Fantasy PPR Rankings 2012: Running Backs 1-25

// ]]>

Trevor Pryce and Arian Foster - Houston Texans v New York Jets
Yes I know it seems a little early for Fantasy Football Rankings, yet the NFL Draft is just two weeks away and once that’s completed we are going to be on a crash course towards training camp, so Fantasy owners that want to get a step ahead, need to begin their research for the 2012 NFL season now!

These rankings are based on the standard PPR scoring system. For instance, QBs receive a point for every 25 yards passing and four points per touchdown pass.

Players get a point for every ten yards rushing and six points for a rushing touchdown. Receiving yardage is the exact same, as players get a point for every ten yards and six points for a receiving touchdowns.In addition to yardage points, all players in PPR Leagues get a point per reception, which is the main difference between PPR leagues and standard scoring leagues.

Some leagues also get bonus points for reaching 100 yards rushing, scoring long touchdowns or eclipsing 300 yards passing, these rankings will not reflect those types of scoring features. However, we will have analysis specific to those types of leagues in the future.

Therefore without further ado, are my very early 2012 RB rankings:

1. Arian Foster

2. LeSean Mccoy

3. Ray Rice

4. Matt Forte

5. Maurice Jones-Drew

6. Fred Jackson

7. Marshawn Lynch

8. Adrian Peterson

9. Frank Gore

10. Darren McFadden

11.Reggie Bush

12. Darren Sproles

13. Chris Johnson

14. Ryan Matthews

15. Demarco Murray

16. Steven Jackson

17. Jamal Charles

18. Michael Turner

19. Ahmad Bradshaw

20. Javhid Best

21. Roy Helu

22. Beanie Wells

23. Trent Richardson

24. Shonne Greene

25. Willis McGahee
