Fantasy Football: Week Four Running Back Rankings & Daily League Plays (Standard and PPR)

by Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad)

Many tough matchups, across the board, for running backs this week. May be a good week to save some money on some lesser priced backs who have better matchups and spend on wide receivers in your Daily League Contests. As always, I'll provide with a few value plays, along with my rankings below. And remember, If you want a look at who is starting for each team, along with player projections, and DFS pricing visit our NFL Lineup Grid. Also, if you have any Start/Sit questions click on the twitter link in blue above and I'll answer them.

Daily League RB Value Plays:


  • Colts RB Trent Richardson ($6,700, 19.1% of your cap at  Fan Duel- Play Now)- No Ahmad Bradshaw so it's the TRich show today versus the pitiful Jaguars.
  • Jets RB Bilial Powell ($4,750, 4.8% of your cap at Draft Day - Play Now)- Expect the Jets to feed Powell the ball today
  • Ravens RB Bernard Pierce ($4,750, 4.8% of your cap at Draft Day - Play Now)- Ray Rice is going to play, but it sounds like he will be limited and the Bills are top five worst rushing defense. I can see the Ravens passing their way into the Red Zone and Pierce getting multiple opportunties to cash in from there.
