Fully expect me to be above consensus regarding Jaleel McLaughlin this season. Last year, he was electric with every touch he earned. Among all running backs with at least 50 rushing attempts or 20 targets, McLaughlin ranked 14th in explosive run rate, fifth in missed tackles forced per attempt, fourth in yards after contact per attempt, and fourth in yards per route run. Denver made it a point to get him involved in the passing game when he was on the field, as he also ranked first in targets per route run. McLaughlin could easily earn more opportunities this season, as Samaje Perine wasn't amazing last season, and Javonte Williams looked like a shadow of his former self. At this juncture, I'm not worried about Audric Estime and Blake Watson stealing any of McLaughlin's work this season. If McLaughlin earns Sean Payton's trust, he could be an RB3/4 that vaults into steady RB2 production.

Fantasy Impact

Jaleel McLaughlin's day was cut short by a concussion in the Broncos' finale. That's definitely not how he wanted to finish his first NFL campaign, but the undrafted rookie certainly turned some heads when given opportunities throughout the season. McLaughlin rushed for more than 400 yards this season at an impressive 5.4 per carry while adding 160 yards and two scores on 31 catches.
