Week 16 Fantasy RB PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts

The fantasy championship game is here, and owners who have made it this far will be making their most important lineup decisions of the season. Our Week 16 fantasy PPR RB rankings can help you make those crucial start ’em, sit ’em decisions and identify potential waiver wire streamers and sleepers (Salvon Ahmed, Tony Pollard, Jeff Wilson Jr., Le’Veon Bell) to target if you need some help at the RB2 or flex spot.

Most fantasy owners who have made it this far probably feel pretty good about their starters, but be it because of matchups or injuries, you might have a couple players you rotate. This week, Christian McCaffrey’s status will continue to loom large as he tries to return from a thigh injury. He was doubtful last week, so it seems unlikely he’ll make it back against Washington, especially with the Panthers having nothing to play for.

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Aside from McCaffrey, guys like Antonio Gibson (toe), Ezekiel Elliott (calf), Ronald Jones (finger/COVID), Clyde Edwards-Helaire (leg), and Damien Harris (ankle) will have a major impact on fantasy rankings, especially in PPR formats. Gibson would be a true RB1 ahead of a nice matchup against the Panthers. If he can’t go, J.D. McKissic will be a big-time PPR sleeper with RB2 potential. With Jones, Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy would form a nice committee, and since both can catch passes, they have good PPR upside against the Lions. Meanwhile, Harris missing time would make Sony Michel and James White nice flex options, with White being a high-end flex because of his receiving ability. Edwards-Helaire’s likely absence means Bell will be a legit RB2.

Other backs who move up in the PPR format include Kareem Hunt (@ Jets), D’Andre Swift (vs. Buccaneers), Nyheim Hines (@ Steelers), Devin Singletary (@ Patriots), Ty Johnson (vs. Browns), and Lynn Bowden (@ Raiders). Players who move down are the more TD-dependent flex options, such as Zack Moss (@ Patriots), Frank Gore (vs. Browns), and Gus Edwards (vs. Giants).


Reminder: As always, we expect to make plenty of changes to these RB PPR rankings throughout the week, so check back for updates. For individual analysis of key RBs, click here.
