The Week 11 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.

Josh Adams, PHI at NO
The Eagles season is on the brink entering Week 11, as they head to New Orleans to face the hottest team in the NFL. Since losing starter Jay Ajayi for the year, Corey Clement and Wendell Smallwood have not been able to prove either is capable of consistent production week to week in a larger role, which has created an opportunity for Adams.

The undrafted rookie free agent out of Notre Dame has responded well, averaging almost seven yards per tote on 16 carries over the last two games. He also has shown some pop with runs of 21, and 29 yards in those contests, the longest of any Eagle running back this season. With their backs against the wall, and inconsistencies from the position, it is not unreasonable to speculate that Adams could get his turn for an increased workload in the Philadelphia backfield.
In a week with six byes, he would be my target to start in deeper leagues. I think he is safe for a 10-15 touch floor, with some “hot hand” potential if he makes the most of them early on.
Jacquizz Rodgers, TB at NYG
Tampa Bay has struggled to get production from running backs all season. Last week, when the Redskins constantly double teamed O.J. Howard, and Mike Evans, receiving opportunities opened up out of the Bucs backfield. Rodgers was the tailback that took advantage, racking up 102 yards through the air, catching all of his team high eight targets.
Howard has broken out this season as a premier receiver at his position. It is likely opposing defenses will continue to try taking away him, and stud wideout Mike Evans. Moving forward, that could increase Rodgers weekly production, as the best receiving threat out of the backfield, in a pass first offense.
If you’re looking in that range, I like Rodgers to continue being more involved in the passing game from here on, this season.
Good luck for Week 11! Follow me on twitter @realBobbyAdcock compliments and insults are greatly appreciated.
