Fantasy Fox: Top 50 Running Backs For Week 16

LeSean McCoy (left) and Jamaal Charles (five TDs vs. the Raiders) have each notched 200-yard outings over the last two weeks.

Here are my top 50 running backs for Week 16 (standard-scoring leagues).

This countdown doesn’t lean on a particular stat. It’s merely an educated best guess of which rushers will tally the best combination of total yards and touchdowns for the NFL’s 16th weekend.
