Preseason Running Back Rankings

Historically the most important position in fantasy football, committees and a shift in play calling has really watered down the running back position in recent years. I have been asked several times this offseason about tiers, and while I don’t think there is a ton of use for setting up tiers, there are clear tiers in this year’s running back class. Looking at the rankings, I would set tiers at 1-3, 4-10, 11-15, 16-24, and 25-35.
