COMMENTS
  Todd Gurley, LAR: Sean McVay's offense turned Gurley into the stud we thought he could be. A top 5 overall pick any format.

  David Johnson, ARI: Over the wrist injury, D.J. is back in the mix as a top 5 overall pick. 20 TDs in 2016.

  Le'Veon Bell, PIT: Bell skipped the entire pre-season last year and finished as the fantasy RB2. He's worthy of the No.1 overall pick.

  Ezekiel Elliott, DAL: Lack of proven commodities at receiver means the offense will run through Zeke. He's a top-5 pick in any format.

  Alvin Kamara, NO: Kamara's insane efficiency: 12.6 touches per game, 1554 combined yards, 13 TDs - 1.15 FPts per touch (standard scoring) and 1.56 FPts (PPR scoring).

  Melvin Gordon, LAC: Inefficient? Sure. However Gordon's volume and 24 total TDs the last two seasons make him a solid RB1.

  Saquon Barkley, NYG: The rookie should be leaned on heavily. Has the chops to play all three downs. Likely a first round pick in redraft leagues.

  Kareem Hunt, KC: 325 touches last season classifies Hunt as a workhorse back. Should see similar usage with perhaps a slight uptick in receptions.

  Dalvin Cook, MIN: Cook (ACL) handled 75 percent of Vikings RB carries before knee injury. Likely won't get full workload to start the season.

  Leonard Fournette, JAC: Fournette should maintain his low-end RB1 status with upside for more if he can play all 16 games.

  Devonta Freeman, ATL: Coming off late-season knee issues, Freeman will likely be limited in early-summer workouts.

  Joe Mixon, CIN: Should start the season as featured back and see a bump in usage (178 carries in 2017). Mid-RB2 value.

  Jerick McKinnon, SF: McKinnon's volume is expected to increase. Will share time with Breida but be the lead back in Shanahan's offense.

  Jordan Howard, CHI: Should be the featured back, but will likely cede third-down work to Cohen. Averaged 1217 rush yards over first two years.

Christian McCaffrey, CAR: Will see most of Carolina's 3rd down snaps and a decent chunk or early-down snaps too. Value jumps in PPR leagues.

  Alex Collins, BAL: Collins made a name for himself last season but the Ravens backfield remains crowded with Buck Allen and Kenneth Dixon.

  Jay Ajayi, PHI: Should lead the Eagles in rushing attempts. 15-17 touches per game is reasonable given the Eagles RBBC.

  Derrick Henry, TEN: Thoughts of Henry being a three-down workhorse were dashed when team signed Dion Lewis this off-season.

  Lamar Miller, HOU: Miller saw a reduced role in 2017, but should make a significant contribution regardless of Foreman's health.

  Rex Burkhead, NE: Burkhead's value on the rise thanks to knee issue for Michel.

  Marlon Mack, IND: Mack is penciled in as the lead back, but a RBBC is expected.

  LeSean McCoy, BUF: McCoy is being accused of domestic violence. NFL is investigating.

  Marshawn Lynch, OAK: Lynch (32) is the lead dog in a crowded RB room. He'll do well to return RB2 value at the end of the season.

  Dion Lewis, TEN: Expected to share time with Henry. Will see some early down work, but should play the majority of third-downs.

  Tevin Coleman, ATL: Coleman's role in the offense is secure making him a target in the middle rounds of redraft leagues.

  Kenyan Drake, MIA: Took over the starting RB role in Week 13 last season. Averaged 4.8 yards per carry to close out the year.

  Mark Ingram, NO: Ingram (4-game suspension) could come at a value in re-draft leagues as fantasy owners drool over Kamara.

  Isaiah Crowell, NYJ: Should step into an early-down role but will be part of a RBBC. Upside is capped.

  Royce Freeman, DEN: Broncos will have a new look at RB this season including the rookie Freeman. Will do most damage on early downs.

Samaje Perine, WAS: Should get first crack at early-down work with Guice (ACL) out for the year.

  Carlos Hyde, CLE: Hyde will get first crack to make an impact in the Cleveland backfield. Upside is capped with Duke and Chubb in the mix.

  Jamaal Williams, GB: Williams saw 20+ plus touches six times from Week 10 on. He'll battle with Jones and Montgomery for RB snaps.

  Devontae Booker, DEN: Expected to head into training camp as the lead back. Will battle rookie Royce Freeman for starting job.

  Duke Johnson, CLE: Duke finished 4th-6th-4th in RB receptions the last 3 years. Should see plenty of dump-offs in Haley's offense. Most valuable in PPR leagues.

Chris Carson, SEA: Currenlty working ahead of Penny in camp.

  Sony Michel, NE: Had fluid drained from knee. Will miss time during camp but could be ready Week 1.

  Kerryon Johnson, DET: RBBC in effect. The rookie will fight for carries with Blount. Lions had second-fewest rushing attempts last season.

  Chris Thompson, WAS: Thompson (leg) is being limited in camp. Value increased in PPR leagues.

Ty Montgomery, GB: With Montgomery healthy, the Packers have 3 capable RBs causing headaches for fantasy owners.

Peyton Barber, TB: Expect Barber and rookie Ronald Jones to share the load in Tampa. Barber will come at a cheaper cost.

  Giovani Bernard, CIN: Cincy's best receiving back will play second fiddle to Mixon. Has Flex appeal in PPR leagues. 49-39-43 receptions last 3 years.

  Javorius Allen, BAL: A dual threat option, Allen has more value in PPR leagues. 46 catches in 2017.

  Frank Gore, MIA: The 35 year-old has fantasy finishes the last 5 years (standard scoring) of: RB20, RB12, RB11, RB16, RB13.

  Latavius Murray, MIN: Will likely see his workload reduced, but should have role as No.2 option behind Cook.

  Tarik Cohen, CHI: Cohen will be a swiss army knife in OC Matt Nagy's offense. Had 53 receptions as a rookie.

  Bilal Powell, NYJ: Will be sharing time with Crowell, capping his fantasy upside.

Ronald Jones, TB: Rookie has a chance to become the lead back in Tampa's offense. Can be considered a high upside RB2.

  James White, NE: White seems locked into his role as a pass-catching specialist. He's had more receptions than rushes during his four years in the league.

  C.J. Anderson, CAR: Anderson replaces J-Stew as early-down pounder. Could lead team in carries but will trail McCaffrey in fantasy value.

Rashaad Penny, SEA: Offense runs through Wilson and Seattle RBs last returned RB2 value in 2013 (Lynch).

  Doug Martin, OAK: Martin will be fighting for opportunities with Washington and Richard behind starter Marshawn Lynch.

  Corey Clement, PHI: Has earned more playing time after scoring 6 TDs in limited opportunities last season. Late-round flier or waiver wire add.

  Theo Riddick, DET: Riddick locked in as third-down specialist. Has posted back-to-back 53-catch seasons.

  D'Onta Foreman, HOU: Foreman (Achilles) will likely be limited in camp. Could share duties with Miller early in the season.

  Nick Chubb, CLE: Will have tough time cracking fantasy relevance with Hyde and Duke ahead of him. Could spell Hyde on early-downs.

  Aaron Jones, GB: Will serve 2-game suspension. Had the best yards per carry (5.5) of any Packers RB last season.

  LeGarrette Blount, DET: Blount will be a TD-dependent fantasy asset. Unfortunately the Lions are decidedly a pass-first team.

  Darren Sproles, PHI: Sproles is another cog in the Eagles three-headed RBBC. Feel good stories on his usage are abound but he's only a late-round flier at age 30.
