RB Duds

 

Miller, Lamar - HOU

Miller, Lamar

Miller was known for his terrific efficiency during his four seasons in Miami (4.59 YPC, 1.64 YAC), but his effectiveness dipped significantly in a larger role with Houston the past two seasons (3.88 YPC, 1.51 YAC). He has still managed top-20 fantasy seasons both years with the Texans, but that has been mostly a product of volume. Miller ranked in the top 11 in touches and top 14 in scrimmage yards both seasons, though he was running behind Alfred Blue down the stretch last season. Miller remains atop the depth chart in an offense that was scoring at will when Deshaun Watson was healthy last season, so there's some upside here. Of course, it's also possible second-year D'Onta Foreman seizes control of lead back duties. Miller is best viewed as a flex.


Henry, Derrick - TEN

Henry, Derrick

After spending the first two seasons of his career as DeMarco Murray's caddy, the 6-foot-3, 247-pound Henry is poised for a promotion in 2018. The former second-round pick is expected to be the thunder to Dion Lewis' lightning, which will allow the big man a significant workload on early downs and at the goal line. Henry has yet to eclipse 187 touches in a season, but his efficiency has been terrific. Despite facing an average of 7.1 in-box defenders (third highest) on 286 career carries, Henry sports a 4.31 YPC and 2.25 YAC. The latter is fifth best in the league during that span, and his 2.53 mark in 2017 ranked third. Henry is unlikely to do much as a receiver, so he's more valuable in non-PPR as a fringe RB2.


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.


GORE, FRANK - BUF

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.


Hyde, Carlos - KC

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.


Murray, Latavius - NO

Murray, Latavius

Over the past two seasons, only Ezekiel Elliott (22) has exceeded Murray's 20 rushing touchdowns. Murray has ranked in the top 20 at the position in touches and top 25 in fantasy points each of the past three seasons. Murray's career rushing efficiency hasn't been great (4.11 YPC, 1.74 YAC), but he has finished in the 85th percentile in average box defenders faced during three of his four seasons. Murray was a top-12 fantasy running back after Dalvin Cook's injury last season, but with Cook back in the mix, Murray will revert to backup duties. He showed that he has RB1 upside as a handcuff in 2017, but Murray won't have standalone value as long as Cook is active.
