LeSean McCoy (BUF) @ CIN

Tier 2 – Remaining RB1s

6) LeGarrette Blount (NE) @ SF

7) Spencer Ware (KC) vs. TB

8) Jay Ajayi (MIA) @ LA

9) Lamar Miller (HOU) @ OAK

10) Latavius Murray (OAK) vs. HOU

11) Theo Riddick (DET) vs. JAC

12) Jonathan Stewart (CAR) vs. NO

Tier 3 – Quality RB2s

The drop off from Tier 2 to Tier 3 is quite steep

13) Jordan Howard (CHI) @ NYG

14) Doug Martin (TB) @ KC

15) C.J. Prosise (SEA) vs. PHI

16) Frank Gore (IND) vs. TEN

17) Todd Gurley (LA)

Tier 3.5

18) Duke Johnson (CLE) vs. PIT – Given Cleveland should be down early and often, I’m feeling a big Duke Johnson day against a Pittsburgh team that surrenders the third most points to RBs.

19) James Starks (GB) @ WAS – Scored double digit points when game flow was not on his side; could have an even higher ceiling in what projects to be a closer battle.

20) Carlos Hyde (SF) vs. NE

21) Robert Kelley (WAS) vs. GB

22) Darren Sproles (PHI) @ SEA

23) James White (NE) @ SF – Monitor Dion Lewis‘ status closely, as White would be very tough to trust should Lewis be active.

Tier 4 – Last startable options

24) Mark Ingram (NO) @ CAR

25) Ryan Mathews (PHI) @ SEA – Mathews comes as a TD dependent guy, but Seattle’s light up front and can be bullied.

25) Thomas Rawls (SEA) vs. PHI

26) Jeremy Hill (CIN) vs. BUF

27) Kenneth Dixon (BAL) @ DAL

28) Dion Lewis (NE) @ SF – If he’s active, Lewis is a decent bet for a TD even in a very limited capacity. He’s that explosive (and San Fran’s that bad)

29) Chris Thompson (WAS) vs. GB

30) Isaiah Crowell (CLE) vs. PIT

31) Terrance West (BAL) @ DAL

32) Rashad Jennings (NYG) vs. CHI

Tier 5 – Wretched

33) Chris Ivory (JAC) @ DET

34) Derrick Henry (TEN) @ IND

35) Tim Hightower (NO) @ CAR

36) Jeremy Langford (CHI) @ NYG

37) Paul Perkins (NYG) vs. CHI

38) Matt Asiata (MIN) vs. ARI

39) Damien WIlliams (MIA) @ LA

40) T.J. Yeldon (JAC) @ DET – Have I told you about Yeldon lately? He sucks.

41) Dwayne Washington (DET) vs. JAC

42) DuJuan Harris (SF) vs. NE

43) Mike Gillislee (BUF) @ CIN

44) DeAndre Washington (OAK) vs. HOU

45) Benny Cunningham (LA) vs. MIA
