Updated Fantasy Football RB Rankings

Had it not been for 5 lost fumbles, DeMarco Murray would be the best fantasy football RB this season. His 1427 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns would have been enough to surpass Matt Forte's 78 receptions and 8 TDs.  

So far this season, just 7 backs have seen 200 carries and one of them is Andre Ellington who has done very little with all of those touches.  He has even added 46 receptions (64 targets) but still has gained just 1055 yards from the line of scrimmage and scored 5 TDs.  There are plenty of fantasy owners who are counting on him in the playoffs, and they better hope that his recent injury (hip pointer) doesn't hold him back, or worse OUT!
