September 5, 2020 Rank Participant 1 Christian McCaffrey, Panthers.McCaffrey logged 403 touches, 2,392 complete yards, and 19 complete touchdowns final season.All these numbers had been good for greatest within the league, and his 116 targets had been most amongst operating backs league-wide.McCaffrey is a well-balanced participant as evidenced by his 1,000-plus yards each speeding and receiving in ’20, so he’ll have the ability to produce as soon as once more a method or one other because it’s too arduous for defenses to include him.2 Saquon Barkley, Giants.Barkley’s ’20 marketing campaign was disrupted by a excessive ankle sprain that he returned from a bit early, however he nonetheless racked up over 1,000 speeding yards and carried out very properly on the finish of the season (539 yards and 5 TDs within the remaining three video games).If he stays wholesome, he ought to keep on a torrid tempo and carry out as he did throughout his rookie 12 months, when he led the NFL in scrimmage yards.3 Derrick Henry, Titans.
The 386 carries together with the postseason might scare some off a bit, however Henry is a monster runner that simply wears defenses down.The NFL’s main rusher in ’20 racked up 1,540 yards and a league-high 16 speeding touchdowns.He needs to be the focus of Tennessee’s offense as soon as once more, and if he continues to interrupt tackles (his 29 damaged tackles had been third-best within the league), he ought to publish huge numbers as soon as once more.4 Dalvin Prepare dinner, Vikings.Solely McCaffrey posted extra complete yards per recreation than Prepare dinner final season (118.1).Prepare dinner is a risk as a runner and a receiver for a staff that ran 48.Three p.c of the time, fourth-highest within the NFL.There isn’t any purpose to count on that philosophy to vary, so Prepare dinner could have loads of alternatives to rack up yardage as soon as once more.And if he can keep wholesome for a full 16-game slate for the primary time, he may very well be a real stud in Minnesota.
5 Nick Chubb, Browns.He had the second-most speeding yards within the league final season with 1,494, and he tied for probably the most damaged tackles with 32.
His offensive line additionally acquired some main upgrades on the sort out place in Jedrick Wills and Jack Conklin.If the blocking improves and the passing recreation turns into extra environment friendly, Chubb ought to rack up a ton of yards.
He would qualify as one of many most secure picks if not for the presence of Kareem Hunt as a third-down again and potential TD vulture.6 Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys.You may’t go mistaken with Elliott.He has averaged 24.Three touches per recreation over the course of his profession and has averaged 2,007 complete yards and 14 touchdowns per 16 video games.Sufficient mentioned.
7 Josh Jacobs, Raiders.Jacobs racked up 1,150 speeding yards as a rookie regardless of taking part in simply 13 video games.His 683 yards after contact, good for fifth greatest within the league, communicate to his distinctive mixture of velocity and energy.
Jacobs runs behind an ideal offensive line and all indications are that the Raiders need to get him extra touches as a receiver this season.He needs to be an RB1 for fairly some time in normal fantasy codecs.8 Alvin Kamara, Saints.Kamara is coming off his worst 12 months as a professional in ’19, but he nonetheless racked up 1,330 yards and 6 touchdowns.And he put up that manufacturing whereas coping with knee, ankle, and again accidents.These maladies drop his worth a bit of, but when he begins the season wholesome, he may simply be a top-five RB in ’20, particularly if he continues to interrupt a sort out each 5.9 carries, greatest within the NFL final season.9 Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Chiefs.
The rookie is a participant on the rise after Damien Williams’ choose out.With comparatively little competitors, the first-round decide will get an opportunity to win the beginning job and get a stable share of touches in a dynamic offense.After averaging 6.6 yards per carry and racking up 55 catches in LSU’s dynamic offense, Edwards-Helaire needs to be a pure slot in Kansas Metropolis, and groups will not have the ability to deal with him as a result of presence of Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce.10 Aaron Jones, Packers.Jones tied Henry for the speeding TDs lead in ’20 with 16 and had 19 complete TDs which matched McCaffrey’s high-water mark.
The return of a wholesome Jamaal Williams and the choice of AJ Dillon might eat into his worth a bit, however Jones proved to be one in every of Inexperienced Bay’s greatest red-zone weapons final 12 months and they need to preserve utilizing him in that function it doesn’t matter what.11 Kenyan Drake, Cardinals.
