[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]CFBDynasty ranks the best Running Backs for the 2018 College Fantasy Football season. Similar to QB last year, this season presents an obvious #1 at the RB position. These are our pre-spring rankings which are certain to change multiple times before our final college fantasy rankings before the season begins.

Check out where some of these players landed in our first Pre-Spring Mock Draft.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3917″ img_size=”large” title=”#10 D’Andre Swift”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]D’Andre Swift had such a great freshman season that he was earning more playing time over two running backs that will be drafted on the first two days of the NFL Draft, these were in crucial games too on Georgia’s run to the national championship. He’s a do-it-all back who will start his first season in 2018.

Schedule Difficulty: B

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Auburn, vs UMass, vs Georgia Tech

2017 Stats: 618 ru yards & 3 TD, 153 rec yards & 1 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3916″ img_size=”large” title=”#9 David Montgomery”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]David Montgomery is very likely to be the top running back selected in the 2019 NFL Draft. He’s a beast and is one of the leading RB’s at breaking tackles.

Schedule Difficulty: B

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Baylor, @ Texas, vs Kansas State

2017 Stats: 1146 ru yards & 11 TD, 296 rec yards & 0 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3915″ img_size=”large” title=”#8 Cam Akers”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Cam Akers is a superstar. He should prove that in 2018 with a great increase in touches and production under the new coaching staff. He should be the feature of the offense on a team with questions at QB and WR.

Schedule Difficulty: A

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Notre Dame, vs Boston College, vs Florida

2017 Stats: 1024 ru yards & 7 TD, 116 rec yards & 1 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3913″ img_size=”large” title=”#7 A.J. Dillion”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]The freshman A.J. Dillion from Boston College had a monstrous season in the ACC. He’ll continue to be the feature of the offense in 2018. In the last 7 games of the season, Dillion carried the ball from 23 to 39 times in each. The ease of first 7 games of the 2018 season should help Dillion to start off very strong.

Schedule Difficulty: B

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Clemson, @ FSU, vs Syracuse

2017 Stats: 1589 ru yards & 14 TD, 0 rec yards & 0 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3911″ img_size=”large” title=”#6 J.K. Dobbins”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]J.K. Dobbins is the full package as a running back and he’s likely to improve on his numbers during the 2018 season. His backup, which began the season as the starter and returns this season, scored 10 TD. Combine that with the exit of JT Barrett who ate into carries and rushing TDs, Dobbins could be in for a huge year.

Schedule Difficulty: B

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Michigan State, @ Maryland, vs Michigan

2017 Stats: 1403 ru yards & 7 TD, 135 rec yards & 1 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3910″ img_size=”large” title=”#5 Rodney Anderson”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Rodney Anderson really came on strong later in the 2017 season. We anticipate he’ll continue the momentum into a great campaign for the full 2018 season as the staple of the Sooners’ offense.

Schedule Difficulty: C+

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Oklahoma State, vs Kansas, @ West Virginia

2017 Stats: 1161 ru yards & 13 TD, 281 rec yards & 5 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3909″ img_size=”large” title=”#4 Jonathan Taylor”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]As a true freshman in 2017, Jonathan Taylor broke some school records on his way to more than 1900 yards while adding 13 touchdowns for the Badgers. Wisconsin is known for their rushing attack and it will continue the next two seasons with Taylor. A great every-week starter in fantasy.

Schedule Difficulty: C

Fantasy Playoffs: @ Penn State, @ Purdue, vs Minnesota

2017 Stats: 1977 ru yards & 13 TD, 95 rec yards & 0 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3907″ img_size=”large” title=”#3 Juwan Washington”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Just take a look at Juwan Washington’s stats below as the backup. 1,800 yards and 15 touchdowns are more likely than not for Washington’s 2018 campaign as the starter.

Schedule Difficulty: C+

Fantasy Playoffs: vs UNLV, @ Fresno State, vs Hawaii

2017 Stats: 759 ru yards & 7 TD, 39 rec yards & 0 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3905″ img_size=”large” title=”#2 Bryce Love”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]A 2,000 yard running back is #2!? Yep. Bryce Love is a fantastic back in a great situation to continue producing at Stanford. The schedule is very tough, especially on the road. Luckily he’s got a fairly easy fantasy playoff run.

Schedule Difficulty: A

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Oregon State, @ California, @ UCLA

2017 Stats: 2118 ru yards & 19 TD, 33 rec yards & 0 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3903″ img_size=”large” title=”#1 Devin Singletary”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_empty_space height=”45px”][vc_column_text]Devin Singletary finished the 2017 season as the #1 fantasy running back in college football. His 32 rushing touchdowns beat out Rashad Penny by 9 and topped Saquon Barkley by 14! He will continue to be the focal point of the FAU offense which is always fun to watch with Lane Kiffin as the head man. The first pick in every draft should be Singletary.

Schedule Difficulty: C-

Fantasy Playoffs: vs Western Kentucky, @ North Texas, vs Charlotte

2017 Stats: 1920 ru yards & 32 TD, 198 rec yards & 1 TD[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuCjH0cY24k”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
