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 McCoy27BUF52454Had 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.
4Jamaal Charles28KCC34544Charles 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.
5DeMarco Murray27PHI45634.5Murray 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.
6Todd Gurley (R)21STL76365.5Coach 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 Hill22CIN69777.25Hill 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.
8Carlos Hyde23SFO881199With 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.
9C.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.
10Melvin Gordon (R)22SDC10791410Gordon 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
11Adrian Peterson30MIN910131110.75Peterson'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 Forte29CHI1212161213Some 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 Ingram25NOS1813151014Ingram 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.
14Lamar Miller24MIA1616101614.53The 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.
15TJ Yeldon (R)21JAX2114121315Yeldon 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.
16Marshawn Lynch29SEA1415171515.25There 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
17Arian Foster28HOU1318192017.5-4Foster 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.
18Tevin Coleman (R)22ATL1721201819Freeman 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
19David Johnson (R)23AZ1523241719.75Great 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
20Giovani Bernard23CIN2217222120.5Unlike the Cleveland RB Duo, the two Cincinatti backs can, and will, exist as complementary fantasy contributors.
21Latavius Murray24OAK2722181921.5Showed 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.
22Alfred Morris26WAS1920272222Finished 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.
23Andre Ellington26ARI2619212522.75Ellington 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)22DET3024142423Most 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
25Doug Martin26TBB2426252625.253Dmart 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
26Duke Johnson (R)21CLE2027312726.25I 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
27Jonathan Stewart28CAR3625232326.75He 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.
28C.J. Spiller28NOS2332263027.75-3Another 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.
29David Cobb (R)22TEN3828292830.75Cobb 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
30Justin Forsett29BAL3436283332.75What 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.
31Isaiah Crowell22CLE3130363533Without West on the team Crowell would be ranked much higher and vice versa.
32Shane Vereen26NYG4034342934.25Boom 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.
33Joique Bell29DET2835353934.25It's clear that the future at RB for the Lions isn't currently on this roster.
34Bishop Sankey22TEN2929404134.75He'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.
35Charles Sims24TBB4331423437.5-3the pass catching specialist will have to show he has the chops to be an everydown back before he replaces Dmart in that role
36Devonta Freeman23ATL3339324737.75Freeman will be looking at a RB3/Flex PPR option at best with the addition of Coleman
37Tre Mason22STL3742374239.5Mason 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
38Frank Gore32SFO2544533739.754Dude just keeps going, but......he's definitely slowing down. He should have a solid '15 season in Indy with Luck and Co.
39Joseph Randle23DAL6138303240.254With Murray leaving in a FA there have been reports that the team thinks he could be an everydown back.
40Chris Ivory27NYJ5033394040.510He 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.
41Javorius Allen (R)24BAL3550433641Great spot for Allen. With the team rebuidling you can be assured they would like to see Allen pass Forsett.
42Jay Ajayi (R)22MIA3943543141.75-4Ajayi looks great on tape. Recent injury concerns caused him to drop and now he could make life miserable for the Lamar Miller owners.
43Ryan Mathews28PHI4545384443A starting RB caliber NFL player but always seems to be dinged. His value was crushed when he signed with Philly to backup Murray.
44Terrance West24CLE3240505143.25-5Without Crowell on the team West would be ranked much higher and vice versa.
45Jerick McKinnon23MIN4246414643.75-4Jerrick looks to be AP's COP back.
46Andre Williams23NYG4137524543.75Had 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.
47Matt Jones (R)22WAS5854333845.75Alf 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.
48LeGarrette Blount28NEP4747474947.5Now 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.
49Christine Michael24SEA4441555248-4Michael 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.
50James White23NEP5262455152.512Things 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
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.
52Darren McFadden28DAL4860495553-3DMC 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.
53Cameron Artis-Payne (R)25CAR5752564853.253CAP 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.
54Knile Davis23KCC6067444353.5The 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.
55Alfred Blue26HOU5456496054.75A physical specimine and could be a good one should Foster go down.
56Montee Ball24DEN5348685355.5-4Was 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.
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 Robinson24JAX4955626357.25Shoelace finds himself in the COP back role with Yeldon in the lead spot. He still has value
59Ronnie Hillman23DEN5957516457.754Hillman 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.
60Stevan Ridley26NYJ6249665658.25-6Was 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.
61Mike Davis (R)22SF5661586259.25Davis 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
62Josh Robinson (R)23IND7869464960.512Guy has massive upside. Gore is old. It's Indy
63Karlos Williams (R)22BUF6771575863.259Fjax 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.
64Jeremy Langford (R)23CHI7268635063.25Langford 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
65Zac Stacy24NYJ5559835964-6Stacy 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".
66Roy Helu26OAK6674655765.5Helu 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.
67Robert Turbin25SEA6566696766.75He's still in a crowded backfield with Lynch resigning and will play the 3rd fiddle.
68Darren Sproles32PHI6373646967.25His 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.
69Trent Richardson25OAK6465856870.5-9What a bust so far, he signed with Oak and will compete with L.Murray for playing time.
70Lorenzo Taliaferro23BAL7558737770.75Has his work cut to for him now with Javorius Allen in town
71Branden Oliver24SDC7770716671-3Melvin 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
72Chris Johnson29TEN6976707071.254A 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.
73Dan Herron26IND7172746871.25-325 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.
74Theo Riddick24DET6863797571.25-3Riddick has a crowded RB stable but he is a versatile back who also played slot wide receiver at Notre Dame.
75Danny Woodhead30SDC7383607171.75Was put on IR earlier this season with an ankle injury, could lose his job as the receiving back due to the emergence of Oliver.
76Bryce Brown24BUF7664678071.75-3Bryce Brown has all the natural talent in the world but looks lost on the Buff depth chart.
77KaDeem Carey22CHI7080727975.25Forte-esque skill set that could fill in immediately and make the Bears not notice if Forte goes down.
78Ahmad Bradshaw29UFA8077787477.25Have we seen the end of Shaw?
79Pierre Thomas30FA7484848180.75Was cut by the Saints this off-season, not sure where he will end up at this point.
80James Starks29GBP8786757681Has produced when given the opportunity, must have cuff for Lacy.