Drake will get an opportunity to run behind a Cardinals line that created the third-most yards earlier than contact in ’19.Drake logged 413 yards and 7 touchdowns in his remaining three video games of the season with the staff.He will not proceed at that torrid a clip, however he ought to nonetheless be a low-end RB1/high-end RB2.12 Joe Mixon, Bengals.It took Mixon a lengthy time to get going final 12 months, as he did not get a speeding landing till Week 10.With Joe Burrow now in Cincinnati, groups will not have the ability to stack the field towards him, so he ought to have an opportunity to start out faster, however given how dangerous the Bengals’ offensive line is, Mixon has to stay within the RB2 vary.
13 Austin Ekeler, Chargers.Ekeler was the second-best pass-catching operating again within the NFL behind solely McCaffrey final 12 months.He had 993 receiving yards final season and eight touchdowns within the air for the Chargers and will have an opportunity to proceed to catch passes out of the backfield.The one query is whether or not he’ll tackle a much bigger function between the tackles after splitting time with Melvin Gordon final season and getting 132 carries.14 Chris Carson, Seahawks.Carson is without doubt one of the most constant gamers in fantasy.
He logged at the very least 16 touches in 13 of the 15 video games he performed final season.The Seahawks run the ball 46.7 p.c of the time, sixth most within the league, so Carson ought to get a bulk of the carries offered that he has correctly healed from a hip fracture that he suffered on the finish of the common season.
15 Miles Sanders, Eagles.Jordan Howard acquired numerous work for the Eagles early within the season, however Sanders, a second-round decide, ultimately took over the lead-back duties in Philadelphia.His prowess as a receiver was on show, as he logged 50 catches for 509 yards and three touchdowns, and his 4.6 yards per carry was tied for 14th-best within the NFL.If he can deal with a much bigger workload and enhance within the red-zone (solely two TDs on six carries contained in the 5) he needs to be an ideal RB2, however Boston Scott and different Eagles’ RBs will doubtless play greater than fantasy house owners’ count on.16 Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers.Fournette figures to be Tampa’s lead again and get ample touches and landing alternatives.His receiving stats may actually drop off after his breakout final 12 months, however he is nonetheless a stable guess for yards on the bottom.
17 Le’Veon Bell, Jets.Fantasy house owners who’ve chosen Bell the previous two years have been irked by his efficiency.In ’18, he held out for the entire 12 months.Final 12 months, he averaged a paltry 3.2 yards per carry and had simply 4 complete touchdowns.Regardless of that, Bell nonetheless had over 300 touches final 12 months and will see numerous quantity once more with the Jets.An improved offensive line and a wholesome Sam Darnold may even assist open up more room for him to make performs within the Huge Apple.18 Mark Ingram, Ravens.
Ingram is a key cog within the NFL’s greatest speeding offense and will proceed to play a job for the squad.He had 40 red-zone carries final 12 months and 15 complete touchdowns as a key weapon out of the backfield.
So, why does he are available in at 20? Properly, the retirement of Marshal Yanda will impression the Ravens’ blocking, and JK Dobbins was drafted within the second spherical because the 30-year-old Ingram’s eventual successor.Plus, Lamar Jackson, Dobbins, and Gus Edwards may vulture TDs from Ingram.The veteran remains to be a stable decide, however these elements decrease his potential to that of a mid-tier RB2.19 James Conner, Steelers.Conner struggled final season as he handled accidents as a part of an ineffective Steelers offense.He ought to have extra operating room than the 571 yards earlier than contact his line generated final 12 months with Ben Roethlisberger slated to return to the lineup, however the Steelers have a number of younger backs that might vulture touches from him (Benny Snell, Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Samuels).
But when Conner returns to his ’19 kind when he racked up almost 1,000 speeding yards and 12 touchdowns in a Professional Bowl 12 months, he needs to be a stable funding.20 Todd Gurley, Falcons.
The excellent news: Gurley has racked up a whopping 54 touchdowns over the course of the previous three years.The dangerous information: He is coping with knee issues and should not have the ability to deal with a full workload transferring ahead.Gurley averaged simply 3.Eight yards per carry final 12 months, and that does not determine to enhance rather a lot in Atlanta.That mentioned, the Falcons will discover the best way to greatest make the most of him within the crimson zone, and the team-leading 20 red-zone carries that went to Devonta Freeman final 12 months will nearly definitely all go to Gurley.
