Moon Man’s Fantasy Football Chronicles: Top 100 Running Backs

Moon Man’s Fantasy Football Chronicles

Moon Man has thoughts on the Top Running Backs for this upcoming 2017 Fantasy Football Season. The Running Back position is improving for Fantasy Friends. Check out Moon Man’s

TOP 100 Fantasy Football Running Back Draft Rankings (standard scoring/ppr).

  1. Ezekiel Elliot – Dallas Cowboys. Touches, potential touchdowns, behind the best offensive oline in the NFC and Dak Prescott’s game management. Elliot is the perfect number #1 selection for Fantasy Friends. If he doesn’t finish the 2017 season 1st or 2nd in points. He will most certainly finish third.
  2. David Johnson – Arizona Cardinals. With questions surrounding ol head Carson Palmer’s determination to win in real life football. It probably won’t matter considering the potential touches/targets for D.J. but moon man prefers a sure bet in Zeke. D.J. has higher probability of injury since he goes over the middle for passes. Performing like L.T. last season was awesome for D.J. fans but in the NFL every fantasy season is new! With that said, D.J. isn’t Thomas Rawls so draft him 1,2 or 3.
  3. Le’Veon Bell – Pittsburgh Steelers. Yup, D.J. and Le’Veon are Fantasy Gold.
  4. Melvin Gordon – San Diego Chargers. The focul point of an offense lands Gordon in 20+ touches a game land. Still a non believer moon man will place Gordon at #5. With 41 receptions last season, touchdowns and the Chargers stacked fantasy players. Whether Phillip is up or down. He will be facilitating the rock and continue to be a fantasy friend to all of us.
  5. Adrian Peterson – New Orleans Saints. Here is where questions arise. Adrian is not likely to get suspended, injured or play like his football age. So will he get 20+ touches per game or be used out of the backfield? Will Mark Ingram get traded? Will A.P. be All Day or will lightning remain uncatchable in this case? If the top 3 wide receivers in Julio Jones, OBJ and Antonio Brown are gone. Tom Brady and the top 3 running backs are off the board and your sitting at pick 8. Do you take A.P? Moon Man may. Most likely scenario is scooping A.P. in the second through fifth rounds.
  6.  DeMarco Murray – Tennessee Titans. This offense is looking fantasy friendly on paper. Derrick Henry factor means moon man will most likely pass on Murray in round 1 and maybe round 2 as of May.
  7. Jordan Howard – Chicago Bears.
  8. Devonta Freeman – Atlanta Falcons. Tevin Coleman factor.
