RB Nagging Injuries/Suspensions

 

Martin, Doug - TB

Martin, Doug

A three-game suspension and no guarantee of playing time crush the Fantasy expectations for Doug Martin. In order for him to bounce back he'll first have to unseat Jacquizz Rodgers as the main running back for the Bucs, which won't be easy if Rodgers plays well in Weeks 1 through 3. Then Martin will have to play like he did in 2015, when he averaged 4.9 yards per run and 8.2 yards per catch. Perhaps he'll get the chance -- his coaches and teammates seem satisfied with how Martin looked this offseason. He even claimed he's a stronger person after going through some personal problems. With optimism starting to creep back in, Martin is looking more like a bargain than an afterthought. Round 6 is when running back-hungry Fantasy owners will chase D-Mart, potentially landing him and Jacquizz Rodgers within 30-to-40 picks of each other. That would lock up a big dose of the Bucs backfield, which isn't a bad plan when comes to Fantasy roster building. 


Bernard, Giovani - CIN

Bernard, Giovani

Giovani Bernard is working his way back from a torn left ACL. Whether or not he ever regains his form is an entirely different issue. Typically Bernard is a lock for 1,000 total yards over the course of a season, but he has just eight games with 10-plus Fantasy points in his last 26 tries. He's also going to suffer a decline in touches with the addition of rookie Joe Mixon. There's a real good chance Bernard remains locked into a part-time role for however long he plays now that Mixon and Jeremy Hill will compete for playing time. Additionally, the Bengals' offensive line isn't expected to be as good as it was last year, which could further limit Bernard's numbers. Don't take him unless it's with one of your last few picks. 


Dixon, Kenneth - BAL

Dixon, Kenneth

Dixon was slated to miss the first four games with a suspension, but a knee injury will keep him out all year. This means that Woodhead and West both get a bump in your fantasy rankings.


Elliott, Ezekiel - DAL

Elliott, Ezekiel

Ezekiel Elliott lived up to the hype as a rookie in 2016, and the Cowboys and Fantasy owners are hoping there's no sophomore slump waiting for him this year. Elliott took advantage of running behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL last season and had 322 carries for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns and 32 catches for 363 yards and one touchdown in 15 games (he sat out Week 17 to rest for the playoffs). Elliott finished as the No. 2 Fantasy running back in standard leagues and scored double digits in Fantasy points in every game he played, including seven with at least 20 points in standard formats. He should continue to post dominant stats this season, and he's a contender for the No. 1 overall pick in all Fantasy leagues. At worst, Elliott should be one of the first three players drafted in standard formats and among the first five in PPR. He also could easily be the No. 1 player drafted in dynasty leagues because at 22, in this offense, he could be the best running back in the NFL for the foreseeable future.


PETERSON, ADRIAN - NO

PETERSON, ADRIAN

The Saints signed ex-Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to compete for playing time in training camp this summer. For Peterson to regain his amazing Fantasy form, he'll have to first unseat Mark Ingram as the lead back, then defy age and experience. Peterson is 32 years old with 2,781 career touches. Typically running backs with that much wear-and-tear tend to underperform and get injured, which is exactly what happened to Peterson last year when he missed 13 games and averaged 1.9 yards per run when he did play. Chances are the Saints signed him to help shoulder some of the rushing workload, perhaps the 9.7 touches per game Tim Hightower had last year. That would lead to some very modest stats and basically make Peterson a touchdown-or-bust running back. Maybe he scores five or six times this season, including Week 1 against his old team, but trusting him to be a reliable Fantasy starter is unnecessarily risky. Expect some goofball in every draft to reach for Peterson this summer, but if he's still available in Round 8 and you want to roll the dice on him, it's not too steep of a price.
