The fantasy football playoffs are here, and our Week 14 fantasy RB PPR rankings are looking as strong as ever. Thanks to bye weeks (finally) being finished and several key players (hopefully) returning from injuries, there are plenty of viable options to trust in tough start 'em, sit 'em decisions.

One of the biggest stories of Week 14 will be the potential return of Christian McCaffrey. Since Week 2, McCaffrey has played just one game while battling a high-ankle sprain and a shoulder injury, and his fantasy owners are hoping to get him back before the first week of the playoffs. It seems like he'll be ready to play, and if he does, he'll be a staple of the top five of our PPR rankings moving forward. (UPDATE: McCaffrey has suffered yet another injury. This one is a quad problem and it seems likely he will miss Sunday's game, so he has been removed from these rankings.)

WEEK 14 STANDARD RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

There are a few other key injuries that will impact the RB landscape. James Conner (COVID), D'Andre Swift (illness), and Josh Jacobs (ankle) all will look to return to action in Week 14. They will all fall in the RB2 range if they are able to play. Devonta Freeman (ankle, COVID) and Joe Mixon (foot) will also be eligible to return from the IR this week.

WEEK 14 PPR RANKINGS: 
Quarterback | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Per usual, the likes of Nyheim Hines (@ Raiders), J.D. McKissic (@ 49ers), James White (@ Rams), and Chase Edmonds (@ Giants) will all see an upgrade in PPR formats because they play big roles in the passing games of their respective teams. Meanwhile, Zack Moss (vs. Steelers), Frank Gore (@ Seahawks), and Damien Harris (@ Rams) will all get slight downgrades, as they're used more as true between-the-tackles options and don't catch many passes.

It's worth noting that if Gore (concussion) doesn't play, backup Ty Johnson is an adept pass-catcher, so he might actually get a bump in value in PPR leagues in a game where the Jets figure to trail by quite a bit in the second half.
