PigPen Weekly WK12 - Who's In, Who's Out (RB)
How can one man write about 62 total RBs in one article? VP does just that this week with another edition of 'PigPen Weekly'.

- Ancient CFF Proverb
We've reached the point in the season now where I think most of the viable options in CFF have already been rostered, or at least previously discussed in my waiver wire articles. Instead, with the playoff period starting in many of my leagues, or this being a do-or-die week to get into the playoffs in many others, I figured I'd switch it up and provide a weekly ranking of the most important position: the RB position.
Below, you will find that I have segmented this article into three parts. The first is a ranking of RBs I like this week, with rationale provided for each. The second segment is a list of RBs that are generally very good, but I do not like this week, with rationale provided for each. The final segment is where I provide some thoughts on RBs that I am conflicted about this week.
There are a total of 65 RBs with (62 with analysis explained) covered in this article.
