In today's video I go over an updated list of my must own running backs. I made this video back in early June, but it's been a while, and a lot of things have changed since then. These are now the running backs I view as being the best picks in fantasy football this season...given their current ADP's

I've drafted David Johnson the past two seasons. Sorry, but you couldn't pay me to draft his ass again this year.

These are my conflicting positions & players of my 10 Player PPR Fantasy League. I have some questions at the bottom if you guys don't mind giving me your opinions RB1: Devonta Freeman RB2: Chris Carson WR1: DHop WR2: OBJ Flex: Austin Ekeler Bench: James White: Put up big numbers last season, but production decreased once his fellow RBs became healthy Sterling Shepherd: Promoted to WR1 for the Giants Emmanuel Sanders: WR1 for the Broncos Marvin Jones: WR2 for the Lions James Washington: Likely to line up alongside Juju as WR2 Tyrell Williams: Likely to line up alongside AB as WR2 Should I put one of my bench WRs at flex? If I do put one of my bench WRs at flex (Ekeler's current position), should Ekeler replace my RB 1 or 2 or should I bench Ekeler? Should I also find a way to start James White? Is Devonta Freeman risky to start based off his history of injuries?

Somehow David Montgomery dropped to the 9th round in my league. It’s likely because we do offline drafts and he didn’t have a sticker in the set. I had to write him in once I realized he was still out there.

I know this isn’t rb related but would you keep newton with his injury or just keep Lamar Jackson
JackassHill 5 months ago
I personally want no part of Lamar Jackson. I just don't see it. Newton healthy, even with this new throwing motion BS, is going to give you production. I always view quarterback as a "whatever" position though. Consistency is the only thing that really matters to me when it comes to QBs. Some guys have splash games, but turn around and give you crap the next week. Consistently average though, like Lamar Jackson will probably be, is waiver wire fodder IMO. The quickest way to figure out how valuable a fantasy quarterback is, is by looking at how many receivers he makes fantasy relevant. Do you even want to draft Baltimore's tight end? With Newton healthy, Samuel will be a thing, people are taking Moore, and Olsen is still relevant. AND he's got McCaffrey, one of the two best receiving backs in the game. The value of Jackson last year was based on whether or not he would keep in the red zone. Well, he almost ALWAYS did, because Gus Edwards would go for like 150, and have 15 points. lol. I don't see him turning into Tom Brady any time soon. The guy is just not a good passing quarterback. He might improve, but compare where Murray is to where Jackson is right now. It should already be apparent which one has the higher ceiling where being an actual quarterback is concerned.

Robert Smith

Im still throwing up from owning Cook last year.
Tyler 5 months ago
Robert Smith I haven’t had him before but I might be a tad biased but I think he is the best pick in this draft as in I would take him first overall handcuff him with mattison the massively improved o-line and the fact that they fired their OC because he didn’t run enough says that he will get a ton of carry’s and at least 50 catches and he is very explosive to break long runs as we saw against the cardinals first team defense without half of Cooks starting o-line h broke a 85 yard TD and he is the focal point of the offense

Do you really think Johnson will have a chance to produce good numbers? I see another year like last year! They're playing from behind to much and can't run the ball, Murray is looking lost in the pre season and not sure if he'll be dependable!! You're reaching there! Barkley or McCaffrey that's who should be ahead of DJ (my mind is trained in a points h2h format though so I'm likely wrong here lol)
Fantasy Football Advice
Don’t evaluate talent based off preseason. That’s worse than a rookie mistake

Topher Doucet those the guys are going way before David Johnson. David Johnson has a off year and still finished 9th in PPR amongst running backs. I think David Johnson having a great year all depends on kyler Murray. But he’s definitely going to get the volume.

Kerryon split carries in week 2 preseason. History of committee with terrible head coach. Still have CJ Anderson and TY Johnson, who are actually both better than backs last year. Not sure why no one thinks this is MORE likely a committee than not...and its a bad offense. Love the player, hate the situation.

Greg Maddux cmac for thielen? TAKE THE TRADE it doesn’t matter if u don’t have good wideouts cmc will double the points that thielen gets

This is a good video for drafting 2nd/3rd round backs. I wouldn't draft Dalvin Cook, Davonta Freeman, or David Johnson if they came with a $1,000 prize. That's just me.

I'd draft Tevin Coleman but not in the 5th round, his ADP is too high.
JackassHill 5 months ago
Matt Breida's fragile ass is shitting in my Tevin Coleman Kool Aid right now. Nevermind Mostert, who looks like Walter Payton every time he gets run. I hate having to draft 2 running backs to feel good about securing a really good backfield. Almost as much as I hate taking backups with upside late in the draft just to sit on them and pray.

How is he an idiot? David is a top 5 pick! Also more leagues are won on the waiver then in draft!
Marc Price

You are an idiot. I have won my last 2 100 dollar buy in leagues and have picked 8th and 10th out of 12 teams in both. It's all about strategy in the middle to late rounds. The first few rounds dont win you games alone.

So pretty much most teams in a league will have one of these backs. If you get 2 youre lucky. If you get 3 youre in a small league or dumb league.

Dalvin Cook is a stay away RB. He can’t stay healthy. Period. The Vikes will want to pound the ball behind a terrible O Line. It’s not if, it’s when Cook gets hurt.
