2017 Fantasy RankingsOverall # 15 · RB # 8 (Tier 3)
RB, Los Angeles Rams
Height 6'1" Weight 227 DOB 1994-08-03 Age 23
|6||LeSean McCoy, BUF||It was a big bounce back year after a rough start to his career in Buffalo in 2015. In line for a lot of carries and he is super talented, but low expectations for this team overall has me a bit skittish drafting McCoy. Quite possibly leads the team in receptions with Sammy Watkins trade.|
|7||DeMarco Murray, TEN||Talented veteran who posted big numbers in the past, on a run-first team trending upward, what is not to like? The wear and tear for one thing, and young Derrick Henry nipping at his heels for another. There is opportunity for both to succeed here in a shared backfield, and Henry even helps Murray stay healthy. Don't be afraid to add him, but understand the risks.|
|8||Todd Gurley, LAR||This was not pretty last season after he made things looks pretty easy as a rookie. A new coaching staff provides some optimism Gurley's production will land more in line with his talent.|
|9||Jordan Howard, CHI||This is similar to the McCoy story, but likely worse as the Bears are in the throws of a total rebuild. Still the team wasn't much good last year and he hammered out 1,600 yards and still has fresh legs entering only his second season. A buy at the right price.|
|10||Devonta Freeman, ATL||Freeman was a great pick last year, an undervalued RB in a time share where more fantasy guys preferred to draft teammate Tevin Coleman. The Falcons and Freeman himself almost certainly overachieved last year, and OC Kyle Shanahan is gone. Do you really want to take the risk on a repeat at this price? Look to another position at this point in your draft.|
