RB Duds

 

Gurley, Todd - LAR

Gurley, Todd

You could write thousands of words for or against Gurley and we probably will this off-season. But the case for is pretty simple: When he's been right he's been the most valuable player in Fantasy. Even last year he finished as the No. 1 back in non-PPR scoring despite playing just 14 games. In 2017 he outscored every other player at the position by four points per game in that format. The case for Gurley is you may just be drafting the best player in Fantasy Football after the first overall pick. Health is the big issue, of course. We can't say for certain Gurley has arthritis in his knee. We can't say anything for certain because of how secretive the team and the player have been about his injury, or lack thereof. What we do know is the Rams gave him four carries in the Conference Finals against the Saints, and after two weeks of rest he only touched the ball 11 times in the Super Bowl. Something wasn't right, and we don't know if it's better. There's more than one area of concern here. He could have a chronic problem that completely derails his career; his knee could be weakened, priming him for a more serious injury in 2019; or he could be fine and the Rams could decide to limit him in the first half of the season in hopes of keeping him that way. All three of those possibilities are speculation, which is all we're left with at this stage. The fact that the Rams traded up to draft Darrell Henderson in the third round doesn't make you feel any better about this situation. The one thing we can say for certain is that if you're the type of player who doesn't want to lose his league in the first round, you're probably taking someone other than Todd Gurley.


Fournette, Leonard - JAC

Fournette, Leonard

Despite the drama in Jacksonville, battling injuries and almost no threat of a passing game, Fournette has averaged 93 yards per game and scored 16 touchdowns in his first 21 games. The problem is that he has only played 21 games in his first two seasons, and the Jaguars just hired an offensive coordinator (John DeFelippo) who got fired because his former team thought he was calling too many pass plays. If the injuries weren't enough of a concern, the Jaguars legitimately considered cutting ties with Fournette in the off-season. The selection of Ryquell Armstead could also mean the Jaguars want to be prepared in case they do tire of Fournette. There's a very low floor here and there may not be much of a ceiling if the offensive line is as bad as it was last year.


Cohen, Tarik - CHI

Cohen, Tarik

Cohen took his game to a new level in 2018, increasing his catch rate, yards per carry and yards per reception. He even got into the end zone on a more regular basis. Then the Bears jettisoned Jordan Howard to Philadelphia. So they settled on Cohen as the more productive back and want to see him on the field more often, right?. Not so fast! A feature role isn't likely, although he was the No. 11 back in 2018 with just 170 touches. That sort of production is not sustainable, which gives Cohen a very low floor. He's 5-foot-6 and weighs 180 pounds. That doesn't stop him from dominating in his scatback role, but it probably does prevent him from seeing 250 touches. If it doesn't then Mike Davis and David Montgomery will. Both backs are well-suited for an early-down role and there's already been speculation in Chicago that Cohen could actually see fewer carries, but more targets, in 2019. That should make you leery of Cohen in non-PPR.


Lindsay, Phillip - DEN

Lindsay, Phillip

Lindsay was phenomenal as a rookie, averaging 5.4 yards per carry, catching 75 percent of his targets and scoring 10 touchdowns. He showed big-play ability with three carries that went for more than 40 yards and had success inside the red zone as well with five touchdowns on six carries inside the 5. The Broncos were very successful running the football in 2018 and Lindsay was a big reason why. He still hasn't fully recovered from his wrist injury suffered at the end of the season, which only highlights the injury concern for a smaller back like Lindsay. It also seems very likely he'll remain in a committee; he only had three games last season with more than 15 carries. A non-workhorse on what looks like a below-average offense has to be remarkably efficient to be a top-15 running back. Lindsay was that in 2018, but it's a little scary counting on that again this year.


PETERSON, ADRIAN - WAS

PETERSON, ADRIAN

Adrian Peterson is back with Washington this season, and he will work in tandem with Derrius Guice. Rookie Bryce Love could also get in the mix for touches. AP had a surprising and solid campaign in 2018, and he scored at least 12 PPR points in six games. We'll see how Guice and Peterson are used in training camp, and that should give you an idea of how to value Peterson. Our suggestion is to draft Peterson no sooner than Round 9 or 10 and hope for the best.


Howard, Jordan - PHI

Howard, Jordan

Howard could be just as good in Philadelphia as he's been in Chicago. Howard has not had fewer than 270 touches any season in Chicago. Josh Adams led the Eagles with 127 touches last season. The problem is that Howard failed to do as much as expected with all of those carries in 2018. Since Doug Pederson arrived in Philadelphia, no running back has had even 200 touches in this offense. That limits his upside. But what really hurts is the team drafting Miles Sanders, which could eliminate Howard's floor as well. We expect him to be a rotational back in 2019.


MCCOY, LESEAN - KC

MCCOY, LESEAN

We're talking about a running back who will be 31 at the start of the season and just averaged 3.2 yards per carry. He only had six games with at least 15 touches and lost rushing production to Josh Allen. The Bills did add a bunch of offensive linemen, which should make that unit better, if not yet good. We won't likely ever see peak Shady again, but McCoy could bounce back to be a serviceable starter in 2019. Still, the team added Frank Gore, T.J. Yeldon and drafted Devin Singletary (whom we like a lot). We're not even sure McCoy is in the Bills' 2019 plans.
