When it comes to fantasy football, the lifeblood of a team is usually based on its running back composition. They are the cornerstones to successful teams.

Running backs who receive the bulk of the carries for their team (think Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles, LeSean McCoy, Matt Forte and so on) are so coveted that you grab them and never look back.
