Fantasy PPR, Standard RB Rankings Week 18: Who To Start With, Sit To Run Back In Fantasy Football

If you’re still playing fantasy football in the last week of the NFL season, you’re braver than us. Between injuries, COVID and the teams potentially sitting down as key players, you never know who is going to adjust until just before kickoff. Nonetheless, we’re doing our best to help you understand your starting, decision-making decisions with our Fantasy RB Week 18 rankings for the Standard and PPR leagues.

The big injury worries at the start of the week are Ronald Jones (ankle), Michael Carter (concussion), Damien Harris (hamstrings), Miles Sanders (hand), James Conner (heel) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) , but there’s a good chance others will show up closer to the weekend. Aaron Jones and possibly AJ Dillon (@ Lions) are also thinking of playing sparingly, if at all, in setting up Patrick Taylor for a big week 18 – as we all predicted in Week 1.

FANTASY WEEK 18 RANKING (PPR & STANDARD):
quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Now the best matches are well established. Injuries to offensive linemen or key defensive players can make situations better or worse, but we know the Jets (@ Bills), Chargers (@ Raiders), Seahawks (@ Cardinals), Texans (vs. Titans) ), Steelers (@ Ravens), Lions (vs. Packers), Giants (vs. Washington), Raiders (vs. Chargers), Bills (vs. Jets) and Vikings (vs. Bears) were the top 10 teams in fantastic point terms allowed to enter the week. 17. The Falcons (vs. Saints) and Jaguars (vs. Colts) weren’t far behind, and both were burned to the ground last week.

SATURDAY SINGLE-GAME DFS:
KC-DEN FD | KC-DEN DK | DAL-PHI FD | DAL-PHI DK

This creates great opportunities for newbies like Taylor (@ Lions), Devin Singletary and maybe even Zack Moss (against Jets), both Cardinals back if Conner plays (against Seahawks), D’Onta Foreman (@ Texans), Devonta Freeman and maybe even Latavius ​​Murray (vs. Steelers), and whoever starts for the Jets if Carter is out, likely Austin Walter or Tevin Coleman (@ Bills). All of them have varying degrees of rise, but they should all have decent grounds, with Edmonds and Freeman more valuable in the PPR leagues.

On the other hand, the Saints (@ Falcons), Buccaneers (vs. Panthers), Titans (@ Texans), Cardinals (vs. Seahawks), 49ers (@ Rams) and Colts (@Jaguars) have been particularly tough on the fantasy. RB. You’re not going to sit with the slightly slumped Cordarrelle Patterson (against the Saints), the soaring Rashaad Penny (@ Cardinals), or the safe Sony Michel (against the 49ers), but you’ll have to think twice about Dare Ogunbowale ( vs. Colts), Rex Burkhead (vs. Titans) and Chuba Hubbard (@ Buccaneers). Ogunbowale and Burkhead have higher floors in the PPR leagues – and both could well produce in waste time, as Ogunbowale did last week – but there are obvious risks with both.

Speaking of PPR soils, the Seahawks (@ Cardinals), Eagles (vs Cowboys), Buccaneers (vs Panthers), Bengals (@ Browns), Chiefs (@ Broncos), Jets (@ Bills) and Raiders (vs. Chargers)) all entered Week 17, allowing for at least six RB receptions per game. We’ve already mentioned how in a good position Edmonds is this week, but he’s obviously even better now. The same goes for Kareem Hunt (against the Bengals) if he plays. The Broncos’ two backs also have slightly raised PPR floors.

Much will change throughout the week, as some starters will be excluded as a precaution (Saquon Barkley? Antonio Gibson?) And others will be claimed by the reserve / COVID list. We always see unlikely heroes at the end of the season, so grab your handcuffs and be ready to pounce.

To note: We’ll be updating these RB leaderboards throughout the week, so check back for the latest player moves.
