Is Devonta Freeman The Top Fantasy RB Moving Forward?

Ladies and gentleman, meet the newest elite fantasy football running back. Coming into the season, Freeman was drafted as a mid-to-late round pick with upside, but Tevin Coleman was projected to be the workhorse RB for the team.

Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson both saw 11 carries in Week 4 versus the Minnesota Vikings, but once again Hillman outplayed Anderson.

Matt Jones (RB, WAS) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Round for FLEX/RB2 Upside in PPR CURRENT ADP: 189 STD, 149 PPR ANALYSIS: Okay, so here at RotoBaller we've written about Matt Jones ad nauseam, with an especially strong man-crush by lead NFL editor Edward Gorelik.

Jordan Reed (TE, WAS) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Rounds for TE1 Upside in PPR CURRENT ADP: 229 STD, 186 PPR ANALYSIS: Given the extensive injury history of Reed, I can understand why some fantasy football owners may be shying away from rostering him. But there's a lot to like here with Reed's situation entering the start of the NFL season. Let's take a quick... Read More

Darren Sproles (RB, PHI) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Rounds for FLEX Upside in PPR CURRENT ADP: 128 STD, 120 PPR ANALYSIS: I think we all know what Darren Sproles brings to the table for fantasy football purposes.

Reggie Bush (RB, SF) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Rounds for FLEX / RB2 Upside in PPR CURRENT ADP: 134 STD, 127 PPR ANALYSIS: We have a similar situation here with Reggie Bush, although this may not be as young and sexy as the Matt Jones scenario.

Markus Wheaton (WR, PIT) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Late Rounds for WR3 Upside in PPR CURRENT ADP: 169 STD, 128 PPR ANALYSIS: Even with an injury to their center Maurkice Pouncey, and early season suspensions to Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant, the Steelers are expected to be a high-powered and pass-heavy offense this year led by Ben Roethlisberger. With the news that Bryant... Read More

Brandon Coleman (WR, NO) - 2015 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target in Later Rounds for WR3 Upside CURRENT ADP: 201 STD, 159 PPR ANALYSIS: Whenever the words "wide receiver" and "Drew Brees" are in the same sentence, you have to like your chances in fantasy football. With the offseason departure of non-inspiring Kenny Stills, and target monster Jimmy Graham, the young and talented rookie Coleman should immediately be catapulted... Read More
