They sweat, they bleed, they run. No one will ever deny how hard running backs play every day. But from a fantasy perspective, some live up to the hype and some fall flat.
Every season, we under or overvalue players in the offseason; it’s the nature of the beast. Whether it is personnel changes around them, scheme changes, or injury concerns, something jumps out and makes us either love or hate a player before the season even begins.
Earlier this week, we looked at a few of the quarterbacks who I believe are undervalued or overvalued based on their Average Draft Position (ADP). Today, we’ll consider some running backs whose ADP doesn’t quite match their value.
(Note that just because I think someone is overrated, doesn’t mean I don’t think they will perform this season. I just think the cost of drafting them is too high. Likewise, if someone is underrated, it doesn’t mean they will be the top fantasy scorer at their position, just that they will outperform their draft position.)
