How many receptions will my RB have at the end of the season?
Of course rushing yards have to be considered – but which one will give me the 102 receptions that Matt Forte had last year?
So without further adieu, here are the Top 10 PPR (1 FF Point Per Reception Leagues) Running Backs heading into the 2015 season.
1. Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers
Not much of a question here. Despite a two game suspension no RB is poised for more total yardage than Bell. He is a true three-down back who had 1,361 yards on the ground last year to go along with an impressive 83 catches for 854 yards.
No reason to think he isn’t heavily utilized in every aspect of the game again and that he doesn’t lead the NFL in total yardage once again.
2. Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs
Was almost criminally under-utilized last season with 246 touches – let’s hope that doesn’t happen again!
He scored 14 times last year, had 1,033 yards on the ground to go along with 40 catches and 291 yards. Jeremy Maclin takes some pressure off the running game and opens a few holes for the backs – that’s the theory.
Charles will be a huge part of KC’s offense this year – he has to be if Andy Reid hopes to erase what was a fairly disappointing 2014.
3. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Started slowly last year but was one of the best dual-threat guys in the NFL toward the end of the season. He averaged 19 touches per game last year and rumbled for 4.63 yards per catch. In one of the elite offenses in the NFL Lacy has a chance to become Fantasy’s #1 guy. Lacy never leaves the field and has the trust of his coaches and QB in absolutely every aspect of the game.
4. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
AP is back and ready to terrorize the league again! He has a new offensive coordinator in town – Norv Turner is famous for using his running backs in the passing game. He would be a top 5 RB without the receptions but expecting 50+ catches isn’t out of the realm!
More touches for arguably the most explosive guy in the NFL only increases his value!
5. Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
– had an astounding 102 catches last year (fourth best among all players in the NFL) – I don’t expect that to happen again! He has gone over 1400 combined yards in seven straight seasons and rushed for 1000 yards for the third straight year last year.
All told Forte is as reliable as they come – with an added focus on the run, Forte’s numbers could eclipse those of last year. He’s still a bell cow and worthy of a top 5 PPR Ranking.
6. Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
Beast Mode! Beast Mode! His production hasn’t slowed at all the last few seasons – 1200 yards and double digit TDs is almost a certainty. But the recent inclusion into the passing game makes Lynch even more valuable.
He could hit 1500 combined yards this year as Jimmy Graham could open up a few holes in the short passing game.
7. C.J. Anderson, Denver Broncos
The Denver management and coaches have vowed to take a more run-oriented approach this upcoming season – Anderson is the beneficiary.
He is the unquestioned #1 in Denver and could be on track for 1400 yards and 12-14 combined TDs. When you have a three down back in an elite offense it is reasonable to expect a monster year..
8. LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills
His receptions may not be where they have been in the past but his touches will certainly be north of 300! For sure.
He finished third in the NFL in rushing (1,319) but didn’t get a whole lot of receptions. I envision a similar year for McCoy – healthy rushing numbers because of the volume of work and a few receptions along the way. The Bills ain’t no Eagles – McCoy will find that out soon.
9. DeMarco Murray, Philadelphia Eagles
Ya, ya – his offensive line was incredible last year but we can’t deny the fact that Murray has talent. Durability could be a factor, so could the presence of Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles but we can still expect 20+ touches per game for Murray – enough to allow him to finish top 10 in PPR leagues.
10. Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens
Finished as the eighth best Fantasy RB last year – he won’t sneak up on anyone this year! He rushed for 1,266 yards and caught 44 balls for 263 yards. Mark Trestman, the Ravens new O-coordinator will ensure that those numbers, particularly receptions spike.
Look what Trestman did with Matt Forte last year! Forsett is on a collision course with a career year- he could easily finish top 5 among RBs this season.
