The calendar has flipped to June, and that means that it’s time to start firing off statistics, lists and analysis to announce the arrival of the extended 2013 Fantasy Football draft season. And that’s the reality. Like the NFL has become a 365-day business, fantasyland has extended to a year-round entity. Sure, you put the drafts aside (most people, anyway), but the spreadsheets remain open in the background.

As I sat down to put together my list of top 25 running backs, the debates started at the top. I started my list, and it didn’t take long before it became an absolute mess. Arrows started pointing everywhere in multiple colors and names got shuffled repeatedly. I finally put it to paper and assembled the final take below. Two players I’m watching closely as we creep through the summer are Maurice Jones-Drew and Trent Richardson. Of course, there are plenty of camp battles and injuries to come, so I’ll shuffle it up as we draw closer to opening day.

So without further ado, I bring you Harmon’s 2013 Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings 1.0.
