With the opening of NFL training camps still more than a month away, the ASL staff team has put together their top 50 RB draft ranking. See top-20 QBs or top-30 rookies.

1. David Johnson - Arizona Cardinals

Brian MurphyTalent plus opportunity minus major injury concerns equals David Johnson.

John Adams: Cards RB David Johnson is head and shoulders above his peers, a tier unto himself, with the possible exception of Le’Veon Bell. But Bell is banged up all the time and Johnson has been an every down workhouse who pounds the ball and plays the role of outlet receiver with equal explosiveness.

Josh Rabbitt: Sorry, anyone who doesn't have David Johnson #1 right now is just wrong. Even in non PPR leagues, his catches give him an added threat to huge yardage totals. 2,500 combined yards is possible for him.

Levi Andrew: #1 RB last year. #2 in my rankings. He is Arizona’s only proven weapon. They rode him hard last year. Don’t expect much less this year, but more stacked boxes. Also had 5 fumbles with 3 of them being lost.

 

2. Le’Veon Bell - Pittsburgh Steelers

Brian MurphyI believe Bell is the best all-around back in the NFL. The only reason why I have him listed at No. 2 instead of No. 1 is he has had more injuries than David Johnson. Bell is currently recovering from offseason groin surgery.

John Adams: Le’Veon Bell is the second best running back in the league when he’s actually on the field. But between injuries and suspensions, he’s hard to count on week in and week out. Bell underwent groin surgery in March and has already dealt with a laundry list of knee and foot injuries. He is expected back some time before the NFL season kicks off.

Josh Rabbitt: A better all around back than Zeke, the problem of course is if he can stay healthy or not.  I'm willing to risk it.

Levi Andrew: Bell is one of the best bell cow backs in the league. He’s only my #3 ranked RB because of injuries and contract hang ups right now. I see him playing on the tag and not worrying about his April Fools tweet. Could finish #1.

 

3. Ezekiel Elliot - Dallas Cowboys

Brian MurphyHe will make a run for the No. 1 spot if he can increase his activity as a receiver.

John Adams: Ezekiel Elliott has a very hard time staying out of trouble off the field, but his rookie season last year was off the charts. Elliott had 15 rushing scores to go along with more than 1,600 yards last season. Couple that with 32 receptions for 363 receiving yards and you can strike fantasy gold with Elliott.

Josh Rabbitt: I have concerns about Zeke. I really do. That line isn't going to be as dominating as it was last year, and I don't think he is a "special" runner.

Levi Andrew: My Number 1 RB. Great O-line that keeps getting better. A QB he’s comfortable with. Great at catching the ball, expect more touchdowns in both receiving and rushing.

 

4. LeSean McCoy - Buffalo Bills

Brian MurphyConsistently productive, the seemingly forever-young McCoy (he’s still in his 20s) is as safe as they come after the first tier of running backs is off the board.

John Adams: LeSean McCoy is excited coming into his 9th season at the prospect of playing under an offensive system that likes to plug the running back into the passing game. McCoy had a bounce back season last year amassing 13 rushing touchdowns to go with 1,267 rushing yards. He may not equal that number this season, but for fantasy purposes, he’s still an RB1.

Josh Rabbitt: Mileage on his tires is starting to make me nervous. I simply don't trust him to stay healthy and effective an entire season. Still... raw talent alone and the offense funneling through him should make this a good landing spot for him.

Levi Andrew: Rex Ryan is gone which could make this #4 ranking high at the end of the year, but maybe it will do good for him, too. You can’t have stacked boxes with Tyrod and Watkins there either. Just make sure you grab his Handcuff Jonathan Williams in later rounds.

 

5. Jordan Howard - Chicago Bears

Brian MurphyHoward’s stock has slumped slightly as it looks like the Bears will head into the season with an alarmingly low amount of proven talent around him.

John Adams: With the exception of Johnson and Bell, the Bears Jordan Howard has the most upside of any running back coming into the 2017 season. He finished second in the league last year with 1,313 rushing yards while averaging 5.2 yards-per-carry. The Bears bet the farm on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who will need every single yard that Howard can churn out. Howard has slimmed down and will be the focal point of the Bears offense.

Josh Rabbitt: I think the Bears will be quite improved on offense this year. That allows me to zoom Howard ahead of more established guys on the list putting him at #5.

Levi Andrew: Talk about an amazing rookie year. Runs away with the job in Chicago. Reports say he’s slimmer coming into camp this year. This will only make him quicker. Big year for Howard, #5 is the perfect spot for him.


