All good choices. Duke Johnson is an awesome player, but there's just something about drafting Browns players in fantasy...
Totally forgot about Derrick Henry - McCluster and Cobb aren't that scary, so Henry should be given a chance before them.
That's a good one. We know CJ Spiller isn't doing anything. There's also Daniel Lasco on the Saints, but Hightower probably gets the first chance.
I watch the Raiders sometimes. I feel like he used to be a lot more explosive, and just isn't the same. It's a tough league to last in though, and you're probably right about Washington - it's just a matter of when. Raiders are looking to make a playoff run this season.
We all dream of drafting that late-round running back who eventually gets the starting job and propels you to a fantasy championship. The late-round RBs are all the hype this year. Here are some people I've got my eye on (in no particular order). Let's hear yours.
McKinnon – Peterson can’t stay healthy forever
Charlie Sims – Doug Martin got that fat contract and doesn’t have the incentive to perform anymore
Tevin Coleman – Freeman not looking as sharp
DeAndre Washington – Latavius Murray slowing down
Christine Michael – Rawls runs very aggressively and wouldn’t be surprised if he gets injured
Spencer Ware – One injury away from being a solid RB2+
Josh Ferguson (or maybe even Turbin) – Gore is still around?
Jay Ajayi – Arian Foster got injured again when I was typing this
Wendell Smallwood – Shouldn’t be hard to leapfrog Mathews and Sproles
Keith Marshall – They love Matt Jones, but they don’t love his fumbling issues
I'd be down for Gronk, who does he want? Walker/Baldwin for Gronk would be awesome. Jeffrey/Walker isn't as much of a steal, but is interesting if you see another FA backup sleeper that you can add with the free roster spot.
I like Hopkins then Green. I'm not confident in drafting Robinson yet. He'll have a solid year, but might not be a top-10 WR in my opinion. You know what you're getting with the other two.
I concur, it's the year to try to nab one of those top 3 WRs early if you can. I like Hopkins too and I'd consider drafting him before an RB. I'm not sold on Dez - he's a great player, but I see him as a late 1st/early 2nd round pick.
