Fantasy Football Week 16 Running Back Projections: LeSean McCoy's Big Year

The final position projections for the 2011 fantasy season are in, see who you should be putting into your starting lineup.

Thursday Game: Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts

Depending on how you league scores, it's likely either LeSean McCoy or Ray Rice were the most productive backs in 2011 for fantasy. And anybody who held on to Marshawn Lynch was amply rewarded down the stretch of the season. But what about the other backs in Week 16?

Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 30 top-rated running backs in Week 16. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.

These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.

Guys like Felix Jones, Roy Helu and Reggie Bush are hot going into the final weekend and could help your lineup. Further down the list of flex or injury plays are guys like C.J. Spiller or Ryan Grant.

* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings. Quarterbacks are scored with 1 point for every 25 passing yards, and 4 points for every touchdown. For running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, they are scored with 1 point for every 10 total yards, and 6 points for every touchdown. This is a non-PPR projection.
