ELITE
"These Running Backs will carry your football team plain and simple."
1. Saquon Barkley - New York Giants 1. Saquon Barkley - New York Giants
2. Alvin Kamara - New Orleans Saints - Latavius Murray will get his touches but he is no Mark Ingram and he is new to the offense.. Kamara should get the volume he was getting when Ingram missed the first 4 games last season. I am all in once again. 2. Christian McCaffrey - Carolina Panthers
3. Christian McCaffrey - Carolina Panthers 3. Joe Mixon - Cincinnati Bengals
4. Ezekiel Elliott - Dallas Cowboys 4. Alvin Kamara - New Orleans Saints
5. Melvin Gordon - Los Angeles Chargers - The recent news of Melvin Gordon’s potential holdout might drop his fantasy stock a bit for 2019 but the Chargers have a Super Bowl window they can’t afford to pass up. PAY THAT MAN! 5. Ezekiel Elliot - Dallas Cowboys
6. Le'Veon Bell - New York Jets 6. Melvin Gordon - Los Angeles Chargers
7. Nick Chubb - Cleveland Browns - Gets a full season as the starter and much more for the defense to worry about than just the RB.
SUPERS
"This set of backs can carry your team just not to the level of the tier above them, a few more carries/catches can change this for the better."
7. Dalvin Cook - Minnesota Vikings - The Vikings brought in Gary Kubiak as an offensive advisor and got some new athletic lineman to help the running game. The Dalvin breakout is on the way, stay tuned. 8. Le'Veon Bell - New York Jets
8. Joe Mixon - Cincinnati Bengals 9. Dalvin Cook - Minnesota Vikings - If he is healthy he is a top 5 fantasy RB but will he be healthy?
9. Todd Gurley - Los Angeles Rams - Gurley’s knee arthritis will have many fantasy owners pass him up in the draft. I will gladly scoop him up in round 2 of the draft and take his 16 carries per game. 250 carries of Todd Gurley will get the job done. 10. Todd Gurley - Los Angeles Rams
10. Nick Chubb - Cleveland Browns 11. Devonta Freeman - Atlanta Falcons - Will have a career year this year!!!
11. David Johnson - Arizona Cardinals - Don’t get me wrong DJ is a stud but the jury is out on his new offensive play caller Kliff Kingsbury. Can his offensive scheme translate to the NFL? It will be hard to get things going on the ground with an offensive line that’s No Bueno. 12. James Conner - Pittsburgh Steelers
13. David Johnson - Arizona Cardinals - Will be the PPR God RB! However I don't know if he will get much in the run game. True spread offense coming soon.
14. Marlon Mack - Indianapolis Colts
15. Derrick Henry - Tennessee Titans
16. Damien Williams - Kansas City Chiefs - NO Hunt, no problem. I do believe Williams is a more dynamic player than Hunt and you will see it this season if you haven't already seen it ya self!
17. Leonard Fournette - Jacksonville Jaguars
NEXT LEVEL PLAYERS
"This level of Running back is on the cusp of the "ELITE" & "SUPERS" tiers and can carry your team a few times per season."
12. Marlon Mack - Indianapolis Colts 18. Telvin Coleman - San Francisco 49ers - I'd love to say he is going to have a career year but they're so many RBs in the backfield, but he knows the offense so he will be a guy that I could see slip into the "SUPER" level by seasons end.
13. Derrick Henry - Tennessee Titans 19. Kerryon Johnson - Detroit Lions
14. Damien Williams - Kansas City Chiefs 20. Kenyan Drake - Miami Dolphins
15. Aaron Jones - Green Bay Packers 21. Chris Carson - Seattle Seahawks
16. James Conner - Pittsburgh Steelers - No love for Conner you might ask. I don’t think he gets through all 16 games healthy and I secretly believe that Jaylen Samuels is a future stud. 22. Mark Ingram - Baltimore Ravens
17. Devonta Freeman - Atlanta Falcons - If you listened to my running back bold prediction on YouTube, then you know I believe the Free will be back producing as if it was 2015-2016. Tevin Coleman is now in San Francisco and although Ito Smith flashed last season, he is not on the same caliber as Coleman or Freeman. The addition of two first round offensive lineman tells me the Falcons want to get back to running the football. 23. Aaron Jones - Green Bay Packers - Lookng forward to Jones getting his due. New coach, new scheme and a coach that will listen to his QB as to who he prefers in the backfield.
