If you watched our Sideways Saturdays Livestream last week, you caught these rankings already, but I thought I would put them here on the technological pen and paper so you can reference them at any point without going through an hour and 46-minute livestream. If that is your thing though, I highly recommend going back and giving it a watch. The content from @HermsNFL, @DFF_Karp, and @KiddFlashFF may not be Velveeta Shells & Cheese, but I assure you that it is liquid gold.
A final point of order, these are just my rankings and just the list. If you want the deeper dive, you will have to go through the video and enjoy!
McLateral's Dynasty Rankings: Top 12 RBs
1. Christian McCaffrey (CAR)
2. Dalvin Cook (MIN)
3. Alvin Kamara (NO)
4. Jonathan Taylor (IND)
A quick note: I originally had Taylor at RB5 and Derrick Henry (TEN) at RB4. but further discussion with @DFF_Karp during the livestream led me to switch their spots.
5. Derrick Henry (TEN)
See note about Jonathan Taylor (IND)
6. Nick Chubb (CLE)
7. Saquon Barkley (NYG)
8. Miles Sanders (PHI)
Note: These rankings do reflect the firing of Doug Pederson, but not the subsequent hiring of Nick Sirianni. The Carson Wentz being the likely starter aspect does concern me, but at this point, I am considering Sirianni a positive for Sanders' outlook given that Indianapolis RBs were always fantasy-relevant while Sirianni was the offensive coordinator there.
9. Ezekiel Elliot (DAL)
10. Aaron Jones (GB)
11. Antonio Gibson (WFT)
12. Cam Akers (LAR)
A quick note: I originally had Josh Jacobs (LV) here and Cam Akers just outside at RB13, but moved up Akers due to his performance against the Packers. I believe I covered this in the livestream but thought I would highlight it here just in case.