6. Melvin Gordon - Los Angeles Chargers

Brian MurphyGordon was fantasy’s No. 8 RB last season despite missing three games and averaging just 3.9 yards per carry. There is clearly room for improvement here.

John Adams: I’m ranking Melvin Gordon at 6, slightly higher than most people, because I believe he can really pull things together coming into the 2017 season. In 13 games last season, Gordon fell only three yards short of the 1,000 yard mark and scored a healthy ten touchdowns on the ground. The Chargers coaching staff thinks this is the year Gordon realizes his own potential and breaks out as one of the top five running in the league.

Josh Rabbitt: Coming in at #13 is the worst "bellcow" back in the league.  Gordon is just bad.  But he sees lots of carries.  So if thats your thing- fire away.

Levi Andrew: Melvin was so close to hitting 1,000 yards last year until an injury claimed his season. #8 in my rankings due to Anthony Lynn coming and saying he’s going to take his game to the next level. Lynn has been a RBs coach most of his career.


7. Devonta Freeman - Atlanta Falcons

Brian MurphyDespite being in a committee with Tevin Coleman, there are plenty of points to go around in the Falcons’ offense, enough to keep Freeman as an RB1.

John Adams: Just like DeMarco Murray, Devonta Freeman was another top-notch running back who thrived in a two-back system last season in Atlanta. Freeman scored eleven rushing touchdowns last season to match his 2015 scoring output. Freeman also improved his yards-per-carry from 4.0 to 4.8. while catching 54 passes for 462 yards and two touchdowns.

Josh Rabbitt: Yes, all the way at 11th I have Devonta. "Why?", you ask... check out my #12 (Melvin Gordon)

Levi Andrew: Freeman has finished the last two seasons as #1 in 2015 and #6 in 2016 for RBs. I have him at #7 this year since there is a new OC in Atlanta this year. Hopefully the keep the same blocking scheme.


8. Demarco Murray - Tennessee Titans

Brian MurphyMurray won’t repeat his No. 5 RB finish from last season, but if he can keep the injury bug away for another year, he will still be in the RB1 range as part of Tennessee’s ground-based offense.

John Adams: DeMarco Murray may be splitting time again with sophomore running back Derrick Henry, but having a two-headed running attack only seemed to Murray last season. Look for Murray to start the season strong again and slightly fade down the stretch as Henry asserts himself. This is a great one-two punch for the Titans offense and Murray is still an asset for your fantasy team.

Josh Rabbitt: Here is where I start to get pretty nervous about the RB talent pool. Yes, all of 8 backs deep I get nervous. Murray could be a RB1, if he doesn't have a ton of carries stolen by talented Henry.

Levi Andrew: Demarco had a fantastic season last year after having a disappointing season in 2015. I would have him higher than #6, but I believe that they will get Derrick Henry involved more this year.


9. Jay Ajayi - Miami Dolphins

Brian MurphyAjayi has been getting a ton of buzz this offseason. He is primed to be a workhorse for Miami and has been getting praised for boosting his pass-catching ability.

John Adams: Word around the campfire is that Fins running back Jay Ajayi is in for a much bigger workload coming into the 2017 season now that he is the team’s undisputed starter. The Dolphins offensive line is nothing to write home about, but with a significant uptick in carries, Ajayi will be long gone in fantasy drafts before the third round roll around.

Josh Rabbitt: What to do with a bell cow you would never draft and refuse to touch? Put him in at 10th I guess.

Levi Andrew: My #9 RB only because he only rushed for 100 yards in 4 games last year and 3 of them were 200-yard games. He also only had more than 30 yards receiving once.  The OC came out and said they will get him more involved in the passing game this year though.


10. Leonard Fournette - Jacksonville Jaguars

Brian MurphyFournette is not Ezekiel Elliott, and I have concerns about his long-term value. But he could be asked to carry the Jags’ offense in his first year.

John Adams: The Jags didn’t burn the fourth pick in the entire 2017 NFL draft to have Leonard Fournette ride the pine. Jacksonville will be running the ball plenty and the LSU product will be the guy toting the rock. The challenge in Jacksonville won’t be Fournette’s ability, the problem is the Jaguars offensive line. It’s patchy at best and could slow down one of the top rookie talents coming into the 2017 season.

Josh Rabbitt: What to do with a bell cow you would never draft and refuse to touch?  Put him in at 10th I guess.

Levi Andrew: Leonard can take the Jags Offense to the next level. #12 just because we haven’t seen him play in the NFL, but we know he can play. The Jags will ride him to take the pressure off Bortles.


