Fantasy Fox: Top 75 tailbacks in standard-scoring leagues

The Fantasy Fox offers his updated rankings of the top 75 running backs in standard-scoring leagues, a countdown that has plenty of changes among the various drafting tiers -- but none involving the Big Three of superstar rushers.

Adrian Peterson (left -- five seasons of 1,600 total yards), LeSean McCoy (middle -- 2,146 total yards, 11 TDs last year) and Jamaal Charles (right -- 1,980 total yards, 19 TDs) are universally regarded as the top three standard-scoring backs this preseason.
