Week 1 Running Back Selector

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Running backs are the backbone of Fantasy Football, but identifying the right ones to start on a weekly basis is the challenge.

Our Running Back Selector incorporates three different sources of data to help you identify which runners to trust each week. You can cater the visualization to PPR formats and to your specific statistical needs. See how your players stack up against one another and the rest of the running back pool each week!

Note: This tool will be updated each week throughout the season with weekly projection data.

Do you have any feedback or suggestions? E-mail us at fantasyfootball@cbsinteractive.com and put "Running Back Selector" in the subject line.

Chiefs' Reid says TE Travis Kelce has 'slightly sprained ankle'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Chiefs coach Andy Reid delivered some good news Tuesday regarding the status of tight end Travis Kelce, who left practice Monday due to an injury.

"Travis has a slightly sprained ankle,” Reid said, per the team's official website. “It's not a high ankle sprain. There's a chance if we were playing a regular season game, he'd have a pretty good shot of playing.

“It looks like he got his foot caught in the grass. He just tweaked his ankle a little bit. I think he’s lucky the grass gave way a little bit. That’s what happened.”

The Chiefs open the season Sept. 13 against the Texans, which gives Kelce a little less than two weeks to get ready for the start of the 2015 campaign.

Kelce had a breakout season in 2014, totaling 67 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns. He is expected to play a key role again in the Chiefs' passing game this season.


Browns backup QB Johnny Manziel expects to be ready for opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:05 pm ET) Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel said Tuesday he will be ready for the season opener against the Jets. The second-year quarterback missed last week's preseason game due to tendinitis in his right throwing elbow.

"It's something I've dealt with ever season since my freshman year at (Texas) A&M,'' he said, per Cleveland.com.

Manziel added he is confident the soreness will dissipate once he starts throwing less and doesn't feel the injury will negatively impact his career.


Falcons' Quinn says LB Brooks Reed (groin) might need surgery
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:48 pm ET) Falcons linebacker Brooks Reed will get a second opinion on the groin injury that has sidelined him for most of the summer, coach Dan Quinn said Tuesday.

Quinn added surgery might be an option for the veteran linebacker, who signed a five-year deal with Atlanta in March.

“We certainly are concerned,” Quinn said. “We’re just trying to get it right in terms of him getting the strength back to feel like it’s just in the right spot. It certainly is (a concern) for us. He’s got such toughness and edge-setting pressure. So we’re just trying to get him where he’s feeling at his best.”


Saints place DE Anthony Spencer on injured reserve
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(2:38 pm ET) The Saints have placed defensive end Anthony Spencer on the season-ending injured reserve list, per ESPN.com.

Spencer has 33 sacks in eight NFL seasons, including 11 in 2012, when he made the Pro Bowl as a member of the Cowboys.

Steelers give WR Antonio Brown $2 million raise
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(2:14 pm ET) Thanks to some creative math, the Steelers were able to give star receiver Antonio Brown a $2 million bonus for his season, per NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport. 

Brown had considered holding out this season, but reported to camp. The Steelers were able to restructure some contracts and find the extra money, and now Brown will make $8 million this season. 

Brown caught 129 passes for 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:50 pm ET) The Jets announced Tuesday they have placed tight end Jace Amaro on the season-ending injured reserve list due to a torm labrum in his shoulder, per the Daily News.

Amaro will undergo surgery later this week, according to Jets coach Todd Bowles. Amaro had four receptions for 38 yards and two touchdowns last season. 


Rams trim roster by 13 players
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:34 pm ET) The Rams reached the NFL's 75-man roster limit Tuesday with the release of 13 players, per ESPN.com, who include: OT Steven Baker, OT Travis Bond, CB Imoan Claiborne, S Jay Hughes, LB Keshaun Malone, LS Tyler Ott, K/P Michael Palardy, WR Tyler Slavin, TE Brad Smelley (waived/injured), LB Korey Toomer (waived/injured), C David Wang, WR Damian Williams (contract terminated) and DT Doug Worthington.

CB E.J. Gaines (foot) was placed on injured reserve. The Rams had previously waived/injured receiver Isiah Ferguson but he reverted to injured reserve with a torn ACL.


Bengals make eight more moves to get to 75
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(1:10 pm ET) In addition to the moves the Bengals made Monday, most notably releasing receiver Denarius Moore, the team cut seven more players to get down to the 75-man limit, per ESPN.com. 

The team released WR Desmond Lawrence, LB Nico Johnson, DT Kwame Geathers, DE Sam Montgomery, OG Chris Jasperse, TE John Peters and WR Tevin Reese

The team put FB Mark Weisman and WR Onterio McCalebb on the waived/injured list, LB Sean Porter on the reserve/PUP list and OT Cedric Ogbuehi on the reserve/non-football injury list.


Ravens place TE Dennis Pitta (hip) on Reserve-PUP list
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(12:39 pm ET) Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was placed on the team's Reserve-PUP list Tuesday, meaning the tight end could return to the roster in Week 7, per ESPN.com. 

Pitta has been limited to just seven games over the last two seasons after twice dislocating his hip, and the team wants to bring him along slowly. However, the reports suggests a midseason return in optimistic, given Pitta has not been cleared by doctors or been allowed to practice.
