FF Today Default Scoring: Review Scoring
 Devontae Booker, DEN (Bye: 5)
73
Height: 5’11”   Weight: 219   DOB: 1992-05-27   Age: 25
College: Utah   Draft: 2016 Round 4 (38) 
SeasonTeamGameAtt Yard TDRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2016DEN16174 612 4 31 265 1 117.7 7.4
2017 (Projected)DEN 63 245 1 16 122 1 48.7  

Outlook: Now entering his second season as a pro, Devontae Booker should be looking to forget what was a poor rookie season. The former fourth round pick showed some serious signs of potential early in 2016, but failed miserably to produce even acceptable numbers once he was given the opportunity after an injury to C.J. Anderson. Booker finished his rookie season with just a 3.5 yards per carry average in Gary Kubiak's one-cut, zone blocking scheme. Coaching changes now have most experts believing that the Broncos will turn to a more traditional power running scheme in 2017, which could do wonders for a 220-lb back like Booker. He'll start the season behind Anderson on the depth chart and he could even be behind Charles once he gets on the field. For that reason, Booker projects as a late-round flier with upside, but one who is unlikely to produce unless other players on the team go down.


 Marlon Mack, IND (Bye: 11)
74
Height: 5’11”   Weight: 213   DOB: 1996-03-07   Age: 21
College: South Florida   Draft: 2017 Round 4 (37) 
SeasonTeamGameAtt Yard TDRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2017 (Projected)IND 51 215 1 17 116 1 45.1  

Outlook: Marlon Mack has a Darren Sproles skill set that the Colts will likely deploy all over the field. He should be fun to follow this preseason but it's unlikely that he will slide into consistent carries in his rookie campaign. Mack's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield could force 2016 UDFA Josh Ferguson off the roster prior to the season. Ferguson attempted to fill the pass catching role in Indy but lacks the vision and explosiveness this offense wants from a multi-dimensional running back.


 Chris Johnson, ARI (Bye: 8)
75

 James Conner, PIT (Bye: 9)
76
Height: 6’1”   Weight: 233   DOB: 1995-05-05   Age: 22
College: Pittsburgh   Draft: 2017 Round 3 (41) 
SeasonTeamGameAtt Yard TDRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G
2017 (Projected)PIT 75 315 2 12 82 0 51.7  

Outlook: Terminator jokes aside, Conner not only is an amazing story of cancer survival, but a testament to spirit, hard work, and dedication. Conner joins his hometown team, and should soak up plenty of off-season reps with the first team while Bell holds out.

Conner isn't just a feel good story, he's a hell of a football player. A former ACC Player of the Year, Conner possesses a heart of a lion to go along with a physical running style. His agility and speed don't jump off the tape, and he's much more of a thumper than anyone else on the roster, so this certainly limits the upside he can have in this offense. He's a capable pass catcher, but had only 30 receptions in his college career. If the Steelers don't end up signing a veteran to back up Bell, Conner makes for an acceptable possible handcuff option. He's more than the sum of his parts, and could return value playing in that explosive Pittsburgh offense.


 Alfred Morris, DAL (Bye: 6)

 Branden Oliver, LAC (Bye: 9)
78
Height: 5’8”   Weight: 208   DOB: 1991-05-07   Age: 26
College: Buffalo, N.Y.   Draft:
SeasonTeamGameAtt Yard TDRec Yard TDFPtsFPts/G

2017 (Projected)LAC 59 235 1 9 64 0 35.9  

Outlook: After missing the 2016 season with an Achilles tendon injury, most believe that it's Branden Oliver who has the inside track to be the primary backup for Melvin Gordon heading into the 2017 season. Oliver has drawn praise from quarterback Philip Rivers who raved about his explosiveness in OTA's, noting that it's great to have two backs (Gordon and Oliver) who have similar skill sets and can do many of the same things.

Oliver has performed relatively well when he's been given the chance, particularly in 2014 when he had back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances. Oliver himself is unlikely to have much fantasy value while Gordon is healthy however it's the nature of being an NFL running back that injuries are always just a play away. Oliver is the most tenured of the backs on the Los Angeles roster despite being just 26 years old. While the team did have a turnover at many of the coaching positions, Ken Whisenhunt will remain the team's offensive coordinator heading into 2017, which should mean that Oliver has a good grasp of the playbook. He certainly hasn't locked up the backup running back job, but his skill set seems to be closest to that of Gordon, which would seem to indicate that he'd be the player who would transition most smoothly into a starting role should Gordon go down this season.

2017 (Projected)HOU 51 205 1 10 65 0 33.0  

Outlook: Houston's backup running back for a few years now, Alfred Blue's days with the team seem numbered. A free agent after the season, Blue will battle Akeem Hunt and D'Onta Foreman for a share of the backup duties in Houston. Blue's experience will surely help his cause but the door is open should one of the other backs impress during the preseason. The team will want to give Lamar Miller more rest after he wore down a year ago so fantasy owners will want to keep tabs on this situation throughout the preseason.

Tyler Ervin will be used primarily on special teams. His role in the offense will be too limited for him to make much of a fantasy splash. Akeem Hunt will need to outplay Blue and Ervin to retain a roster spot. Hunt has done well in small doses during his first two seasons with Houston, however but he lacks the size of Foreman and Blue and doesn't offer as much upside on special teams as Ervin. Needless to say, things are crowded behind Miller and fantasy owners will need to wait until deep into the preseason to see how things finally shake out.
