Standard running back rankings for Divisional round fantasy football

We take you through some of the best running backs going in the Divisional round for fantasy football.

Derrick Henry ate a good Patriots defense for lunch and now takes on a Ravens defense which is much better against the pass than run. He likely won’t get 34 carries again, but he will get his chances as the Titans try to slow down Lamar Jackson and the Ravens potent offense.

Aaron Jones and the Packers will likely get Jamaal Williams back this week, which cuts into Jones work a little, but the matchup is good and we know what Jones can do when he gets cooking. Jones is slightly ahead of Dalvin Cook but they have similar upside as co-No. 2s.

Mark Ingram has been a touchdown machine this season and there’s a good chance he keeps that up this week against the Titans. He doesn’t get the workload of some of the other backs but he’s in an offense that puts him in great situations and has a quarterback that scares defense to death.
