RB 2nd Year Players

 

Jacobs, Josh - LV

Jacobs, Josh

Josh Jacobs has the chance to be a breakout candidate in his second season, and he's worth drafting as early as Round 2 in all leagues. Jacobs had a solid rookie campaign in 2019 when he averaged 14.1 PPR points per game and scored at least 16 PPR points in five outings. He missed three games with a shoulder injury, but he should be fine for the start of the year. And there's even the chance his role in the passing game could expand with DeAndre Washington gone, although Jalen Richard and rookie Lynn Bowden Jr. remain a roadblock for that. Jacobs is the focal point of the Raiders' offense, and he should be a standout Fantasy running back this year. His value is higher in non-PPR leagues than PPR, but Jacobs should be selected in the top 30 overall picks in all formats.


Montgomery, David - CHI

Montgomery, David

The excitement in drafting David Montgomery last season has morphed into trepidation this season. Ranked poorly in PFF's elusiveness and breakaway run metrics in 2019, Montgomery slogged his way to just over 1,000 total yards on 267 touches thanks to a disappointing offensive line and a lack of burst. He ended his season with a nice enough five-game stretch averaging 4.3 yards per carry, but his physical style was capped by tough defenses who dared the Bears to throw. The same blueprint could be followed this season, especially since Chicago's quarterback situation isn't noticeably better, nor is its offensive line. Slated to be the primary back to begin the year, you should be warned that Montgomery could see his playing time reduced if he's not putting up numbers. That's typically a risk with any back you draft in Round 6 as a low-end No. 2 option/high-end flex.


Singletary, Devin - BUF

Singletary, Devin

Devin Singletary has the chance for a big year in his sophomore campaign in 2020, and he's worth drafting in Round 4 or 5 in all leagues. Singletary is poised to be the lead back in Buffalo this season, although he should share touches with rookie Zack Moss. Still, Singletary should build off a quality rookie year. Singletary had seven games with at least 14 total touches in 2019, and he averaged 12.6 PPR points over that span. He also had six games with at least three catches in his final 10 outings, so he should be a viable part of the passing game. Over his final six games, Singletary had at least 16 total touches in each outing, including three games with at least 22 total touches. Moss will take away touches, including potential work at the goal line, but Singletary should be considered a No. 2 running back in all formats going into the season.


Johnson, Ty - DET

Johnson, Ty

Johnson saw a handful of touches behind Kerryon Johnson and Bo Scarborough, though he was barely seen in the contest. Encouragingly, he saw some work while JD McKissic sat on the bench, though Johnson's role on this team hasn't been beneficial to fantasy owners all season. That trend won't be bucked in Week 17.


Armstead, Ryquell - JAC

Armstead, Ryquell

Ryquell Armstead is the handcuff for Leonard Fournette and should be drafted in the double-digit rounds. Armstead didn't see much opportunity but did post 85 total yards and a score when Fournette missed Week 17. If Fournette missed an extended period of time, Armstead should be a solid No. 2 running back in Fantasy. There have been rumors that Jacksonville is trying to trade Fournette and that could open up a much bigger role for Armstead. In Dynasty he's a buy because this could be Fournette's last year in Jacksonville.


Pollard, Tony - DAL

Pollard, Tony

Tony Pollard will again be the No. 2 running back in Dallas this season behind Ezekiel Elliott, and he's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues. Pollard should be selected as the handcuff for Elliott if you want to guarantee to have the Cowboys backfield locked up. Only two running backs had carries in Dallas last season with Elliott and Pollard, but Elliott dominated touches. Still, Pollard flashed his upside, and he could be a star if Elliott missed any time.


Gaskin, Myles - MIA

Gaskin, Myles

Myles Gaskin is expected to compete for a role in Miami's backfield this season, but he should not be drafted in any Fantasy leagues. Gaskin is already behind Jordan Howard and Matt Breida on the depth chart for the Dolphins, and those two guys should dominate touches when healthy. Gaskin could be competing with Kalen Ballage and Patrick Laird for a job, but none of them are expected to get consistent touches this season barring an injury. Gaskin has minimal Fantasy value in all leagues.


