Fantasy football never ends. You can never be too prepared for your draft, so here's a ranking of the top 20 running backs for 2014 to get you started.
First, let's look at some running backs who failed to make the cut.
As recently reported by Roy Cummings of The Tampa Tribune, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford does not want to rely heavily on a single back. That's bad news for Doug Martin, whose stock was already dropping after a weak showing in the first six games of the 2013 season, not to mention his shoulder injury.
Arian Foster is coming off back surgery, and it looks like the immense number of touches he has had since 2010 has taken its toll. Foster will be 28 before the 2014 season begins and is a very risky proposition.
Fred Jackson has surprisingly not hit the proverbial wall yet but will turn 33 in February, and the wall is close.
Depending on their landing spots, Ohio State's Carlos Hyde and Auburn's Tre Mason are two rookies that can make an instant fantasy impact.
