Fantasy Football RB Rankings Week 6

With Derrick Henry, D’Andre Swift, and Josh Jacobs on a bye, who are the top 20 running backs for this weekend?

1. Austin Ekeler, Chargers vs. Broncos

Austin Ekeler is coming off of back-to-back 35 fantasy point weeks and is showing no signs of slowing down. Ekeler is finally living up to his 3rd overall pick billing.

2. Christian McCaffrey, Panthers vs. Rams

Even against a stout 49ers defense, Christian McCaffrey still had 23.4 fantasy points and should still have a productive day against the Rams without Baker Mayfield.

3. Saquon Barkley, Giants vs. Ravens

Saquon Barkley continued his case for the RB1 this year with another game with over 70 rush yards and a touchdown. He is the Giants’ offense with over 100 all-purpose yards against a good Green Bay defense and should have another good game.

4. Nick Chubb, Browns vs. Patriots

5. Breece Hall, Jets vs. Packers

Breece Hall has entered the elite backs conversation after almost a 200 all-purpose yards performance. He is a great pass-catching back, a dominant runner in an offense that will continue to rely on the run. He had 27.7 fantasy points last week and should continue to go off even against a good defense in the Packers.

6. Alvin Kamara, Saints vs. Bengals

7. Dalvin Cook, Vikings vs. Dolphins

8. Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers vs. Steelers

9. Jonathan Taylor, Colts vs. Jaguars

10. David Montgomery, Bears vs. Commanders

11. Jeff Wilson Jr., 49ers vs. Falcons

Jeff Wilson Jr. had 120 yards rushing on 17 attempts with a touchdown against the Falcons. He had 20 fantasy points but could have had 30+ if Tevin Coleman hadn’t taken away 2 touchdowns from him. He has another good matchup against a Falcons defense that really hasn’t looked good against the run.

12. Kenneth Walker III, Seahawks vs. Cardinals

Kenneth Walker III came in for the injured Rashaad Penny and ran for a 60+ yard touchdown run. With Penny out for the season, Walker III becomes an elite RB option for the rest of the season in a high-powered offense.

13. Rhamondre Stevenson, Patriots vs. Browns

14. Aaron Jones, Packers vs. Jets

15. Joe Mixon, Bengals vs. Saints

17. JK Dobbins, Ravens vs. Giants

18. Melvin Gordon III, Broncos vs. Chargers

19. Devin Singletary, Bills vs. Chiefs

20. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Chiefs vs. Bills
