Fantasy football Week 2 projections: Running backs (non-PPR)

A couple Jacksons, and a Johnson join everyone’s new favorite running back, Arian Foster, in the projected top five for Week 2.

This is no perfect projection model. There are many improvements that could be made but we had relatively good accuracy with it last week despite the flaws. Translation: Use these at your own discretion but they should be pretty darn good.

Other rankings: QB | RB | RB (PPR) | WR | WR (PPR) | TE | TE (PPR) | K | DEF
