Updated Dynasty Running Back Rankings – April 2014

Click here for the complete updated dynasty running back rankings.

  • Denver Broncos vs Baltimore RavensNo changes in the top five: LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Eddie Lacy, Adrian Peterson, and Doug Martin. 
  • Biggest riser this month is Montee Ball of Denver, going from 21st to 16th. With the signing of Knowshon Moreno off to Miami, Ball is, without a doubt, the starter in the high-powered Denver offense.
  • Other risers include new Giants starting running back Rashad Jennings going from 49th to 43rd. After finishing strong in Oakland, Jennings will be asked to take over the starting job in New York after the departure of Andre Brown and David Wilson‘s health still up in the air.
  • Another riser is new starter Toby Gerhart in Jacksonville. Gerhart wasn’t even ranked in dynasty circles until he signed with the Jaguars and is now 46th. Still just 27 without a lot of wear on those tires, Gerhart could be a decent running back option on a young, improving team.
  • The other significant riser is the Saints Khiry Robinson. With the Saints looking to run the ball more, Robinson is the youngest in the new New Orleans running attack.
  • Drops include the previously mentioned Andre Brown from 43rd to 48th. Brown’s ranking was contingent on his status as a starter. He ended up in Houston where he’ll back up perpetually injured Arian Foster so he’ll be an interesting handcuff in 2014 but shouldn’t be relied on.
  • Jets running back Bilal Powell also drops, this time from 54th to 59th. Powell drops to 3rd on the Jets depth chart after the signing of Chris Johnson.

  • Houston Texans vs. Tennessee TitansTexans running back Arian Foster is good to go for 2014 after back surgery. With Ben Tate gone to Cleveland, and Foster sitting out a month, Foster should rebound to be a low-end RB1. Now, how long he remains there is to be determined.
  • Speaking of Texans running backs, Houston signed former Giants running back Andre Brown to back up Arian Foster. Brown is a decent backup option and should be one of the more valuable number two’s in the league.
  • In other injury news, Colts receiver Reggie Wayne should be good for 2014, too, after tearing his ACL. However, Wayne is 35 and is not as valuable in dynasty leagues unless you’re in win-now mode.
  • The Panthers signed receiver Jason Avant who, currently, is the number two receiver in Carolina. The Panthers will certainly draft one receiver and, possibly, more. Avant’s dynasty stock is only as good as position on the Panthers depth chart.

Daily Dynasty Update – January 10th

  • Broncos linebacker Von Miller had ACL surgery today and will be recovering for a while. It’s unknown whether he’ll be ready for the start of next season and is another disappointing development for the LB1. He could be a decent buy-low candidate.
  • With James Jones future in Green Bay in doubt, receiver Randall Cobb could move out of the slot to the outside. You have to assume that would sap some of his opportunities to make plays but it depends on the other personnel. Cobb is a WR2 only because of the crowded receiving corps in Green Bay.
  • Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III got a vote of confidence from new coach Jay Gruden. There goes the Cousins in DC theory.
  • Giants running back David Wilson will undergo neck surgery. Hopefully, Wilson can get healthy and back to being a productive running back. Meanwhile, it leaves Andre Brown as the front-runner for the Giants running back job in 2014.

Dynasty Recap – Week 15 – Seahawks blank Giants, 23-0

  • Giants quarterback Eli Manning was just bad. Going 18 of 31 for 156 yards, a third of his incompletions were interceptions (five). If your dynasty league success is contingent on Eli, you need to upgrade. Now.
  • Giants running back Andre Brown was equally as bad, going 17 yards on 11 carries. This will do nothing to dispel the notion that Brown can’t carry the load.
  • Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch struggled in the running game, only getting 47 yards on 16 carries but made up for it in the passing game with 73 yards on six catches. Lynch should still be a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 heading in to next year.
  • Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner had another outstanding day with 10 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a tackle for a loss. He’s a LB1 in all dynasty formats.
