Here are the top 30 fantasy football running backs entering week one of the NFL preseason:

1. Eddie Lacy- GB
– Lacy came on strong at the end of 2015, and while Rodgers gets all the credit, Lacy is the reason the Packers are so successful.

2. Jamaal Charles- KC
– Charles is one of the lone playmaker’s on the Chiefs squad and will be utilized as such.

3. Adrian Peterson- MIN
– Peterson is a huge question mark heading into 2015 after only playing in one game last season. That being said, he is a freak athlete on an up-and-coming team.

4. Le’Veon Bell- PIT
– Bell is suspended the first two games, otherwise he would be higher.

5. Marshawn Lynch- SEA
– Every year I think Lynch can’t continue his production, and every year he does, so I just mark him down as a top five back and move on.

6. Matt Forte- CHI
– Forte, similar to McCoy will get his touches, but will his production still be there after all of the wear-and-tear his body has received?

7. CJ Anderson- DEN
– The Broncos will be more balanced in 2015, and Anderson should be the beneficiary.

8. LeSean McCoy- BUF
– The Bills will throw the ball less than anyone in the NFL this season, meaning McCoy will get the ball…a lot. But a back with 700+ touches in the last two season’s expect either a drop-off in production or an injury.

9. Jeremy Hill- CIN
– Jeremy Hill has all the talent to be a top five back in fantasy this season, and I expect he will be when it is all said and done.

10. DeMarco Murray- PHI
– Murray leaves Big D headed to Philly with an offensive system he is not accustomed to and an O-line that will be ugly to watch. Do not expect a repeat of 2014.

11. Joseph Randle- DAL
– When you have the best O-line in the last decade and a brittle Darren McFadden as a backup, Randle will end up being the Cowboys workhorse similar to Murray last year.

12. Carlos Hyde- SF
– Hyde will not be in Frank Gore’s shadow this season and I don’t expect Reggie Bush to put a dent into his touches much either.

13. Alfred Morris- WAS
– Morris will get his touches in the Washington offense, but provides a lot less value in PPR formats.

14. Latavius Murray- OAK
– I am a big fan of Murray who has looked fantastic in Training Camp. Great value in most leagues.

15. Justin Forsett- BAL
-Forsett had a career year in 2014, but do not expect the same type of production from a soon-to-be 30-year-old RB.

16. Lamar Miller- MIA
– If Miller can stay healthy he should have his fair share of touches in 2015, making him a hot choice on draft day.

17. Mark Ingram- NO
– Ingram will most likely be the goal line back and can be very valuable in TD-only leagues.

18. Jonathan Stewart- CAR
– Finally the lead back in Carolina will Stewart stop disappointing fantasy owners?

19. Doug Martin- TB
– Will Doug Martin finally become Doug Martin again? With a better QB and O-line he could return to his rookie form.

20. Melvin Gordon (R)- SD
– Gordon enters his rookie campaign with a lot of hype, but do not put too much stock in a rookie back with little pass catching ability.

21. Frank Gore- IND
– A lot of experts have Gore ranked higher, but the Colts O-line is not good and Gore is getting up there in age (32).

22. Andre Ellington- ARZ
– If he can stay healthy, Ellington is electric, but he hasn’t proven he can and rookie David Johnson will cut into his touches.

23. Giovani Bernard- CIN
– Bernard looks to take a back seat to Jeremy Hill this season but holds a lot of value in PPR leagues.

24. LeGarrette Blount- NE
-Blount turned a stellar playoff run into a starting gig heading into 2015. Will it last?

25. Todd Gurley (R)- STL
– If Gurley is healthy to start the year he would be higher on this list, I don’t know when he will be 100% after coming off of an ACL injury.

26. Chris Ivory- NYJ
-New Jets head coach Todd Bowles will be running the ball often, especially with Fitzpatrick under center.

27. Bishop Sankey- TEN
-Sankey is a sleeper back who under-performed last year as a rookie.

28. TJ Yeldon (R)- JAX
– The Jags reached on Yeldon in the draft, but he will see plenty of touches.

29. CJ Spiller- NO
-A change of scenery should help rejuvenate Spiller’s career, but not as well as many experts predict.

30. Alfred Blue-HOU
– With the loss of Arian Foster, Blue becomes a hot commodity in many fantasy drafts.
