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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"That's the way we look at it. I know that Terrelle will bring that to the table. We're looking forward to that. I'm looking forward to just being around him and getting out there. I know that our locker room definitely became more athletic with him. He can do a lot of great things."

Ankle injury hampered Chris Givens most of last season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:36 am ET) Rams receiver Chris Givens didn't use it as an excuse, but conceded a nagging ankle injury bothered him most of last season, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Givens had zero touchdown catches after an impressive rookie year in which he caught three scoring passes and produced a reception of 50 or more yards in five straight games.

"It’s been the longest offseason of my life,” Givens said at the start of the offseason conditioning program. "It’s just a constant reminder every day of what I didn’t accomplish — all because I got in my own way. So I’ve been waiting for this day for the longest (time)."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:17 am ET) Bills quarterback EJ Manuel, who dealt with injuries and inconsistency as a rookie, told the Associated Press he's ready to take a big step forward. "I definitely agree there's a lot out there for myself as a quarterback to get better," he said at the team's voluntary conditioning program. "I had some success. And I had some bad games as well. It's obvious."

Manuel said he's not limited in any way by last year's knee injuries and that he feels better prepared for the 2014 season.

"I'm eager about it. I'm excited," he said. "I know there is a lot of area for me to grow. That's why I took these last four months to allow that growth."


Sean Weatherspoon pumped about Falcons' additions
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon recorded 211 tackles and seven sacks in 2011-12 before getting 38 stops and no sacks in an injury-plagued 2013 season. Weatherspoon, 26, told ESPN.com that the team's offseason moves, especially the signing of nose tackle Paul Soliai, will make his job a lot easier.

"Bringing in somebody of that caliber, I've seen him over the years and the way he's been playing,'' Weatherspoon said of Soliai. "He's a big guy and real big for run-stopping. He'll whip up on the center, and that's the apex of the offense. So I think that's something that can be great.

"We signed all our defensive tackles back from last year [Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters, Peria Jerry]. Bringing those three guys back along with [Soliai] and bringing a big guy on the outside in [defensive end] Tyson Jackson ... they made some moves, man. It's definitely saying that we're active and we want to turn things around."