11. Todd Gurley - Los Angeles Rams

Brian MurphyWorkload, workload, workload. Only four running backs had more carries than Gurley in 2016.

John Adams: Rams RB Todd Gurley had 278 rush attempts last season and rushed for an underwhelming 885 yards and 6 touchdowns. It was a fall from grace after the lofty expectations coming into last season and fantasy owners should temper their expectations coming into 2017.

Josh Rabbitt: Why do I have Gurley @ #4?  Pure talent. There is not a better pick for a bounce back candidate in the league. Jeff Fisher was as creative as a Jr. High coach. I don't think the same problem will happen this year.

Levi Andrew: Gurley finished last year as the #20 RB, being ranked #14 with hopes that Sean McVay can make him into the star he was. We know 7-9 Jeff Fisher didn’t do him any favors.


12. Lamar Miller - Houston Texans

Brian MurphyEven with fewer touches this season, Miller should be able to remain a solid RB2 in fantasy.

John Adams: Texans RB Lamar Miller was a work horse for the struggling Texans last season, but his numbers didn’t pan out as well as many fantasy owners would have hoped. Miller played through a slew of injuries last season rushing 268 times for 1,073 yards and just five scores. He will get plenty of opportunities, but his results could be suspect.

Josh Rabbitt: How long will he hold onto his job is my biggest question. The Foreman train is coming. All he needs is a chance.

Levi Andrew: Miller finally started getting the use he needed in Miami last year until he got hurt. My #10 RB can only go up. If Deshaun Watson wins the starting job and feeds the ball to Hopkins and Fuller, this will take the pressure off Miller. Miller could finish in the top 5.


13. Isaiah Crowell - Cleveland Browns

Brian MurphyCrowell, who once seemed to be persona non grata in fantasy, was one of our game’s top scorers in the final month of the season. The Browns want to give more work in 2017.

John Adams: The success of Isaiah Crowell in 2017 largely depends on how much the Browns are willing to lean on him. Cleveland went a long way to improving their offensive line during the offseason, but committing to the run is easier said than done. Crowell only had 198 rushing attempts last season, but still nearly reached the 1,000 yard mark to go along with 7 rushing TDs. Crowell is one this year’s top high risk/high reward players.

Josh Rabbitt: Bellcow, decent talent. Plays for the Browns. Middle of the road RB#2 seems right.

Levi Andrew: Hue Jackson wants a balanced offense. Crowell is going to get work and a lot. Having him ranked #16 is where he will most likely finish.


14. Carlos Hyde - San Francisco 49ers

Brian MurphyHyde may never be able to play 16 games. If that ever does happen, he’ll be a workhorse-type player.

John Adams: There are some real concerns emanating out of the city by the bay about how 49ers running back Carlos Hyde will fit into coach Kyle Shanahan’s run philosophy. Hyde will start the season for the 49ers, but he may not finish it. He’s a pick that carries a great deal of risk for fantasy owners unless he is traded.

Josh Rabbitt: Rumors or no, Hyde is far and away the best back on the roster. He needs to play.

Levi Andrew: If Shanahan uses Hyde as his Freeman, Hyde can be a top RB. I feel I may even be too high at #15. Joe Williams makes me shake in my boots for Hyde. Here’s to hoping Hyde can stay healthy and keep the job.


15. Spencer Ware - Kansas City Chiefs

Brian MurphyRookie Kareem Hunt is a threat, but Ware has rightfully earned the top spot on Kansas City’s running back depth chart.

John Adams: There’s certainly been some off season noise about Chiefs RB Spencer Ware possibly losing his starting position to rookie Kareem Hunt. The reality is that Hunt has a long way to go before he even has a chance to knock Ware out of the starting lineup. Ware gained 943 yards last season playing in just 14 games. His 5 total touchdowns were a bit underwhelming, but should be good enough to keep him in the starting lineup.

Josh Rabbitt: Rumors of his demise are being overblown. At #9 I am sure that I am higher on Ware than anyone else here. I think KC's offense runs first through Hill, second through Ware.

Levi Andrew: This ranking of 22 is fully assuming Kareem Hunt doesn’t take the full workload away from him. Struggled down the stretch last season.


16. Christian McCaffrey - Carolina Panthers

Brian MurphyThis rookie is like a newer, shinier Danny Woodhead. He will probably be inconsistent, but he is also going to have some huge games and be a weekly help in PPR formats.

