Fantasy football running back rankings 2021 (top 60, PPR)

Fantasy football NFL

Last year, Derrick Henry led the NFL in rushing yards.

It would be hard to argue that running backs are not the most important and most volatile position in fantasy football.

Drafting the right one can prevent you from getting headaches and perusing the waiver wire week after week looking for a solution. 

There are a handful of no brainer choices on our top 60 list of running backs, with a trio of running backs predicted to be among the front-runners for offensive player of the year. According to Pickswise and their futures bet compilations, Derrick Henry is the favorite, with +700 odds. Christian McCaffery (+1000) and Dalvin Cook (+1400) join him in the top five.

Not surprisingly, those three are who we expect to be the top three picks in fantasy drafts this season. Who follows them?
