Top 80 Running Backs For 2020

Erik Smith ranks his top 80 running backs for the 2020 season, with ranks updated on August 30.

Running back is where you can truly win or lose your fantasy football league, as stars rise and fall faster than any other position. It pays to be early on young running backs before their ADP skyrockets, and hanging on one year too long can sink your season if a veteran running back falls off a cliff.

While early-round running backs are key to winning fantasy championships, leagues are often won by managers that can find that late-round diamond in the rough. These rankings were updated on 8/30, though injuries are currently hot and heavy, with little to no details in some circumstances. Use the latest information you can find when deciding on injured players on draft day.

All ranks are based on PPR scoring. All tiers are named after PS4 games because, well, I’ve been quarantined for the past five months after all. What did you think I was doing with my time, being productive?!