John Adams: Christian McCaffrey is the first rookie to crack our list of fantasy RB’s, but he could rank much higher by season’s end. Fellow rookie Leonard Fournette may possess a slightly stronger skill set, but McCaffrey goes into a Carolina system that might be fully committed to build around him. As he adjusts to the speed of the game, McCaffrey may be a top tier contender for rookie of the year.

Josh Rabbitt: Somehow turned from "underrated" to "greatest prospect ever", McCaffery should give you some solid week in week out points.

Levi Andrew: McCaffrey was my #1 running back for rookies. I only have him at #20 due to Stewart still being involved in the backfield.


17. Mark Ingram - New Orleans Saints

Brian MurphyAlthough Adrian Peterson is now in town, the Saints are still a pass-first team. That’s where Ingram will pick up most of his value.

John Adams: Saints running back is coming off an interesting season where he rushed for 1,043 yards on 205 attempts and pulled down 46 receptions for 319 yards. The burning question in New Orleans is how will the addition of Adrian Peterson impact Ingram’s workload? If anything, having A-P as a teammate could work out in everyone’s favor. Tim Hightower is gone and like it or not, Peterson is a tremendous upgrade.

Josh Rabbitt: What a mess the Saints' backfield is. I still like Ingram to have the most "value".

Levi Andrew: If Adrian Peterson didn’t land with the Saints, I would have Ingram way higher the 19.


18. Marshawn Lynch - Oakland Raiders

Brian MurphyA 31-year-old running back who was out of football last year is a very realistic RB2 in fantasy this year. This position becomes a test of faith rather quickly.

John Adams: After a year off, Marshawn Lynch is one of the biggest RB question marks coming into the 2017 season. Is this the return of Beast Mode or Bust Mode? Lynch is at the top of the depth chart for the soon-to-be Vegas Raiders after Latavius Murray left for Minnesota, but fantasy owners are in a wait and see mode.

Josh Rabbitt: Old man comes back for another run in the silver and black? Who cares? Old dude behind a questionable run blocking line = RB3.

Levi Andrew: A year away from football did Lynch’s body good. He is bonding with his new teammates. The amazing O-line in Oakland makes him my #13 RB.


19. Bilal Powell - New York Jets

Brian MurphyPowell looked like a worthy RB1 last December. Given Matt Forte’s age and decline in play, the Jets would be better off giving Powell the majority of the work.

John Adams: The Jets say they are taking a wait and see approach to who will take the lead back role in 2017, but Matt Forte seems to have taken one too many hits from father time last season. Powell and Forte will likely split carries at the beginning of the season, but Powell should almost certainly see an increased workload.

Josh Rabbitt: If he is going to see most of the work, he has to be in the RB2 mix.

Levi Andrew: Had a great season last year. Ranked 21st because I think he finally surpasses Matt Forte for most carries.


20. Joe Mixon - Cincinnati Bengals

Brian MurphyMixon’s big-play ability is going to give him some week-winning box scores. However, Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard are not just going to vanish.

John Adams: If he can stay out of trouble, and that’s a big IF, Joe Mixon just might be able to showcase his impressive talents for the Cincinnati Bengals during the 2017 season. His personal issues and temper are probably worth the risk around the third round of most fantasy drafts.

Josh Rabbitt: It will take more time than we think for him to overtake Hill, but given that time he has the talent to succeed.

Levi Andrew: I am hopping on the Mixon band wagon. After watching and reading more I decided to put him at #24. Mixon makes Hill expendable.


21. Tevin Coleman - Atlanta Falcons

Brian MurphyColeman was fantasy’s No. 17 RB last year. Even if Atlanta’s offense isn’t quite as explosive as it was last season, he should fall within the RB2 range.

John Adams: Atlanta RB Tevin Coleman is a top-notch backup and sees plenty of action even when Devonta Freeman is on the field.

Josh Rabbitt: Yes I have Tevin Coleman as a RB#1, as the 12th RB. Before you spike your phone or laptop, look at Coleman's underlying numbers. He is a better back in every way shape or form than Freeman. All he needs is the carries. My hope is this turns into a time share.

Levi Andrew: If Atlanta keeps the same scheme as they’ve been saying they will, Telvin will still be heavily involved. A little regression puts him at #25.


22. C.J. Anderson - Denver Broncos

Brian MurphyHe’ll start out as the head of Denver’s ground game committee. Giving Jamaal Charles’ knees and Devontae Booker’s ineffectiveness as a rookie, it’s not out of the question that he could own the gig all year long.

