2016 Fantasy Football: Early Running Back Top 10

Alessandro Miglio dives into his initial top 10 rankings at running back for 2016.

A rookie. Two greybeards. Coming back from injuries. Figuring out a muddled backfield. Losing weight. Gaining carries. New contracts. New teams.

The top 10 running backs are filled with intrigue already, and it's only May.

1. Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers

Convincing Le’Veon Bell fans that he was a dangerous No. 1 pick last year was a futile effort. Not only was his suspension liable to put owners behind the eight ball early in the season, but his lingering offseason knee issue proved prophetic. So what makes him the top running back off the board this year?

Simply put, the Pittsburgh offense is arguably the best in the NFL. The passing offense certainly was, and we saw DeAngelo Williams’ reanimated corpse average 4.5 yards per carry last season in lieu of Bell, who played just six games upon return from his suspension before injury. He averaged 4.9 YPC himself when he was healthy and not-suspended, and he caught an eye-popping 83 passes out of the backfield in 2014.

There is a reason Bell was the No. 1 player off the board on average a year ago in spite of his suspension.
