Here’s an updated look at my Week 1 running back rankings taking injuries into account. I also removed Adrian Peterson and Pierre Thomas since they played already.

.
1. Chris Johnson
2.  Frank Gore
3. Maurice Jones-Drew
4. Ryan Mathews
5. Ray Rice
6. Steven Jackson
7. Arian Foster
8. Rashard Mendenhall
9. Michael Turner
10. Jamaal Charles
11. Joseph Addai
12. Matt Forte
13. Ronnie Brown
14. Ryan Grant
15. Jerome Harrison
16. Cadillac Williams

29. Clinton Portis
30. Felix Jones
31. Thomas Jones
32. Marion Barber III
33. Fred Taylor
34. Knowshon Moreno
35. Chester Taylor
.
Notable changes:
- Beanie Wells was removed from the list because of his injury. Tim Hightower jumped a few slots.
- Darren McFadden jumped a few slots because of Michael Bush’s injury.
- Laurence Maroney is banged up making Fred Taylor the likely option to receive the bulk of the carries. Taylor makes the list.
- Knowshon Moreno is back. He’ll share the load with Buckhalter, but is still a low-end flex option.
- Chester Taylor made the expanded list as he’s facing Detroit.
