2017 Fantasy RankingsOverall # 12 · RB # 6 (Tier 2)

|4||Jay Ajayi, MIA||Only 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.|
|5||Ezekiel Elliott, DAL||Zeke gets 6 games as of me writing this. He can appeal and we might see a reduction but for now assuming 6 games. That is big. Would still love to have him and willing to hold and be patient I am not dropping him too, too much. Still ranked a top 10 RB considering his projected PPG when he is active.|
|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.|
