Continuing our very successful countdowns, we’ll be focusing on THE most important position in fantasy football, the running backs. Most leagues you’ll play in will require two backs with a flex player option.

Depending on whether or not you’re in a PPR (Points Per Reception) league, you’ll likely want to stick with starting three running backs each week. This strategy has been very successful for me through out my Fantasy Football Career (yes I consider it a career) and I recommend it to those of you who are either first year players, or, are looking to try something different to achieve maximum success.

One of our brilliant staff writers, Chad Brewster, has already counted down three different key areas of fantasy football, which you can check out with the links below.

Getting back to the running backs, having a good stable is, in my opinion, the difference between having a good FF team to having a great FF team. Today, I’ll be giving you my top ten running backs for 2014.

We’ll be focusing on just the Elites, as we’ll be bringing all the best sleeper picks later on this preseason. The following ten running backs listed should be the ones you target most in your upcoming drafts.
