Another week, another set of injuries to contend with. The RB1 for our weekly rankings has been Christian McCaffrey all season so far, but the San Francisco 49er suffered an oblique strain in last Sunday’s game, and as of this writing, his status for Week 7 (and beyond) is up in the air. Your new RB1? Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders.

If you’re looking for help at running back, well, this isn’t a waiver wire article. I’m not looking at percentage-rostered numbers for the various fantasy platforms. But, I can point out a few players that I’m higher on than FantasyPros’ Expert Consensus Rankings. Maybe you’ll find a diamond in the rough in there.
