Updated Fantasy Football RB Rankings

With the suspension of Adrian Peterson coming after the start of the NFL season, many fantasy owners were stuck between a rock and a hard place on how to replace him. Matt Asiata spent weeks 2 -5 as the Vikings feature back, scoring 4 TDs, 3 in one game.  Jerick McKinnon has seen double digit carries in 4 of the last 5 games, and rushed for 100+ yards twice but has yet to score a TD and is not involved in the pass game.  During the last 5 weeks, only DeMarco Murray, Arian Foster and Matt Forte have rushed for more yards.

Justin Forsett has done a nice job in Baltimore filling in for Ray Rice, and while many thought it would have been Bernard Pierce, he has missed weeks 3,4 and 8.

Braden Oliver wasn't even ranked by Fantasy Pros prior to the season (146 ranked), with Ryan Mathews, Danny Woodhead and Donald Brown ahead of him on the depth chart.  His days as a relevant player are limited though, with Mathews & Brown set to return any day now.

Ahmad Bradshaw has scored 6 of his 8 touchdowns via pass from Andrew Luck.  Prior to last season, Eli Manning had thrown just 3 TDs to Bradshaw over 6 seasons with the Giants.

Of the 29 backs with 75+ carries, only LeSean McCoy, Le'Veon Bell, Frank Gore, and Bishop Sankey have yet to score more than 1 rushing TDs.  As mentioned before, Jerick McKinnon has yet to score a TD.