John Adams: C.J. Anderson only played in 7 games last season leaving many fantasy owners scrambling for a place to hide. The Broncos added Jamaal Charles to the mix, but he’s only played in 8 games total in the past two seasons. 

Josh Rabbitt: Don't trust him. Don't like him. Booker and Charles will take reps. #27 is probably even too high.

Levi Andrew: Running back by committee in Denver. I don’t know who to rank higher. C.J. #36. Charles #37.


23. Eddie Lacy - Seattle Seahawks

Brian MurphyI don’t expect Lacy to do much behind Seattle’s subpar offensive line.

John Adams: Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is a big fat and juicy 253 luscious pounds. Pete Carroll and Seattle are hoping he can lay off the extra biscuits before the regular season rolls around.

Josh Rabbitt: Fat Eddie Lacy may be worth a RB3.

Levi Andrew: There are too many variables leading to Lacy being my #17 RB. Hawks’ O-line, his weight, the fact he’s still not cleared from his ankle injury. If all of those align with the stars, he could have a great season.


24. Ty Montgomery - Green Bay Packers

Brian MurphyThe Packers seem dead set on limiting Montgomery’s workload, but he can handle 12-15 touches per game. If he gets that much, my No. 21 ranking will probably be too low.

John Adams: According to the Packers, Ty Montgomery will keep his starting job in Green Bay. His best attribute in 2016 was his pass catching where he hauled in 44 receptions for 348 yards.

Josh Rabbitt: If they trusted him, why did they draft 3 backs?

Levi Andrew: Ty played down great in the second half of the season. Mike McCarthy said he’s still the starter even after drafting 3 RBs. Two of which could easily steal the job away. That’s why I have him at #28.


25. Paul Perkins - New York Giants

Brian MurphyI want to rank him higher than No. 27. However, I just don’t think the Giants fully trust him yet.

John Adams: All signs point to the New York Giants tapping Paul Perkins as their leading running back coming into the 2017 season. As a rookie last year, Perkins easily outplayed Rashad Jennings rushing for 456 yards on 112 attempts. Apparently, the Giants aren’t concerned that Perkins never found the end zone.

Josh Rabbitt: Will a NYG back ever work out? RB#3 production SHOULD be a lock.

Levi Andrew: Perkins finds himself in his 2nd season as a Giant. Could easily surpass my ranking of 23rd. He can catch and can rush the ball with the best of them.

26. Frank Gore - Indianapolis Colts

Brian Murphy: He is still starting for the Colts, but it’s clear that the end is near.

John Adams: Colts RB Frank Gore turned 34-years-old a couple of weeks ago, but is still listed as the lead back in Indianapolis. He broke the 1,000 yard mark last season and scored 4 rushing and 4 passing touchdowns. He’s old, but he really doesn’t have any competition to push him out of the backfield.

Josh Rabbitt: The last of the RB3's in my book.

Levi Andrew: Trusty Frank Gore. He is entering his 13th season. Ranked 18th because I feel he still has another 1,000-yard season in him. He is 34 - this could be his decline year.


27. Ameer Abdullah - Detroit Lions

Brian Murphy: He is the Lions’ starter for now, but I fear the effects of his foot injury from last year could linger.

John Adams: After playing only two games last season, Lions RB Ameer Abdullah is reportedly fully healed from a 2016 foot injury. The injury was recently revealed to be a Lisfranc “tear.” But that’s apparently ancient history now as the Lions list Abdullah as their starter coming into 2017.

Josh Rabbitt: Will be pushed. Then will get hurt. Meh.

Levi Andrew: The Lions expect him to be the workhorse back. Missed all of 2 games to a Lisfranc tear in his foot. Again, Lions back field is a mess. Ranked #31, Riddick ranked #30.


28. Mike Gillislee - New England Patriots

Brian Murphy: He looks like the leader in the Pats’ backfield at the moment, but you know this is going to be an unpredictable committee during the season.

John Adams: For right now, Mike Gillislee is the projected starter for the Patriots and that makes him a very intriguing prospect. Gillislee shined in Buffalo last season while LeSean McCoy was hurt. He rushed 101 times for 577 yards and 8 touchdowns and could make those numbers spike in New England.

Josh Rabbitt: Blount role activated? I prefer Rex, but he should compete.

Levi Andrew: Was signed from the Bills to take the Blount role. Big back that can push piles. TD expectations is why I have Gillislee at #26.


