We’re into the month of August. The Hall of Fame Game is in the books. And later this week the preseason begins in earnest. And with it that most wonderful time of year in fantasy football…
Fantasy draft season.
Last week here at the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy, we discussed the quarterbacks. This week the focus of the gang at the FFFF (or 4F, as the kids say) turns to arguably the most important position in fantasy football. The position that dominates the top of drafts in 2017.
It’s running back time, baby!
Who is top dog at the position this year? Is it David Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals, who led the position in total fantasy points last year? Or is it Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who was No. 1 in terms of fantasy points per game?
And what of the Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys, the second-year rushing king awaiting a potential suspension from the league offices?
Of course, there’s much more to the tailbacks than just the “Big 3,” whether it’s grizzled veterans like LeSean McCoy of the Buffalo Bills or up-and-coming youngsters like Jordan Howard of the Chicago Bears.
Which undervalued backs should fantasy owners target? Which busts in the making are set to crush championship dreams ala Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams? What late-round lottery tickets are about to come from nowhere to lead fantasy squads to the playoffs? And what about this year’s rookie class?
For everything you need to know about fantasy running backs in 2017, join the Fantasy Football Feeding Frenzy on Wednesday, August 8 at 7 PM Eastern.
Come on in – the water’s FINE!
