2017 Preseason Watchlist: Running Backs

Taking a look at the key depth charts and running backs to monitor in the 2017 NFL preseason

Running back is the highest leverage fantasy position. With a single injury or depth chart shift a player can go from the waiver wire to most starting lineups and vice versa. Here is a look at the running back situations to monitor in the preseason:

Matt Forte vs Bilal Powell

Forte is one of my preferred value backs in 2017. Bilal Powell took over late in 2016 as the Jets were playing out the string but does not have prototypical size and has yet to string together a long history of starting allegiance. Forte is in decline but still a three-down back. The Jets project as a glorified offensive dumpster fire but as we have seen with Jacksonville and other struggling teams, there is fantasy production to be gained regardless of game script. Powell is going around 10 positional ADP spots higher than Forte, which can flip in a hurry if Forte is being treated like the clear starter in the preseason.
