2016 Rookie Running Back Rankings

smitty fantasy football advice

Below you will find my 2016 NFL Fantasy Football Rookie Rankings, but these rankings will NOT necessarily mirror a 2016 rookie-only fantasy draft. So, with that said, be certain to use rookie-only ADPs along with these rankings should you draft off them, as I’m making some bold statements, like with Kenneth Dixon and Wendell Smallwood.

1. Ezekiel Elliott RB, Ohio State
2. Kenneth Dixon RB, Louisiana Tech
3. Derrick Henry RB, Alabama
4. Alex Collins RB, Arkansas
5. Devontae Booker RB, Utah (U-Sleeper)
6. Wendell Smallwood RB, West Virginia (U-Sleeper)
7. CJ Procise RB, Notre Dame
8. Deandre Washington RB, Texas Tech
9. Josh Ferguson RB, Illinois
10. Keith Marshall RB, Georgia (U-Sleeper)
The Rest of the RBs
