A Fantasy Football running back sleeper? Colts running back Jordan Wilkins

Yahoo Sports

The New Orleans Saints drafted Alvin Kamara in the third round of the 2017 NFL draft, and it paid major dividends. Kamara ran for 728 yards. He caught 81 passes for 826 yards.

Fantasy Football owners who added Kamara were rewarded, many with title runs.. So that raises a question: Who will be 2018’s Kamara?

On Thursday, Yahoo Sports fantasy expert Brad Evans provided his response: Jordan Wilkins.

The Indianapolis Colts selected the running back out of Ole Miss in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Last year, in college, Wilkins ran for 1,011 yards and nine touchdowns. He stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 216 pounds.

Marlon Mack was expected to open the season atop the depth chart but a hamstring injury has opened the door. Wilkins is competing for playing time with fellow rookie Nyheim Hines and Robert Turbin, who is suspended for the first four games of the season. But given the chance, Wilkins has the ability to be a hot fantasy commodity this season.
