[2018-19 NFL Position Power Rankings] The Running Backs

We continue our power rankings of the 2018-19 NFL Starters with a look at the position that gives every fantasy nerd out there a huge sports boner. Yes, I’m talking about the ol’ running backs.

As always, starting position is determined by depth charts courtesy of our friends over at Rotoworld.com.

And a reminder, rookies and guys who were injured last year are always ranked low. This is a list that goes off what you did last season. These guys didn’t play last year, so why would they be ranked high you idiots?
