Chet’s 2013 Running Back Rankings May 4, 2013  |  Chet

Good day Mr. and Mrs. The Fake Football and all the ships at sea! I’ve now given you my take on the Fantasy Football Quarterbacks for 2013, so let’s move on to the Fantasy Football Running Backs.

Once again we are using the FantasyPros ranker which is a cool tool and you should check out their site. I have to say it’s one of my favorites. The guys over at 4for4 averaged out the last three seasons of accuracy results and I finished fifth, which makes me happy that I’m not always just blindly throwing crap against the wall to see what sticks.

Running backs are my favorite position to horde and with only 10-15 that I really would feel good about as my top 2 backs, there’s a good chance I’ll be grabbing them in rounds one and two this season. A falling Calvin Johnson or Rob Gronkowski may change my mind, but I have a feeling they won’t fall as far as I’d like.

    im in a 3 keeper 16 team league, i dont have a 2nd rnd pick (as i traded it for mikel leshoure) i also stashed ivory on my bench late last year and wondering who i should keep reggie bush (which makes me trading for leshoure that much more fustrating) or chris ivory? my other two keepers are andrew luck and larry fitz. I know bush might be good but i feel like mikel will steal all the goal line carries and hurt his td chances big time and kinda like ivory’s explosivness and potential.

    I don’t know if my other comment went through or not but I was wondering what you thought about Marshawn Lynch and the 3 rb situation in SEA? Also what rb has the highest floor? Who are you least worried about going into the season?

  3. Zach says:

    How many carries a game do you think Marshawn Lynch will get? What running back are you least concerned about this year? Who has the highest floor?

    • Chet says:

      I think Lynch holds onto his carries as long as he’s healthy. I feel pretty good about Doug Martin staying healthy due to his compact running style. Peterson is just a crazy lunatic, so you just go with it.

  4. Will says:

    What are your thoughts on Lamar Miller, rb, Miami? Unproven, injury concerns, but . . . may get opportunity as an “every down back” this year?

    • Chet says:

      I like his ability a lot. I don’t love the Dolphins line, but he can work around that. I don’t see him as a 20 carry guy, so I think Gillislee will see some work and that’s who I would handcuff him with.
