Top 50 running back PPR rankings for Week 17 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best PPR running backs going in Week 17 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Week 17 is here and so are you, which means you need some fantasy help. The Ravens, Bills, Vikings and Texans don’t have much to play for and want to stay healthy for the playoffs. That means you should avoid their players. I’ve left them out of the rankings completely. They could end up playing enough to have useful fantasy points but I’m not willing to risk it.

Injury/Status Report

Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise are out. The Seahawks have signed Robert Turbin and might sign Marshawn Lynch. Travis Homer was the last man standing last week.

Jordan Howard should return this week in a must-win game for the Eagles. He will cut into Miles Sanders work some.

Derrick Henry is expected to play against the Texans in a must-win game for the Titans.

Josh Jacobs has a chance to play this week against the Broncos. If he does, DeAndre Washington will return to backup status.

Mark Ingram is out for Week 17 but so are most of the starters due to the Ravens having nothing to play for.

We are currently tracking which teams are going to rest starters on Sunday. We also have a rundown of which teams have what motivations for the season finale. As you’re making traditional and daily fantasy roster decisions, teams with nothing to play for are a little trickier to decipher.
