It has long been believed that the running back position is the most important one in terms of fantasy football rankings. Land yourself a top-5 running back and you are ahead of your competition. Nowadays, NFL teams are using multiple running backs out of the backfield and it makes it even more challenging to draft the guy that is going to best help your team win.

In 2021, we are continuing to see top flight running backs be more valuable than ever and this is leading to upward of 10 running backs being drafted in Round 1 of 12-team or more fantasy football leagues.

The time is now to check out Marc Caviglia’s fantasy football running back rankings to see who you should take on draft day.
