Fantasy football running back rankings for Week 15

We are a culture of rankings. We rank our favorite movies, restaurants and honey-do list priorities. Breakfast cereal? I easily have Lucky Charms ranked well ahead of Shredded Wheat. A Ford Mustang ranked higher than a Ford Fiesta. Vacuuming the living room ranked a few notches below cleaning the toilet on my annoying household chores list.

Rankings provide order to an otherwise chaotic situation. Like picking a fantasy football starter between two able candidates with the whole season hanging in the balance.

Week 15 provides plenty of chaos and entire seasons hang in the balance. Below are my running back rankings for this week, with the hope of bringing some order to things. Feel free to leave comments below or on our interactive forums.
