Running Backs

Logo Thumbnail

Running Backs can be the rock of your fantasy football team, but there are not enough featured backs to go around. There are the studs, and then there’s everyone else. Every year a couple of guys emerge and like a caterpillar and bloom into a BEAST!  The key is to find that guy before everyone else. You want guys who have a chance at the No. 1 spot on the roster, or who have a defined role, like a third-down back who specializes in catching balls out of the backfield.