18. Leonard Fournette - Jacksonville Jaguars 24. Lamar Miller - Houston Texans
19. Phillip Lindsay - Denver Broncos 25. Sony Michel - New England Patriots
20. Chris Carson - Seattle Seahawks - Attention everyone! Invest in the Seahawks backfield this season. The Hawks led the league in rushing yards last season and finished second in carries. This run first approach will continue in 2019 so grab Carson and his teammate Rashaad Penny. 26. Phillip Lindsay - Denver Broncos
27. Josh Jacobs - Oakland Raiders
28. James White - New England Patriots
29. Tarik Cohen - Chicago Bears
PROMISING
"You have seen the potential or at the very least a glimpse."
21. David Montgomery - Chicago Bears - My favorite for offensive rookie of the year. 30. Jordan Howard - Philadelphia Eagles
22. Mark Ingram - Baltimore Ravens 31. David Montgomery - Chicago Bears - I believe he has the talent to be at the very least a next level player, but they're so many weapons to factor and couple that with the Swiss army knife in Cohen, I couldn't bring myself to do it.
23. Josh Jacobs - Oakland Raiders 32. LeSean McCoy - Buffalo Bills
24. Kenyan Drake - Miami Dolphins 33. Derrius Guice - Washington Redskins - AP still in the buiding and Chris Thompson is back and a rookie QB may be at the helm...
25. Kerryon Johnson - Detroit Lions - If only Matt Patricia would give this man more carries. The Lions will continue their RBBC approach and fantasy owners will be livid. 34. Peyton Barber - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
26. Tarik Cohen - Chicago Bears
27. James White - New England Patriots
28. Tevin Coleman - San Francisco 49ers - We know the 49ers will run the ball effectively this year but it will be a hot hand approach. Coleman, Matt Breida and Jerrick McKinnon owners will be frustrated so why not grab them all if you have space on your roster.
STATUS QUO
"You know what you are getting all-be-it nothing special."
29. Sony Michel - New England Patriots 35. Jerick McKinnon - San Francisco 49ers
30. Lamar Miller - Houston Texans 36. Austin Ekeler - Los Angeles Chargers
31. Jordan Howard - Philadelphia Eagles 37. Adrian Peterson - Washington Redskins
32. Adrian Peterson - Washington Redskins - A.P. outscores Derrius Guice this season. Peterson is not human and shouldn’t be looked at like a 34- year-old running back. 38. Rashaad Penny - Seattle Seahawks
39. Chris Thompson - Washington Redskins
COMPLEMENT
"This set of running backs typically meet or are just shy of their projections."
33. Royce Freeman - Denver Broncos 40. Latavius Murray - New Orleans Saints
34. Rashaad Penny - Seattle Seahawks 41. Miles Sanders - Philadelphia Eagles
35. Latavius Murray - New Orleans Saints 42. Kalen Ballage - Miami Dolphins
36. Derrius Guice - Washington Redskins 43. LeSean McCoy - Buffalo Bills
37. Matt Breida - San Francisco 49ers
38. Austin Ekeler - Los Angeles Chargers
39. Darrell Henderson - Los Angeles Rams - It’s always a good idea to grab handcuffs later in your drafts and Henderson is a good one to grab with Gurley’s knee issues.
WAIT AND SEE
"It’s exactly what it sounds like... Just wanna see more..."
40. LeSean McCoy - Buffalo Bills 44. Carlos Hyde - Kansas City Chiefs
41. Miles Sanders - Philadelphia Eagles 45. Royce Freeman - Denver Broncos
42. Jaylen Samuels - Pittsburgh Steelers 46. Dion Lewis - Tennessee Titans
47. Ronald Jones - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
48. Jamaal Williams - Green Bay Packers
BEST OF THE REST
"Late round fliers and watch list candidates."
43. Ito Smith - Atlanta Falcons 49. Duke Johnson - Houston Texans
44. C.J. Anderson - Detroit Lions 50. Ito Smith - Atlanta Falcons
45. Kalen Ballage - Miami Dolphins
46. Dion Lewis - Tennessee Titans
47. Nyheim Hines - Indianapolis Colts
48. Ronald Jones - Tampa Bay Buccaneers
49. Duke Johnson - Houston Texans
50. Damien Harris - New England Patriots
