Fantasy Football Census RB Rankings: Top 50 RB PPR (Updated 8/12)

Census RB Rankings (PPR) and for the first time I’ve added my personal PPR running back ranks as well. I hope you enjoy both sides of the rankings.  

The 35th RB was the best I could do at making the 31 year old Danny Woodhead a man so I changed his name to Daniel to compensate.

If you’re new to my Census rankings I’ll attempt to explain. The Census rankings aren’t your typical Fantasy Football rankings. They’re actually made up of data compiled from all over the nation, globe and industry. Not any given area or “skill set” they’re the opinion of the masses. As I’ve tried to convey in the past they should be used as a tool or guide. They’re not the opinion of one said analyst. As soon as you vote on one poll you’re a part of the Census rankings. Yes you’re an opinion too, because let’s face it that’s really all any one analyst is.  

The Census rankings should be used as a gauge to where a certain player could be drafted. They’re not the lone opinion of myself or anyone person. I personally believe some of these players are too low or too high.

I truly believe that after one soft year we’re too low on Gurley, to be behind Jordan Howard seems offensive. Anyone who knows me could probably assume I don’t agree with the Gurley ranking here. It’s not so much him being the 8th ranked RB that catches my eyes but Howard higher than Gurley feels disrespectful. Short and sweet Todd Gurley is the superior talent here, McVay should look early and often to get his star RB the ball. Finishing around RB16 in most formats last year there’s no room for regression. Look for Gurley to be closer to the rookie of the year you remember him to be.

I do feel we can get more values at RB this year than usual due to the much hyped rookie RB class. This year I’m not only seeing the pass catching PPR back fall but also some guys who still have a decent role in the offense. Starting RBs like Matt Forte or Frank Gore for next to nothing. Even a RB like Rob Kelley is falling in the wake of Samaje Perine. It’s said that Perine isn’t catching on as fast as the industry hyped him. I personally feel he’s the long term RB to own. Kelley put in an impressive rookie campaign and is still said to be the starter. How long or short that leash is will be unknown to us. Kelley is a bargain in my opinion, I believe in redraft he should be above Perine and maybe even dynasty. Again lots of bargains this year.

In this update you can also see that the views of the Washington backfield has changed a little.

I would love to talk with any of you about your thoughts on this years rankings. If you haven’t gotten involved find our polls for the Census ranking on the Fantasy Life App.
