Week 18 Fantasy Football Rankings: Running Backs

Welcome to Week 18 of the fantasy football season!

While most fantasy championships have been decided, there are still plenty of folks who roll right through the end of the regular season. For those folks, here are my final player rankings for the 2023 season. As always. I’ve used a full-point PPR scoring system.

At Sports Illustrated, we always have you covered!

Among the running backs, Jonathan Taylor is at the top with Christian McCaffrey out of action. Devin Singletary is ranked highly due to a plus matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, and I like Elijah Mitchell to be a fantasy contributor against the Los Angeles Rams with CMC on the sidelines. I also like Tony Pollard this week, despite his recent statistical struggles, against the Washington Commanders.

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