Running Back Rankings for Fantasy Football week 4-Who to Start

There’s a number of top running backs dealing with injury, but this is how to set your lineup heading into this weekend.

Here’s our rankings for this week of the top 30 running backs for the week. A special thanks to Steve Copps (SC), Jeffrey Littrell (JL), and Matthew Tuckness (MT) for joining me (ZT) in these rankings. The higher the rank the better the start, so we think you should start Adrian Peterson of the Vikings over DeMarco Murray as the Cowboys host the Bears on Monday Night Football. NR stands for not ranked which counts as a 35 for averaging purposes.
