Running Backs Age 29 or Older

The average age of running backs in NFL is 25.3. The following 22 running backs will be 29 or older on opening day. Youth is a factor in long-term fantasy football performance. Older players are less valuable than normal in keeper and dynasty leagues. Older players with more than 200 rushing attempts last year could be at a higher risk for injury.