29. LeGarrette Blount - Philadelphia Eagles

Brian Murphy: Anyone who thinks Blount will come close to his 2016 totals is horribly mistaken. I want nothing to do with him this season.

John Adams: If history shows us anything, it’s that no matter how good a running back performs in New England, Bill Belichick is always willing to let that player go. Blount toted the rock 299 times last season racking up 1,161 yards and a league leading 18 touchdowns, but now he’s playing for Philadelphia. This is a monumental upgrade from the fragile Ryan Mathews. Don’t expect anything close to 18 touchdowns, but ten scores is not that far out of reach for Blount.

Josh Rabbitt: Blount role in Philly? Meh.

Levi Andrew: Blount finished last year with 18 TDs and 1,161 yards. You might say I’m crazy having him at #11, but I think the Eagles know how to use him. TDs will go down, but yards will go up.


30. Theo Riddick - Detroit Lions

Brian Murphy: Once again, he’s an injury to Ameer Abdullah away from being worthwhile, but more so in PPRs than in standard leagues.

John Adams: Lions RB Theo Riddick went on injured reserve at the end of 2016 and had double wrist surgery in March. Riddick still has a long way to go in his recovery, but is expected back some time in August.

Josh Rabbitt: Abdullah sucks. Riddick is among the best pass catching RB's in the league. He will be in the solid RB#2 mix.

Levi Andrew: Theo Riddick was a contributor rushing and receiving last year until he dealt with double wrist injuries. Lions’ back field is a mess have Riddick #30, Abdullah #31.


31. Dalvin Cook - Minnesota Vikings

Brian Murphy: With Latavius Murray looking iffy to begin the season healthy, Cook could very well be the Vikings’ Week 1 starter.

John Adams: Many experts believe that Dalvin Cook was the most talented RB in this year’s NFL Draft, but a poison cocktail of a bad combine, multiple injuries and a slew of off-the-field issues knocked him down to the second round. The Vikings are convinced that a change in scenery will help Cook develop into the player they need him to be.

Levi Andrew: Everyone has Cook super high in their rankings, but they’re all forgetting how shaky that O-line has been. Yes, he’s a good player, but in football you still need a decent line. Ranked #33 with the O-line concerns and rookie curve to learn.


32. Danny Woodhead - Baltimore Ravens

Brian Murphy: If Woodhead stays on the field, I have no doubt that he will finish higher than my No. 29 ranking. Alas, the confidence that he can last through a 16-game season shouldn’t be high.

John Adams: Danny Woodhead says he will come into the 2017 season at 100 percent after suffering a torn ACL back in September. It will be interesting to see how this pass catching back fares playing alongside Joe Flacco in Baltimore.

Josh Rabbitt: Should be in the flex mix all year.

Levi Andrew: Insert impact player to the Ravens backfield. Woodhead is coming off an ACL tear, but has been practicing with no restrictions. I should have him higher than 32 but I think Kenneth Dixon will come back after his suspension and have some value splitting carries. HUGE red zone factor.


33. Jonathan Stewart - Carolina Panthers

Brian Murphy: Although McCaffrey gets more press, Stewart should still be the Panthers’ early-down back.

John Adams: Just because we ranked Panthers rookie Christian McCaffrey as the 10th rated running back, doesn’t mean that we should forget all about his veteran team mate Jonathan Stewart. Stewart has real sleeper potential, but don’t expect him to replicate his 824 yards and 9 touchdowns from last season.

Josh Rabbitt: I actually think he will see a good number of carries.

Levi Andrew: Jonathan has experience in two-headed backfields. I think McCaffery will play more that’s why I have Stewart at #34. I still think they can have two RB sets and kick McCaffery outside and rush Stewart up the middle.


34. Doug Martin - Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Brian Murphy: Martin is suspended for the first three games of the season. However, he still looks like the Bucs’ best option on first and second down.

John Adams: Doug Martin will start the season with a 3-game suspension for failing a drug test in December 2016. He’s saying and doing all the right things and the coaching staff says Martin looks great at OTA’s. Martin is obviously hoping for a bounce back season, but he is a player that comes with a great deal of risk.

Josh Rabbitt: Hard to trust, but another lotto ticket here.

Levi Andrew: Doug is suspended the first 3 games this year. That’s why I have him at 27. He comes back week 4 and runs away with the job. It says a lot that they’ve kept him around.


35. Latavius Murray - Minnesota Vikings

Brian Murphy: Murray won’t repeat his No. 5 RB finish from last season, but if he can keep the injury bug away for another year, he will still be in the RB1 range as part of Tennessee’s ground-based offense.

