Top Fantasy Running Back Averages

Other than the Tight End position, the drop from the Top Running Back to the second Ranked Running Back is greater than any other position. There is a 12% drop from the 1st to 2nd Running Back equal to almost 2.5 points per game. Only the Top 12 RBs have averaged above the league Running Back average (11.57 pts per game). The drop in points per RB ranking happens quickly within the Top 7, dropping around a point per ranking or 5%. This quick decline in points is one reason why there is usually an early run on the Top 5 Running Backs.
