Week 2 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Should-starts, sleepers, potential busts

Week 1 was a bit bizarre for a number of the NFL’s greatest pass-catching backs. Austin Ekeler solely had one goal; Tarik Cohen noticed simply two targets all recreation; even Chris Thompson did not see many targets regardless of a depleted Jaguars backfield. Heading into the second recreation of the season, it will likely be attention-grabbing to see if these targets stabilize or if backfields proceed to be unsettled. No matter what we discover out sooner or later, our Week 2 fantasy RB PPR rankings are robust to place collectively within the current.

Clearly, accidents are having an influence right here. Marlon Mack’s Achilles’ damage will transfer Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines up on this week’s rankings. Each proved to be glorious pass-catchers in Week 1, creating the uncommon committee with two good receivers.

WEEK 2 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Operating again | Broad receiver | Tight finish | D/ST | Kicker

Different risers are the standard “receiving backs.” After out-rushing Nick Chubb and logging six targets, Kareem Hunt is an RB2 this week. In the meantime, Ekeler stays within the high tier in a positive matchup in opposition to Kansas Metropolis, whereas Cohen, James White, and Jerick McKinnon all will probably be flex concerns.

As for backs that transfer down, Derrick Henry is our No. 1 again for traditional, however he drops a number of spots as a result of he would not do a lot within the receiving recreation. Nick Chubb falls into RB2 territory due to Hunt’s presence within the passing recreation. And additional down, Sony Michel and Adrian Peterson transfer down a bit since each White and D’Andre Swift are there to take touches away from them within the passing recreation.
