PPR Fantasy Football:
Where does Marshawn Lynch rank in our FantasyPPR.com 2012 fantasy football running back rankings?
While we at FantasyPPR.com specialize in PPR fantasy football we also realize that many fantasy owners still elect to play in standard scoring leagues only. Therefore, in order to meet the needs of standard league fantasy owners as well, we have produced our 2012 fantasy football rankings for standard scoring formats.
The running back position is one that is relatively weak as we enter the 2012 NFL season. There is some good value that can be had at the top of the rankings but once you get past the first few rounds of your league draft, you will find that quality running backs are going to be scarce.
Whether it’s because of injuries (Matt Forte, Adrian Peterson, Darren McFadden, Demarco Murray) or contract concerns (Maurice Jones-Drew, Forte), there are a number of players that would normally go very high in the draft without question that all of a sudden have question marks.
Regardless, there is still some very talented players available, even outside the Top-10, fantasy owners are just going to have to be willing to go bold and take on a little bit of risk. However, as long as you follow our advice here at FantasyPPR.com, we will tell you what players to go after and what players to avoid.
For now here is our first edition of our 2012 fantasy football running back rankings for standard leagues:

Incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson is No. 1 on the Seahawks' depth chart over high-dollar free agent signee Matt Flynn and third-round draft choice Russell Wilson. For now, coach Pete Carroll is standing by what he said in minicamp: Jackson will take snaps with the first unit while Flynn and Wilson prove they're ready to run offense. Carroll said Jackson earned those...

When the Seahawks drafted Bruce Irvin with the 15th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, many took it as a surprise.
