Official 2014 Rankings: Top 75 Running Backs

As the league has become more and more pass-heavy, team’s resort to more and more running back committees to torture fantasy owners and dilute the fantasy talent pool at running back. Jamaal Charles, the #1 RB, had 295 points last season. Only 17 other backs had more than HALF of that total. The #20 RB, Danny Woodhead, had just 132. We’re living in a world where Danny Woodhead, who didn’t get double digit carries in a game all year, was a RB2 last year.

This values true RB1s at absurdly high prices, and after about #14 on our list (Le’Veon Bell), it’s hard to look at any RB as a “safe” option from week to week. We do our best to make sense of the madness below, with a variety of runners coming in across the rankings.
