Martin, Doug - OAK

Martin, Doug

To say Martin has had his ups and downs would be an understatement. In the two seasons in which he appeared in all 16 of Tampa Bay's regular-season games (2012, 2015), he ranked in the top four at the position in scrimmage yards and fantasy points while averaging 4.7 YPC. Martin missed at least five games (total of 28) in each of his other four campaigns, failing to post a fantasy season better than 54th and averaging a miserable 3.3 YPC. In the past two campaigns, Martin's 2.9 YPC is worst among the 70 backs who have more than 110 carries. Now 29, Martin has signed on with the Raiders and makes for an underwhelming handcuff behind Marshawn Lynch.


Hyde, Carlos - CLE

Hyde, Carlos

Hyde signed with Cleveland following four up-and-down seasons in San Francisco. The 2013 second-round pick posted terrific 4.39 YPC and 2.17 YAC marks during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, but running less from the shotgun and seeing more in-box defenders last season, Hyde's YPC dipped to 3.9 and his YAC to 1.8. He still managed to finish eighth in fantasy, thanks to the position's 11th-most carries (240) and fifth-most targets (85). He ranked second in the NFL in both OTD (12.6) and carries inside the opponent's five-yard line (16). With Duke Johnson Jr. and second-round pick Nick Chubb also in the mix in Cleveland, Hyde is a poor bet for consistent touches and could end up buried on the depth chart all together. He's worth no more than a late-round flier.


GORE, FRANK - MIA

GORE, FRANK

Gore has been one of the best backs in football over the past decade or so, racking up 14,026 yards and 77 touchdowns on 3,226 carries in 13 seasons with the 49ers and Colts. Now 35 years old, Gore heads back home to Miami, where he'll compete with 24-year-old Kenyan Drake for touches. Although Gore has ranked in the top 12 at the position in each of the past seven seasons, his rushing efficiency has dropped off dramatically in recent years (3.77 YPC since 2015). At this stage of his career, Gore is more likely to be a thorn in the side of those invested in Drake than he is to be a fantasy-relevant producer.


BLOUNT, LEGARRETTE - DET

BLOUNT, LEGARRETTE

Over the past decade, 76 running backs have carried the ball at least 550 times. None has a better yards-after-contact mark than Blount's 2.27. The big man finished second in that category last season (2.61 YAC) and has finished in the top four four times in his career. Blount has also ranked top-10 in carries inside the opponent's 5-yard line in each of the past three seasons. Although he offers the bare minimum as a receiver (he has never caught more than 15 passes in eight seasons), Blount is an effective and underrated rusher. Expect him to handle some early-down and goal-line work in Detroit, though Theo Riddick and rookie Kerryon Johnson will also be busy. Blount has a shot at flex value in non-PPR leagues.


STEWART, JONATHAN - NYG

STEWART, JONATHAN

Stewart heads to the Big Apple after 10 seasons with the Panthers. Now 31 years old, Stewart figures to reprise his role as an early-down innings-eater, but he won't be on the field much with second overall pick Saquon Barkley in the mix. Stewart hasn't appeared in 16 games since 2011 but has ranked in the top 20 among backs in carries each of the past three seasons. Since 2015, he ranks 14th in rushing yards (2,493), ninth in rushing touchdowns (21) and third in carries inside the opponent's five-yard line (38). A non-factor as a receiver, Stewart ranks 65th at the position with 53 targets during that span. Stewart is no more than a handcuff to Barkley.


McKinnon, Jerick - SF

McKinnon, Jerick

McKinnon is heading west and will replace Carlos Hyde as San Francisco's feature back. Though the 5-foot-9, 212-pound McKinnon is a bit smaller than Hyde ' and not quite as effective a runner ' he's an elite athlete and a better receiver. McKinnon never exceeded 159 carries in a season with Minnesota, and he has averaged 3.59 YPC (worst), including 1.50 after contact (second worst), on 309 carries during the past two seasons. McKinnon's receiving volume has been terrific, but his efficiency has been similarly weak (7.2 YPR). Those numbers are alarming, but McKinnon is now one of the highest-paid backs in the league and is expected to be a workhorse back in Kyle Shanahan's offense. That role should easily allow RB2 production.


