Fantasy Football 2012, Week 14: Running back rankings for PPR and standard leagues


Check out how we rank the injured landscape of running backs for Week 14.

One of the neatest things about fantasy football is that if you kill it on the waiver wire, you can turn a crappy draft into a title-contending team. Bryce Brown has been arguably fantasy football's most valuable asset and he's in line for another big game this week. An owner can basically start three running backs that were grabbed off the wire and probably have the best group in their league with Brown, Alfred Morris and Knowshon Moreno. By the same token, Josh Freeman at quarter back with Danario Alexander, Chris Givens and Josh Gordon would makes for an interesting trio. Brandon Myers? What?

Of course, gathering all of these players shouldn't mean you should be patting yourself on the back. You should be looking for better competition in your league.

One last thing, now that we're basically in playoff mode, I'd usually suggest sticking with your studs and not getting cute. Although, playing Bryce Brown would not be cute at all (assuming LeSean McCoy is out). If you feel like you're up against a beast of of a team that's like 12-1 or something, then you might have to get cute and play your higher upside guys.
