5. 2nd Round Running Backs, NFL Draft
Sorry if you see this as a bit of a cop-out, but with the NFL draft still days away, it is just too tough to say exactly which of the second tier rookie running backs will have the greatest impact in 2015. Players such as Duke Johnson, and Tevin Colman, among others, all seemingly look to be on their way to being very productive fantasy players in 2015.
Frankly, there are too many undecided determining factors to be looked at when picking which 2nd round running back will have the best rookie season, for me to give you an answer. Factors such as which round the player will go in, what team will take such player, and most importantly will the player be given the needed carries to succeed are all very much unknown at this point.
What we do know is that year after year multiple rookie running backs surprise us, and have strong impacts on their team, see Jeremy Hill. It is up to you to determine which second tier running back will have the most success in 2015. Time will surely lend a helping hand.