21 David Johnson, Texans.Johnson and Gurley mark back-to-back former No.1 total fantasy picks that are actually members of the fringe-RB2 group.Johnson will get an opportunity to rehab his profession in Houston after a number of ineffective, injury-plagued seasons in Arizona.He confirmed in ’18 that he can nonetheless be a TD risk even when he lacks explosiveness out of the backfield, however his 3.6 ypc common over the previous three years does not encourage numerous hope if the scores do not materialize.22 Devin Singletary, Payments.
Singletary posted robust numbers as a rookie, averaging 5.1 yards per carry and totaling 775 speeding yards and two touchdowns in 12 video games.He may enhance significantly this season with out Frank Gore vulturing red-zone carries from him.Singletary had simply 18 red-zone carries in comparison with Gore’s 25 final 12 months.If Singletary takes on a bulk of these carries, he will definitely rack up some extra touchdowns and proceed to operate as a stable receiver.23 Cam Akers, Rams.Save for Edwards-Helaire, no rookie again ought to have a clearer path to a beginning job than Akers.
The second-round decide was the Rams’ first choice of the draft and is ready to interchange Gurley because the long-term starter.Gurley had the third-most red-zone carries within the league final 12 months at 51, so Akers may tackle a majority of these and be set as much as rating fairly a bit early throughout his NFL profession.He’ll need to take care of Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown for touches, although.24 David Montgomery, Bears.
The No.1 factor to love about Montgomery is his quantity.He had 242 carries as a rookie, tied for 13th most, regardless of solely beginning half of Chicago’s 16 video games.Montgomery additionally had the sixth-most carries contained in the 5 (14), which led to 5 touchdowns.He may not be probably the most explosive again, but when he can enhance as a goal-line hammer, his quantity and landing upside will make him an RB2 as soon as he returns from his early-season groin harm.
25 JK Dobbins, Ravens.Like Akers, Dobbins was a second-round decide in the latest NFL draft.The sixth-place finisher within the Heisman voting toted the rock 301 instances for two,003 yards and 21 touchdowns throughout his remaining school season.He has the upside of a high-end RB2 and could be increased on this listing if not for the presence of Mark Ingram.For now, Dobbins is a stable funding who may ultimately make extra of an impression later within the season.26 Raheem Mostert, 49ers.In his first 4 seasons mixed, Mostert had 322 complete yards and one landing.
Final 12 months, he racked up 772 yards and eight touchdowns with a league-best (amongst RBs) 5.6 yards per carry.After a robust efficiency through the 49ers’ Tremendous Bowl run, Mostert will doubtless be entrusted because the 49ers’ high again (even when he does not begin video games).That mentioned, the presence of Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon, two highly-paid RBs, and Kyle Shanahan’s willingness to combine up his RB rotation will cap Mostert’s ceiling.27 Jonathan Taylor, Colts.Throughout his school days, Taylor averaged 308 carries for two,058 speeding yards and 16.7 touchdowns per 12 months for Wisconsin.Now, he’ll be operating behind the league’s greatest offensive line, and, if not for the presence of Marlon Mack, would doubtless be a top-10 fantasy again.However so long as Mack is round to separate carries, they will each be flex performs.28 Phillip Lindsay, Broncos.
If not for the Broncos’ determination to signal Melvin Gordon, Lindsay could be increased on this listing.The previous undrafted free agent out of Colorado has averaged 1,024 yards and eight TDs on 4.9 yards per carry in his two NFL seasons.And regardless of his smaller body, he nonetheless had 5 scores from contained in the five-yard line final 12 months.Even when he splits touches with Gordon, Lindsay will nonetheless be a priceless flex play and will retain his playmaking capacity.29 D’Andre Swift, Lions.
Swift, one more second-round rookie at operating again, averaged 6.6 yards per carry at Georgia regardless of taking part in towards glorious SEC defenses.He ought to ultimately turn into the lead again in Detroit however the presence of Kerryon Johnson will render him a versatile play presently.But when Johnson continues to have points staying wholesome, Swift may work his manner into the fringe-RB1 territory.Think about him a possible growth decide with a flex ground in the event you draft him.30 Antonio Gibson, Washington.
Washington spent a third-round decide (66th total) on Gibson, so clearly, they like one thing about him.Gibson was a hybrid again/receiver at Memphis and will match into the pass-catching again function properly for Washington.
Scott Turner likes to get his RBs the ball out of the backfield, and Gibson appears primed to be the highest receiving possibility in that regard.The one concern with Gibson? He carried the ball simply 33 instances complete throughout his school profession, so it might take time for him to get used to operating between the tackles.31 Marlon Mack, Colts.
