Week 10 Running Back Rankings

The Week 10 Running Back Rankings are here to help you make tough decisions this week. Whether it is deciding which of your options to start, or who you should be looking to pick up this week to cover your byes and injuries. Our team will be here the rest of the year ranking the offensive positions, defensive positions, and team defenses to try and help you win your fantasy football leagues.

Below the table, I’ll be highlighting some pick ups for this week (if they are still available) and sneaky-starts for your bye-week needs.

Theo Riddick, DET at CHI

The trade of Golden Tate is sure to shake up the Lions offense moving forward. With such an ugly performance from the offense last week, allowing a whopping 10 sacks, it was difficult to draw any definitive conclusions about the impact of Tate’s absence. One thing was clear though.

Theo is back! And, he was one of Matthew Stafford’s most dependable targets on passing downs when he caught seven passes for 36 yards. I watch all Lions games (unfortunately), so I can tell you that he lines up all over the place in the red zone as well. As a deep bye week fill in, Riddick is a solid option if you’re in a desperate spot this week.

Rashaad Penny, SEA at LA

Seattle Seahawk’s starting running back, Chris Carson, is expected to be a game time decision. Most assume that means Mike Davis will see a majority of the work if Carson were to sit. I would agree, he is the safer choice of the two, but I would also caution that no running back is safe with Petey Carroll at the helm.

This article details quotes from Carroll that address how they would like to continue getting their explosive first round pick more involved. If Carson is in fact out for Sunday, I think this could be more of an even split, with Penny receiving 10-15 touches in what should be a high scoring matchup. If you are looking for a speculative pickup before Sunday, he would be my choice.

Good luck for Week 10!
