1Le'Veon Bell23PIT11111With Bell's suspension looming, you will want to have a back up plan for the first 3-4 games of the season. With that said, he is still the #1 back
2Eddie Lacy24GBP23222.25Lacy is a young 3-down RB in an explosive offense where defenses can't load up against the run with Rodgers at the helm.
3LeSean McCoy26BUF52443.75Had sort of a disappointing '14 season but still finished 12th in total points at RB and finished as a lowend RB1. Should be the focal point for the Buffalo offense with Rex running the show.
4DeMarco Murray27PHI45534.25Murray had one of the greatest seasons ever by a RB but w/a TON carries.Ê His landing spot with the Eagles could've been worse (Oak), but it's not great w/Matthews and Sproles sharing the load.
5Jamaal Charles28KCC34654.5Charles missed some time, but when he was on the field he proved he is still one of the best in the biz and a TD machine. He's getting up there in age, now is the time to sell.
6Todd Gurley (R)20STL86365.75Coach Fisher didn't draft him that early to not use him. Expect a slower integration to test the knee the first couple games, but then watch out
7Carlos Hyde23SFO78887.75With Gore in Indy Hyde will get a shot to be the man starting in '15. Slight concern with Harbaugh leaving with his smash-mouth philosophy.
8Jeremy Hill22CIN691078Hill looks to be the lead dogg in Cincy. Gio will spell him from time to time, but you can be aggressive pursuing this bell cow back.
9Melvin Gordon (R)22SDC1077108.5Gordon came away with the best landing spot in the draft. He will have the opportunity to blow up immediately. We will know soon just how much the O-line at WISC helped him
10C.J. Anderson24DEN12119910.25Hillman and Ball injuries have thrust Anderson into the spotlight and he's a solid workhorse when called upon, with Kubiak as the new OC we should see more of the same in '15.
11Adrian Peterson30MIN910141211.25Peterson's value no doubt took a dramatic hit to go along with his dramatic off-field issues. He's also turning 30 so he might have 2 seasons left since he is a freak of nature. Will he be back in MN?
12Matt Forte29CHI1112161112.5Some questions around Forte this off-season with his age and new coaching staff, but he should be good for another 2 seasons. Trade him now if you can though.
13Mark Ingram25NOS1814121314.25Ingram resigned with the Saints but he has company in CJ Spiller who some see as a threat. With Graham and Stills exiting there should be enough touches to go around to ensure succes for both RBs.
14Arian Foster28HOU1313171614.75Foster missed 3 games in '14 but still finished as a top-5 back in PPR, should be good for another 2 seasons. If you own or buy him this off-season make sure to grab Alfred Blue a well.
15Marshawn Lynch29SEA1416181415.5There is not a more talented backfield in the NFL then in Seattle with Lynch and Michael. Lynch will put up top-4 numbers but his future is murky as he has been rumored as a possible cap-casualty
16TJ Yeldon (R)21JAX21171115163Yeldon his the draft lottery in terms of landing spot. Denard will still have his role, but Yeldon will be the goalline and big back for that offense. He needs to hold onto the ball.
17Lamar Miller24MIA1618132117The addition of Ajayi is a little scary, but Miller has a firm lock on the starting gig and Ajayi has injury questions he needs to answer. There is slight hesitation however now.
18Giovani Bernard23CIN2215151717.25Unlike the Cleveland RB Duo, the two Cincinatti backs can, and will, exist as complementary fantasy contributors.
19Tevin Coleman (R)22ATL1720201818.75Freeman owners had to take a cold shower after this pick. THere is still going to be a committee, but Freeman cannot compete with Coleman's explosion. Expect a time share scenario with Freeman as the 3rd down back
20David Johnson (R)23AZ1524241920.5Great spot for the athletic freak Johnson. Best pass catching skills in the draft with break away speed in a monster's body. I am all-in on David Johnson
21Alfred Morris26WAS1919272021.25Finished as the RB17 with 8 games under 10 ppg which is not what you want out of your starting RB, would be higher in non-ppr leagues.
22Latavius Murray24OAK2722192222.5Showed big time ability at times in '14, should be the guy in '15 even after the addition of mega-bust TRich. Excited to see what he can do in the starting role for an entire season.
23Andre Ellington26ARI2621212523.25Ellington should find himself in his "proper" role of supporting back with David Johnson in town. Ellington needs to be the COP back and should thrive catching defenses off guard and hauling in 50+ receptions
24C.J. Spiller27NOS2530262426.25Another deflating year for Spiller owners, he has proven he's just not a workhorse back as he's only had one good year as a pro. He'll be a solid RB3 with the Saints.
