Bernard finished his rookie season as the 16th ranked fantasy back, despite tallying only 170 rushing attempts and 56 receptions. He should have a bigger role in the Bengals offense this year and be a Top 10 running back. Think Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice in his second year with the Ravens.
Stacy looks like the real deal with 1,114 yards from scrimmage and seven touchdowns in his rookie season. He should be a great bet to finish 2014 as a Top 10 fantasy back. The drafting of RB Tre Mason is a little cause for concern, but Stacy should still be the lead back with Mason used as a change of pace and receiving option.

Just short of 1,000 rushing yards in his rookie season. He had 7 rushing TDs. Ball's key to success (and playing time) lie in his ability to execute on Peyton Manning's pre-snap audibles and picking up the blitz when Manning audibles to a pass play. With Knowshon Moreno now with Miami, Ball is in line to be a top RB1 this season.

Giovani Bernard will approach RB1 numbers this year especially in PPR formats but lost a bit of his appeal when the Bengals drafted the talented Jeremy Hill to replace BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
Zac Stacy looked fantastic behind the Rams O-Line last season but the fear was that the Rams would draft a good running back in 2014 and they did just that selecting former Auburn standout Tre Mason. Mason has work to do in pass pro but has the natural talent to knock Stacy out of the RB1 conversation completely by mid-season.

Will handle featured run/pass duties in new OC Jackson's run first scheme.
Projected focal point of his offense, even if it is a mediocre one.

I know Stacy showed he could handle the load last season, but last year's rookie surprise could cede touches to Tre Mason as easily as he took them on in '13.

I love watching Gio run on the field. He is an outstanding RB talent and his PPR upside is amazing. He will be given more workload in 2014 and will see double-digit TDs.
We saw enough in his rookie year to know he can produce double digit TD's and 1,500 combined running yards. He doesn't have name brand so he will slip in fantasy drafts, but is a very strong selection.

Gio is very much on the rise. There is tons to love about his game and role for 2014.
Stacy is a solid runner but Tre Mason's presence could be a real problem.
