In 2019, the NFC North had about as wide a range of fantasy football production from their teams running backs as anyone could expect. 

Players like Green Bay’s Aaron Jones or Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook lit up the box scores and led fantasy rosters to the playoffs, all the while players like Detroit’s Kerryon Johnson or the split backfield of David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen were busy… not leading teams to the playoffs (fantasy or otherwise).

But the world of fantasy football is a volatile one. The production players saw in 2019 is bound to look different once 2020 rolls around, and the NFC North’s cast of running backs are no exception. 

Some are due for regression, some are set to ascend, and others are set to be cast aside in the fantasy realm. From the bottom of the barrel to the top of the throne, here are each teams’ projected starting running backs rank for the 2020 fantasy football season.
