Value Plays: Running Backs

The Footballguys staff finds value at the running back position

A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look through the top 150 players and identify players that should outperform their draft position.

Danny Woodhead, Baltimore

Ryan Hester: Steve Smith has retired; Dennis Pitta just re-injured his troublesome hip again, meaning he’s likely out for the year (or his career); and the team’s receivers are newly-signed Jeremy Maclin and notorious burners with great vertical speed but haven’t always shown the ability to be possession receivers. Enter Woodhead, a free agent signing who has registered 80 and 76 receptions in the last two seasons he has finished. Woodhead could easily lead this team in receptions. In fact, the biggest obstacle might be his injury history – not his teammates. But at this price, even if he suffers another injury, he can be replaced in your lineup. If he doesn’t, he’s a huge steal with a realistic 50-catch floor and 80-catch potential. Remember, Joe Flacco finished just one pass attempt behind Drew Brees for the league lead in 2016.
