RB Fantasy Points Study (2000-2004)

Note- fantasy points determined as follows (based on eleven or more games played)

  • 1 point every 10 rushing yards
  • 1 point every 10 receiving yards
  • 6 points per touchdown

Over the past four seasons, the following average fantasy points' totals have resulted in these rankings

Top Six Finish: 262 or More Fantasy Points
Excellent Starting RB Level
Top 12 Finish: 206 - 261.9 Fantasy Points
Good Starting RB Level
Top 24 Finish: 148 - 205.9 Fantasy Points
Dependable Starting RB Level
Top 36 Finish: 100 - 147.9 Fantasy Points
Decent Backup RB Level
Out of the Top 36: Less Than 100 Fantasy Points
Minimal Fantasy Value

If a player has played in eight or more games, we will also chart his fantasy points per game as follows:

Top Six Finish: 16.3 FPPG
Excellent Starting RB Level
Top 12 Finish: 12.9 - 16.2 FPPG
Good Starting RB Level
Top 24 Finish: 9.3 - 12.8 FPPG
Dependable Starting RB Level
Top 36 Finish: 6.3 - 9.2 FPPG
Decent Backup RB Level
Out of the Top 36: Less Than 6.3 FPPG
Minimal Fantasy Value

Note: If a player has less than 8 games in a season, that season will remain white.

We will be using the average totals above for comparison purposes.
