2021 PPR Draft Rankings

Mike Davis Note

My guess is that analysts are worried about the Falcons adding a free agent running back because even my RB24 ranking feels a bit low for a back who should have no issue getting 15-plus touches per game. That would amount to 240-plus touches on the season. There have been 144 running backs who've hit that mark over the last 10 years and none have finished worse than RB28 (his current ECR). In fact, just 10 of those running backs (6.9 percent) have finished worse than RB20. If the Falcons don't add anyone of significance, I'll be moving him up even more.

Everyone who scouted this year's class of running backs knew that Hawkins wouldn't be a workhorse running back anywhere, but he was a shifty back who might be a decent timeshare back in the right offense. Landing with Arthur Smith on the Falcons depth chart may have been his best shot at relevance, as the Falcons have almost no depth behind Mike Davis. I wouldn't expect more than 5-8 touches without injury, but he's a name worth monitoring if Davis were to miss time.
