 Not sure he's the #2 RB in Atlanta. Down.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Peterson said he wants to rush for another 1,000 yards this season. Well, yeah, but how does he do that with a healthy Derrius Guice, Chris Thompson, and Bryce Love? It's either Guice isn't going to be ready to start the season, or Peterson is dreaming. If Guice isn't ready to start the year, Peterson should offer low-end RB2 value, but from everything that's been said, they're expecting Guice to be ready. Peterson is likely nothing more than a handcuff to GuiceAfter an impressive rookie campaign where he played more than expected, Smith will look to build on his 117-touch, 467-yard rookie season. He'll play alongside Devonta Freeman who's dealt with some injuries as of late and is now 27 years old. The Falcons may choose to employ a timeshare, but it's likely it's a 70/30 split between the two. Smith would offer weekly RB2 potential if Freeman were to miss any time, making him a valuable handcuff who has some standalone value even without injury
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
With recent news coming out about Derrius Guice dealing with a set back, it seems likely that Washington will run AP into the ground, at least until Guice returns at full strength. That, of course, doesn't mean AP will be efficient or score touchdowns for this lousy offense, but touches do lead to fantasy scoring so don't be ashamed if he is your RB3 entering the season.Smith has flashed at times but that doesn't mean he is even in the same neighborhood for talent or has any shot outside of an injury to take over the starting job from Freeman. If an injury were to happen, Smith would be an excellent flex play, however.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
I will not be drafting AP this season. He's an early down only RB, who's going to split carries with a superior RB. Guice is likely to get stronger as the season progresses, so it's possible that you get a few usable weeks out of him. The issue is that even if he gets some solid volume...he's going to be on one of the worst teams in the league. Washington isn't likely to have many positive game scripts, so it's a fairly easy situation to avoid.Ito is a perfect high upside pick late in drafts. The Falcons spent two first round picks on offensive lineman, and signed more in FA. Freeman has a chance to crush it this season, but he's also suffered a massive amount of injuries in recent years. He's had a pulled hamstring, a hip strain, three separate concussions, an MCL sprain, a PCL sprain, both knee and foot bruises, and most recently required sports hernia surgery. It's not crazy to think his best days might be behind him. With Coleman now in SF, Ito is one more Freeman injury away from being a massive asset in fantasy. That's the upside I'm looking for late in drafts.
