Tier 1
1David Johnson, ARIUsually drafted first overall, my only small concern is Johnson's aging QB. If Carson Palmer goes down or is plain terrible, things could unravel quickly in the desert.
2Le'Veon Bell, PITHasn't signed his franchise tender yet so he isn't obligated to show up for training camp, which is a little concerning. There is some history of players holding out of camp and getting injured early in the season, but we will see how long this goes on before worrying too much about it.
Tier 2
3Melvin Gordon, LACThe anti-Ajayi? Gordon was ridiculously consistent last year scoring or topping 100 yards in 10 of 13 games played. Now entering his third season it is a good time to bet Gordon raises his game to the Jamaal Charles comparisons he received as a rookie draft prospect.
4Jay Ajayi, MIAOnly topped 100 yards four times last season, but three of those were 200 plus, which is pretty weird. Bottom line Adam Gase is one of the best offensives coaches in the league right now, and I feel he will ride Ajayi hard this season. Expect more 25 touch games and that production to even out more week-to-week.
