Fantasy Football Outlook Rookie RBs

19 Oct 2017 à 05:54am

The first-round running backdrought ended bothemphatically plus typical fashion, with Jeff Fisher taking Todd Gurley 10th overall on the 2015 NFL Draft.

If a normal Gurleyplays to his potential,then it really is challenging to criticize Fisher or fantasy owners who takeGurley using own early pick. John Riggins Jersey Meanwhile, a few other rookies from that year'scla s have a chance to emerge as startable fantasy running backs.


This can be a head start on examiningopportunity for touches and price amongthetoprookie running backs.

Workload already theirs

Todd Gurley, Rams

Zac Stacy may be tradedand Tre Mason is theplaceholder until Gurley's knee recovers. Gurley should maintain his lead in dynasty average draft position, but closing the redraft gap to Melvin Gordonis determined by acquiring a clean bill of health by Week 1. Preseason snaps that showGurley in pre-injury form would likely vault himahead.

Fisher's approach tomanaging Gurley's DJ Williams Jersey workload willset the ceilingfor September and October, where we'll probably get a snap limit andheavy dose of Mason. Gurley owners will hope this steptakes devote August. St. Louis also drafted four much needed offensive linemen, and that run offensewill depend ona young line jelling together and finding starters by fire.

PPR intrigue

David Johnson, Cardinals

Johnson nearly joined the above category, but I am prepared to foresake Andre Ellington since the Cardinals' alpha(-ish) back. Yes, Ellington has proven injury-prone, and last season wasn't pretty. However, Ellington's injured-from-the-start '14 doesn't not erase the '13, understanding that prior form would earn him another200-225 touches. What bodes well for Johnson stands out as the very real po sibility Ellington goes down,and Johnson's versatility as a general runner and pa s-catcher createsa relatively high floor in sharing the backfield. The dynamic talent alone puts Johnson well preceding Stepfan Taylor, Kerwynn Williams andMarion Grice.

Shawn Lauvao Jersey Ameer Abdullah, Lions

Abdullah claims the fruitfulReggie Bush spot in this particular offense and may also deal similar numbers, making her good fantasy roster depth and a solid RB2/flex fill-inwhen you have a pinch. The since-departed Bush lost one step in '14afterseeing76 targets and 504 receiving yards in '13. Bush also added223 carries that year, but Joique Bellhas since gained more prominenceand likely stillblocks Abdullah in the 250-plus touch threshold you need on a top-20 back. Abdullah should at the very least dominate the share TheoRiddick stood to gainand influence negotiations as Bell hits his contract year in '16.

Matt Jones, Redskins

Roy Helu Jr. finished '14 fifthamong running backs in yards after catch, manufacturing this largely from catching pa ses along the collection of scrimmage and chargingdirectly forward. Morris's scant utilized this regard 12.3 catchesperseason isa response to the limited he needs offer on pa sdowns.Jones only caught 11 pa ses in the final year at Florida, and Washington will hope the crna can hone thosereceiving skills coupled with theproven abilities in pa s protection, which surely played a role in thatpick. The third-round price suggests Jones will immediatelyslotin for third-and-long.

Straight handcuff status

Jay Ajayi, Dolphins: Dolphins' starterLamar Miller has added weight this offseason, however that method of fluctuation has got to worry any person who bought into Montee Ball this past year.

Jeremy Langford, Bears:Langford offers much more speed and power than incumbent handcuff Ka';Deem Carey, and Matt Forte is nearly here off two straight Matt Hazel Jersey 360-plus touch seasons.

Javorius Allen, Ravens: Bernard Pierce left for Jacksonville, and Allen battles for the change-of-pace role supportingJustin Forsett, who has to follow on the first workhorse season of his career as they turns 30.

A bit toomurkyfor now

Cameron Artis-Payne, Panthers: Carolina lists five running backs and Mike Tolbert on roster, along with the wealth usually gets spread when Jonathan Stewart quickly scans the blogosphere.

Mike Davis, 49ers: Is made with a similar style to incumbentCarlos Hyde and can loseout on change-of-pacecarries toKendall Hunter andBush.

Karlos Williams, Bills: Anticipate a run-heavy approach because of the rough QB options andRex Ryan with the reins, but LeSean McCoy just signed big dollars to move the veteran stable of Fred Jackson, Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown.

Josh Robinson, Colts: The bruising SEC back isintriguing in dynasty leagues andcould getgoal-line work, but Frank Gore still has thesavvy for this role and Bashaud Breeland Jersey hasn't mi sed a video game since '10.