25Jonathan Stewart28CAR3626232327He looked great down the stretch and in the playoffs and Deangelo is done with the team. Even though the team will draft a complimentary RB it should be a nice '15 season if he can stay healthy.
26Ameer Abdullah (R)22DET3725222727.755Most talented back on the roster. Fumbling and size concerns will make this situation one to monitor and Abdullah won't be worth the risk until the 2nd round of rookie drafts
27Duke Johnson (R)21CLE2029362627.75I actually like the landing spot for Duke. He offers something that Crowell and West don't and believe it or not he CAN hold up to every down work. This situation will take time to sort out
28Doug Martin26TBB2433253529.25-4Dmart dodged all the draft bullets. His main concern is now teammate Charles Simms. Expect Dmart to get the 1st and 2nd down work with Simms in the 3rd down role
29Isaiah Crowell22CLE3123323430-4Without West on the team Crowell would be ranked much higher and vice versa.
30Justin Forsett29BAL3438283132.75What a great year from the 29 year old journeyman. He resigned with Baltimore and will be the guy again although Kubiak just left with his ZB scheme to coach the Broncos which made him so good.
31Joique Bell28DET2831353732.75It's clear that the future at RB for the Lions isn't currently on this roster.
32Charles Sims24TBB43283130334the pass catching specialist will have to show he has the chops to be an everydown back before he replaces Dmart in that role
33David Cobb (R)22TEN4927292833.25Cobb finds himself in a good position to grab the lead role pushing Sankey to the back seat and making him a COP back. David will be a solid 4.0 /carry guy
34Shane Vereen26NYG4035393336.75Boom or bust player in PPR and signed with the Giants to form a crowded backfield with Williams and Jennings. The NE offense showcases his skills and I don't think he would fair well eslewhere.
35Tre Mason21STL3041374037-3Mason got CRUSHED with the addition of Gurley. If you can get anything for him..sell. If not, hope he develops into a 30% PPR relevant COP back
36Devonta Freeman23ATL3340344538Freeman will be looking at a RB3/Flex PPR option at best with the addition of Coleman
37Bishop Sankey22TEN2934404938He's been given opportunities to be the man and has really disappointed with ypc and fumbles. Good buy-low player but there is risk that he's just not that good.
38Terrance West24CLE3239305238.25-3Without Crowell on the team West would be ranked much higher and vice versa.
39Jerick McKinnon23MIN4236334438.75Jerrick looks to be AP's COP back.
40Javorius Allen (R)23BAL3549433239.753Great spot for Allen. With the team rebuidling you can be assured they would like to see Allen pass Forsett.
41Jay Ajayi (R)22MIA4742462941Ajayi looks great on tape. Recent injury concerns caused him to drop and now he could make life miserable for the Lamar Miller owners.
42Ryan Mathews28PHI39453842413A starting RB caliber NFL player but always seems to be dinged. His value was crushed when he signed with Philly to backup Murray.
43Frank Gore32SFO2343623841.5Dude just keeps going, but......he's definitely slowing down. He should have a solid '15 season in Indy with Luck and Co.
44Christine Michael24SEA4432444842-3Michael is dynamic when he plays, but we will have to wait another year or even two to find out as Lynch resigned with the Seahawks.
45Andre Williams22NYG4137534343.5-5Had some good games and bad games in relief of Jennings, could get more PT in '15 although it will be a crowded backfield with the addition of Vereen.
46Darren McFadden27DAL4851453645DMC is consistently inconsistent and couldn't do much when MJD went down with an injury. He signed with Dallas and will ultimately compliment their primary RB who isn't currently on the team.
47Joseph Randle23DAL6144413946.2516With Murray leaving in a FA there have been reports that the team thinks he could be an everydown back.
48LeGarrette Blount28NEP4552474747.75Now with the Pats he had some value late in the year and in the playoffs, both Vereen and Ridley have left in FA's this off-season and Gray is a fumble machine. His value depends on who they sign or draft this off-season.
49Chris Ivory27NYJ5046555551.5He looked solid when the team committed to both him but with plenty of competition arriving in Ridley and Stacy he's got his work cut out for him.
50Matt Jones (R)22WAS6257425052.7531Alf Morris has a lot of wear and tear already and is set to hit free agency next year. Jones is in a perfect spot to grab some work this year and the full time gig next.
51Montee Ball24DEN5347585352.75Was hyped as a top-5 RB heading into '14 and ultimately disappointed with poor play and injuries. His future is now murky and he'll have to compete vs CJ Anderson and Hillman for PT in '15.
