Week 7 NFL DFS Cheat Sheet – Running Backs (RB) – FanDuel & DraftKings Expert Lineup Picks

Week 7 NFL DFS Cheat Sheet – Running Backs (RB) – FanDuel & DraftKings Expert Lineup Picks & Analysis.

Welcome to the Running Back Cheat Sheet.

In this post we sharing our top options and plays at the RB position for each DFS week of the 2016-2017 NFL season.

We will break them down into four tiers and give you our top plays in each tier, we will also be highlighting players for a specific site when the pricing or scoring of that site calls for it.

Editors Note: We have made a couple of quick changes to the RB Cheat Sheets. The first change is to the Tiers. We have switched the tiers and renamed them. The second change we have made is to the slates we will look at for our running backs. With both FanDuel and DraftKings only including Sunday’s games in their main slates we will now only focus on those games. At the end of each article we will highlight any plays from the Thursday and Monday night games we may like.

The tiers are as follows:

  1. Barry Sanders Tier
  2. Thurman Thomas Tier
  3. PPR Backs
  4. Goal Line Backs

Here we go…

Barry Sanders Tier

The Barry Sanders Tier is for your elite backs. The backs that are going to cost you a pretty penny but will also get you a ton of fantasy points.

Top Play- DeMarco Murray ($8,700 FD; $7,200 DK)

I know that Murray let a lot of owners down last week as he had a pedestrian game for his standards but I am going back to the well with him. Murray is easily my top back this week as he is in the top ten in every statistical category for running backs that I look at and in a great match-up. The Colts are allowing the second most fantasy points to running backs in the NFL this season. Murray should run wild once again this week and I would be shocked if he did not have at least 20 fantasy points.
