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 McCoy27BUF52443.75Had 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)20STL76365.5Coach 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
7Jeremy 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.
8Melvin 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
9Carlos Hyde23SFO88998.5With 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.
10C.J. Anderson24DEN1111889.5Hillman 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 Peterson30MIN910121210.75Peterson'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 Forte29CHI1212161112.75Some 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.
13Arian Foster28HOU1313181615Foster 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.
14TJ Yeldon (R)21JAX21151113155Yeldon 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.
15Mark Ingram25NOS1814151415.25Ingram 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.
16Marshawn Lynch29SEA1417171515.75There 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
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 Bernard23CIN2216141717.25Unlike the Cleveland RB Duo, the two Cincinatti backs can, and will, exist as complementary fantasy contributors.
19Tevin Coleman (R)22ATL1719201818.5Freeman 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 Morris26WAS1920272021.5Finished 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
24Ameer Abdullah (R)22DET3025222425.257Most 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
25C.J. Spiller27NOS2330262826.75Another 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.
26Jonathan 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.
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 Martin26TBB2431253328.25-4Dmart 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 Crowell22CLE3123313429.75-4Without West on the team Crowell would be ranked much higher and vice versa.
30David Cobb (R)22TEN3828292730.54Cobb 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
31Justin Forsett29BAL3437283132.5What 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.
32Charles Sims24TBB4327343033.54the pass catching specialist will have to show he has the chops to be an everydown back before he replaces Dmart in that role
33Joique Bell28DET2835353733.75-4It's clear that the future at RB for the Lions isn't currently on this roster.
34Shane Vereen26NYG4033333234.5Boom 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.
35Devonta Freeman23ATL3340324537.5Freeman will be looking at a RB3/Flex PPR option at best with the addition of Coleman
36Bishop 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.
37Tre Mason21STL3742374039-5Mason 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
38Jay Ajayi (R)22MIA3943462939.254Ajayi looks great on tape. Recent injury concerns caused him to drop and now he could make life miserable for the Lamar Miller owners.
39Terrance West24CLE3239395240.5-4Without Crowell on the team West would be ranked much higher and vice versa.
40Javorius Allen (R)23BAL3549433540.53Great spot for Allen. With the team rebuidling you can be assured they would like to see Allen pass Forsett.
41Jerick McKinnon23MIN4236414440.75Jerrick looks to be AP's COP back.
42Frank Gore32SFO2544623641.75Dude just keeps going, but......he's definitely slowing down. He should have a solid '15 season in Indy with Luck and Co.
43Joseph Randle23DAL6141303842.520With Murray leaving in a FA there have been reports that the team thinks he could be an everydown back.
44Ryan Mathews28PHI4545384242.5A starting RB caliber NFL player but always seems to be dinged. His value was crushed when he signed with Philly to backup Murray.
45Christine Michael24SEA4432484843-4Michael 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.
46Andre Williams22NYG4138524343.5-6Had 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.
47LeGarrette Blount28NEP4750474747.75Now 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.
48Matt Jones (R)22WAS585442505133Alf 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.
49Darren McFadden27DAL4861563951-3DMC 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.
50Chris 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.
51Rashad Jennings30NYG4651595452.5Jennings 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.
52Montee 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.
53Knile Davis23KCC6067444153The 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.
54Stevan Ridley26NYJ6248545153.75-3Was 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.
55Alfred Blue26HOU5456496054.75A physical specimine and could be a good one should Foster go down.
56Cameron Artis-Payne (R)25CAR57526546553CAP 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.
57Reggie Bush30SFO5153616156.5He'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.
58Denard Robinson24JAX4955606356.75-10Shoelace finds himself in the COP back role with Yeldon in the lead spot. He still has value
59Zac Stacy24NYJ5560535956.75Stacy 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 Richardson25OAK6457505857.25-4What a bust so far, he signed with Oak and will compete with L.Murray for playing time.
61Mike Davis (R)22SF5662516458.25-4Davis 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
62James White23NEP5263457859.5Things 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
63Ronnie Hillman23DEN5958577361.75-3Hillman 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.
64Jeremy Langford (R)23CHI7268635664.753Langford 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
65Robert Turbin25SEA6566696766.75He's still in a crowded backfield with Lynch resigning and will play the 3rd fiddle.
66Darren Sproles32PHI6372646967His 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.
67Roy Helu26OAK6673745767.57Helu 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.
68Branden Oliver24SDC7770666669.75-4Melvin 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
69Lorenzo Taliaferro23BAL7559737771Has his work cut to for him now with Javorius Allen in town
70Dan Herron26IND7171756871.25325 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.
71Theo Riddick24DET6864797571.5-3Riddick has a crowded RB stable but he is a versatile back who also played slot wide receiver at Notre Dame.
72Karlos Williams (R)22BUF6790686271.754Fjax 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.
73Bryce Brown24BUF7665678072Bryce Brown has all the natural talent in the world but looks lost on the Buff depth chart.
74Josh Robinson (R)22IND7869707272.254Guy has massive upside. Gore is old. It's Indy
75Danny Woodhead30SDC7381717174Was 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 Johnson29TEN6975837074.25-6A 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 Carey22CHI7079727975-5Forte-esque skill set that could fill in immediately and make the Bears not notice if Forte goes down.
78Ahmad Bradshaw29UFA8076787477Have we seen the end of Shaw?
79Pierre Thomas30FA7482848180.25Was cut by the Saints this off-season, not sure where he will end up at this point.
80Ryan Williams25DAL10080816581.5-19Williams 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.
