2017 Fantasy Football Running Back Preview


First up, we will discuss their draft strategies for the running back position. Richard helps us answer questions such as:

  • Are you definitely drafting a running back in the first round?
  • If not, how long do you wait to take your first running back, if that is your strategy?
  • How does your strategy change between standard leagues compared to PPR leagues?

Hot Topics/Questions

Next, on the docket, we get into the hot questions for the running back position, which will include questions about Ezekiel Elliott, Marshawn Lynch, aka “Beast Mode,” and more.

Situations to Avoid and Rookies

After that, we talk about specific running back situations they are avoiding this year. Then, we share our thoughts on the rookie running backs and their relevance for this year from a fantasy standpoint.

Reaches and Steals

Lastly, we mention our Reaches and Steals for the running back position, a new twist on the Sleepers and Busts segment.

Be sure to listen in to get your RB fix!
