Position, Team, NFL Draft Spot: RB, Atlanta Falcons, 5.12

Dynasty Positional Rank: 100+

Redraft Target Round: Unranked, not viable for 2016

Analysis: Brian Hill ran as the workhorse running back for Wyoming in each of his last two seasons, as he totaled 658 touches in those two years. He turned those touches into 3,690 yards and 28 touchdowns. This is a hefty workload for any running back in a two-year period, which is a cause for concern later in his career. He also struggled to contribute in the passing game at times. Hill doesn't have optimal vision both in space and in tight areas. He often times will lower his head and drive for yards rather than looking for other creases and openings in the defense.

Hill was drafted into an elite Atlanta offense, but that could spell trouble for his fantasy production. Hill is not going to see much playing time this season, and Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman will be shouldering the load. Freeman is a free agent after this season, though, and Coleman is a free agent the following season. If Hill establishes himself as a competent running back, the Falcons may be willing to let one of them walk, which would open the door for Hill to see the field. He’s a risky dynasty option, but he has the potential to reward his fantasy owners if he is given the opportunity.