As talked about earlier, Jonathan Taylor will siphon off some touches from Mack, however Mack has totaled 18 touchdowns the previous two seasons and will retain a outstanding red-zone function after totaling eight speeding TDs contained in the 20.
He may very well be an RB2 to start out the 12 months however will regularly lose touches to Taylor and turn into a flex play.32 Tevin Coleman, 49ers.Kyle Shanahan likes to combine up his backs, and Coleman has numerous expertise in Shanahan’s offense.The previous Falcon solely logged 544 speeding yards throughout his first season in San Francisco, however he has by no means averaged beneath 4.Zero yards per carry and has 35 complete touchdowns over the previous 4 years.
If Mostert’s glorious ’19 marketing campaign seems to be a flash within the pan, Coleman may find yourself being an RB2.33 Kareem Hunt, Browns.Hunt performed in simply eight video games final 12 months due to a half-season suspension, however he regarded good on the sector in Cleveland.If not for the presence of Nick Chubb, Hunt could be a fringe-RB1.As an alternative, he is available in as a high handcuff and flex play due to his receiving capacity.
In his eight video games, Hunt was focused 44 instances.Extrapolate that to a 16-game season and he’d get 88 targets, seventh-most within the NFL.As such, Hunt has notably extra worth in PPR, however he is nonetheless value taking within the first half of fantasy drafts.34 Melvin Gordon, Broncos.By signing with the Broncos, Gordon has entered what may very well be a irritating timeshare with Phillip Lindsay.It does not assist Gordon’s trigger that he averaged solely 3.Eight yards per carry final season and seven.Zero yards per reception, the bottom totals since his rookie 12 months.Was Gordon impacted by his holdout (which precipitated him to overlook 4 video games) or is he slowing down a bit? It is extra doubtless the previous, however let another person overdraft him, as he is the 19th RB off the board in response to Fantasy Professionals’ ADP.
He does determine to have extra worth in PPR leagues, although.35 Sony Michel, Patriots.Michel toted the rock 247 instances in ’19, which was tied for ninth most within the league.Some nagging accidents slowed him down and assist to elucidate why he solely logged 3.7 yards per try.
Michel remains to be coping with the lingering results of a foot harm and will miss time this season, in order that’s why he is ranked as a low-level flex play.He may slide even additional if he continues to overlook time attributable to harm.36 Latavius Murray, Saints.Within the two video games that Alvin Kamara missed with an harm final season, Murray logged 307 complete yards and 4 touchdowns, good for a mean of 27.35 fantasy factors per recreation.
He will not be almost as productive when Kamara performs, however he had simply three fewer red-zone carries than Kamara, so in the appropriate matchup, he generally is a TD-dependent flex play.37 Zack Moss, Payments.
Moss totaled just below 3,000 complete yards and 29 touchdowns throughout his remaining two seasons at Utah.The Payments favored him sufficient to select him within the third spherical of the 2020 NFL Draft, however he is caught behind one other proficient third-round decide, Devin Singletary.Perhaps Moss will turn into related as a goal-line hammer, however for now, he is only a handcuff to observe.38 Darrel Williams, Chiefs.It seems like Williams can be CEH’s high backup, and we all know how explosive this offense is.He may solely be one harm away from enormous contributions.
39 Kerryon Johnson, Lions.By two years with the Lions, Johnson has missed 14 complete video games.Now, he has to compete with D’Andre Swift for enjoying time.Maybe if Johnson can return to the rookie-year kind that noticed him common 5.Four yards per carry, he’ll have an opportunity to try this.However for now, he is only a borderline flex play and high backup possibility.40 Jordan Howard, Dolphins.
Howard has at all times been a landing risk and has averaged eight TDs per 12 months over his four-year profession.Final 12 months, he completed with 5 TDs contained in the five-yard line on eight carries.
If he receives greater than 38 p.c of the carries contained in the 5, as he did in Philadelphia, he ought to have an opportunity at numerous touchdowns, however he is taking part in behind a worse O-Line and with a worse offense, so he is extra of a TD-dependent flex play.41 Matt Breida, Dolphins.Breida is Howard’s major competitors for touches with the Dolphins.Breida is extra explosive than Howard and has averaged 5.Zero yards per carry throughout his three-year NFL profession.Breida has additionally had persistent ankle accidents and should have extra hassle outdoors of Kyle Shanahan’s offense.Till a favourite emerges within the Dolphins’ pecking order, each ought to solely be matchup-based flex performs.
