Week 16 Fantasy Football Rankings: Running Backs

Welcome to Week 16 of the fantasy football season!

This is also the semifinals of the fantasy postseason, so we’re on our way to the ultimate goal … winning a title! As always. I’ve used a full-point PPR scoring system, which you can use in addition to the Week 16 edition of Start Em, Sit Em.

At Sports Illustrated, we always have you covered!

Among the running backs, Kyren Williams makes a big move up based on his recent success. Rachaad White has also moved up at the position, and Isiah Pacheco is back for the Chiefs and gets into the top 10 based on a matchup against Las Vegas. Saquon Barkley has a tough matchup in Philadelphia, pushing him out of the top 15. He’ll be a risk-reward No. 2 fantasy running back or flex starter in the NFC East tilt.

Be sure to check back for updates … and good luck this week!
