2010 Fantasy Football Rankings: Running Backs


We know it's a busy fantasy football draft weekend, so we're going to go right ahead and hammer out our running back rankings. Much like the Quarterbacks, we've listed tiers after each player's team so as to help divide them into groups when picking between positions. Say a tier 2 RB is available and there are still 4 tier 2 WR's. Simply follow the tier and you'll have a good year.
