Fantasy Football 2012: Top 40 Running Backs for Standard-Scoring Leagues

Philly's LeSean McCoy (1,624 total yards in 2011) racked up 20 total touchdowns last year (17 rushing), tops among NFL running backs.

The following slideshow details my top 40 running backs right now—a painfully subjective exercise that reflects the 2012 market for runners in standard-scoring leagues, not necessarily Points Per Reception outfits.

Even with a thorough assignment like this, there are bound to be omissions (or snubs).

But ultimately, it was difficult to make a case for LeGarrette Blount, Alex Green, Kevin Smith, Delone Carter, Pierre Thomas, Ryan Grant, Daniel Thomas, Felix Jones, David WilsonIsaiah Pead, Robert Turbin, Ronnie Hillman, Knowshon Moreno, Evan Royster, Mike Tolbert, Cedric Benson or Rashard Mendenhall gracing the list—factoring in their current situations.

Enjoy the show!