52Denard Robinson24JAX3850606352.75-4Shoelace finds himself in the COP back role with Yeldon in the lead spot. He still has value
53Rashad Jennings30NYG4653595453Jennings started off the year hot and eventually broke down off and on for the rest of the season, he'll be back and will share the load with Andre Williams and Vereen in '15.
54Stevan Ridley26NYJ6348545154-3Was showing signs of a bounce-back season but it was cut short due to a season-ending knee injury. Signing with the Jets means plenty of competition, but also plenty of opportunity.
55Knile Davis23KCC6068514155The physical freak carved out a nice role late in the season and for a short period earlier this year. He's a RB1 whenever Charles misses time.
56Alfred Blue26HOU5458496055.25-3A physical specimine and could be a good one should Foster go down.
57Cameron Artis-Payne (R)25CAR5754654655.5CAP finds himself one broken ankle away from a full time 3-down role in Carolina. Awesome sleeper pick. CAP is very talented and could be Terrence West without Crowell.
58Reggie Bush30SFO5155616157-3He's getting older and is getting dinged, can still produce when on the field though. He signed with SF to compliment Hyde which should make him a spot-starter in PPR.
59Zac Stacy24NYJ5566486257.75Stacy asked for a trade and he got one. And a good one. Bad news is, the backfield is crowed in NY. Good news is it's crowed with a lot of "Meh".
60Trent Richardson24OAK6559505858-4What a bust so far, he signed with Oak and will compete with L.Murray for playing time.
61Mike Davis (R)22SF5662526458.5-4Davis might be the best "all-around" back in this year's class. But unfortunately he has a beast in Hyde in front of him. Davis is looking like a taxi squad guy for a year or two
62Ronnie Hillman23DEN5960577362.25Hillman was pretty solid when he had his shot to start before going down with injury opening the door to CJ Anderson. He could be in the mix for some carries in '15.
63James White23NEP5263567862.25Things are shaping up nicely for White and may be a nice sleeper come draft time. It's NE though, so don't get too excited
64Jeremy Langford (R)23CHI7369635665.253Langford and Carey are very similar with the explosion edge to Langford and the natural pass catching edge to Carey. Anyone's guess as to who emerges
65Branden Oliver24SDC7856666666.5Melvin Gordon killed any hope Oliver owners had. It came as no surprise. Oliver is an average back and is perfect in a support role behind the vastly more talented Gordon
66Darren Sproles32PHI6471646967His role is murky after the additions of Murray and Matthews, should be interesting to see how Chip uses all 3 of these RBs moving forward.
67Robert Turbin25SEA6667696767.25He's still in a crowded backfield with Lynch resigning and will play the 3rd fiddle.
68Roy Helu26OAK6777745768.756Helu is talented but just hasn't gotten a big chance to be the guy. He signed with Oak and will be in the mix with Murray and Trich for PT.
69Ryan Williams25DAL5872816569-8Williams is flying up the draft boards as Dallas refused to address the RB situation. With only Dmac and Randle to compete with, Williams is my favorite to emerge as an actual FF asset.
70Karlos Williams (R)22BUF6887685970.56Fjax has GOT to wind down sometime right? Williams is a freak of nature and if he continues to develop as a RB (former Safety), he could see a significant role in Buff.
71Dan Herron26IND7275706871.2525 year old backup RB Boom Herron looks the better back than Trent Richardson in Indy, which says a lot more about Richardson than it does Herron.
72Theo Riddick24DET6964797571.75-4Riddick has a crowded RB stable but he is a versatile back who also played slot wide receiver at Notre Dame.
73Lorenzo Taliaferro23BAL7661737771.75-4Has his work cut to for him now with Javorius Allen in town
74Bryce Brown24BUF7765678072.25-3Bryce Brown has all the natural talent in the world but looks lost on the Buff depth chart.
75Danny Woodhead30SDC7480717174Was put on IR earlier this season with an ankle injury, could lose his job as the receiving back due to the emergence of Oliver.
76Chris Johnson29TEN7074837074.25-6A shell of his former self, not much left in the tank since his elilte play was based on his speed which is in the rear-view mirror. He was also released by the Jets and hasn't been signed by any teams.
77KaDeem Carey22CHI7179727975.25-5Forte-esque skill set that could fill in immediately and make the Bears not notice if Forte goes down.
78Josh Robinson (R)22IND7970957279Guy has massive upside. Gore is old. It's Indy
79Ahmad Bradshaw29UFA8185787479.5Have we seen the end of Shaw?
80Pierre Thomas30FA7586848181.5-3Was cut by the Saints this off-season, not sure where he will end up at this point.