Harris, Damien - NE

Harris, Damien

Harris is a rock-solid running back and one who will make coaches very happy. He runs downhill and gets what’s blocked, sometimes more. With Sony Michel dealing with a chronic knee injury, the Patriots likely grabbed Harris as high-priced insurance in the third-round. Damien Harris currently sports the coveted title of “cheapest New England running back to draft in fantasy,” and in April’s NFL Draft, he was only picked 17 spots after the Rams’ Darrell Henderson (who no one is sleeping on at this point). The Patriots maximize the skills of their players, so Harris should produce when called upon, as they continue to lean on the run and save Tom Brady for another inevitable playoff run. Remember that Harris beat out Josh Jacobs in college, so expecting the same against Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead in the pros isn’t a stretch, especially considering those veterans’ checkered injury histories.


Hill, Justice - BAL

Hill, Justice

It's believed that Justice Hill will begin his career as a change-of-pace running back for the Ravens. For a squad that wants to run as much as possible, that's welcomed news. Hill was a featured back at Oklahoma State, consistently averaging at least 5.5 yards per rush and finding the end zone 31 times in 36 games. He did this with his fleet feet and juke moves, accelerating to burn past slower defenders and cutting to find room to run. He showed enough as a receiver (49 catches in three years) to be useful in passing situations, too. Where he's lacking is in size - his slight frame hurts him when it comes to pushing piles, breaking tackles and blocking. Odds are the Ravens will ask Hill to make an impact on 8-to-10 touches per week, marrying his speed with the rest of the burners in this run-friendly offense. Bank on him going in Round 11 or later in seasonal drafts this summer. As for long-term leagues, expect him to get taken a round sooner, while in rookie-only formats he'll get nabbed in late Round 2. The odds aren't good he'll be the Ravens' lead back one day, but it's not out of the question.


Williams, Trayveon - CIN

Williams, Trayveon

One of the draft's most underrated running back prospects found himself in one of the most road-blocked depth charts in the league in Cincinnati. Trayveon Williams was a fun player at Texas A&M, breaking out in his junior year for nearly 2,000 total yards and 19 total touchdowns. He's a fast, explosive running back with very nice hands and better-than-expected physicality for a guy his size (5-8, 206). No one's drafting him with the idea that he'll overtake Joe Mixon one day, but it might not take long for him to settle in as the primary backup for the Bengals ahead of fellow rookie Rodney Anderson and veteran Giovani Bernard. He should be stashed with a late-round choice in long-term formats and rookie-only drafts.


Anderson, Rodney - CIN

Anderson, Rodney

If not for his massive injury concerns, Rodney Anderson would have been a second- or third-round pick in the draft. Instead, the Bengals nabbed him in Round 6. When he's on the field, Anderson is strong, sure-handed and able to lay a block. He lacks the explosive speed you want from a rusher, and it's unknown if he'll get it back after tearing his ACL last September. He has also fractured a vertebrae and broken his left leg. There's a chance the Bengals "redshirt" Anderson and hope he contributes in 2020. Or, if he's all set for training camp, he'll compete for a spot on the depth chart with fellow rookie Trayveon Williams and veteran Giovani Bernard. Either way, Anderson doesn't offer much excitement. No one will draft him in seasonal leagues, but he's in consideration for one of the last picks in long-term drafts and rookie-only formats.


Sanders, Miles - PHI

Sanders, Miles

Miles Sanders showed as a rookie in 2019 that he can be a starting Fantasy running back, and he's worth drafting as a borderline No. 1 option in all leagues with a pick as early as Round 2. Over his final nine games of the season last year for the Eagles, after Jordan Howard was hurt, Sanders averaged 16.3 PPR points, including four games with at least 21 points. During that span, he had four games with at least 15 carries and eight games with at least three catches. He will share touches with Boston Scott, especially in the passing game, but Sanders should have the chance for a sensational sophomore campaign in 2020. His value is slightly higher in PPR than non-PPR leagues, but Sanders has the potential to be a top 10 Fantasy running back in all formats this year.


