Which RB2 is most likely to jump into the RB1 conversation?
We saw some surprises last year in Conner, White & Lindsay. If you were smart enough to jump on these guys in your draft you were sitting pretty.

Which of the RBs, that finished the season as an RB2, wouldn't surprise you to see them in the top 12 this upcoming season?

According to FantasyPros (.5 ppr), the top 12 were:
Gurley, Barkley, cmc, kamara, zeke, conner, gordon, white, mixon, DJ, Hunt and Lindsay.

The next 12 were:
Cohen, Henry, Carson, Chubb, Drake, AP, Coleman, Howard (surprising, considering how shitty of a season he had), Mack, Miller, Aaron Jones & Ekeler.

Chubb is the obvious choice to take hunts slot in the top. Other than that I'm really going to be looking hard at Mack & Jones.

Mack should be 100%, if he can stay healthy I think he will dominate. He showed his ability to grind out yards, make dudes miss, and catch the ball out of the backfield. With another full season of healthy luck & T.Y. defenses won't be able to stack the box. Marlon should feast.

Aaron Jones. This was my GUY last season. When given the opportunity, Jones shined brighter than most. If LaFleur is able to see what we ALL saw last year Jones should get between 15-20 touches a game.

Well Hunt will be taking carries away from Chubb eventually...

Cohen and Howard would be along with someone drafted this year

Well, you don't have Guice listed.

If a SF back gets 50-55% of the touches, they will probably be a low end RB1. I'm thinking Tevin Coleman

I don't see this happening unless Mckinnon gets cut

re: Which RB2 is most likely to jump into the RB1 conversation?
Damn, IDK how I forgot Guice. If WSH can get someone better than Johnson or McCoy, Guice will earn his rb1 label.. no doubt

Even before McKinnon went down I wasn't huge on him. That offense scared me BEFORE anyone got hurt.


Breida could be a stud. I'd like to see him get traded somewhere & let SF run McKinnon all season. TB needs someone, you've got to assume they'll make a move. I doubt Brucey is content with Barber & Jones. But wtf do I know?

Mark Ingram could take a leap.

I think he'll fall in that 12-24 range.

I was on team bell during that whole debacle, and that was WITH taking him 2nd overall last year.

There are too many unknowns to group him with the other top tier baws

Dalvin Cook will be healthy and the lead back in Minnesota.

Chiefs havent drafted a RB thru 3rd and don’t pick again until 6th. Hyde will get touches but looks like they will role with Damien Williams. He was dynamic in their last few games last year

Josh (Oakland) sorry didn’t mean Adams



I think cook will be top 10 maybe top 5 at the end of this year.

Bigger question is how many handcuffs will you draft later in your draft and stash on your bench articulating happening this year what happened in the latter parts of the 2018 season.

100%. He has the ability to be like 2016 David Johnson. Dude is the complete package and I think Minny will start to game plan around him offensively. Good call

I hope so. I traded for Cook in my dynasty league last year and some in the league thought it was a bull shite trade. Coming into this year I've got Cook, Mack and Le'veon Bell as my top three RB's.

Damn, good work. I want every piece of that colts offense this year. It started to come together towards the end of last season. I think they pull it all together this season & have one of the most potent offenses.

Can't wait to see Bell back. I don't even know what kind of shape that dude is in right now. If he's even 3/4 of what he was you'll have a deadly three headed monster

You have to consider Guice.

Dalvin Cook

Damien Williams should be in the mix, post draft and FA it looks like its still his backfield
