Late-Round Rookie RBs to Target in Dynasty Drafts

The 2019 NFL Draft is over, and the preparation for your fantasy football league’s upcoming season should be starting now, not in late August.

Veteran Running Backs Set to Lose Touches in 2019

Running backs these days have a shelf life about as long as raw chicken.

Dynasty Breakouts for 2019 – Running Back

Fantasy football players should never give up on running backs, especially if those backs did not amount to much during their rookie campaigns the year prior. 2018 was the coming out party for three running backs --- Pittsburgh’s James Conner, Seattle’s Chris Carson and Indianapolis’ Marlon Mack. All three were drafted in 2017 but did... Read More
