The Cleveland RB situation is one to keep a close eye on. I love Duke Johnson and think he will take that lead. If not, than obviously whomever is the RB1 for the Browns would move up significantly.


Anyone can run with the Cowboys O-Line. Joseph Randle looks like the next man up with McFadden’s recent injury.


CJ Anderson looks like he will thrive in Denver’s system.


I am intrigued to see AP play. I think he has the chance to be the #1 RB this season.


Jeremy Hill has taken the #1 RB spot away from Giovani Bernard. He had a stellar second half of the season last year.


I really like what the Colts have done. They have the playmakers on offense to enable the offensive line to open holes for Frank Gore. Gore will not be going up against 8 man fronts very much this season.


James Starks is a name I think will rise towards the end of the season. Green Bay will score so many points, that they may give more touches to

Starks in garbage time to give Lacy a break.


DeMarco Murray and LeSean McCoy find themselves in new cities and new schemes. I see McCoy flourishing and Murray taking a step back from last year. He ran behind the best OL in football last year.


Alfred Blue better be ready to be the man in Houston. A trade with Denver for Ronnie Hillman might make sense.


The top back to me is Le’Veon Bell, hands down. After him, the next 6-7 backs are all interchangeable. Personal preference as any of them could be “the guy.” Forte scores more in PPR leagues. Peterson will score a lot of touchdowns and get a ton of yards. CJ Anderson will ground and pound this year. Which guys will get their TD’s vultured from RB2 this year? Lynch is a goal line nightmare and always a solid choice.
