Mother Nature has spoken and the rankings need to be updated. Here are my updated Week 14 fantasy football running back rankings.

1. Maurice Jones-Drew vs. Oakland
2. Peyton Hillis @ Buffalo
3. Knowshon Moreno vs. Arizona
4. Rashard Mendenhall vs. Cincinnati
5. Michael Turner @ Carolina
6. Adrian Peterson vs. New York Giants
7. Arian Foster vs. Baltimore (Monday)
8. Darren McFadden @ Jacksonville
9. LeGarrette Blount @ Washington
10. Ray Rice @ Houston (Monday)
11. LeSean McCoy @ Dallas
12. Jamaal Charles @ San Diego
13. Steven Jackson @ New Orleans
14. Christopher Ivory vs. St. Louis
15. Chris Johnson vs. Indianapolis (Thursday)
16. Ahmad Bradshaw @ Minnesota
17. BenJarvus Green-Ellis @ Chicago
18. Fred Jackson vs. Cleveland
19. Matt Forte vs. New England
20. James Starks @ Detroit
21. Jonathan Stewart vs. Atlanta
22. Felix Jones vs. Philadelphia
23. Cedric Benson @ Pittsburgh
24. Thomas Jones @ San Diego
25. Mike Tolbert vs. Kansas City
26. Brandon Jacobs @ Minnesota
27. Tashard Choice vs. Philadelphia
28. LaDainian Tomlinson vs. Miami
29. Tim Hightower vs. Denver
30. Marshawn Lynch @ San Francisco
31. Brian Westbrook vs. Seattle
32. Danny Woodhead @ Chicago
33. Jahvid Best vs. Green Bay
34. Mike Goodson vs. Atlanta
35. Michael Bush @ Jacksonville

Notable Changes:

  • With weather likely an issue in Pittsburgh, look for a heavier dose of Mendenhall.
  • Washington could also be experiencing the fury of Mother Nature making Blount ascend a few notches. I still don’t trust the murky Redskins RB situation enough to endorse a back.
  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Fred Jackson, and Cedric Benson also climbed a bit because the weather should make their offenses lean more heavily on the ground game.
  • I slid down James Starks a bit simply because we don’t know how many touches he’s going to get.
  • Ryan Mathews is expected to factor in this week, which hurt’s Tolbert’s fantasy value.
