Running Backs

Running Backs are the ROCK of your fantasy football team and there are not enough every game, every play, featured backs out there to go around.  There are the studs, and then there’s everyone else.  Every year a couple of guys emerge and like a caterpillar, bloom into a BEASTS!  The key is to find that guy before everyone else.
