Fantasy Football 2021 Rankings: Running Backs

Drafting the right RB in fantasy could be the difference between winning and losing your league. It is imperative to get a consistent RB1 that you can depend on week in and week out. That being said, injuries often derail ones’ fantasy team, especially with running backs. Names like Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Joe Mixon and Austin Ekeler all missed at least six games last season. Finding a good running back that can give production for 17 weeks is a blessing to fantasy managers. Here are our rankings for half-point PPR RBs for 2021.
