Take a quick look at the fantasy football landscape over the past 10 years and you will see a significant drop in production among the running back position. Gone are the days in which every NFL team has a bell cow running back that is guaranteed 20-plus touches weekly. Nowadays, it’s a passing league and fantasy football players are at an extreme disadvantage if they don’t get their hands on the top running backs.

To find out who those top runners are in Week 1, read our fantasy football running back rankings.
