Between injuries, goodbye, and “awkward” matchups, our Week 14 RB PPR fantasy rankings weren’t easy to put together, and you can bet they’ll see a lot of updates during the week before your last start, take a seat. in decisions.

First, let’s start with the byes. They’re not really that bad, as the Eagles, Patriots and Dolphins RB situations can often be frustrating, but Jonathan Taylor’s absence during the final week of the fantasy regular season is a real killer. The biggest advantage of those byes is that two of the best running defenders are out (Colts, Patriots).

Field marshal | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

Obviously we will deal with injuries as they arise, but in the meantime, we will have to figure out how to navigate the matchups. Several uninspiring committee backfields have RB-friendly opponents. The Texans (vs. Seahawks), Seahawks (@ Texans) and Titans (vs. Jaguars) have at least two backs, and at least for the Texans (David Johnson and Rex Burkhead) and Titans (Dontrell Hilliard and D’Onta Foreman), you can play on both backs. Usage trends aren’t that obvious to the Seahawks, and after a Week 13 in which Alex Collins (midsection) was out and Adrian Peterson handled most of the goal line duties … we have no idea what to think. We can’t even point to a guy who has a slump in the PRPD leagues, so for now, that looks like a stay.

Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

The Broncos (vs. Lions) and Saints (@ Jets) are much better committee situations if they play Melvin Gordon (hip) and Alvin Kamara (knee). You can start Gordon, Javonte Williams, Kamara, and Mark Ingram given the matchups. If Gordon and Kamara are out again, Williams and Ingram will be on the edge of RB1.

On the other hand, Tevin Coleman (vs. Saints) and Matt Breida and Devin Singletary (@ Buccaneers) are in the worst places among the border runners, and it will be difficult to know what to do with Darrell Henderson (@ Cardinals) and James. Conner and Chase Edmonds (against Rams). You will likely start all three in the PPR leagues as Edmonds should immediately return to being Arizona’s main target, while Conner always has high TD potential, but after Henderson (quad) burned the owners of Fantasy last week, it could be on some hit lists.

One situation that is impossible to assess at this time is Carolina’s. Chuba Hubbard (vs. Falcons) was solid, if unspectacular, during Christian McCaffrey’s absence earlier this year, averaging 84.4 total yards and 2.6 receptions per game. Ameer Abdullah’s playing time has been trending upward, and given his superior receiving skills, he may be the most valuable PPR in this favorable matchup. For now, we stick with Hubbard higher in the standings as he looks more likely to score and get touches, but we’ll have to see how Carolina spreads playing time.

There aren’t many notable “pass-catching” running backs who are stealthily climbing the PPR rankings, JD McKissic (vs. Cowboys) is always in play as a flex when he’s active, and Kareem Hunt (vs. Ravens) remains a solid starter. But unless you’re talking about the Houston or Tennessee backs we mentioned earlier, this is not the week to bet on a running back to go purely on catches.

Note: We will update these RB PPR rankings throughout the week, so check back for the analysis and the latest player movement.
