Week 15 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts



As the fantasy football playoffs go on, the start ’em, sit ’em decisions at running back are getting tougher. There are more lead backs emerging from situations that had previously been committee approaches, and the position as a whole is getting healthier. There are still a few injuries to monitor, but in general, our Week 15 fantasy RB PPR rankings are looking pretty deep.

The top injuries to watch involve Christian McCaffrey (shoulder/quad) and Antonio Gibson (toe). McCaffrey seems to have a new injury every week, but he did log some practice time in Week 14, so he may have a chance to return. (UPDATE: So much for that. McCaffrey isn’t expected to play on Saturday against the Packers, so he won’t be included in these rankings.) Meanwhile, Gibson is dealing with a painful turf toe issue and will probably be “questionable.” If he can’t play, J.D. McKissic will be a true RB2 in PPR formats and could have a high ceiling thanks to the sheer amount of targets he gets on a weekly basis.

WEEK 15 STANDARD RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

There are also a couple of players on the COVID list that will need to be monitored. David Johnson and Myles Gaskin both missed Week 14 after landing on the list late in the week, and it’s unclear if they will be able to return in Week 15. It sounds like Gaskin will be out, as he has tested positive, but Johnson’s status is unknown. If he can’t play, Duke Johnson, a top pass-catcher, should be a solid RB2 even against a tough Colts defense. DeAndre Washington will likely fill in for Gaskin again, depending on the health of some of Miami’s other backs.

WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Per usual, a handful of players will move up in PPR formats thanks to their pass-catching ability. Notably, Nyheim Hines (vs. Texans), Jamaal Williams (vs. Panthers), Lynn Bowden (vs. Patriots), and James White (@ Dolphins) will be potential flexes in PPR while more TD-dependent options like Peyton Barber (vs. Seahawks), Gus Edwards (vs. Jaguars), and Zack Moss (@ Broncos) will move down a bit.

Bowden, who’s also eligible at WR in most fantasy leagues, is one of the more interesting options should Miami’s backfield remain depleted. He’s caught 11-of-13 targets for 123 yards the past two weeks, and while he’s unlikely to do much running the ball, he’s always a candidate to throw a surprise pass and he should continue to be targeted often.