42 Darrell Henderson, Rams.Henderson had a disappointing rookie marketing campaign and located himself behind Todd Gurley and Malcolm Brown on the depth chart for a lot of the season.Cam Akers changed Gurley this offseason, so Henderson wants to indicate enchancment in an effort to get extra carries.
With out preseason video games, it will be arduous to inform if that has occurred, however he has extra upside than Brown at this stage in his profession.43 Alexander Mattison, Vikings.For those who’re trying to personal a handcuff that might turn into an RB1, Mattison needs to be your man.
Dalvin Prepare dinner has by no means performed a full 16-game slate, and as a rookie, Mattison carried out very properly in restricted motion.On 100 carries, he produced 462 yards and broke a sort out each 9.1 carries, eighth greatest within the league.If Prepare dinner is wholesome, the amount will not be there for Mattison.But when he will get banged up, Mattison will vault into the highest 20 amongst RBs.
44 James White, Patriots.White is normally extra priceless in PPR codecs and has logged a mean of 99 targets, 72 receptions, 623 receiving yards, and 5 TDs per 16 video games over the previous 4 years.That mentioned, due to the Patriots’ lack of robust receiving weapons and the questionable well being of Sony Michel, White has extra upside than common in normal codecs even when he will not deal with that many carries.45 Tarik Cohen, Bears.Much like White, Cohen is without doubt one of the NFL’s greatest pass-catching backs.Final 12 months, he was focused 104 instances, good for third most amongst RBs.
He caught 79 passes however turned them into simply 456 yards as groups keyed in on him out of the backfield because of Chicago’s woeful offense.Cohen figures to play a job as a receiving again once more, however his upside in normal is proscribed by the presence of David Montgomery and the truth that the 5-6 Cohen has by no means dealt with greater than 99 carries in a single season.
46 Duke Johnson, Texans.Throughout his first season with the Texans, Johnson produced precisely 410 speeding yards and 410 receiving yards.He had this manufacturing regardless of logging simply 127 touches on the 12 months.Johnson is a well-rounded again and has averaged 4.7 yards per carry over the previous 4 seasons.Between that and his receiving manufacturing — he has by no means had a season with fewer than 44 catches — he is a wonderful handcuff for the oft-injured David Johnson.
47 Chris Thompson, Jaguars.Thompson is without doubt one of the greatest receiving backs within the league when wholesome.The issue is that he is hardly ever wholesome.
He has missed at the very least 5 video games in every of the previous three seasons however has nonetheless averaged 41 catches for 385 yards per 12 months.He is good in PPR codecs, however his lack of carries and landing manufacturing retains him decrease down on the usual rankings.48 Boston Scott, Eagles.Doug Pederson loves to combine up his operating backs as we noticed final 12 months with Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders splitting touches.With Howard gone, Scott turns into the highest backup for Philly behind Sanders.Sanders ought to emerge because the lead again, however Scott may vulture some TDs from Sanders after scoring on all 4 of his carries from contained in the five-yard line final 12 months.49 Chase Edmonds, Cardinals.Earlier than the arrival of Kenyan Drake, Edmonds was wanting like a possible alternative for David Johnson.
He had a recreation towards the New York Giants that noticed him carry the ball 27 instances for 127 yards and three TDs.
However as soon as Drake got here to city in Week 9, Edmonds had simply two complete touches the remainder of the season.Kliff Kingsbury has been complimentary of Edmonds this offseason, so perhaps he’ll see extra motion in ’20.However he is nonetheless clearly behind Drake.50 Ryquell Armstead, Jaguars.Armstead, at the very least briefly, is the highest operating again in Jacksonville following Leonard Fournette’s launch.It stays to be seen if he’ll be priceless in that function, although.He averaged 3.1 yards per carry final 12 months however had two touchdowns by means of the air whereas averaging 10.Three yards per catch.
Beginning the season late due to being on the COVID-19 reserve listing will not assist his trigger, however so long as no different Jags’ again breaks out, Armstead may have legit worth upon his return.51 Ito Smith, Falcons.Smith had modest manufacturing as a rookie however solely performed in seven video games final 12 months for Atlanta.If wholesome, he may find yourself as the highest backup to the oft-injured Todd Gurley and will spell the veteran and rack up yardage.
