Updated Fantasy Football Week 10 Rankings: Top 70 RBs for the Rest of 2010

There was no movement in the top eight this week, but Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw moved up three spots to ninth among running backs for the rest of the year.

Bradshaw is coming off of his third straight double-digit fantasy day and although he failed to reach 100 yards for the first time since Week 5, the big story is that Bradshaw appears to be getting a bigger share of the ever-important goal-line touches.

Brandon Jacobs’ value still rises a few spots to 32nd, but that has more to do with the Giants' running game as a whole than it does Jacobs playing particularly well.

He did, however, have a touchdown in four straight games prior to being held out of the end zone in Week 9.

It’s becoming tougher to doubt Browns running back Peyton Hillis, who has been an absolute beast this season. That included last week compiling over 200 total yards and scoring twice as the Browns—to everyone’s surprise—stomped the red-hot Patriots.

Hillis has double-digit fantasy points in every game but one this season and has been surprisingly productive in the passing game all year.

He does have a tough matchup in Week 9 against the Jets, but has quite a few cupcake games on his schedule before the season is over. Even against stud defenses, though, Hillis remains practically a must-start in all scoring systems.

Which of these backs do you prefer in fantasy football for the rest of 2010?

Two of the biggest fallers this week are Carolina Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, who fell to 31st and 42nd, respectively.

Each player has had his chance to play with the majority of carries this season and neither has done much of anything to warrant even a consideration in starting lineups.

Add to that the fact that both players are injured and will miss this week’s game, leading the way for Mike Goodson (44th overall) to take the majority of carries, and this running game is an absolute disaster. Stay away. Stay very far away.

Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno has been described as being “as healthy now as he has been all season,” and is now officially off of the injury report.

Head coach Josh McDaniels has gone out of his way to say that he needs to get Moreno going, which certainly bodes well for his fantasy future for the rest of 2010.

With games left against the Chiefs, Cardinals, Raiders and Texans, Moreno’s best fantasy games are likely still ahead of him this year.

The Chicago running back situation has gotten more complicated and likely more frustrating for fantasy owners. Chester Taylor got his first touchdown of the year, furthering thoughts that he is now the Bears’ new goal-line back.

Though Chicago doesn’t run much at the goal line as it is, the point that Matt Forte is unlikely to be scoring many touchdowns in the near future is a tough one to swallow.

Taylor moves up 10 spots this week while Forte drops a spot down to 16th among running backs.
