For my running back rankings, I adjusted some players based upon expectations. For example, I kept Ezekiel Elliott in the top spot because I expect him to be suited up by Week 1 or 2. If you want to select the other three RBs in tier 1, I don’t blame you one bit.
For Melvin Gordon, I have a little more pessimism. The Chargers are in a better spot to be patient with Justin Jackson and Austin Ekeler in the fold. They also have an ownership group that has shown the willingness to be more stubborn.
For these rankings I used 1/2 point PPR scoring. Disagree with my rankings? Fantastic, hit me on Twitter and I’d be happy to debate some names.