Smith is an efficient sleeper possibility to focus on late in drafts, although that might change if both Brian Hill or Qadree Ollison steps up.52 Justin Jackson, Chargers.Jackson was caught behind Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon final 12 months, however he averaged 6.9 yards per carry in restricted motion.He may find yourself changing into a fantasy-relevant participant if Ekeler cannot deal with a full workload between the tackles.53 Bryce Love, Washington.Love completed second within the Heisman voting in ’17 after totaling a ridiculous 2,118 yards and 19 touchdowns on the bottom.
He regressed throughout his senior 12 months, tore his ACL, and missed his rookie season consequently.With Derrius Guice gone, he may play a job in Washington’s backfield however will first need to overtake Adrian Peterson and Antonio Gibson within the pecking order.54 Ronald Jones II, Buccaneers.Yeah, he hasn’t but lived as much as his potential as a second-round decide, however Jones rebounded from a woeful rookie 12 months in ’19.He totaled 1,033 complete yards and 6 touchdowns whereas performing properly as a receiver out of the backfield.Jones’ 23 damaged tackles final 12 months had been good for 11th within the league and are indicative of a robust between-the-tackles runner.
The signing of Leonard Fournette has doubtless tanked Jones’ worth, although, and he’ll match extra as a handcuff to Fournette than the rest.55 Devine Ozigbo, Jaguars.Ozigbo may very properly lead the Jaguars in speeding in Week 1 and by no means look again.He may additionally cut up coutches, do nothing, and flame out shortly.
With little monitor on the NFL degree, Ozigbo is a pure hypothesis decide who may repay merely primarily based on quantity and alternative.
56 Damien Harris, Patriots.If Sony Michel’s foot harm retains him out long-term, Harris will be the one to profit probably the most.The second-year Alabama product did not do a lot as a rookie, however that is par for the course for Invoice Belichick.
He tends to offer rookie runners a 12 months to get acclimated earlier than throwing them to the wolves.Maybe Harris can be higher served to play a job within the Patriots’ backfield after that additional growth time.57 Joshua Kelley, Chargers.The rookie put up back-to-back 1,000-plus-yard, 12-touchdown seasons at UCLA.The Chargers have Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson in entrance of him, but when Kelley impresses, there can be room to get him some carries.He is a sleeper to observe and a possible goal in deeper drafts and dynasty codecs.58 Tony Pollard, Cowboys.Pollard racked up 455 yards and two touchdowns on simply 86 carries final 12 months for the Cowboys.
He is the most effective true handcuffs to personal due to Dallas’ glorious offensive line play.59 James Robinson, Jaguars.The compact rookie out of Illiinois State tore up the FCS in school, and he may get a much bigger function than anticipated early on with Jacksonville because of Ryquell Armstead’s COVID-19 points.Like Ozigbo, Robinson may take the job and run with it if given the chance, however he is a pure lotto ticket at nearly any level within the draft.
60 Malcolm Brown, Rams.Brown is coming into his sixth season with the Rams and has been a stable backup for the squad.He had a career-high 5 touchdowns final season, however he has by no means dealt with greater than 72 touches in a single season.Except Cam Akers or Darrell Henderson struggles, he in all probability should depend on TDs to do most of his injury.61
Carlos Hyde, Seahawks .Hyde ran for over 1,000 yards final 12 months for the Texans however does not determine to have the identical alternative in Seattle, as he’ll be behind Chris Carson and, when wholesome, Rashaad Penny.
62 Jamaal Williams, Packers.Misplaced in Aaron Jones’ robust season and the drafting of AJ Dillon was a stable season from Williams.The third-year professional labored properly taking part in second-fiddle to Jones, and racked up 713 complete yards and 6 touchdowns in 14 video games.He carries some receiving worth as 5 of his six TDs got here by means of the air, so his worth comes extra in PPR codecs than in normal.63 Giovani Bernard, Bengals.Bernard has been round endlessly and is coming into his eighth season with the Bengals.That mentioned, he is coming off a zero-TD season and a career-low 83 touches.
He is properly behind Joe Mixon, so his solely worth comes as a handcuff.64 Nyheim Hines, Colts.
Hines has 107 catches for 745 yards and two touchdowns in two seasons with the Colts.
