MOCK DRAFT

RB Sleepers

 

Drake, Kenyan - MIA

Drake, Kenyan

Drake burst into fantasy relevance when Miami surprisingly shipped Jay Ajayi to Miami just prior to last season's trade deadline. From Week 9 on, the 2016 third-round pick averaged 5.0 YPC (2.50 YAC) on 123 rushes and caught 29 passes en route to posting the seventh-most fantasy points among backs. In two seasons, Drake is averaging 5.0 YPC (fourth best at the position) and 2.30 YAC (fifth best) on 166 carries. Drake's efficiency has obviously been terrific, and he's the favorite to lead the Miami backfield in 2018. Though he'll certainly defer snaps and touches to veteran Frank Gore, Drake shouldn't struggle to push for 250 touches, which would allow RB2 numbers.


Smallwood, Wendell - PHI

Smallwood, Wendell

Smallwood appeared in 13 games after being selected by Philadelphia in the fifth round of last year's draft. The quick and agile scatback played relatively well on 83 touches while sharing snaps with Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner. The Eagles did very little to address the running back position during the offseason, which leaves Smallwood as the favorite for early-down duties, with Sproles and Donnel Pumphrey positioned as passing-down and change-of-pace options. Smallwood is a sneaky flex target, especially in non-PPR formats.


Mack, Marlon - IND

Mack, Marlon

Mack spent his rookie season working behind Frank Gore. The fourth-round pick touched the ball 114 times and certainly showed some playmaking ability. He was limited to 3.8 YPC on 93 rushing attempts, but 2.25 came after initial contact (ninth-best). He averaged an impressive 10.7 YPR (fourth) but dropped four balls (third-most). Gore is gone, but the Colts added Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins during April's draft. At least early on, Mack is the favorite to lead the backfield. With Andrew Luck looking to make a return in 2018, Mack should see fewer defenders in the box, so we expect the miserable 1.55 yards before contact to improve. We like Mack as a mid-round sleeper.


Mixon, Joe - CIN

Mixon, Joe

Mixon missed significant time with injuries, shared touches with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard, and struggled with rushing efficiency, but he still ended up 22nd at the position in touches as a rookie. The second-round pick was limited to 3.5 YPC and 1.7 YAC, both of which ranked in the lower quarter of the league. Mixon's pass-catching efficiency, on the other hand, was outstanding. He caught all but four of his 34 targets and averaged 8.4 yards per target (fourth highest). Mixon is still only 21 years old and is expected to enter 2018 as Cincinnati's workhorse back. Though he's safest as your second back, Mixon is a strong breakout candidate.


Cook, Dalvin - MIN

Cook, Dalvin

Cook appeared well on his way to a massive rookie season prior to suffering a torn ACL in Week 4. The second-round pick put up 354 yards (4.8 YPC) and a pair of touchdowns on 74 carries and caught 11 of 15 targets for 90 yards prior to the injury. Cook was on the field for only 64 percent of the Vikings' offensive snaps but sat ninth among backs in fantasy points through Week 4. Though Cook had the look of a legit star on tape and on the stat sheet, the opportunity was also terrific, as shown by the fact that replacements Jerick McKinnon (10th) and Latavius Murray (15th) were both top-15 fantasy backs from Week 5 on. Cook is Minnesota's clear workhorse back and is an RB1 with elite upside.


Collins, Alex - BAL

Collins, Alex

One of 2017's more surprising breakout performers, Collins joined Baltimore after being waived by Seattle just prior to the start of the season. The 2016 fifth-round pick quickly took control in the Ravens' backfield and went on to finish as fantasy's No. 21 running back despite playing only 35 percent of Baltimore's snaps. Collins averaged 4.7 YPC, including 2.1 after contact, both of which ranked in the top 13 at the position. The 23-year-old is the favorite to lead Baltimore's backfield in 2018, though he'll face completition from Kenneth Dixon and Javorius Allen. Collins' limited receiving work means he's more valuable in non-PPR, but he's capable of top-20 numbers in all formats.


Penny, Rashaad - SEA

Penny, Rashaad

The Seahawks appear committed to reverting back to a run-first offense, and selecting Penny with a first-round pick during April's draft further confirmed that game plan. The San Diego State product has good size at 5-foot-11, 220 pounds and is a downhill, elusive back with solid receiving skills. He's not the fastest guy (4.46-second 40-yard dash), but that didn't stop him from averaging 7.8 YPC while managing 10-plus yards on 20 percent of his attempts last season. Penny's 74 forced missed tackles and 110.2 elusive rating were tops in this season's class, according to Pro Football Focus. Penny is expected to be a workhorse as a rookie and can also help out with returns. He is a solid RB2 target.