Crowell, Isaiah - NYJ

Crowell, Isaiah

Crowell joins the Jets after spending his first four seasons as Cleveland's primary early-down and short-yardage back. Crowell has finished in the top 25 in carries and rushing yards each of the past three seasons, though he ranked near the bottom of the league in YAC each of his first three campaigns before improving to a strong 2.0 mark in 2017. He also has contributed more than you probably realize as a receiver, ranking in the top 30 at the position in targets each of the past two seasons. The 25-year-old back figures to join Bilal Powell as the Jets' primary two backs with second-year Elijah McGuire also in the mix. It's a fantasy nightmare, especially in an offense likely to struggle, limiting Crowell to the flex conversation.


Lewis, Dion - TEN

Lewis, Dion

Lewis -- a fifth-round pick in 2011 -- bounced around the league before bursting onto the NFL scene with New England in 2015. He took his game to a new level last season, finishing as fantasy's No. 13 RB, while setting career highs in carries (180), scrimmage yards (1,110) and offensive touchdowns (nine). Over the past three seasons, Lewis has posted a 4.82 YPC and 2.33 YAC (both are fourth best). Lewis' durability is a major concern, as he has appeared in only 54 of a possible 112 regular-season games during his seven-year career. In Tennessee, the 5-foot-8, 195-pound Lewis will be the lightning to 6-foot-3, 247-pound Derrick Henry's thunder. Both backs figure to play significant roles, with Lewis handling change-of-pace carries and primary passing-game duties. It's enough to allow flex numbers.


Hill, Jeremy - NE

Hill, Jeremy

In his first three NFL seasons, Hill's number of carries have been 222, 223 and 222 and his rushing touchdowns have been nine, 13 and nine. While the volume has been consistent, the efficiency has not. Hill was terrific as a rookie, registering 5.1 YPC (sixth best), including 2.3 after contact (fifth). Over the past two seasons, he has averaged 3.7 YPC, including 1.5 after contact, both of which rank second-worst among 42 backs with at least 220 carries in that span. Hill has been a top-22 fantasy back each of his first three years in the NFL, but he has also been top 10 in carries inside the opponent's 5-yard line each season. He offers very little as a receiver, his effectiveness has dwindled and he's no longer the favorite for lead back duties following the selection of Joe Mixon in April's draft. Hill is no more than a late-round flier.


IVORY, CHRIS - BUF

IVORY, CHRIS

Ivory joins the Bills after racking up 4,852 yards and 28 touchdowns on 1,112 carries during stints with the Saints, Jets and Jaguars over the past eight seasons. Ivory was once one of the league's more efficient backs, but he has struggled to reach 3.59 YPC (1.82 YAC) the past two seasons. Ivory also adds little as a receiver, having posted more than 21 receptions in a season only once, and he has struggled with durability, appearing in all 16 of his team's games just once. Ivory has no standalone value but is a sneaky handcuff target as LeSean McCoy's primary backup in run-heavy Buffalo.


Rawls, Thomas - NYJ

Rawls, Thomas

Rawls' career has been quite the roller coaster thus far. He went undrafted out of Central Michigan in 2015, but Seattle scooped him up and watched him produce 830 yards and four touchdowns on 147 rookie-season carries. That 5.6 YPC was tops in the NFL, and his 2.7 post-contact average ranked third. A laundry list of injuries limited Rawls to nine games last season and, although his 3.2 YPC during the regular season was ugly, he did explode for 195 yards on 38 postseason attempts. Rawls is only 23 years old but figures to open 2017 behind Eddie Lacy and passing-down specialist C.J. Prosise. Rawls' flashes of upside make him worth a late-round flier.
