Fantasy football: Every NFL team's starting (and backup) running back for 2021

Sometimes the easiest way to decide who to draft, when you are deep into your fantasy football draft, is to simply look at depth charts to pick running backs who are slated to start.

To make this easier for you, we've assembled the below table — which lists the RB1 and likely back up for each of the NFL's 32 teams.

The information below is based on the best available information and insight as of August 31. We've thrown an asterisk next to back ups we believe could become starters at some point during the season:
