With the fantasy football season only weeks away, Detroit Jock City is hard at work, ranking the NFL’s best so that YOU can take home your league’s trophy this year![Related-tag tag="Fantasy Football"]

Recently we covered the quarterback position and now it’s time to rate the running backs. The halfback position is possibly the most important in fantasy football, so you want to make sure you get it right — that’s where we come in!


Chris Johnson

RB, New York Jets

CJ2k wants 2k yds again. Not likely without a true feature role, but he can still offer decent RB2 upside.

Frank Gore

RB, San Francisco 49ers

Gore is now 31. Expect more of a shared work load this season. Still good upside for RB2.

Shane Vereen

RB, New England Patriots

Vereen has explosive talent and a big role but his wrist still not 100 percent. He also averaged just 2.8 receptions during the final 5 games last year. Expect the Patriots to have a crowded backfield in 2014.

Joique Bell

RB, Detroit Lions

Bell is likely to lead the Lions in carries with RB Reggie Bush serving as the third down back and change of pace back. Look for Bell to be the fantasy back to own in Detroit in 2014. He is a solid RB2 with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and score rushing touchdowns.

Ray Rice

RB, Baltimore Ravens

Last year certainly showed us that there is some wear on Rice’s tires. Perhaps he returns with a huge year, perhaps not.
