Tier 8
39Duke Johnson, CLEJohnson may play some slot receiver, adding to his potential targets.
40James White, NEPick your poison, I mean... pick your Patriots RB. Is it White next man up? Or Dion Lewis? Or Rex Burkhead? No one really knows. White is the next best bet.
41Darren Sproles, PHII am very cool on LeGarrette Blount's possibly contribution to the Eagles, but that doesn't also mean Sproles will light up the scoreboard. He will get some receptions but can't handle many carries at this point in his career.
Tier 9
42Darren McFadden, DALEzekiel Elliott is currently suspended 6 games. While his shelf life might be short, DMac should be an every week starter those weeks working as primary ball carrier behind the Cowboys offensive line.
43Jamaal Williams, GBOpens training camp as the backup to starter Ty Montgomery.
