RB Duds

 

White, James - NE

White, James

James White should again be one of the better pass-catching running backs in the NFL, but he has a new quarterback this season, which lowers his Fantasy value. With Tom Brady gone from New England, White is now a No. 3 running back at best, even in PPR. We'll see who the new starter is for the Patriots, but Brady and White had amazing rapport, which helped White score at least 11 PPR points in 11 of 15 games last season and be a consistent threat in the passing game for years. His value is lower in non-PPR leagues since he has just four games with double digits in carries in his past four seasons, and he's never rushed for more than 425 yards in any year of his six-year career. In PPR leagues, White is worth drafting as early as Round 6. In non-PPR leagues, White shouldn't be drafted before Round 8.


Conner, James - PIT

Conner, James

Steelers running backs have been gold for Fantasy managers in the past, but James Conner is far from a sure thing. Last year's unavailability (six games missed) and inconsistency (seven games with under 15 PPR points/12 non-PPR points) cost him some standing in Fantasy. His lack of productivity also may have changed how the Steelers view him. Conner has never played 16 games and hasn't quite been as good since suffering a leg injury late in 2018. Naturally, there's upside for Conner to be the best running back in The Burgh, but it will mean rushing and receiving efficiently and staying healthy while fending off the likes of rookie Anthony McFarland. That seems like quite a bit to count on. If others overdraft Conner in your leagues, they're doing you a favor - don't look his way until Round 4 at the absolute earliest.


Jones, Aaron - GB

Jones, Aaron

Changes to the Packers' running back unit have altered the perception of Aaron Jones for Fantasy. Jones didn't miss a game last year, helping him total 49 catches and average 7.0 yards per target (Christian McCaffrey averaged 0.1 yards more). He also dominated goal-line snaps, scoring 10 of his 19 touchdowns from 3 yards or closer. Yet, the Packers spent a second-round pick on bulldozing power-back A.J. Dillon, a Derrick Henry clone who is better suited to work the goal line than Jones. He alone could cap the number of touchdowns Jones scores, and if Dillon or fellow veteran Jamaal Williams play hot out of the gate, Jones' carries are sure to shrink. It's not an ideal situation for Jones, who's entering a contract year and still must prove he's over earlier knee injuries. Please draft Jones with caution - a Round 2 pick might be too steep a price to pay for a runner who might end up sharing with two teammates.


Johnson, Kerryon - DET

Johnson, Kerryon

Despite turning 23 years old before the start of the 2020 season, it's beginning to look like Kerryon Johnson will be a flop for Fantasy. After two straight seasons ended early by injuries and underwhelming production, the Lions spent a second-round pick on rookie D'Andre Swift, seemingly squashing any chance of Johnson becoming a heavy volume dynamo. Johnson may still see some work, including early on in the season, but considering he rarely had 20 touches (just six times in his career), he doesn't offer much excitement. Johnson is a decent No. 3 or bench running back worthy of a pick after 90th overall on Draft Day.


INGRAM, MARK - BAL

INGRAM, MARK

Mark Ingram was and still should be a good Fantasy running back when playing alongside Lamar Jackson, but the clock is ticking on how much longer he'll have the chance after the Ravens drafted Ohio State's J.K. Dobbins. Suddenly, the 30-year-old with 1,858 career touches could be looking at his final year with the Ravens, not to mention a lighter workload. The odds were always against Ingram repeating his 2019 numbers - he scored once every 20.2 rushes and once every 5.2 receptions. Doing that again is unfathomable, especially since his playing time won't exceed the 52% of snaps he played with Jackson a season ago. Still, he's a threat for lots of touchdowns and should still get 15-plus touches, which he had nine of 15 times in 2019. Take him as close as you can to the end of Round 5 with designs on landing Dobbins in Round 9 (Round 10 if you're gutsy/lucky) to lock up the Ravens backfield.


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, which limits his fantasy upside.


Gordon, Melvin - DEN

Gordon, Melvin

Melvin Gordon signed with the Broncos this offseason as a free agent, and he's expected to share touches with Phillip Lindsay. But even with his new team, Gordon remains a quality No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues. He's worth drafting no later than Round 4. Gordon should be the lead back in Denver, even with Lindsay there. The commitment to Gordon isn't steep with a two-year deal worth $16 million, including $13.5 million guaranteed. But Gordon is expected to handle the lead role over Lindsay for the Broncos, especially at the goal line and in passing situations. Gordon had a down year in 2019 with the Chargers. After holding out for four games, he averaged just 14.2 PPR points per game, which was his lowest average since 2015.


Gurley, Todd - ATL

Gurley, Todd

Touchdowns saved Todd Gurley's Fantasy value in 2019, and they might do so again in 2020. That's because the Falcons have consistently registered a bunch of running back rushes both in the red zone (at least 43 per year over the past five) and inside the 10-yard line (at least 20 per year over the past five). Not that those numbers would make Gurley swoon - he's averaged 57 red-zone carries and 32 totes inside the 10 over his past three seasons in Sean McVay's offense. If Gurley doesn't share the ball much and if he stays healthy, collecting north of 10 touchdowns should be within his reach. Those are big ifs, as is his ability to rack up yardage after barely topping 1,050 total yards in 2019. Gurley appears to be less explosive following his knee issues from over a year ago. It makes his touchdown production that much more important. Gurley can be had as late as 30th overall, a decent discount compared to past years, but it's not without risk. He's clearly not the No. 1 running back he once was, even if he's on a team that could use him just as much as his previous team did.


Bell, Le'Veon - KC

Bell, Le

Le'Veon Bell and Fantasy managers are hoping his second year with the Jets will go better than the first one. He's still someone to consider as a No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues, and he will likely be drafted no later than Round 3 in all formats, with his value higher in PPR. In 2019, his first season in New York, Bell struggled. He had career lows in yards per carry (3.2) and Fantasy points per game (13.5 in PPR). His four total touchdowns were also a career worst for any season he's played in more than six games. The Jets improved their offensive line this offseason and didn't add any significant competition for touches - although rookie Lamical Perine could be worth a handcuff with a late-round pick - so Bell should again be their lead rusher. The good thing is Bell still had 311 total touches in 2019, and hopefully that will remain the range he's in again this season. Don't think of Bell as an elite Fantasy option again. He should no longer be considered a 1st or even 2nd round option in fantasy.
