Duke Johnson (RB - HOU)
3w
Player Note on Duke Johnson (RB - HOU)
With Lamar Miller out for the season, Duke is the favorite to lead this team in touches. They brought in Carlos Hyde via trade and while you may think he is a lock to be the early-down back, Duke can handle a three-down workload as we saw in college when he touched the ball 22 times per game. He comes with both risk and upside, making him a worthwhile mid-round pick.
Carlos Hyde (RB - HOU)

Player Note on Carlos Hyde (RB - HOU)
The Chiefs traded Hyde to the Texans, and while fantasy owners may have wanted him to be a part of Andy Reid's offense, he has an easier path to playing-time with Houston. Duke may still be the early-season favorite to lead the team in carries, but Hyde has a chance to fall into a Jordan Howard type of role before long.
Darwin Thompson (RB - KC)
3w
Player Note on Darwin Thompson (RB - KC)
Thompson moved ahead of Carlos Hyde on the depth chart then the Chiefs traded Hyde so Thompson has been predictably flying up draft boards. At this point, you may have to snag him in the 10th or even 9thth to ensure you don't miss out on this potential league-winner.
LeSean McCoy (RB - KC)
3w
Player Note on LeSean McCoy (RB - KC)
The Bills unsurprisingly moved on from McCoy's enormous contract so he is currently a free agent but don't expect that to last for long. He is still talented and can be a strong backup for a team like the Jets, or perhaps the Texans or Bucs turn to him as their starter. Don't cut him or stop drafting him yet.
Ty Montgomery (RB - NYJ)
3w
Player Note on Ty Montgomery (RB - NYJ)
Le'Veon Bell hasn't exactly been the most durable starting running back and while it is rumored that the Jets are looking for additional help at the position, it is Montgomery now who is the clear backup if anything were to happen, and believe it or not, he has looked terrific this preseason.
Frank Gore (RB - BUF)

Player Note on Frank Gore (RB - BUF)
With McCoy now out of Buffalo, everyone seems to think Devin Singletary will automatically step into the three-down role, but it is just as likely that Gore leads this team in touches. Granted, his ceiling is merely an RB3, but he isn't the worst late-round flier.
Alexander Mattison (RB - MIN)
3w
Player Note on Alexander Mattison (RB - MIN)
It is easy to get excited about Mike Boone but the fact of the matter is that Mattison is the clear-cut handcuff to the frail Dalvin Cook, as evidenced by his draft capital and the touches he received with the second team all preseason. This makes him a high-end backup worth targeting.
Peyton Barber (RB - TB)
3w
Player Note on Peyton Barber (RB - TB)
Barber may be boring and might not be your first choice to start for the Bucs, but it is entirely possible he leads this high-powered offense in carries once again and if he does, it should end up much better than last season because Bruce Arians is magic for running backs.
Devin Singletary (RB - BUF)
3w
Player Note on Devin Singletary (RB - BUF)
With the Bills cutting LeSean McCoy, you might be tempted to take Singletary much higher than you previously were, but he is unlikely to be a three-down back with both Frank Gore and TJ Yeldon still there. And even if he was, this is not an offense you likely want a piece of.
Jacoby Brissett (QB - IND)
3w
Player Note on Jacoby Brissett (QB - IND)
Brissett will be starting for the Colts and while you may think you know his upside, let's remember that he didn't even know the playbook when Indy threw him into the fire after trading for him. His offensive line is much better now, as are his weapons so he may prove to be a worthwhile #2 in two-QB leagues.
