COMMENTS
  Saquon Barkley, NYG: Workload is secure, but loss of OBJ will put a damper on the offense.

  Christian McCaffrey, CAR: Usage and efficiency increased in 2018. A true three-down RB.

  Alvin Kamara, NO: Back-to-back 80-catch seasons with double digit TDs has Kamara among the top 5 fantasy RBs heading into 2019.

  Ezekiel Elliott, DAL: Elliott has finished no worse than 3rd in FPts/G among RBs in each of the last three seasons.

  David Johnson, ARI: Despite a poor offensive philosophy, Johnson finished a top 12 fantasy RB in 2018. New offense in 2019.

  James Conner, PIT: Conner's 13 TDs last season and ability as a receiver keep him in the RB1 discussion.

  Le'Veon Bell, NYJ: Bell should have a workhorse role with the Jets, but expecting Steelers-like production is ambitious.

  Todd Gurley, LAR: Gurley's workload is one the biggest debates this fantasy season. Expect him to be limited in camp.

  Dalvin Cook, MIN: With the departure of Latavius Murray, the stage is set for a Cook breakout. Can he stay healthy?

  Nick Chubb, CLE: A solid RB2 with RB1 upside the first of half of the year. What happens when Hunt is eligible the second half of the season?

  Joe Mixon, CIN: Huge production leap in 2018 has Mixon in the low-end RB1 conversation in 2019.

  Damien Williams, KC: Williams (hamstring) is the lead back when healthy but situation may more of a committee than fantasy owners would like.

  Kerryon Johnson, DET: Should see an uptick in production and be a solid RB2 if he can play all 16 games.

  Aaron Jones, GB: Unclear if new HC Matt LaFleur will let Jones be a bellcow RB. Committee approach is the likely outcome.

  Chris Carson, SEA: Carson had a knee procedure done this off-season but is expected to be ready for training camp.

  Devonta Freeman, ATL: With Coleman gone, Freeman is the lead back in a high-powered offense. Nice rebound candidate.

  Derrick Henry, TEN: The Henry breakout started to show itself late last season. Expect him to be in a more workhorse role in 2019.

  Leonard Fournette, JAC: Fournette's had a shaky start to his career but will remain a focal point of the Jags offense. Health is a major concern.

  Marlon Mack, IND: Given the lack of additions at RB, Mack should top 1000 yards if he's able to play 16 games.

Melvin Gordon, LAC: Will not report to camp. Want's a new contract.

  Mark Ingram, BAL: Good landing spot for Ingram. A run-heavy offense should allow him to reach fantasy RB2 value.

  Phillip Lindsay, DEN: Lindsay (wrist) has no timetable for a return but it would be surprising if he's not ready for training camp.

  James White, NE: Saw a huge usage bump in 2018. Should continue with no Gronk in the offense.

  Josh Jacobs, OAK: The rookie projects as the Raiders starting RB but could cede some third-down work to Richard.

David Montgomery, CHI: Rookie 3rd round pick could land the lead back role but will cede work to Cohen on third downs.

  Lamar Miller, HOU: Miller remains top the Texans RB depth chart, making him an uninspiring low-end RB2.

  Sony Michel, NE: Lack of work in the passing game (7 receptions in 2018) damages Michel's value in PPR leagues.

Kenyan Drake, MIA: Foot injury will cause Drake to miss time at camp. He's expected to be ready for Week 1.

  Austin Ekeler, LAC: Ekeler's had remarkable efficiency through two years in the league. Need's more opportunities to become a reliable fantasy contributor.

  Tevin Coleman, SF: As of OTA's Coleman is the healthiest of all the 49ers' RBs. This is a nightmare situation for fantasy owners.

  Rashaad Penny, SEA: HC Pete Carroll calls Carson and Penny a "one-two punch". It appears Carson is 1A and Penny 1B.

  Latavius Murray, NO: Murray will fill the Mark Ingram role but doesn't have Ingram's pass-catching ability.

Tarik Cohen, CHI: More valuable in PPR leagues. Could see his carries reduced with Montgomery and Davis also in the mix.

  Miles Sanders, PHI: Sanders (undisclosed) is missing OTAs. He's expected to split time with Howard.

  LeSean McCoy, BUF: McCoy is coming off his worst season a pro and Bills have added RB reinforcements via free agency and the draft.

  Jordan Howard, PHI: Howard's fantasy value was torpedoed by the drafting of Miles Sanders.

  Derrius Guice, WAS: Guice (knee) will win the starting job if he's healthy. Peterson is here as insurance.

  Adrian Peterson, WAS: The 34 year-old could begin the season as the starting RB if Guice (knee) isn't ready.

  Peyton Barber, TB: It's unlikely Barber sees 234 carries this season but he's a name to watch if Ronald Jones can't impress the new coaching staff.

Kalen Ballage, MIA: Ballage and Drake are likely to start the season in a RBBC for Miami.

  Royce Freeman, DEN: Currently stuck in the No.2 role behind Phillip Lindsay.

  Dion Lewis, TEN: Lewis should have his rushing attempts scaled back but will remain a fixture in the passing game.

  Jaylen Samuels, PIT: Filling a backup role, Samuels has value in the middle-to-late rounds as an upside pick.

  Ronald Jones, TB: Perhaps a new coaching staff will give Jones a fresh start to recover from a dismal rookie campaign.

  Nyheim Hines, IND: Hines carries more value in PPR leagues. Finished 8th in RB receptions (63) last season.

  Duke Johnson, HOU: Disgruntled but still a Brown, for now. Duke will remain in his pass-catching role with more value in PPR leagues during the first half of the season.

Jalen Richard, OAK: Richard's passing game role could take a hit if rookie Josh Jacobs proves capable on third downs.

  Giovani Bernard, CIN: Bengals added two RBs in the draft, but Bernard's No.2 role behind Mixon is secure.

  Ito Smith, ATL: Should see his touches increase as a direct backup to Freeman.

  Mike Davis, CHI: Fantasy value was decimated with the pick of David Montgomery in round 3 of the NFL Draft.

  Malcolm Brown, LAR: If McVay gives Gurley (knee) more rest in 2019, Brown should see an uptick in usage.

  Kareem Hunt, CLE: Will serve an 8-game suspension. Will likely split time with Chubb beginning Week 10.

  Jamaal Williams, GB: Likely role is the No.2 option in a two-man committee with Aaron Jones.

Carlos Hyde, KC: Hyde will likely play second fiddle to Damien Williams but does carry fantasy value as the Chiefs No.2 RB.

  Frank Gore, BUF: Zero rushing TDs for Gore last season in Miami. The 36 year-old will try again in 2019, this time for Buffalo.

Jerick McKinnon, SF: McKinnon (ACL) is fighting for playing time with Coleman, Breida. Continues to have knee troubles.

  Elijah McGuire, NYJ: Gase is known for a RBBC approach but's it's difficult to imaging this being the case with Bell in the mix.