John Adams: Latavius Murray is still working his way back from ankle surgery in March, but expects to return to the field some time during training camp. It will hard to get much fantasy value from Murray as long as he is splitting work with Jerick McKinnon in Minnesota.

Josh Rabbitt: The best back on the Vikings' roster is worth what? Not much. But he could be a back end RB2.

Levi Andrew: Latavius Murray was a fantastic free agent pick up – until the Vikings drafted Dalvin Cook. If anything, this is a RB committee. Running back 44.

 

36. Derrick Henry - Tennessee Titans

Brian Murphy: Even if DeMarco Murray stays healthy, Henry is still going to be an option at the goal line and pick up a handful or more of touchdowns.

John Adams: If we knew that the Titans intended to feature Derrick Henry as the lead back for Tennessee, he would no doubt crack our top ten running backs list. But many fantasy players endured sleepless nights waiting for the Titans to plug in Henry. Henry averaged just a shade under five-yards-per-carry and scored 4 touchdowns to close out the last five games of the season. He has great upside, but only if he cracks the starting lineup.

Josh Rabbitt: If he gets the carries, he is a top 10 back. Will they both see enough carries? I think Murray keeps Henry off the field enough to matter tons.


37. Adrian Peterson - New Orleans Saints

Brian Murphy: I’ll bet against Peterson doing many notable things this year by placing him at No. 31. For those who expect more from him, you do have this fact going for you: He is Adrian Peterson.

John Adams: It’s hard to shut out the hype, but the Saints coaching staff insists that Adrian Peterson has regained much of his explosiveness having fully recovered from a torn meniscus he suffered last season while playing for the Vikings. Coach Sean Payton believes that Peterson and Mark Ingram will provide a very potent one-two punch.

Levi Andrew: If Adrian Peterson didn’t land with the Saints, I would have Ingram way higher the 19.


38. Robert Kelly - Washington Redskins

Brian Murphy: Kelley has a low ceiling, but I think he will hold off Samaje Perine for most of the year. He’s an OK RB2 or a very valuable RB3.

John Adams: It appears that “Fat Rob” made enough of an impact last season that he is now in line to start for the Redskins in 2017. Kelley racked up 704 yards and six scores last season on 168 carries. He may lose some attempts to rookie RB Samaje Perine, but for now, he’s locked in as the Skins starter.

Levi Andrew: Came into OTA’s looking slimmer which could help him keep the job. Crowded backfield as it is. That is why I have Kelly 46, Perine 47, and Thompson 48.


39. Samaje Perine - Washington Redskins

Brian Murphy: Rob Kelley isn’t an immovable object. One good year doesn’t buy you much time in the NFL. A few bad weeks from him could lead to Perine taking over.

Josh Rabbitt: My second rookie comes in at #14. I think he is this years Jordan Howard. Can we really not see the path to carries here?

Levi Andrew: Perine could win the job from Kelly in training camp or Kelly could play well into the season to struggle later in the season. Too hard to tell right now. RB 47.

40. C.J. Prosise - Seattle Seahawks

Brian Murphy: The Seahawks should try to get him more involved. He is much, much more dynamic than Eddie Lacy. 

Josh Rabbitt: Best bet for production out of Seattle's backfield. At this point I will take the talent I don't know over the talent I know I can't trust. #27 seems like a good place for him.

Levi Andrew: Perine could win the job from Kelly in training camp or Kelly could play well into the season to struggle later in the season. Too hard to tell right now. RB 47.


41. Kareem Hunt - Kansas City Chiefs

Brian Murphy: If Spencer Ware can’t replicate his 2016 success, this rookie will be there to pick up the pieces.

Josh Rabbitt: Key handcuff to my Ware being in the top 10.

Levi Andrew: If I knew he was for sure going to surpass Spencer Ware, I would have him ranked way higher than 29. I fully expect him to at least take the job by mid-season.

 

42. Jamaal Charles - Denver Broncos

Brian Murphy: I really hope he can make it back from another ACL reconstruction. He is my favorite bargain bin player right now.

John Adams: Jamaal Charles seems to believe he’s ready for a breakout with the Broncos, but as far as we are concerned, he barely made the cut as one of the top 50 running backs in the league. Charles has been an injury nightmare playing in a total of only 8 games over the course of the past two seasons. His only chance to overtake C.J. Anderson is if Anderson gets hurt, which is actually a real possibility.

Josh Rabbitt: If you can't tell on my back end picks- I swing for the fences. If you are wrong, better options appear in free agency early.

