 Todd Gurley, LAR (Bye: 12)

Height: 6’1”   Weight: 222   DOB: 1994-08-03   Age: 23

Outlook: A monster rookie season saw Gurley drafted as a top five pick in many fantasy drafts in 2016, which then led to major disappointment as Gurley and the Rams offense couldn't get things going under head coach Jeff Fisher. Many fantasy owner refused to draft Gurley going into 2017 because of the down season, but Gurley made them regret that decision and reignited belief in fantasy owners by turning in a MVP fantasy season in 2017 with nearly 2,100 total yards and 19 touchdowns.

While his receiving stats last this past season were propped up a bit by a few dump offs which he took for big yardage, Gurley has proven himself to be a reliable pass catcher and playmaker. He was targeted 29 more times in the passing game in 2017 than he was in 2016. The thing that didn't change from 2016 to 2017 was Gurley's usage on the ground. He had 278 carries in 2016 while he got 279 carries in 2017. The big difference was that the Rams offense as a whole was substantially improved which allowed Gurley to increase his yards per attempt by a full 1.5 yards.

Now considered one of the top players heading into 2018, Gurley is in line to see a heavy workload both as a runner and a pass catcher, with the team not having invested much in the running back position this offseason. Even in his significant down season of 2016, Gurley finished as a mid-level RB2, which gives us a glimpse at what would be his absolute worst-case scenario, presuming he stayed healthy. The upside, as we've seen, is tremendous with a player like Gurley. He's one of the league's few remaining workhorse-type backs and that makes him a real contender to again be a league-winner this season.

2018 (Projected)NO 147 806 7 78 717 4 218.3  

Outlook: If you had Alvin Kamara on your roster in 2017, congratulations on your number one seed in the playoffs. Unfortunately, his injury in Week 14 probably cost you in your run to the championship. But that's in the past and now there's even more reason to love Kamara in 2018.

How efficient was Alvin Kamara in 2017? Since 1970, there have only been 11 seasons where a player had at least 120 rush attempts with an average over 6 yards per carry and four of those seasons were by quarterbacks. When you add in his 13 touchdowns, it's clear to see why he became such a star during his rookie year.

It's unlikely that Kamara will maintain this level of efficiency, but he should see an increase in volume in 2018 to make up for any drop off. Because his ADP will hover around the top 6 picks of most drafts, he won't be the same level of league winner that he was in 2017, but instead, he'll be a cornerstone pick that drafters can rely on.

Outlook: The success of rookie running backs Ezekiel Elliott, Alvin Kamara, Dalvin Cook, Kareem Hunt, and Leonard Fournette over the past two seasons has challenged the old narrative that first-year players cannot be stud running backs right out of the chute. Kamara, Hunt, Fournette, and Cook all finished as RB1's last season regarding points per game, while Elliott followed up his impressive rookie campaign in 2016 with a second-place finish last year.

After setting the college football world on fire last season and turning heads at the combine, Saquon Barkley became the first running back since Reggie Bush to be taken second overall in the draft. Barkley joins an excellent situation in New York on a team with an improved offensive line and a passing game that will not allow opposing defenses to sell out on the run.

With volume and opportunity being king in fantasy football, Barkley will be heavily used in both the rushing and ground game, making him a first-round pick in all formats with the upside as a top-5 RB in 2018.
