Win Big with these Week 7 Fantasy Football Running Backs
Even with a few of the highest scoring fantasy running backs taking a much-needed week off, there is still plenty of talent to go around.
You may not be able to rely on the services of Matt Forte and Giovani Bernard, for example, but they will return from the bye week stronger than ever.
For the time being, you need to consider the best available options at running back for week 7.
Here are some of the names that stand out in the crowd:
- Devonta Freeman
- Le'Veon Bell
- Todd Gurley
- Adrian Peterson
- Arian Foster
- Chris Ivory
- Marshawn Lynch
Who’s Worth the Money?
Your running back selection can be the difference between winning big and coming up short.
As you examine the names above, consider the following:
- Todd Gurley is well on his way to a breakout first season, despite missing the first few games recovering from injury. This week, the Rams take on the Browns. Expect Gurley to have a monster game.
- Adrian Peterson struggled to get things going last week, but his fortunes are likely to change when the Vikings take on the lowly Lions.
- Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks take on the 49ers on Thursday night. The Seahawks are desperate for a win, just as you are desperate to start your contest on the right foot. It is the perfect storm.
It doesn’t matter what type of strategy you have employed in the past, you know that a big running back performance can go a long way in pushing you to the top of the leaderboard.
