Week 7 Fantasy Football Running Back PPR Rankings

Injuries and timeshares are working together to create some interesting RB2 and flex options in our Week 7 fantasy RB PPR rankings. See all the potential running back sleepers this week.

Alvin Kamara was out in Week 6 because of a bye, and fantasy football owners in PPR leagues had to be devastated by his absence. Kamara returns this week with Josh Jacobs, Chris Carson, Justin Jackson, Joshua Kelley, and Latavius Murray, which provides a big boost to our Week 7 RB PPR rankings. Some owners might still have to rely on a few sleepers (and possible waiver wire pickups) to buoy their lineups, but the rankings at least get some power back at the top.

Of course, some depth is lost because of the absences of Dalvin Cook, Alexander Mattison, Jonathan Taylor, Mark Ingram, J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Myles Gaskin, who will all be on bye in Week 7. Without those players, owners might have to make some riskier moves at RB2 or flex with a few committee backs.

A couple of players who could be worth trusting are Antonio Gibson (vs. Cowboys) and D'Andre Swift (@ Falcons). Both rookies are going up against weaker defenses and are starting to earn more touches out of the backfield as receivers. Both appear to be RB2s in PPR formats and could solidify their roles if they continue to play well as the season goes along.

Another potential PPR sleeper to target this week is Jamaal Williams. The Packers' back is getting more touches than many expected heading into the year, and this week he's facing a Texans run defense is allowing the most rushing yards per game. Williams could benefit from this even with limited carries. He catches a fair amount of passes, so don't be afraid to trust him as a flex sleeper or DFS option.

Other PPR risers include Chase Edmonds (vs. Seahawks), James White (vs. 49ers), J.D. McKissic (vs. Cowboys), and Boston Scott (vs. Giants), all of whom have potential flex value in PPR leagues.

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.
