Fantasy Football PPR Running Back Rankings Week 8

Travis Etienne Jr. and James Robinson are both RB1s now after the Jets trade, while Christian McCaffrey is poised for a huge day against the Rams

1. Josh Jacobs, Raiders vs. Saints

Josh Jacobs is the RB1 in all of Fantasy Football over the past 3 weeks with 34.5, 30.3, and 36.5 fantasy points respectively. Even against the 11th-ranked run defense, Josh Jacobs cannot be stopped right now and will continue to produce as an RB1.

2. Derrick Henry, Titans vs. Texans

3. Christian McCaffrey, 49ers vs. Rams

4. Saquon Barkley, Giants vs. Seahawks

5. Kenneth Walker III, Seahawks vs. Giants

Kenneth Walker III reached over 22 MPH on one of his runs last weekend against the Chargers, the fastest speed in the NFL by a player this season. Walker III rushed 23 times for 168 yards and 2 touchdowns amounting to 28.8 fantasy points. Even against a good Giants defense Walker III is going to produce at an elite level.

6. Nick Chubb, Browns vs. Bengals

7. Jonathan Taylor, Colts vs. Commanders

8. Travis Etienne Jr., Jaguars vs. Broncos

Travis Etienne Jr. is now the undisputed RB1 in Jacksonville after the Jaguars shipped James Robinson to the Jets. Etienne Jr. ran 14 times for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars’ loss to the Giants last weekend, and even up against a solid run defense (15th in NFL) in the Broncos, Etienne is poised for a big day.

9. Dameon Pierce, Texans vs. Titans

10. D’Andre Swift, Lions vs. Dolphins

11. James Robinson, Jets vs. Patriots

12. Dalvin Cook, Vikings vs. Cardinals

13. Rhamondre Stevenson, Patriots vs. Jets

14. Alvin Kamara, Saints vs. Raiders

15. Raheem Mostert, Dolphins vs. Lions

Raheem Mostert is now the lead back in Miami (with over 14 carries in the past 4 weeks) and found the end zone for the first time all season last weekend. The Dolphins are relying more and more on Mostert to produce which makes him a very good RB2 play this weekend against one of the worst defenses in the league.

16. Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers vs. Ravens

17. Eno Benjamin, Cardinals vs. Vikings

18. Aaron Jones, Packers vs. Bills

19. Tyler Allgeier, Falcons vs. Panthers

Tyler Allgeier continues to get the carries (averaging 16 over the past two weeks) to garner fantasy success and he finally scored a touchdown last weekend. He faces a 25th-ranked Carolina Panthers run defense and is poised for a good performance.

20. David Montgomery, Bears vs. Cowboys
