Things calmed down for RBs in Week 2 after a wild Week 1, and here's where every Fantasy relevant ranks for the rest of the season.

Week 1 was a wild one at the RB position -- Derrick Henry, Ezekiel Elliott, Saquon Barkley, Najee Harris, Aaron Jones, and James Robinson all finished outside of the top 25 at the RB position, while Jamaal Williams and Melvin Gordon finished inside the top five.

The surprises didn't stop there; Austin Ekeler didn't have a single target! The Texans fed Mark Ingram 26 carries! David Montgomery ran all over a vaunted Rams defense, and on the other side of the ball, Darrell Henderson played nearly every snap. Week 1 was certainly a strange one, and there were more surprises at the RB position than any other.

But in Week 2, things calmed down quite a bit at the RB position. Instead, there were major changes to my rest of season WR rankings after evaluating all of the things we learned in Week 2. Here's where I'm ranking each RB going forward, given the data we have through two weeks.
