Fantasy football rankings, Week 11: Running backs for PPR, standard leagues

As if you aren't used to this ever-changing scene by now, a few more running backs have decided to join in on the fun.

With only six total bye weeks remaining, it's about time to start adjusting your roster to fit both your end-of-season run and playoff push. Everything would be much easier if there were more than five or six unquestionable every-week starters, but the rankings, and most likely your bench, continue to update and change for that exact reason. Having said that, it shouldn't be shocking to know that an entirely new slate of names have arrived to help you win in Week 11. And at this rate, it might be time to start catering your playoff roster towards them, as well.

C.J. Anderson - Easily the most discussed running back ranked outside of the top 5. And for Anderson, it's simple: get 20 touches and we'll all be in your debt. Split with Montee Ball, however, and I'm sure we're all doomed. But with Ronnie Hillman seemingly out of the rotation for the next few weeks, it's now or never for Anderson. Some continue to worry about the return of Ball, but remember, his 3.1 yards per carry weren't exactly giving the Denver Broncos a nod of confidence. If Anderson pans out, he'll be the reason you win your league, and that in itself is worth fighting for.

Rashad Jennings - Whether it's due to his return or the fact that you don't have to start Andre Williams anymore doesn't matter. Just know Jennings will reportedly suit back up this Sunday and that should be enough to give your team hope. Prior to his injury, Jennings was a top 10 back in both PPR and standard scoring formats. I realize that seems like it was lightyears ago, but as the lead back for a team searching for an answer in the running game, Jennings could be the RB2 you've been waiting for.

With Justin Forsett, Chris Ivory, DeMarco Murray and Denard Robinson all on bye this week, our experts bumped up Le'Veon Bell, Marshawn Lynch, and Jamaal Charles from their usual second-tier. It gets a bit iffy after the top 10, but quite honestly, you should be used to that by now. The playoffs wait for no one.
