When you think running backs in the NFL, big names like Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy and Ray Rice come to mind.

However, when managing a fantasy football team, you have to know almost every possible running back in the league that will get touches, because in an instant any running back can come out of nowhere to make a significant impact in fantasy circles. Just think back to last year when guys like DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and C.J. Spiller all heavily outplayed their draft value.

In this slideshow, I will go over 10 running backs who have a chance to make a name for themselves even if they’re not high on many people’s draft boards.

Excluded from this slideshow will be any rookies expected to get significant, instant playing time (think Trent Richardson and Doug Martin) and guys replacing injured stars (think Isaac Redman).
