Fantasy Football: Top Five Skill Players at Each Position

2 of 4

Running Back

1. LeV’eon Bell
2. Adrian Peterson
3. Marshawn Lynch
4. Jamaal Charles
5a. LeSean McCoy
5b. Jeremy Hill

The season that Le’Veon Bell had was truly amazing last year and it looks like he is going to have another. He is suspended the first two games but is still worth a top pick. Adrian Peterson is back and with a year of rest and reflection will be looking to run wild. This is Peterson’s 9th year in the league, he has had 10 touchdowns or more and over 1250 yards in every season but the two he missed for injury/suspension. Jamal Charles and LeSean McCoy have a little buyer beware in my opinion, both are starting to show what the NFL does to a running back. Jeremy Hill is probably one of the safer picks at running back this year, he’s young, healthy, and will get the volume of a RB1.
