Week 17 Running Back Rankings: Maurice Jones-Drew Still Matters

Week 17 Running Back Rankings

Against the Colts, Maurice Jones-Drew will be one of a few running backs who will see a big workload in Week 17.

For owners who need to play this weekend, I feel for you. There is no worse feeling than playing players who have no need to play because their teams are out of the playoffs, even with a win or will play for a couple series and then get benched in order to rest for the first week of the playoffs. And as for us who have to type up our rankings, that's a feat in itself. The good thing is that there are a lot of players who still matter in the fantasy world, like Maurice Jones-Drew. MJD may not be in the playoffs this year, but at least his fantasy owners know that they will get, barring injury, a full four quarters out of him against the Colts. That makes him No. 1 in our fantasy football RB rankings this week.

Below are my running back rankings for Week 17. Enjoy this week everyone, because the season's end is right around the corner. Make sure to check back often as this list will change daily.
