As we roll along this offseason, we are laying the groundwork for early best ball drafts, new dynasty startups, and everything else under the fantasy sun as we gear up for the next NFL season.

My full 2024 fantasy football rankings are already available as part of the Sharp Fantasy Football Draft Kit, but we also wanted to add some notes to those rankings for each position.

These rankings will move and be updated throughout the offseason as the landscape changes.

While these rankings will only have a short blurb for each player, there will be more in-detail player writeups coming with the full tiers later in June after our 2024 NFL Preview book drops.

This list will be based on full-PPR settings, but check out the full rankings to see how the deck gets shuffled under other scoring settings that do not weigh receptions as heavily.

Fantasy RB Rankings 2024:

  1. Christian McCaffrey, 49ers
  2. Breece Hall, Jets
  3. Bijan Robinson, Falcons
  4. Jahmyr Gibbs, Lions
  5. Jonathan Taylor, Colts

2024 Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings:

1. Christian McCaffrey: In the past four full seasons, has finished as the RB2, RB1, RB2, and RB1 in overall scoring. Was the RB1 and RB5 in points scored per game in the two seasons he was limited by injury. Has now played 33 games with the 49ers, scoring 39 touchdowns (with a passing touchdown) in those games.

2. Breece Hall: Second among all running backs in total yards despite a slow start to the season in terms of playing time and operating in one of the league’s worst offensive climates. Entering 2024 fully removed from his ACL injury with Aaron Rodgers returning and significant pieces added to the offensive line. Set up to compete for RB1 overall.

3. Bijan Robinson: Only five other running backs had more total yards a year ago. Did that on just 50.6% of his backfield touches. Others ahead of him had 69.5%, 72.1%, 62.2%, 76.0%, and 76.1%. Offensive climate is much more appealing in year two.

4. Jahmyr Gibbs: Turned 234 touches into 1,261 total yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie. Room to increase his role as a pass catcher, but our first back who can be limited by overall touches.
Over the final nine games playing with David Montgomery, had four weeks as the RB24 or lower.

5. Jonathan Taylor: Looking to bounce back from back-to-back down years after his mammoth 2021 season. Showed his immense ceiling in the season finale, but could have touchdowns and receptions impacted by Anthony Richardson.
