Week 8 PPR – RB Rankings

Photo By: Rick Osentoski / US PRESSWIRE

It’s hard to know what to make of recent talk about Trent Richardson possibly being shut down through the Browns week ten bye week, when today, we see Richardson participating in the teams walk through. Perhaps the Browns coaching staff is waiting to see how Richardson looks at the end of the week to determine his status going forward, I have to believe we will see him on the field this week.

While Coach Pat Shurmur pulled Richardson last week because he looked tentative on the field, he did admit his rookie running back didn’t suffer a setback to his rib injury, sustained the week prior.

If Richardson should play, let’s look to him as a low-end RB2 option or at worst a flex play, assuming he starts. In the rankings below I’ve left him out, more to properly rank Montario Hardesty if Richardson should miss this game.

Look to Hardesty as a flex play if Richardson is out, and a bench option if Richardson should play.

Felix Jones Continued Health Problems

Yes, Felix Jones got the start with DeMarco Murray out and no he couldn’t make it through one game without a couple (neck and knee) of injuries. Despite missing practice on Wednesday Jones is expected to play against the Giants but we should see a decent amount of Phillip Tanner as well.

What is working in PPR fantasy owners favor is that Jones will continue to see the majority of work in passing situations. Jones was targeted six times last week and picked up five receptions on the day. His work in the passing game makes him a worthy start in a very important home game.

At the same time, Tanner is a sneaky play if you are desperate for help at the flex position. Would could see Tanner take over the early down work, if Jones should struggle early on and he would be inline for goal-line work if that happens. Just expect Jones to keep a third-down role.