Love, Bryce - WAS

Love, Bryce

Washington selected rookie running back Bryce Love from Stanford in the fourth round of the NFL Draft, and he will compete for a reserve role this season. Love is coming off a torn ACL from last year, and he's hoping to be ready by training camp. This season, if healthy, Love will likely be No. 4 on the depth chart behind Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson. But Love and Guice could be Washington's tandem of running backs as early as 2020 since Peterson is near the end of his career, and Thompson is in the final year of his contract. We don't recommend drafting Love in most seasonal leagues, but he is worth a late-round flier in rookie-only drafts.


Mattison, Alexander - MIN

Mattison, Alexander

Even though Alexander Mattison was M.I.A. when Fantasy managers needed him late last season, he's still the reliable backup in Minnesota's backfield and should get strong consideration from those Fantasy managers who spend an early pick on Dalvin Cook. Mattison only had four games with 10-plus touches as a rookie (all Vikings wins by 10-plus points) but averaged at least 4.5 yards per rush in eight of 13 games and began contributing in the pass game toward the end of the year. The reality is that Mattison is at best a bye-week replacement so long as Cook is active, but if anything were to happen to Cook, a massive workload would seemingly fall into the second-year running back's lap. That's why every Fantasy manager will start considering Mattison with a pick in Round 9, but those who take Cook in Round 1 might want to lock him up starting in Round 8.


Ollison, Qadree - ATL

Ollison, Qadree

The Falcons drafted Pitt running back Qadree Ollison with the hope he'd eventually become a good complement to their run game, similar to how they drafted Ito Smith last year. It's unlikely Ollison will make a major impact in 2019, but the one-cut runner has good size and power to rumble between the tackles. With the long-term outlook in mind, Ollison is only worth a late pick in rookie-only drafts.


Scarlett, Jordan - CAR

Scarlett, Jordan

Jordan Scarlett does have some skills that the Panthers might eventually lean on him for. A physical specimen with the blocking skills to match, Scarlett used quickness and aggression to power through defenses in 2016 and 2018, totaling 11 rushing touchdowns and 1,665 rush yards. He didn't play in 2017 because he was accused of participating in a credit card fraud scandal (the charges were dropped). He also has a marijuana possession misdemeanor in his past that cost him a game. Even if he were an angel off the field, Scarlett lacks the speed and nuanced receiving skills to be a dangerous every-down back. He'd need volume to be effective in Fantasy, and that's not going to happen with Christian McCaffrey starting for the Panthers. Not worth taking in seasonal leagues, Scarlett only registers as a late-round choice in long-term formats and rookie-only drafts.


Henderson, Darrell - LAR

Henderson, Darrell

Darrell Henderson will compete with Cam Akers for playing time in the Rams offense, keeping him on the Fantasy radar but not exactly in excellent standing. The prevailing thought is that the Rams wouldn't have drafted Akers if Henderson had played better as a rookie. Henderson did prove to be explosive, capturing 42.4% of his total 2019 yardage over five plays of 10-plus yards, but there were a lot of runs into his O-line's butts. There is hope for Henderson rebounding in his second season, and if Akers gets off to a slow start, Henderson could really shine. There's also a chance both lose short-yardage work to Malcolm Brown, too. Ultimately, Henderson is worth a pick after 90th overall as a reserve Fantasy running back with a shot at being useful this season.


Homer, Travis - SEA

Homer, Travis

The Seahawks selected rookie running back Travis Homer in the sixth round of the NFL Draft from Miami, and he's expected to compete for a reserve role this year. Homer, at best, will be No. 3 on the depth chart behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, and he will compete with C.J. Prosise, J.D. McKissic and Bo Scarbrough for that job. Keep an eye on his role in training camp, but Homer is not worth selecting in most seasonal leagues, including rookie-only drafts.
