A lot of talk as usual about the top-tier guys at each position. Would like to get a little insight on the mid-round RB's (RB's taken aprox. rounds 4-7).I can't figure them out. I'm most intrigued by these guys in particular:
Jeremy Hill (ADP 48)
DeMarco Murray (ADP 48)
Latavius Murray (ADP 49)
Jeremy Langford (ADP 61)
Ryan Mathews (ADP 64)
Frank Gore (ADP 74)
Matt Jones (ADP 76)
All of them are intriguing because they all have something going in favor of them, but they all have flaws too:
Bengals are rumored to revert back to their 2014 offense, power-running game (lost a lot of weapons on offense). Can Hill revert back to his rookie form. As bad as he was last year, he still scored 12 total TD's.
DeMarco has looked good in preseason, but so has Henry. Not really sure what to expect with him tbh. Tenn wants to run, so even with a rbbc DeMarco could still see 15+ touches?
I don't think Latavius is very talented, but as of now he is abellcow behind a pretty good OLine. Seems like the two guys behind him might be more talented.
Jeremy Langord really leaves me scratching my head. He looks like one of the few true 3-down backs in the NFL this year. He handled almost all the snaps with the 1's in their 3rd preseason game. Only problem is their Bears are doo-doo.
Doug Pederson's RB's always shine. But can he stay healthy. Last year he was one of the best RB's in terms of ypc.
Gore seems like a safe bet for 15+ carries per game. Ceiling may not be very high though. Do the wheels finally fall off?
Ketih Marshall was put in season-ending IR. It makes Matt Jones a lot more interesting. With little to no depth in the Skins backfield, he should get a lot of work. But their running game isn't very good, and Matt Jones seems like an average talent.
Feel free to discuss other guys I haven't brought up. I'm starting to get some interest in Melvin Gordon, but not sure I can trust him with Woodhead there.
