Week 16 RB Rankings

ProbableC.J. Anderson (Ankle)
Questionable: Jamaal Charles (Knee), Khiry Robinson (Forearm), Reggie Bush X (Ankle), C.J. Spiller (Groin), Frank Gore (Dizzies)
Doubtful [Not Ranked]: Ronnie Hillman (Foot), Rashad Jennings (Ankle), Roy Helu Jr. (Turf Toe), Carlos Hyde (Leg), DeAngelo Williams (Hand), Ryan Mathews (Ankle)
OutAndre Ellington (Hip), He went to Jerick McKinnon (Back), Denard Dog Robinson (Foot), Montee Ball (Groin), LeGarrette Blount (Shoulder)

Note: DeMarco Murray (Present) is expected to be a game time decision vs IND. I’ve done the rankings (for the moment) as if he’s going to be out. If Murray (Broken Hand) is active, he’ll be listed as RB9 and Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar will drop significantly.