Levi Andrew: Jamaal needs to be healthy to make an impact. Running back by committee. Charles ranked #37, C.J. #36.

 

43. James White - New England Patriots

Brian Murphy: You know he is going to have some monster weeks, especially in PPR. Good luck guessing when they will occur.

John Adams: Yes, James White is a running back, but we like him for his prominent role as Tom Brady’s outlet receiver this season. Last year, White pulled in 60 receptions for 551 yards and five touchdowns. Despite a very crowded backfield, Bill Belichick will lean heavily on White so Brady can get the ball out quickly.

Josh Rabbitt: What if I'm wrong, and Burkehead isn't the #1 pass catcher? Well, we call this "hedging" in the industry.

Levi Andrew: PPR asset, per Bills’ game plan. That’s the hardest part with New England is per game RB changes. James White will lead the receiving backs in receptions. #41 RB.

 

44. Kenneth Dixon - Baltimore Ravens

Brian Murphy: He is suspended for the first four games of the season but is probably the Ravens’ most talented dual-threat running back. He’s definitely worth drafting in the later rounds.

Josh Rabbitt: Is West good enough to hold him off? If he isn't Dixon could win your fantasy league.

Levi Andrew: Suspended the first 4 games of the season and will have to fight Woodhead for touches. Harbaugh loves the kid though so he will get playing time. Could end up having a great season. RB 42 until he shows some more potential.

 

45. Matt Forte - New York Jets

Brian Murphy: The Jets will see if he has anything left. I’m skeptical, but there’s not much to lose by ranking him No. 44.

John Adams: Despite contradicting reports of running back by committee, it appears that Matt Forte will be playing second fiddle to Bilal Powell in New York this season. Even though Forte is coming off of a career worst year, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t carry significant value. However, his days as an RB1 seem to have passed him by.

Levi Andrew: Matt may get some 3rd down work. He is a shell of his old self.

 

46. Darren Sproles - Philadelphia Eagles

Brian Murphy: He’s basically a lock for about 700 yards and 4-5 touchdowns. That puts him right in range at No. 40.

John Adams: With LeGarrette Blount pounding the ball, the Eagles hope this will clear out some space for their ageless pass catching back Darren Sproles. Sproles should have more room to operate and could actually match his back to back seasons with fifty or more receptions.

Levi Andrew: Sproles will always have his role on the Eagles, 35 represents that. He’s a pass catching back that can take it to the house.

 

47. Rex Burkhead - New England Patriots

Josh Rabbitt: Yes. I have Rex Burkhead as #20. My compadres probably don't have him on their list. Lets just wait and see who is right on this one. Bill doesn't give out money like that for nothing.

Levi Andrew: Till Gillislee was signed I would have had Rex in the 20’s. Now he must carve out a role. Huge sleeper potential. My #38 RB with huge upside.


48. Terrance West - Baltimore Ravens

John Adams: Terrance West is the lead back in Baltimore for the foreseeable future. Kenneth Dixon was at least in the conversation until the league suspended him for the first four games of the season for PEDs. West will share running back duties with Danny Woodhead, who Baltimore signed in March after Dixon’s suspension.

Josh Rabbitt: Defacto #1 back? But very hard to trust. I think he will put up much better numbers than his current ADP gives him.

Levi Andrew: Til Gillislee was signed I would have had Rex in the 20’s. Now he must carve out a role. Huge sleeper potential. My #38 RB with huge upside.


49. Chris Thompson - Washington Redskins

John Adams: Fat Rob may be the lead back in Washington, but Skins QB Kirk Cousins loves target Chris Thompson when he’s in a jam. Not only did Thompson secure 49 receptions for 349 yards and 2 touchdowns last season, he also rushed 68 times for 356 yards recording 3 scores on the ground.

Josh Rabbitt: Is maddening usage of running backs your thing? In that case step right up to Chris Thompson!

Levi Andrew: Thompson will have value no matter who wins the early-down work. Good PPR asset. Could end up a nice flex option.


50. Giovanni Bernard - Cincinnati Bengals

John Adams: Bernard tore his ACL in November and is working hard to try and fully recover by the start of the 2017 season. He is targeting Week 1, but things are up in the air right now. Whether he is ready or not, it appears that Bengals rookie RB Joe Mixon will be in for a heavy workload to start the season.

Levi Andrew: Will still see plenty of playing time even with Joe Mixon taking over. Better for PPR. RB 43 because he is coming off an ACL tear and still isn’t cleared for full go.
