The 33rd Team’s weekly top-10 RB rankings are a snapshot of where the league’s best running backs are right now, taking into account the player’s recent production, health, and an evaluation by our scouting department, led by former NFL team executive T.J. McCreight and assisted by scouts Justin Casey, Kevin Cohn and Evan Pritt.

Other Week 7 rankings: QB | WR

1. Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns

Carries: 110 | Yards: 649 | TD: 7 | Explosive Plays: 7 | Previous Rank: 1

2. Saquon Barkley, New York Giants

Carries: 119 | Yards: 616 | TD: 4 | Explosive Plays: 5 | Previous Rank: 2
