RB Hierarchy: Week 17

Okay it is week 17. Some teams are going to sit starters. Some are not but should. This list will be comprised of normal starters. I am not going to dive into figuring out who the 4th string running back is for the Chiefs. Thank you.

Each week we will release “The Hierarchy” for each position. The Hierarchy will release players rank according to where we at NoHuddle believe they will fall for that particular week using a tiered system. The higher the tier, the better off, the lower the tier, the more you want to stay away from those players. All rankings are based on upcoming opponent, past performances, and projections for the current week and will be updated as the week progresses. Here we go:
