What does RB2 mean in Fantasy Football?

Second starting fantasy running back

In the world of fantasy football, RB2 is a term that represents your team’s second main running back. The use of this term is exclusive to leagues that permit two or more RBs to start in the team’s lineup.

A typical fantasy football league’s starting lineup includes 1 QB, 2 RBs (RB1 and RB2), 3 WRs or 2 WRs with a flex position, 1 TE, 1 K, as well as a team defense and special teams. It’s worth noting that the RB1 and RB2 spots usually score the highest points in leagues that use standard scoring systems.

However, in PPR (Points Per Reception) leagues, WR positions gain increased importance as each catch translates to a point. It’s important to remember though that RB positions can also catch balls, which helps them maintain their value in PPR leagues.
