As always, running backs will be a valuable commodity – you absolutely have to get one of the top tier or two guys if you want to have any chance to win your league. So who is #1 overall? Let’s take a look in Dave B’s 2015 preseason Running Backs Top 10.
1. Le’Veon Bell PIT
Bell’s suspension has many afraid to take Bell #1 overall – not me. Bell was by far the most productive player in Fantasy last year in the running and passing games. He rumbled for 4.7 yards per carry last year and was second among RBs in receptions as well (83). Bell is a monster – if you can find an OK replacement for the first two weeks of the Fantasy season Bell may carry or receive you to the promise land this year.
Simply put there is no greater threat from week-to-week than Bell. If he wasn’t suspended there would be ZERO argument about the #1 overall draft this year.
2. Jamaal Charles KC
Charles could have landed anywhere from #1-3 on this list but I have him #2. If not for an ankle injury in KC’s second game Charles may have wound up first in Fantasy points last year. He’s a legitimate home run hitter and despite all of the talk of limiting his touches this year can do more with those limited touches than almost everyone else on the board.
Health is a slight issue but I’m willing to gamble on one of the truest football players on the planet.
3. Eddie Lacy GB
Started very slowly last year for some reason but caught fire toward the end of the season and wound up sixth among RBs in Fantasy production. He is a three down back on one of the best offenses in the game and will definitely get his chances to score. Lacy could catch 50 balls this year, run for 1200 yards and score up to 15 TDs. He looks to be about as reliable as they come and a worthy top 3 overall pick.
4. Adrian Peterson MIN
Those of you that took AP in the first round last year (me included) may have a little bitterness but don’t. Peterson is rested, refreshed, and healthy and has a couple of added elements to his game – an enormous chip on his shoulder and a need to prove all of his haters wrong. Look – Peterson is still one of the freakiest athletes in the game today and armed with a new offensive coordinator that is certain to feature him will be great for his value. Keep in mind that he’s also playing in an offense that has drastically improved since the last time he took the field. There is nothing to hate about this guy.
AP has a chance to finish #1 in Fantasy production this year – no reason to overthink this one.
5. Marshawn Lynch SEA
Ya, ya – he’s almost 30 years old. So what?! He has four consecutive seasons over 1200 yards and hasn’t scored less than 12 times in any of those four seasons. His consistency is remarkable – his work load isn’t going to be reduced! Lynch’s recent inclusion in the passing game doesn’t hurt his value either. He is as safe as they come and the ceiling is high for this guy.
6. Matt Forte CHI
Extremely productive guy who has gone over 1000 yards in his last four seasons – he has caught at least 68 balls in each of his last three to add to his value – an insane 102 receptions last year for 808 yards and 4 TDs!!! Forte finished #4 among running backs in Fantasy last year.
Forte will be productive again – the Bears absolutely need to rely on him to be successful. He’s a three-down, dual threat back that will rarely leave the field – a good recipe for Fantasy success.
7. C.J. Anderson DEN
New Coach Gary Kubiak has vowed to lean on the running game this year and I believe him. Kubiak is the guy that made Arian Foster and Justin Forsett stars for their respective clubs! Anderson was the best running back in terms of Fantasy the last five games of last season and has serious upside this year as well.
Anderson has the benefit of a high-powered offense to take some of the heat off – he will score often and could be a top 3 Fantasy producer when all is said and done.
8. DeMarco Murray PHI
Reigning NFL rushing champion has a little competition for touches this year – otherwise he may be a top 5 pick. Ryan Matthews and Darren Sproles threaten to cut into Murray’s touches for sure and his inclusion into Chip Kelly’s offense is not without its question marks.
Take Murray knowing he’ll give you 1300 combined yards and hope that Ryan Matthews sustains one of his predictable injuries.
9. LeSean McCoy BUF –
Life in Buffalo will certainly be different than in Phili! That said Buffalo is a run-first team that will definitely utilize McCoy in the running and passing game. McCoy could hit 1500 yards this year but in a low-powered offense may have a tough time reaching 10 TDs.
The talent is there but I’m not sure the team is quite good enough to keep defense from stuffing the box against this guy. Still, McCoy is an elite talent that should produce top 10 Fantasy numbers.
10. Jeremy Hill CIN
Emerging star has a chance for 10-12 TDs this year although he may not see the field on third down. Hill has it all – elusiveness, power and speed to spare. He had 1,124 yards and 9 TDs last year with only 222 touches – 5.1 yards per carry. The Cincinnati coaches are no dummies – don’t be surprised to see Hill end the season with top 5 numbers. He has a ton of upside and may be some of the best value in Fantasy this upcoming season.