He ought to proceed to be a stable pass-catcher, however he does not carry numerous worth in normal codecs since he is behind Jonathan Taylor and Marlon Mack on the depth chart.65 Jerick McKinnon, 49ers.Bear in mind this man? He signed a big-money cope with the 49ers two years in the past however has but to play for them.If wholesome, maybe he’ll lastly dwell as much as that contract, however it’s arduous to belief him with out seeing him on the sector for a number of years and due to the efficiency of Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman in his absence.66 AJ Dillon, Packers.Dillon is constructed like a brick home and had a whopping 40 complete TDs throughout his three-year school profession.
He does not do a lot as a pass-catcher, however he needs to be the long run between the tackles for the Packers.First although, he’ll must beat Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in competitors.That is no straightforward job throughout a shortened offseason.67 Darrynton Evans, Titans.Derrick Henry had 409 complete touches final season and postseason.
That’s rather a lot of touches.
If the Titans teaching employees needs to lower Henry’s workload or if he will get dinged up, Evans, who had 1,678 yards and 23 TDs in his remaining collegiate season, may very well be in for some additional carries.68 Adrian Peterson, Free Agent.Peterson was launched forward of reduce day.He needs to maintain taking part in, however doubtless will solely discover a backup function at greatest.
69 Darwin Thompson, Chiefs.We nonetheless love Thompson as a sleeper, however it seems like he may begin the season third on the depth chart.
70 La’Mical Perine, Jets.Le’Veon Bell is the highest canine within the Jets’ backfield but when he misses time, Perine appears prone to be the highest man to profit versus the 37-year-old Frank Gore.Perine did not publish enormous numbers at Florida, however he logged 11 touchdowns and 40 catches throughout his remaining season with the Gators.71 Lynn Bowden Jr., Raiders.Bowden, a third-round decide by the Raiders, was a do-it-all participant at Kentucky and noticed motion at quarterback and receiver.For Las Vegas, he’ll be taking part in operating again and will slide in because the No.
2 again for the staff.
Josh Jacobs will deal with a bulk of the carries however Bowden may see motion as a receiver.The presence of Devontae Booker, Jalen Richard, and Theo Riddick might restrict his total upside, however he is nonetheless the Raiders’ high handcuff in normal codecs.72 Benny Snell Jr., Steelers.
Snell had his share of points as a rookie, however that was as a result of groups had been so geared as much as cease the run with Mason Rudolph and Duck Hodges taking part in quarterback.Snell’s greater drawback is that he is behind James Conner within the rotation and should battle Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Samuels for touches.
73 Dion Lewis, Giants.Lewis is a well-liked title in fantasy and former high handcuff, however now he is only a middling handcuff.
If Saquon Barkley goes down, he’ll have worth.If not, he’ll put up numbers much like the 373 yards and one rating he logged final 12 months.That is not very thrilling.74 Justice Hill, Ravens.Hill was alleged to be the inheritor obvious to Mark Ingram, however he struggled as a rookie, logging a 3.9 yards per carry common regardless of taking part in behind an elite O-Line and performed simply 17 p.c of the snaps.The choice of JK Dobbins pushes Hill additional down the depth chart and except he makes a giant leap, he will not do a lot in his second season.75 Devontae Booker, Raiders.
The Raiders signed Booker to a one-year deal this offseason after he fell out of favor in Denver.Booker has principally been a receiver throughout his profession however can do some bit between the tackles.He will not be an possibility for house owners except Josh Jacobs will get harm (and even then, he will not be).
76 Frank Gore, Jets.Gore can nonetheless vulture TDs with the most effective of them, however it’s arduous to belief him at age 37 when he is behind Le’Veon Bell.
Scoop him on the waiver wire if he overtakes Bell, however you do not have to consider drafting him, barring an harm.77 Royce Freeman, Broncos.Freeman’s days as a landing vulture could also be over.He will not see 24 red-zone carries like he did final 12 months because of Denver’s addition of Melvin Gordon.He is merely a possible waiver-wire pickup ought to Lindsay or Gordon get harm.
78 Rashaad Penny, Seahawks .Penny could be a way more engaging handcuff if he wasn’t coming off an ACL tear that might sideline him to start out the season – he is anticipated to overlook the primary six weeks of 2020 after being positioned on the energetic/PUP listing.At instances in ’19, it regarded like he was poised to take over for Chris Carson, and his profession yards per carry common of 5.Three is great.He can nonetheless be focused in drafts, particularly in case your league has an IR spot, however his unknown timetable for return hurts his total worth.79 Jalen Richard, Raiders.
