COMMENTS
  Christian McCaffrey, CAR: No reason to believe McCaffrey's workload will decrease despite injury-plagued 2020.

  Derrick Henry, TEN: A whopping 33 rushing TDs over the last two years.

  Dalvin Cook, MIN: An insane 29 rush TDs the last two seasons. Locked in RB1.

Alvin Kamara, NO: Taysom was a thorn in the side to Kamara's fantasy value as he wasn't checking down to the speedy RB.

Ezekiel Elliott, DAL: Zeke caught fumbilitis last year on his way to his worst season a pro. Rise of Pollard is a concern.

  Saquon Barkley, NYG: Barkley (ACL, MCL) is likely to be limited in camp. It's not a sure thing that he's ready for Week 1.

  Jonathan Taylor, IND: Late season surge (8 TDs last four weeks) have Taylor in RB1 territory in 2021.

  Joe Mixon, CIN: Gio is gone. Coach wants Mixon on the field all three downs. Music to fantasy owners' ears.

  Aaron Jones, GB: Low-end RB1 with a new contract. 25 rush TDs the last two seasons.

  Antonio Gibson, WAS: Toe issue is worth watching but Gibson is capable of leaping into the top 10 among RBs.

  Nick Chubb, CLE: Averaged 1 TD per game last season. Impressive efficiency and RB9 finish despite just over 200 touches.

  Najee Harris, PIT: Rookie is expected to start Week 1 and is capable of handling all three downs. A RB2 based on volume alone.

  Austin Ekeler, LAC: 75-catches is not out of the question under OC Joe Lombardi.

  Chris Carson, SEA: Carson has yet to play a full season but will begin as Seattle's lead back.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC: Only topped 100-yards twice during rookie season. Missed 3 games due to injury.

  Josh Jacobs, LV: Fantasy community was down on Jacobs last season despite scoring 12 TDs. Kenyan Drake signed.

  D'Andre Swift, DET: May share time with Jamaal Williams more than fantasy owners want.

  J.K. Dobbins, BAL: Averaged a whopping 6.0 ypc last season. Should see a workload bump but ADP indicates he's not cheap.

  David Montgomery, CHI: Likely to be overvalued after RB7 performance last season. Tarik Cohen returns.

  Chase Edmonds, ARI: Edmonds will split time with Conner but will be a good weekly flex option in PPR leagues.

  Myles Gaskin, MIA: May lose short-yardage and goaline work to Malcolm Brown but remains the starter.

  Miles Sanders, PHI: Lack of receptions (28) hindered Sanders' fantasy value in 2020.

  Mike Davis, ATL: Davis currently has little competition for carries making him a solid RB2.

  David Johnson, HOU: More competition (Lindsay, Ingram) will make DJ a riskier flex option.

  James Robinson, JAC: Will lose value with Carlos Hyde and first-round draft Etienne in the mix.

  Kareem Hunt, CLE: Popular mid-round pick due to enormous upside should Chubb go down with injury.

Darrell Henderson, LAR: Finds himself in Flex range due to Akers injury (Achilles). Will LAR add a veteran RB?

  Zack Moss, BUF: Allen's presence around the goaline caps any upside for Moss or Singeltary.

  Raheem Mostert, SF: Will open camp as the lead back. Wayne Gallman and Trey Sermon wait in the wings.

  Damien Harris, NE: Will handle a good chunk of early-down work but is a zero in the passing game.

Javonte Williams, DEN: Gordon is blocking pathway to RB2 status. Rookie can play all three downs.

  Latavius Murray, NO: Murray has carved out a Flex option role in the Saints offense over the last two seasons.

  Ronald Jones, TB: One-Two punch of Jones and Fournette is back for another run. This time Gio Bernard has been brought in to catch passes.

  Gus Edwards, BAL: With Ingram gone, Edwards has sneaky value in Non-PPR leagues.

Melvin Gordon, DEN: Coaches would like to use three backs including Mike Boone. Gordon's value is shrinking.

  Leonard Fournette, TB: Will split time with RoJo and lose time on passing downs to Gio Bernard.

  Travis Etienne, JAC: Should have immediately value in passing game. How much rushing workload he takes on is still a mystery.

  Tevin Coleman, NYJ: Will get the veteran treatment during camp but may lose work to rookie Michael Carter as the season goes on.

  Jamaal Williams, DET: OC Anthony Lynn seems like Williams as a "A" back. Upside is capped due to expected ineptitude of Lions offense.

  Trey Sermon, SF: Pre-camp injury to Jeff Wilson gives Sermon a better shot at making a significant Year 1 impact.

  Tony Pollard, DAL: Deserves more than 100 rush attempts a season but won't get it as long as Zeke is healthy.

  Devin Singletary, BUF: Concern that Singeltary may take a backseat to Moss in 2021.

  AJ Dillon, GB: Will see increased playing time now that Jamaal Williams has moved on.

  James Conner, ARI: Will play the 1B role along side Edmonds. Should be used in short-yardage situations as well.

  J.D. McKissic, WAS: Pass-down specialist may see opportunities decrease if Gibson is allowed to play more third downs.

  Nyheim Hines, IND: A weekly flex option in PPR leagues posted 63 receptions in 2020.

  Michael Carter, NYJ: 4th round pick out of North Carolina could carve out a role in Year 1.

  Marlon Mack, IND: Coming off Achilles injury suffered in Week 1. Expected to be ready for camp.

  Alexander Mattison, MIN: Back-to-back 400-yard rushing seasons as Cook's backup.

  Rashaad Penny, SEA: This could be Penny's last season in Seattle. He'll begin as the backup to Carson.

  Sony Michel, NE: Another cog in the Patriots RBBC wheel. Will need injuries to become a trusted fantasy option.

  Darrel Williams, KC: Should have an expanded role as the clear No.2 behind CEH.

  Mark Ingram, HOU: Ingram will battle with Phillip Lindsay for carries behind David Johnson.
