O-Line has dropped a level or two this offseason but Elliot still clear cut top fantasy option at running back 
Chet Gresham

I don't think Elliott will get the receptions he needs to pass Bell or Johnson, but his touchdown total has tremendous upside and could push him ahead of those two, especially in Non-PPR.With Eddie Lacy in the fold, Rawls' value takes a big hit. I like Lacy more than Rawls and will draft accordingly.

Elliot had 1,631 yards rushing and 15 rushing touchdowns to go with 363 yards receiving and one receiving touchdown. Playing behind the best offensive line in the NFL, he should be the best back in fantasy in only his second NFL season. Rawls has not proven to be consistent or durable and that makes it hard to rank him as an elite option. He also has competition from RB Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise. He has a chance to be a RB2 this year, but he is very boom / bust.
