“Winners” at the Running Back position post-NFL Draft

Latavius Murray

Date: 5/5/2015

Roy Helu is in Oakland, and so is Trent Richardson, but the presence of both runners makes Murray ‘risky’ enough to still be undervalued, yet neither back is going to be all that tough to hold off (assuming Murray stays healthy). I love Murray at his undervalued price tag right now, as he has high-end RB2-type upside (if not more), yet he won’t cost you anything close to high-end RB value — For now. Act now, but buy-low, though… going after him via trade and expecting high-end RB2-type value isn’t good GMing, that’s called buying high and missing all the upside.

That Dallas offensive line made DeMarco Murray into a top 1-3 fantasy running back. While I… Read More

Melvin Gordon & Todd Gurley

5/1/2015: I love both landing spots for Todd Gurley (Rams) and Melvin Gordon (Chargers), and due to how far running backs have been falling in recent years, fantasy worlds were nervous about these two guys landing in bad, or even mediocre, situations. For years now, because running backs were falling so far outside the top 32 overall, NFL teams that didn’t absolutely need a top rookie running back were just as likely to draft one, because at some point, the value was just too good to pass up. This had runners, in year’s past, landing in bad situations. This was not the case in round-one of the 2015 NFL Draft. Gurley landing in St. Louis is… Read Spotlight

Derek Carr (QB/OAK)

4/30/2015: Derek Carr was already set for a breakout year this year, but he just landed a true fantasy wide receiver one in rookie Amari Cooper, and the two are going to mature together – and fast. I love this landing spot for Amari Cooper, but I love this move even more for Read Spotlight

Kevin White

4/27/2015: Kevin White (West Virginia) – It’s hard to argue who is the top fantasy wide receiver prospect in this 2015 NFL Draft.. It’s between Amari Cooper and Kevin White, that’s clear at this point… Read Spotlight

Spotlight: Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper

4/27/2015: Amari Cooper is smooth and super fluid. He isn’t a speed specialist (4.42 second forty), but he is such a crisp route runner, and he has amazing hands (despite some drops), and clearly a nose for the end zone. He pulled in an impressive 124 receptions for 1,727 yards and 16TDs in 2014. Again, he had some drops in 2014 and 2013, but… Read Spotlight

It’s between Amari Cooper and Kevin White, that’s clear at this point. Dorial Green-Beckham has the talent (but might be too raw – for now), and DeVante Parker is grabbing tons of attention as of late, but… Read Spotlight
