Week 2 was not kind to the running back position, so fantasy football owners were probably relieved to see Week 3 pass with fewer injuries. Thanks to a healthier week, fantasy owners won't lose as many options, though there will still be some concerns about the availability (or lack thereof) of Raheem Mostert (knee), Phillip Lindsay (toe), and Cam Akers (ribs) heading into this week. There were also potential two key injuries in Week 3 -- one of which impacts our Week 4 fantasy PPR RB rankings more than our standard set.

NFL Week 2 Weather Updates: Rain, wind could affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions

  NFL Week 2 Weather Updates: Rain, wind could affect fantasy start 'em, sit 'em decisions Rain and wind are in the forecast for a few games this week, but it looks like fantasy football owners will get off easy. With an assist from meteorologist Kevin Roth at RotoGrinders, we look at the most worrisome Week 2 NFL weather forecasts.Before we get into the forecasts, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS, and gambling decisions), don't hesitate to reach out to Rotogrinders' meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) or check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders.

The PPR rankings lost a regularly featured player in Tarik Cohen to what looks like a season-ending ACL injury. In his absence, David Montgomery figures to get a small boost in PPR formats. Chicago's new handcuff, Cordarrelle Patterson, is a converted receiver and is still listed as a WR by most fantasy football sites, so that's why he's not listed here. In short, there's no real replacement at the RB position for Cohen because of this.

Luckily, the breakups of some committees are making a big difference for RB-needy owners. Darrell Henderson appears to be the top running back and pass-catching back for the Rams, at least while Akers is out. Meanwhile, Devin Singletary should be the Bills' top receiver over Zack Moss once the latter player returns from a toe injury. And new Panthers starter Mike Davis appears to be the clear-cut lead back for the Panthers. That at least gives us some more clarity as fantasy owners search for viable RB2 and flex options.

Per usual, fantasy owners should be looking to attack some of the weaker matchups on the slate. The Bills (vs. Raiders), Dolphins (vs. Seahawks), and Cardinals (vs. Panthers) all have good matchups, so that means Singletary, Moss (if healthy), and Myles Gaskin can be trusted in key start 'em, sit 'em decisions while Kenyan Drake will be an RB1 this week. Gaskin is notably more valuable in PPR formats.

Meanwhile, the Chargers (@ Buccaneers) have a tough matchup so it may be a good time to sit the carry-dependent Joshua Kelley, provided that you have another solid flex option available. Chris Carson's late-game injury could create a pair of PPR sleepers in Seattle, as Carlos Hyde would likely handle most of the between-the-tackles running and Travis Homer could have some PPR appeal against the Dolphins.

Reminder: As always, we expect to make plenty of changes to these RB PPR rankings throughout the week, so check back for updates.
