Top 50 running backs in Week 3 PPR leagues

The top three running backs in PPR leagues remain consistent, albeit somewhat jumbled, with Zeke still on top.

The usual names standout at the top the RB PPR list, but just jumbled in a different order. The only, and I mean ONLY, thing limiting Ezekiel Elliott’s ceiling this week is that this game against the Dolphins just gets too out of hand. It wasn’t enough to keep Zeke from topping the rankings, but it was enough to slide Tony Pollard into the back end, as he should get some work.

Christian McCaffrey’s coming off a rough game, an even with the QB situation up in the air in Carolina, we can count on the usual 25 touches for him in Arizona. Dalvin Cook’s probably been the most consistent pure RB play so far this season, which has him cracking the top three.

A name you might be surprised by is Frank Gore, who almost cracked the top-20. He saw a huge workload last week in the win over the Giants, so pay attention to Devin Singletary’s health. If Gore’s in line for a lot of work again, he’s a nice plug and play against the Bengals.
