A dual threat at the running back position in the NFL is critical in the success of a team as the season progresses.
Those RBs are equally valuable for fantasy football owners — and can help prop players in Virginia sports betting.
As we move into the typical fantasy playoffs period for most leagues, BetVirginia.com utilized FantasyData.com to compile the current fantasy rankings of running backs after Week 13 in a standard points per reception (PPR) league and then found the average draft position rankings for a standard PPR league prior to the season. Running backs were only included if they were in the Top 60 in original ADP rankings.

The Commanders Super Bowl odds are +100000, which is tied with six other teams for the worst in the NFL.
Robinson Provides Hope for Washington
Washington second-year running back Brian Robinson, Jr. ranked fourth on the fantasy running backs list, jumping a solid 27 spots in the ranking, from 34th at the start of the season to seventh. He is third on the list in fantasy points per game at 14.1.
Miami running back Raheem Mostert tops the list with a 45-spot jump from 47th (start) to second (current) with 17.9 fantasy points per game. Robinson has been a solid contributor to Washington's backfield this season with 160 carries for 664 yards (4.2 per carry) and five touchdowns. On the receiving side, he has 29 receptions for 326 yards (11.2 yards per catch) with three TDs.
However, he has not rushed for 100 or more yards yet in a game this season and has not had a rush TD since a 20-17 road win at the New England Patriots on Nov. 5 (the team’s last victory). His last TD reception came in a 29-26 road loss at the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 2, where he had a season-high 119-yard performance on six receptions with a 51-yard score.
The Commanders (4-9) are off this week and will return to action at the Los Angeles Rams at 4:05 p.m., Dec. 17 (CBS). Virginia betting apps list San Francisco as the Super Bowl favorite at +300. Kansas City is second at +500.
